april is the wild card.

As you may have noticed, I am not participating in the A-Z blogging challenge. Sweet relief! There's no way I was gonna pull that off.

And since I've developed a false sense of no-one-can-see-me, I've switched to a font that does this blog absolutely no favors. The words are difficult to read, but they also LOOK WHIMSICAL, and let's not forget our priorities, here.

Also, no guarantee on the background. I am in IDENTITY CRISIS MODE.


I'm in Martha's Vineyard. This morning I woke up in Boston. Yesterday we went to Maine. This weekend we'll be in Manhattan.

And I've forgotten what day of the week it is (Wednesday. It's Wednesday).

random cat picture says,
"how productive can you really be on this thing?"

Perhaps I will post something that makes more sense tomorrow (now that we have internet again).

Until then, here's some unadulterated nonsense, for all you phone-puter gaming fans:

:: monday mixtape.

The Punch Brothers. "Don't Get Married Without Me."
Because it makes me dance like a loon.

(brief language warning, for anyone who might mind.)

Scott Avett. "Just a Closer Walk with Thee"
(the adorable version):

The Avett Brothers. "Murder in the City:"
(the still does not aptly highlight the video.
the video is amazing.)

Crooked Still. Heart-stopping cover of
Paul Simon's "American Tune:"

And worlds collide here with Aoife O'Donovan joining Chris Thile/Yo-Yo Ma/Edgar Meyer/Stuart Duncan for "Here and Heaven," from their stellar Goat Rodeo Sessions:

And since we're talking about Goat Rodeo, here's "Attaboy," again. Live this time.

And there you have it.
Your very first RwPB* :: monday mixtape
(belated by an hour, but, eh. It's still Monday for all of my crit partners).
Perhaps I'll keep doing this?
*because I didn't feel like typing out rosewood pencil box?

I sure hope you guys like progressive bluegrass.
