No one will be around on this holiday weekend to actually read this but the fact that I haven’t posted in a few days compels me to at least throw something out there. Despite my infamous loathing of summer, I have to admit, I’m looking forward to it this year due to four exciting concerts on my horizon: (in calendar order) Keane, Deftones, The Police, and Crowded House. I’m most psyched about these last two, both of whom broke up before I had a chance to see them. The Police were the favorite band of my childhood but CH are probably the band who float my boat the most whom I’ve never seen (The Smiths would come in second but there’d be a distance). Everyone knows that Neil Finn is my favorite songwriter ever (or now you do) and I’ve seen him play many times both alone or with Tim but I am kind of melting into a little pool of excitement over CH, despite them being one third dead.

So here’s to the soon-to-be-fab Summer of ’07 and have a relaxing weekend all! I’ll be watching the French Open and then with Pious B at my niece’s Bat Mitzvah. We’ll try to come up with some fun material for the J-Ball, but let me tell you, it’ll probably be slim pickings. Except the food, that ought to be pretty ample. This never sounds quite right but Happy Memorial Day! Remember, our brave men and women in uniform would want you to barbecue and shop!

Crowded House – Love This Life

(Edited 5/27 to add streaming audio… this song is essentially my philosophy of life, so why have to go to Napster to hear it?)
