New Stellastarr* Single and the IT Crowd
I LOVE Stellastarr*!! It's called gushing, and that's how you do it. Every new song of theirs becomes my favorite.
Mandy the bass player sings for a good long time in the middle which I believe is a first. She's usually just back-up.
Here is the new Stellastarr* single, while it lasts:
Also, I've been watching this british TV show called "The IT Crowd" because I'm an IT guy and the show is about IT guys. Man I laughed a lot. It's British so it's cheesy, but the boss is really funny and the bits over the end credits are worth seeing the whole show for.
At the least, watch the first one so you get the jist of it, and then watch the fourth one (The Red Door) because that Goth guy who lives in their server room is hilarious.
Man I'd love to be cast in the American version of this (ATTN producers, I did play Nathan Detroit in my college production of Guys and Dolls. I would later marry the stage manager.)
Here they are at YouTube.com:

Stellastarr* is Awesome!!!
We got them after a day off, which is usually means a good performance. Also, the Norva has a hot tub and steam room in the dressing rooms, so maybe that helped hype them up.
They really put on an awesome show.
And since Jaime was dancing so hard, the band threw her one of their drumsticks! I mean, I can't claim they were trying to throw it specifically to Jaime; but, I'm convinced they were rewarding her for dancing the WHOLE show. Nice work Jamz, you deserve it.
On the drive home I had to pick up corn meal. Then get home. Whip up cornbread, reheat the soup from yesterday, eat, clean up, and head to the Stellastarr* show at the Norva:
On the way to Stellastarr*, Jaime snapped this shot of the sunset over the Coal Fields downtown:

We heart Stellastarr*. Jaime and I are sore from dancing so much!
A-mazing albums! A-mazingly good songs.
One of the best shows I've ever seen.
After the Stellastarr* show, we went over to Granby Street to Empire for a few Tapas dishes. We had Sesame Seared Tuna (just like we watched Alton make on Good Eats just hours before!)

Updated Spinto Band's Kiss From a Rose Cover song -
Ummmm, TBS, 10:30PM Eastern, this is the worst Family Guy episode I've seen yet. I only catch them here and there, and this one is undoing so much of the enjoyment I've ever had from this show. Episode #309, you killed this show for me. This show is dead to me, Colbert style.
I'm loving this Flickr stuff since Whiskerino ended. Um, find me on flickr...I dare you!
Anywho. I'm off to see Stellastarr* tomorrow at the Norva!!!!! I heart Stellastarr*!!!
From the RNRNRW archives: the first time I saw Stellastarr* (and played pool with the Killers upstairs before thier Richmond show two years ago)
(Two years ago, before the Stellastarr* show in Richmond, we ate at Blue Cactus. We eat there most Fridays lately:)
