swell season!


If you are reading this, and you haven’t seen the movie Once, go watch it immediately. Then come back and finish reading. Ok?

So now, all my serious Once-lovers out there – The Swell Season are finishing up a new album {October 27 can’t get here fast enough, and its even the day before my third anniversary – hint hint}, and NPR has done one of their Tiny Desk Concert’s with the ever adorable Glen and Marketa. I had the pleasure of seeing them live last year at the historic Ryman Auditorium, and they were amazing. I cannot wait for this album, and hope they come back to Nashville so I can be entranced by their incredible music once again.

Warning!!! Another Twilight-Themed Post Is Happening Now.

I love NPR. I love how nerdy people who love NPR are. And I love that I feel smarter when listening to NPR. Because, we all agree, NPR is for smart people. Right?

So. Today, when reading some Google Reader feeds about vampires, (yes. go ahead and laugh. I have all my Twilight blogs under that category) imagine my surprise when I stumble upon THIS POST from Confessions of a TwiCrack Addict talking about Brad Meltzer revealing his vampire love on All Things Considered. A snippet below:

And with that gender gauntlet thrown, let me say to you as a meat-eating, Entourage-watching, sports-loving (OK, I really don’t love sports, or actually understand sports) — heterosexual man who can’t sit through a single show on Lifetime television, let me loudly proclaim: I, Brad Meltzer, love the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.

Now this is the part where I’m supposed to make an intellectual disclaimer like: I don’t really love it, but I appreciate it for what it is.

But let me be clear here. I love it. I love Twilight. I love Bella, and I love Edward.
