Driveway moments 12/20 '17
I had to run out for a second, and Folkadelphia (it's a radio show) was on 88.5 WXPN. A song came on, and I listened to it on the short drive home and then couldn't leave the car until I found out what it was.
It's a song called "You Missed My Heart," and it's performed by Phoebe Bridgers. It's a cover... but holy shit, the words, the performance, the arrangement just all took my breath away.
Here's info about it. You can listen to the song there and also read the lyrics.
The Christmas Plague
In other news, everyone around me has been sick with this two-week head cold of death. I've been feeling pretty cocky and invincible until yesterday when I woke up with a giant spike sticking into my throat from my inner ear.
It wouldn't be Christmas without me having a friggin' cold. Matt has it too... though I think he's a day sicker than I am.
We're supposed to be the in-studio on-air guests on WDEL's afternoon show this Friday to sing a few Christmas tunes and to plug our upcoming comedy show at Logan House on January 5th. Let's hope I have a voice that day.
Driveway Moment #2
Driveway Moment #2 just happened now. I am still in the car, now in a totally dark garage because the inside garage light timed out.
I just watched Anne Mollo 's absolutely gorgeous story of Her Winter of Bill (as I call it). I was absolutely enraptured. I got choked up. There were a few times I caught myself not breathing. Thank you Annie-- really. Thank you. What a beautiful story.
Watch it here-- she starts at the 37-minute mark.
