holiday


I'm headed to Brooklyn tomorrow to spend the holiday weekend in Red Hook with Joe and my in-laws.  Hopefully I'll get some good pictures to share next week.  What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

It's very true that I never show videos here, but I couldn't help posting this as Joe and I have watched it about ten times already.  Pitchfork has been doing these amazing Take Away Shows of bands randomly performing in public, and in this one the Wild Beasts walk the streets of Paris with only a guitar and their insanely beautiful voices.  Watch the passers-by--they have no reaction, so typical for a big city!  Love it.

Oh thanks for the link, listening to it now, it's beautiful... Funny I'm in Paris. Nothing planned for thanksgiving as there isn't anything like this in France, but spending the week-end with parents, uncle + aunt though. I hope you have a great time in Brooklyn!

Love this video!

Have a lovely Thanksgiving in Brooklyn! I'm sure you'll have loads of fun.

We've already had our thanksgiving here in Canada, but I am looking forward to getting ahead in my knitting this weekend.

Safe journey!
