1. Sorry I haven't posted in a while
2. I'm going back to Philly soon and I'm going to make a point of having bands who are going to or who have just played in the area.
Monsters of Folk [Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Yim Yames (aka Jim James from My Morning Jacket), M Ward (from ummm....M Ward) and Mike Mogis] are planning a big concert this November. It's going to be in the Academy of Music which was built in 1850 - basically R5 is doing a good job of making it sound awesome. Here's a Monsters of Folk song for you:
The picture at the top is one of my niece last August. We're going back to that lake in a week, and I cannot wait. I've gone there every summer since I was born and so have like 6 other generations of my family. It's literally my favorite place in the world. Last year I wrote in the little camp journal we keep that some famous guy once said - the best way to see how you've changed is to return to a place that remains the same.
Our vacation spot is the place I have counted on to be the same year after year. I'm excited to go there to relax and reflect and see if/how I have changed. (I think seeing my niece grow and change is even better.) I know though that whatever will be will be and after a vacation there I'm always content to 'lay my head against my elbow and the window / let my wheels go'
