I am out of coffee. I sense a huge disturbance in the Force.
We finally found my giant spoon and fork and hung them in what for most people would be a breakfast room but Kahuna and I refer to as the ‘coffee bar’. They frame a wood and metal bakers rack that holds the coffee pot, cracker jars of coffee, mugs and various other supplies. It is a lot for people who only drink one cup a day but I really enjoy that one cup. Now the spoon and fork are mocking me.
Added a link to a stream of Sweet Saint Me on Suburban Home Records in the Two Cow Garage review post. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the album you should check it out.
For the person who asked, I am working on the Opera problem but I think it is going to be a “theme” issue rather than a wordpress or host provider issue. The only thing I have in Opera is the Wii and getting access to it in my house is not the easiest of tasks. Maybe when Scooter has her nap this afternoon. I am using an older theme and I suspect it doesn’t support Opera. This is not a huge problem as I have been looking a changing themes for a few weeks now. I just keep hitting road blocks. The Artisteer themes I made all break formatting when I try to use them. (Yes, I am a annoyed) I have found a couple of themes from the wordpress.org site I like but after the total crashing, smashing, destruction of my blog the last time I tried a theme change I am a little hesitant to risk chaos again. But, if the blog looks different or odd (well odd to anyone not using Opera – grin) it is just me bravely trying out new themes.
So I picked up Lydia off the new album Sweet Saint Me and liked it enough to start impatiently waiting for the rest of the album to release. A few days ago Virgil Dickerson asked if we¹ would pass the word along of the new release. I was all set to do it but I hadn’t heard the rest of the album. I looked everywhere for a site that was streaming it, but still no luck. Virgil psychically divined my -need- for the album² and whoosh! – suddenly I could pre-order the album from Suburban Home Records.
So I did.
My order included a free digital download of the album and what I am assuming will be a really cool coozie. I have listened to some of the songs several times but have only listened to the full track list once. So far I like it. My favorite at this point is My Great Gatsby. I also like Lydia and The Soundtrack to My Summer. Overall, the songs are bitter and a little³ dark but the writing is very good. The entire album is very good.
Okay, there are a few live vids of the band performing tracks off the new album but the sound quality on the ones I found is just terrible. So here is one of Lydia with good sound quality, just…er…it isn’t a vid. Hah! Found a great video of Lydia! Enjoy!
Sweet Saint Me from Two Cow Garage comes out October 24th. You can pre-order the album from Suburban Home Records and download the digital version to enjoy until your CD or vinyl arrives. You can also check out tour dates for the band while you are on the site.
Edited on Oct 28, 2010 to add – Here is a stream of the entire album you can listen to for free or purchase and download. Enjoy!
¹ meaning fans of the band
² or maybe he read my email – it’s a toss up
³ okay, okay – some of the tracks are very dark
