The Avett Brothers are one of my new favorites. Their new album, “Emotionalism” is a blend of bluegrass rock with a true album feeling.

I would like to thank Ryan for giving me Arcade Fire… Hank, you will LOVE this band. If the Cure, U2 and coldplay had a baby, it would be Arcade Fire… New album: Neon Bible

Josh Ritter is a great singer/songwriter with a “full” sound… Thanks to Shannon!

Corinne Bailey Rae is everything that I wish Norah Jones would have become. Catchy, soulful and beautiful… I feel that I am a bit late to her party, but I am glad I showed up.

I found Laura Veirs on the NPR website and decided to give her a try… I am glad I did. Maddy will like her, as well as any Swedish person.

I am off to Milwaukee tomorrow to have a “dudes” weekend with Jeff, Sam and Lance. Jeff and I will be driving the 9 hours to the great north, while Sam and Lance will be taking planes and trains… I am fairly sure that the beer population of Milwaukee will be hurting after Saturday night!

Here is a picture of the stadium that we are going to see the Brewers play the Rockies.

I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last night… IT WAS AWESOME!!! I want to see it again… I am not sure what imaginary universe I love more; Star Wars or Harry Potter.

I got a new flat panel 22 inch monitor to hook into my laptop… It is BOSS!!!

I had to construct a new desk to hold it… More on this later.
