Six Days in Paris – a YouTube montage.

Last week, we were in Paris for Helen’s fairytale wedding. Here is a brief (and shaky) video montage of some of the sights and sounds. Apologies for the camera shake. I had a lot of Cafe Creme.

Music Mondays: Zee Avi, Rhett Miller, Hayes Carll

Trying something new on the blog: Music Mondays.

Every Monday (or so) I’ll post a few of the artists that I’ve been digging lately. I’ll try to keep it on the obscure side so you might actually hear something you’ve never heard. I hope you enjoy.

Today’s tracks:

Zee Avi: Bitter Heart.
She’s opening for Pete Yorn on his current tour. (Rams Head Live July 21).

Here’s a link to her track on the iTunes store.

Rhett Miller: Fireflies
I couldn’t find a video for any of the songs from Rhett’s new self-titled album, so here’s a brilliant track from his last album, The Believer. The song is a duet with Rachel Yamagata.

Here’s a link to Fireflies track on the iTunes Store

Hayes Carll: Beaumont
Hayes Carll toured with Rhett Miller and the Old 97s last year. I learned about him from an ad on facebook. What are the odds?

Here’s a link to Beaumont track on the iTunes store

Natty's not so sure about the new hibiscus plant

A new hibiscus flower blossomed overnight. From Natty’s reaction, you would’ve thought an alien had landed in the yard.
