Maybe Ian had a bad incident once with someone who was already injured? I mean, I get your point, AND it is a somewhat higher level of liability than signing an object and handing it to someone.

I post because a close friend of mine (former college roommate, Mike) had a VERY different experience with him. We had seen the Ian Anderson show in Seattle's Moore Theater on Saturday night (November 2009) and then Mike saw the Sunday night version in Spokane (where he now resides).

Quote:
...The Spokane show last night was excellent as well. He had fun with his “global cooling” story as there was still a little snow on the ground here and the temperature was quite low. I just returned from coffee at the Davenport and had the good fortune to speak with Ian, the bass player, and the woman on viola for a few minutes. I suspected I might see them as... the hotel has an arrangement with both the Fox Theater and the Knitting Factory. I found out from the bass player that the six string was custom made for him by a friend in Ireland and when I asked about never seeing him tune up on stage he just said “it’s a very nice instrument and holds its tune well”. He was VERY interested in how they sounded to the audience, and asked me several questions about the mix and where we were seated when he learned I was at both shows. Ian was surprisingly friendly and asked me a few questions about both shows as well. He signed a copy of Aqualung I just happened to have with me and said he expects to be back as he just received an invitation to perform with the Spokane Symphony that he plans to accept...


Yes, I did call him out for "just happened to have" a copy of Aqualung.

So, you know, sometimes but not always and all that.

Well, I'm glad you shared that because, truthfully, who wants to think that one of their music loves from Teendom might actually be a jerk?

I'm going to revise the story in my head now. The little injured kid must have said something d**kish before I was close enough to hear!

'Lil Brat. I hate that kid SO much! (That smart mouth of his is probably how he got that broken arm!)

Seems like she's going to do small releases for a while leading up to an album. She put out that "Radioactive" 7-track EP. It's all different versions of the same song, though. I think I remember seeing that she was aiming for a full album next year sometime.


I remember you posting a link to the video a while back. I look forward to her next album.

Marina has already promised to hand-deliver a signed copy of it. With a lock of her hair in the jewel case as a memento.

Well, she's going to give me a bouquet of restraining orders, so who's the bigger fan, really?

Stone Darling - "Love Song" (The Cure cover)

Yay, they finally sent one of the cover songs they owe me. I'm waiting on one more. I can't wait to get their first EP, too. Should be soon!

Florence + the Machine - Ceremonials

Decent so far, but I'm tired and need to sleep. I think I'm getting sick.

Last night we listened to my Feist station on Pandora Radio. There were the usual suspects - Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor, Florence + the Machine.

In addition, there were some new tracks that I appreciated. I had never heard of The xx, but I really liked their song "Islands".
