I saw you at the Giant Eagle on High St. You were wearing an orange jump suit and a straw hat. We reached for the same cart. You reached for my hand, but you grabbed my heart. I looked into your eyes. Couldn't quite tell what color they were because your left eye had a charming twitch. I suspect your eyes were blue, but we should probably get together to confirm. When I wouldn't let go of the cart, you started screaming. Despite the ear piercing noise, I was still enamored.

I hope this reaches you. I've been having constant nightmares about our encounter. Email me back, tell me what I was wearing.

Album Title Of The Week

If I had a nickel for every time I said to myself, "man that would make a great album title", upon hearing some clever phrase or odd sentence, I would have lots and lots of nickels. So I have decided to immortalize(in blog form) some album titles that I think are brilliant. I will attempt to post one every week, if my memory cooperates.

The first ever honoree in the ATOTW series is the Toronto band The DoneFors...and the album title:

"How To Have Sex With Canadians"

Audio Nostalgia: "Drawerings"

Long live the shuffle mode. I don't think I am overstating it when I say that it's one of the greatest advancements in all of civilization. And today, it took me to 1993...(God, the year I graduated high school) and this wonderful, long forgotten(by me anyway) Dinosaur,Jr song.

I keep passing you on the way to the fridge. I'm sure you've noticed me - I think you're looking at me out the corner of your eye when I get in and out of the bed we share. I waved at you several times over the weekend as we were sitting down to meals. At breakfast this morning you ate the oatmeal I made, but didn't seem to notice my gesticulating. I know it's unlikely you'll see this, but if you do and something clicks, get back to me. We don't talk much anymore.

Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle

The artist formerly known as Smog is back with another album. Bill Callahan's latest 'Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle' offers up nine more songs of his trademark dark folk. I dare say this record almost sound hopeful though...with several songs featuring beautiful string accompaniment and lyrics which are even a little more optimistic. Hopeful by Bill Callahan standards anyway...whatever it is, it's a gorgeous album.

The record hits stores on April is a track to preview. Enjoy.

One mroe stroll...

It's been a weirdly coincidental week between me and music. I keep getting one album after another from one of my old, battle tested favorites whose debut albums will forever be in my own personal hall of fame. Pearl Jam's '10' reissue, getting to hear the new PJ Harvey, and now Gomez's new record has made it's way to me.

The back pages of this blog are rife with the love I have espoused on that Gomez debut record 'Bring It On.' And while nothing they have done since has quite hit me with the same fervor of THAT record, I still love the band(especially live - incredible) and checking out what they are up to.

That brings us to the new record, A New Tide, which hits stores on March 31st, Only got to sit with it for a brief time, but I think it could be true love. Here is one track that got the repeat treatment...enjoy.

You're in your early forties and getting treatment for a long history of addiction... maybe more, but you didn't say much about it in the few groups we had together. They kept you longer than you were supposed to stay because of complications. I'm a stupid pothead/sex addict/ex-drunk/bipolar/trauma-ridden teenage dirtbag who is unfortunately too old to continue being a teenager. I got out early because I smiled and nodded and asked the right questions in therapy and had my mom around to put my life back together for me.

Anyway, I know this is totally gross and unethical, but I thought you were an interesting human being and funny and kind of wished I could get to know you better (even if just because you seemed to know the road better than I do) and it seemed like we could share a few laughs about some of the bullshit. Drop me a line if you want to color or play fucking Uno or something. If not, I hope you've reached the outside world and that it is being kind to you.a

Willing to lower my standards for you, also I will change - 28

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]
Date: 2009-03-25, 1:22PM EDT

I am not what you would call desperate, but I do realize when my plans are not coming to a satisfactory end. I have therefore decided to lower my standards and propose that I will change for you. Now there are some stipulations involved in this endeavor. A sort of contract if you will. Here are some of my concessions.
- I will stop liking at least 2 genres, artists of music for ones that you deem acceptable in exchange for me picking what movies we see 75% of the time.
- I will give up 2 hangouts with my friends a month for 1 hangout with your friends (exception: your friends are bitter losers who hate men and complain alot)
- I will take care of your cat/dog/bird/fish when you are out of town in exchange for you dressing up like a schoolgirl/nurse (exception: No kids)
- I will lower my standard of your physical fitness/personal hygiene if you promise that you will start to read some books
- I will pay for most dinners so long as you are ok with me wanting to have sex with you from time to time (exception: Dinners over $60 should entitle me)
- You will laugh at my jokes in exchange for me listening to your stories
I believe that is a good start and we should be able to add other amendments to our arrangement after we have talk through a few things. I would like to get some feed back on this treaty before the signing ceremony, so if you have anything to add, let me know.

Great Guy Looking To Join A Couple - m4ww - 29 (Short North)

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

This may sound a little nutty, but you don't get what you want in life if you never ask.

I'm a fun, honest, and good looking guy who is looking to start a relationship with a female couple.

Why a female couple? I've been in a house of three before. Things generally seem to work best when the guy joins a pair of women who already have a strong bond between them. Three strangers trying to fall in love almost always ends badly. Also, I just don't get most straight women.

Aside from the math, I'm looking to have a normal relationship. I love to cook for my partner(s), see movies, travel, and make music. (Double points if either of you play an instrument)


Could you BE any more greedy? God man...this is craigslist, not Fantasy happy to find a nice girl with all of her teeth.

If you have stumbled across this little plot of cyberspace over the past month or so you have probably noticed the ever present, probably annoying, Coachella countdown that I am doing. Guilty. But I really do look forward to this weekend more than anything. It's a chance to drop life for a few days, get together with a bunch of super cool, like minded people, and just bask in the glory that is the beautiful scenery in that part of California and hours upon hours of incredible live music. In other words: Heaven.

Last year was extra special, because we somehow convinced our friend and talented singer/songwriter Henry Toft from Denmark to literally trek halfway around the world to take in Coachella. This year, with the global economic meltdown and all, it just wasn't really possible for him to make the trip. He will be so sadly missed. Through the modern miracle of texting and twittering we will be showering him with CONSTANT real time updates...unfortunately you can't send a good beer buzz or the visceral joy of seeing the Hold Steady over an online least not yet. But he will be there in spirit.

Here is a song he wrote last year, in the airport actually...the day after Coachella...brought on by sweet exhaustion and the sort of glorious sensory overload that only 72 hours of live music and living in extremely close quarters with great friends can give you. I love it...enjoy.

This has "bad movie plot" written all over it...and it would not end well.

I think the music was Joy Division. I think I had a few drinks as well. But I was intoxicated by something else- your body. Your glorious, goddess-granted gyrations of pure expression. It was like you were channeling some otherworldly vision, full of desire. You were in your own world and that's what we had in common. The rest of the space, the people and all of reality slipped away- not just for a moment- but for a length of time that I have no way of calculating, no point of reference.

You knew I was watching and that turned you on. I can only muse at the command you have over your body. I can only long for that same attention to detail. Perhaps it is in fact a connection. Of body to feeling, of desire to action.

In the absence of some sort of label or name for this connection, I'll refer to physical evidence: a blue-black, fading mark on my skin confirming the truth of this experience.
