I am so very obsessed with Angus and Julia Stone tonight. I listened to them two years ago and loved them, but since I couldn't find anywhere to download (steal) their music, I put them on the back burner and forgot about them. My brother bought their CD and at the end of the summer he put it on my computer. I am so thankful for him and his music taste. Thanks to Danny, my second CD that I (he, actually) owned was O.A.R. I still love their music, even if is a little cheesy. Now that I think about it, it was probably pretty inappropriate for a 9 year old to be singing "Crazy Game of Poker" all summer long, but I'm glad that I did. I became obsessed with Jack Johnson in 6th grade, Ben Harper in 7th. Ben Harper is still one of my favorite artists today and one of the highlights of my high school career was sitting in Row E, middle section with my big brother in Portland, OR, watching Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals and Pierre Vaccia (I'm a terrible concert go-er, but I can't exactly remember if that was his name).
I just took a little break from writing to go check out my old pictures on MySpace. Does anyone remember that? Because I do, and I miss it. It was so much more personal than Facebook. I miss it. But anyway, I think I just picked a new format for my blog. Lists. They're so easy and I make them constantly. So here's just a random collection for a list for today.
