Sarah Jaffe

This is a video of my friend (and foe....just kidding) Sarah Jaffe when we played at the Granada back in April of this year.

Here's another video of us playing at The Chat Room in Fort Worth (more like the smoke room, but who's coughing?) Note the guy who buys his own "cigs" to contribute to the smog about halfway or so through the video:

Here's the same song, better video, but maybe worse sound? You tell me:

Here's another video of her playing at Dan's Silverleaf in Denton.

Isn't she great? You all should like her, mmmkay?

Once upon a time... from Capucha on Vimeo.

So, I guess it's clear that when Kevin and I have wee ones, one will have to be a girl, and she will have to be an imaginative French girl at that. And her name will have to be Capucine.

Just so you know.

runnin' from the law...

I was walking to my car yesterday morning to go to work, like I do every week day, when what to my wondering eyes should appear? This citation from the city of Dallas, nestled into my driver's side window:

Is it wrong that I'm strangely attracted to the Mayor? Is it!?

p.s. Please note the insane cuteness of the Texas with the star where Dallas is. Please, please please note it.

monifa, good grief-a!

I saw this story on the news today and it was CRAZY because just this past weekend Kevin and I were talking about pygmy animals! This is Monifa, a rare pygmy hippo found in Australia and she might just be the cutest creature I've ever seen!

Here's a picture of said cuteness:

and another:

And this is an article about the sweet hip.

Someone mentioned that she looks like a hairless shar pei puppy, but I prefer to think of her as a tiny land manatee with legs. Even the term "land manatee" made me giggle at work just now. It's Friday and the day is almost over and I can't concentrate at work because all I can think about are Monifa hugs!

Donald Miller and Voting, et al...

This kind of sums up how I've been feeling this year personally regarding the election. I know that doesn't make me super popular with some peeps who read this blog, but it's how I feel.

And this is how I feel about how we should behave no matter who is elected into the presidency.

I pray that God will bless this nation through whoever is elected president and I will be praying just that for the next 4 years until the next election, and will continue doing so for each consecutive president.

Let it also be said that I do respect differing political opinions. :) I'm not against anyone who feels differently from me. I've read, researched, thought and prayed and I feel at peace with my decision. If I've made a mistake, then I'll realize when the time comes, but I'm not sure at this point that I have.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
-Abraham Lincoln

Happy Voting!
