  • Willie.....such sweet summer night music...
  • Ditto for you Miss Harmer...
  • Love this Dr. Dog record STILL. Think that means I should buy it...
  • Mass Teen Fainting is going in the car this weekend for listening FOR SURE
  • Nobody writes sweet songs about babies and pregnancy better than Jenny Omnichord...
  • Had to play that strange Avett Bros exchange cuz it made me laugh earlier today..
  • New Salteens!! Little EP as a preview of the full record that comes out in August
  • The new Kate Nash record is worth it just for the inside tray photo...
  • I've been waiting for She and Him on vinyl. Waiting and waiting. So patiently...

interspecies reunion

I will likely *totally* blame this pregnancy for the weep-fest that happened when I watched this super sweet video of a researcher being reunited with a gorilla he raised and released into the wild.

Oh man, have you seen this trailer for the movie "Babies?" I don't know if it's just cuz I'm pregnant but it's killing me with it's cuteness. The Namibian babies at the beginning actually make my belly twinge they're so friggin cute!! And the very last scene in Mongolia? Laughed right out loud. From what I've read the movie follows 4 new babies from Namibia, Mongolia, San Francisco and Tokyo...from birth to their first steps. It's set to release on May 7th and I'm gonna try and track it down in Toronto this week. Knowing me lately, I'll probably need a tissue..
