With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
Welcome home Commander! Ya done mighty good.
So.. I don’t know if anybody is actually interested in this and it’s probably a little narcissistic, but this is from my third year in a legitimately great choir when I was 17, and I had the solo which took me FOREVER to learn.
Also yes Civ IV aww yee.
Song of the Day
Bit By Bit - Mother Mother
I don’t know what it is about these guys but their songs just fix me when I’m messed up. They dislodge my bad feelings like a toothbrush and plaque.
In honor of the end of the NHL lockout and playing up my Canadian heritage, as usual.
Wincing the Night Away by The Shins is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Went for a run today and listened to the entire thing. Now I’m on the train and listening to it again. I love it because it’s just genuinely so, so good and has always put me in a better mood no matter what. Like a cup of tea on a rainy day. It also reminds me of cruising in my jeep with my boys (and ladies) in high school, possibly the first time I was aware that I felt so blissfully like I just belonged, heart and soul.
I’ve just been feeling very comfortable the past few days, like I’m exactly where I should be in life right now. I’m just enjoying it while it lasts. Happy.

Phenomenal and breathtaking, last night, being in the crowd at their feet. Been listening to this one on repeat feeling a little like a peeled potato: vulnerable, emotionally needy, and prone to dramatic language that I try to offset with self-deprecating and/or absurd humour.
I just got back from the Mumford & Sons concert and it was absolutely out of this world. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros opened and again, holy shit. They all came onstage for the final encore.. there were about 15 or so people playing a Fleetwood Mac cover. Ugh. My heart.
I was pretty much right at the front too. I could see the sweat on their brows. They have some of the most beautiful songs… SO happy I got to go. There are a few blog posts I need to write so I’ll write all about everything tomorrow.
Night losers. Love you all. x
Song of the day: Some Nights - Fun
God, I love harmonies.

Song of the evening dedicated to my mama, because I know she had a hard time letting me go at the airport tonight. I love you!
This song is getting me through cleaning and packing today. Also errands. Oh and the gym.
