Ken Leung is 42?!

Happy Birthday but wow, can't believe he's 42. And I cannot believe that people born in 1970 are now... 42! (How very Lost of them ;D )

(Also, apparently Geena Davis and Robby Benson were born on the same day. Who knew? And who knew Robby had such awesome hair?)

O.D.ing on Iron & Wine

I put a new-to-me track on my Year of the Dragon mix and now I'm on an Iron & Wine kick. I listened to some stuff I'd DLed a while back but never really heard before. Dead Man's Will just hit me hard. Wow. I'd just got back from a walk where I ran into a friend who just lost his brother, so that made it even more poignant. And then, next up in the playlist: The Trapeze Swinger, which is also a funeral song. Oof! Beautiful stuff but very affecting. I've tended to DL new Iron & Wine songs piecemeal, not devour a whole album at once so I'm always rediscovering him. (He also does a cover of New Order's Love Vigilantes, which is also very melancholy in its own way, especially his version.)

So far this year, I've listened to a lot of Pogues, Billy Bragg and Fleet Foxes. So a little introspection, a lot of beautiful melodies and voices and some anti-establishment fervor.

Best "Occupy" Photos

From Yahoo. Of course my favorites involve pooches:
Welsh Corgi Katie carries a sign as several hundred demonstrators rally in Salem, Ore., Monday, Oct. 10, 2011.

In an Oct. 9, 2011 photo, Diane McEachern sits with her dogs Mr. Snickers, left, Seabiscuit, and Ruffian, right, on the tundra near Bethel, Alaska. McEachern wanted to participate in the Occupy Wall Street protests so she gathered her dogs, bundled up and went out to the tundra with a homemade sign that read "Occupy the Tundra." The photo was posted on the Occupy Wall Street Facebook page and has since been shared thousands of times.
