Iron and Wine

Last Monday I got to go see the AMAZING 
Iron and Wine at the venue Terminal 5 in NYC.   I have been a big fan for a few years now.   Sam Beams voice and style never get old.   To me he is classic!   
The show really was awesome!  Sam had GREAT interaction with the crowd and he was actually REALLY funny!  I'd say of all the shows I have ever been too, he had the best sense of humor and was the most responsive to the audience.  
Who would have guessed? 
He mostly played his new stuff but threw some older songs in there too, which I was happy about since that is really what I like the best.  

The tour was for the new album, The Shepherds Dog. This album is quite a bit different from the previous albums because there is a full band rather than basically just Sam and his Guitar. Even though I am more fond of Sam's older stuff, it was still a pleasure to see him live.
Well that is my little Iron and Wine review.  If for some strange reason you haven't heard of his music yet I suggest you check it out ASAP (like I said before older stuff is my favorite) and if you have, then listen to him again and remind yourself how good it is!  

For some reason I couldn't get the video I took to upload but this one is from the exact same show I was at.  I was closer than this person though!

Dream Girl

I am in LOVE with Francoise Hardy!
She is a dream girl.
I think everything about her is lovely!

I love her music, I love her style, I love her hair,  I love that she is French, I love that she is a sixties girl...

Francoise Hardy, je t'aime!

Sometimes I think I should have lived in the sixties....and been her...

Good Luck Obama

GREAT!  So OBAMA is in!

Now all he has to do is end/win the wars, fix the economy, reform health care, tackle global warming, and rebuild relationships with allies.  I will be very impressed if he can do it.....

Obama has a big job ahead of him!  This will be a tough time to be president.  He even said himself

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America - I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you - we as a people will get there."

Props to him for taking it on.  It will be interesting to see what changes happen.

Good Luck Obama!
