As much fun as it is to "get an email" from "Richard Ashcroft" (see below), it is really not fun to see that he is "supporting" Coldplay. Ick. What universe am I living in where Clodplay (I think that's what I want to call them, now) is one of the biggest bands around-- the first UK band to actually "break" the US in a really long time.
Why couldn't Travis do it? Fran has the cutes (the whole band even has the non-threatening cuddle-able sexuality that the 13-year-olds can dig) they have the melodies, the accessibility--I don't get the Yanks sometimes and I am one. I am an Anglophile, but I still am a full-fledged Tom Petty-ed American girl. (I think I could live in MaDchester right now--or maybe just on December 19th, again, see below).
*I want to write more on this...I have more to say.
*I feel really good, physically-- I had been having terrible, life-altering allergies and now... they're gone! Could be the drugs I got from the MinuteClinc (uh...yep, prolly) or the awesome "work trip" I went on Tuesday night to Duluth (no, but that sounds better). The air was clean and fresh and our hotel was on The Edge (that's what the hotel is nick-named) of Lake Superior. We went to the this precious, quaint, dirty, hole-in-the-wall place, The Anchor Bar where they have perfect quality hamburgers for $3 and $5 pitchers of Leinie's red. C'mon! It was peaceful and relaxing, and I'm telling you my allergies disappeared. (and yes, Paul, Elizabeth and Cate-- you are all correct.)
*I have a semblance of a vacation sort-of-planned!! Whoot! Going to Chicago with Adrian on September 25th. Then I have to move out of my slummy apartment the day I get back. damn.
*I know I need to (and really, really want to) write up my meeting with Juila, 14-year-old music goddess woman-child. I visited her at the Fair--she's working at this lil' ice cream place. How perfect is that? *sigh* I am so obsessed with the Fair. What a wonderful, wonderful place. I'm going for the second time this Sunday with my pops. I have been to the minnesotastatefair every summer of my life--since I was three weeks old.
* I *really* ReAlLy want to write about seeing the White Stripes (my third time, whoa) and all the feelings and ambitions it stirred up inside of me. Stir it up.
*So, those of you who care: I plan on writing more sooooon.
