1. I visited the National History museum, and got to see the actual flag that inspired the national anthem. Sufjan's take on the song is now haunting me.
2. You recognize that voice from Kings of Convenience.
3. "You only live a day, but it's brilliant anyway."
8. Guess you're on your own with this one. But look for it, it is worth it. Allison Bailey, if you are reading this, I think this is a concert that you would dig. We should go to it.
10. Maybe I'm behind of the times, but ambient surf is quickly replacing dubstep in my music go-to lists.
12. No vid for this one either
13. The actual track has a pretty prominent drum beat. Kind of like Pinback. I kind of like this pared down version. It is very pretty.
