Before I forget- for those of you who aren’t yet privy to this information, just so’s you know, you can buy The Avett Brothers album I and Love and You on Amazon for FIVE DOLLARS ! That’s the sort of stuff that makes me silly happy as the brothers Avett are particularly talented and lovely to look at and they’re also from my neck of the woods. Well, my original neck of the woods. The northern Carolina woods. I told John, “I just downloaded an Avett Brothers album for five freakin’ dollars!” and he said, “What are the Abbot Brothers?”. So I made him listen and he liked them but then he wanted to know why they didn’t have accents like mine. So we argued over that for a while and later that day we were watching The Andy Griffith Show and discussing how we should’ve named the cats after Mayberry characters (Juaneeter, Floyd, Helen Crump and Rafe Hollister) and he had the nerve to tell me that I sound just like Ernest T. Bass. Someday I’ll youtube a video of the sigh and eye twitch that I have created expressly for those types of comments. It’s like Frank Costanza’s “Serenity now!” mantra. Only less loud.
What I’ve watched: The Young Victoria and Whip-It. Loved both.
