know who i love?

you.

know what bands i love?

lots.

know what band i love who just came out with a new album today?

austin’s finest band

thats the cover.

and guess what? the record inside is just as good as the cover outside.

only reason i know Quiet Company is because their singer song writing front man Taylor Muse

is married to a long time blogger amigo of mine Leah Muse

when she told me she was getting married i was all but youre so young.

and she was all, but omg you hafta meet Taylor.

and when i met Taylor i was all, ok got it.

then when they told me about Quiet Company i was all, meh sounds lame and what a lame name.

but when i heard them and saw them live i was all OMG

and this album is better than all their others and all their others were DAMN GOOD, SON

i cant wait for the world to discover them. cuz they will.

last years SXSW Bill Murray discovered them. or was that two years ago?

yeah it was two years ago.

cuz i took this pic of them a day after Bill Murray was all OMG

i think you should spend $8 on this record of theirs.

right now if you get the mp3s off amazon they throw in all these extra tunes.

pretty awesome deal, actually.

so glad they have a new record!

and you can hear it here afore you buy it.

ps Leah is the best photographer of all

canada i miss you so

your sites your smells

the way the dawns early light played in your hair.

i know there were people who didnt want me up there, and didnt want your down herrre.

but you said it best the other day in kingston – haters gonna hate, just pity them and rock on.

just another thing i love and miss about you; you really dont care about anything other than

love, beauty, sweet style, old school hockey,

and a christian way of life.

i need to wash my hair and iron my shirt but i wanted to let you know that this morning i was thinking of you.

the way the shadows creep across your cobblestone streets

how the tender crepes fold across little strawberry hills

how even the tiny kids speak french so sweetly before they throw their Legoland cap across the bistro

and then accidentally bang their tiny heads against the corner of the table

and cry and cry and cry

as the cafe quietly laughs inside.

i miss you canada something awful.

you were the best part of my extended play summer vacation.

your eyes were the gatefold of the double album of love.

your lips may not always smile but yr eyes say oui

even for me,

a punk ass american

from the streets.
