The sun will bring back treasures for us

Dear friends,

We've been to a few places in the past year. We have been to Belmar and Isla Mujeres. We made it to Chincoteague but we didn't see the swimming ponies. We went to Woodstock and endured well water showers and overcame bear-nerves. Also Moosebeck!, where we listened to Vivaldi in a pseudo hobbit house. Sometimes we don't go too far. We went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and counted over a dozen rabbits. That was a good trip.

It's not always adventure. At home, he's witnessed my walking into doorways several times weekly and sat through many demonstrations on "the proper way" to do a booty dance. He's endured several marathon viewings of America's Next Top Model AND Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School. And amazingly, he hasn't run away screaming. Even when I argue about bands we love. Apparently, he's cool with that.

This mix is for Jeremy.* Some of these songs are very familiar and have been chosen for their familiarity and some not so much, but I think they will make him laugh.

* Considering my feelings for the gent, this mix could've been WAY cheesier. I was this close to including R.Kelly's You Remind Me of My Jeep.

Besides, this mix also includes songs about unrequited love, bad love and baboon love.

** These mp3s, for understandable reasons, will only be available for a VERY limited time. If you like a song, email me, I'll tell you where you can buy the album.

And hey, is that pic destined for the cover of the Boss's solo LP? It's sublime is what it is.

Well if there's a more romantical photographic portrait of J.Jo out there in the world, I've never seen it.

What album is that PJ Harvey track from?

Real exchange from Saturday:

Tina: Oh, Tavie, you're Jeremy's... um...
Tavie: Underling?

That is from Uh Huh Her which has grown on me slowly, song by song. This is the hot track at the moment. It just suddenly made sense. Plus I love that Badlands/True Romance sound.
