New Buffalo

I was in the front row. It was nice. She mostly did new songs but a couple of older ones, She did "Yes", which she described as being about sex, and this one: Sally played piano mostly with a couple of songs on a classical guitar, She was accompanied by Jessica who played percussion, a little keyboard, cello and backing vocals. She seemed a little nervous but that's kind of her style. The crowd gave her a pretty good response I think. The new songs went pretty well. "I'm the drunk and you're the star" was very memorable as was "You've gone my friend". "Cheer Me Up Thank You" is my new favourite. There were some sampled vocals (the ah ah ahh part) but Jessica sang the bom bom bom part and it was super sweet. I didn't record that sadly but here is the video:

bloxorz

It's a very cool flash puzzle game. bloxorz.

Arf, arf, do the doggy bounce

Heh heh. A great episode. Better than last couple of episodes. Sadly it was the season finale ... :( so no more Flight of the Chonchords for a while.

can the world get enough of 1234?

First it was my blog ;), then ebay. Now it's the new ipod nano. What next? Coke? I am picturing monster royalty cheques coming the way of Sally Seltman, who by the way I have tickets to see on Wednesday. She's supporting Paul Kelly. And, next Friday, Milly & I are seeing comedian and Flight of the Conchords star, Arj Barker in Thuringowa!. I am happy as a clam in chowder.
