did i already blog about this?

i found this band, the paper raincoat while i was interning this summer but all they had on itunes or anything was a little 4 song ep! well their self-titled full length came out on itunes three weeks ago and i haven't stopped listening to it since. so just in case i've never blogged about them, check em out (my fav is sympathetic vibrations):

also this won't disappoint 3:33 it's so lucy in the sky with diamonds-y

first day of my life

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning?
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you just woke up

And you said
"This is the first day of my life
Glad I didn't die before I met you
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery

what i would like right now

right now, what sounds perfect is this:

  • to live in this cottage by myself in europe in cold fall weather
  • it would have a wood-burning stove
  • piles and piles of heavy handmade quilts
  • my bible and journal
  • a few instruments
  • quotable, relational books
  • a big dog
  • willow trees out in the yard and more vines that grow up the front
  • only james taylor, sigur ros, and sleeping at last on vinyl to listen to
  • thick fleeces
  • and warm things to drink.
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness."
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ's power may rest on me.

i'm very impressed (and very sick...hence a million posts already today)

Amazon released their Top 100 Albums of 2009 yesterday, and paired it with the Bestselling Albums of 2009. I am seriously so impressed with Amazon's choices:

Thanks for not being all mainstream-y/top 40ish and giving other music a chance. Neko Case vs. U2 for #1? I love it.
here, enjoy this cover. especially if it's raining right now.

but wait it out cause she makes it more brandi-ish at like 2 minutes.
also, her new album give up the ghost is really really good.

the paper raincoat is finally on itunes! if you don't listen to them, do.
