Well, before you read this post you should scroll down to Sunday's and memorize the date & location of my reading this coming Friday. Go. Ok, now that's you've done that and are entirely planning on attending the reading, you can continue.
My Canadian friend got my into Feist a few months ago because the singer is Canadian (right?) and I really love this song, "I Feel It All." I like this version but unfortunately you have to look at Jimmy Kimmel's face for a second or two before it begins:
This is the pretty adorable video to "1234," the song that got her on TV:
Last night I was walking home from a reading and to the deli near my apt to buy some bubbly water and I saw this lone construction worker atop the elementary school that's under repair. The whole building is encased in scaffolding, and since it was 10pm it was very dark. He was standing on the second to highest level of scaffolding, roped to the wall, drilling with one spot light on the small area he was working on. The light was an eerie green, a personal beacon. I don't know, there was something very beautiful about it, harnessed to your work in the dark, one man and his one light. I watched him for a bit and then went home.
