a week of this.

I haven't blogged in a week. I have no legitimate excuse except my soul has been taken over by instant Netflix(heat go away, so i can get some fresh air!!), the occasional book browsing and coffee shop stops, bouts of writing, and books by Anthony Bourdain (I'm captivated by his crudeness). I DO work, sometimes.

I'm sure I've mentioned my love for NPR's tiny desk concerts, haven't I? They are, exactly what they imply- An unplugged, intimate concert in NPR's main music office. You can hear the 20 enthusiastic claps and shuffling around in the background after each song ends. It makes me feel closer to the performance as in, we are the lucky few to be privy to such an event.

They've featured Wye Oak, Damien Jurado, Omara Portuondo, etc. I enjoy the hearty mix of talent that swings through there.

Here's famous gospel singers, The Blind Boys of Alabama! I love that you can tell the audience is enjoying every minute of it.


  1. i'm in LOVE with Wye Oak right now and thought of you because they're from Baltimore...do you like them?

  2. I do like them! you should watch their tiny desk concert on NPR's site. I really love the dueling vocals.

  3. I didn't know you had a blog! I saw wye oak when they where in Detroit, and it was amazing! Xoxo

  4. i'm glad you found me! i'm waiting for wye oak to play back in their hometown of baltimore soon.
