Hi again! Yeah, Portishead were PHENOMENAL. Beth Gibbons was just as sexy as I've always imagined her to be live. And I think that they did very well with the new songs. Plus they almost started the show with Glory Box and almost ended it on Roads, which is how I had it in mind before the concert, so that was effing great. The supporting act was strange, to say the least. A British instrumental band who call themselves Kling Klang.

I'm afraid I don't know more than two songs by Crowded House either, so if you make the tape, I'd like to hear it too. I'd say you can always adjust the tracklist how you want the songs to play if you think the selection is otherwise perfect. Just to add something to it. But if the compilation is flawless, it's flawless.

I don't know. The show starts in less than four hours... Wow, it really bums me that I'm going alone. I've been lying in my bed for four hours watching movies and watching the traffic outside my window.

Yes, I speak a little bit French, mais c'est très mal. I prefer writing, I like grammar. :) And Spanish is such a cool language too-1 I want to learn it so bad! Maybe after I've got a good hang on my French.

Now if you'll excuse me I will continue to watch Lost in Translation and then I'll go out and buy me a new pair of shoes. And THEN I will see Portishead. Au revoir !

Oh yessss. This Friday. I'm really excited! The only down side to it is that no one I know got tickets, so I'll be going alone. Which doesn't REALLY matter, I guess.

Nope, I don't speak German unfortunately. It's true, though, it's very popular here. I decided to learn French instead, but German's so much easier for us to learn. But I don't understand a word of it. Anyway. German teachers tend to be a bunch of tight assholes - pardon my French.

Yeah, it's ridiculous. I mean, who the fuck sits through a four-course dinner while R. Wainwright is performing. I'm sorry, it really gets to me, probably because I want to see him so bad..

Have you tried hitting your friend up on facebook? Very few people aren't on it, I think. It's almost an epidemic over here.

Ha ha, we're wealthy and have all the time in the world, that's why you see Danes everywhere. ;)

I met Claude one time and he was a rad dude. You probably know this already, bu Andrew Weiss used to be in Rollins Band too. Unfortunately, he was out of the band during the only period i find them listenable. They would have been a great band if Rollins hadnt been in it.

I think we were posting to one another at the same time. Cool! Good Reads has been great. For as much as you love music, you should check out last.fm also.

Greetings. *wish I'd seen Eno perform :( * Falkner has some amazing songs - solo work, Grays and with Jellyfish. Almost Famous is my second favorite film. Today I learned that there is a program addition for Firefox so that the songs I listen to on Pandora scobble to last.fm. Waa hoo! If you don't know last.fm, I didn't type anything dirty. And finally, I wish I could have seen Lisa Germano tour with Neil Finn. Happy mixing.

Yeah, Ive heard his stuff is different than Ween, but all of those guys are so awesome, im sure I'll like it.

That does sound like the best summer of my life too, even though it didnt happen to me, just thinking about it is enough. Deaner seems like he'd be a funny dude, is that how it is? Any Harford albums you would recommend starting on?
