take away concerts

hey everyone, check out for really cool video of impromptu concerts all over paris. there's the shins in montmartre, sufjan stevens covering the innocence mission's "lakes of canada", and lots of other favs: arcade fire, andrew bird, of montreal, islands, jens lekman, i'm from barcelona, the spinto band, loney, dear, architecture in helsinki, and lots of others. i love the spontaneous nature of these videos, the scenes of paris and parisians enjoying or disdaining the music, and most of all, the joy that these people have in making music. and what good music! check it out on youtube or la blogotheque website, but just a warning, the website is all in french!

after a very long time

so, after a long time without blogging, i saw a friend's new blog. it was pretty amazing, and so traveltwin and i got together and decided to start posting again. rather, we didn't get together so much as skyped each other, we do live on different continents.
anyway, we did just barely get to spend almost a month together, when tt. graced the states with her presence once again. you'll have to wait from a post from her to see how life in oz is going, but here's how my life in the middle of the u.s. is:

two kids are a challenge and a blessing! having been a mother for four years and a mother of two for seven months, i can tell you that two (to me at least) is better than one. i like having them both around, to interract with each other and see them love each other (most of the time.)

besides the kids there's been home improvements (which i am little or no help on, sorry hubby,) like new sod, a handbuilt (by hubby) swingset, and other stuff in progress.

lately i'm addicted to esty and i even bought myself a new ring to wear as a wedding band from a seller there! (my old one hasn't fit for a while--two kids later my fingers are no longer size 5!) i'm always up for new good music, and the list on the left is what i'm chilling to lately. i'm reading lots, trying to start doing my kundalini yoga daily again, not as interested in t.v. as i used to be, and that's about it.
maybe later i'll post something interesting, but for now, this'll have to do ya!
