I like giants. Especially girl giants.

So I did live blogging this weekend from the Capitol Hill Block Party. How tech savvy am I? Basically, this is how it went down. A band would hit the stage, I'd take a picture with my teeny camera (not to be confused with tiny house). When they were done, I'd sit on the concrete, open up the laptop, download and size the photo, upload it to the web and write my little post all within the 20 minute period before the next band started. I love working in toght deadlines like that.

Anywho, the highlight of the day was definately getting to see Miss Kimya Dawson... front row (read my blog post here) She was so cute and nervous and grrreat. Unfortunately I was the only one dancing and singing along, so I wish Abby could have been there with me.

Read my posts on the Cave Singers (with Arlo Guthrie and Patti Smith references) here, and read my post about Kay Kay and his Weathered Underground (with a Bix Biederbecke reference) here. I used what small amount of music knowlege I had and applied it the blogs. I don't think anyone realized I'm not tooknowledgeable about music... at least I hope not.

One band I was not fortunate enough to see was PWRFL Power, a one-man acoustic guitar set. If you check out his myspace page, listen to his song "Chopsticks." Heartwarming and funny, and it kind of reminds me of something that would be on a Wes Anderson soundtrack.

Lastly, a superlative, for anyone reading this blog. I read that Kimya Dawson is going on Sesame Street to do a duet with Grover, which has been a lifelong dream of hers.

If you could duet with any Muppet, which would it be?

Though I love Fozzie and I really love Gonzo, my answer would have to be Kermit. he's just too sweet! he's the perfect boyfriend. I wonder what he is on the Enneagram? obviously Miss Piggy's an 8. is Kermit a 5 or a 6?

i guess it'd have to be kermit, since he was my first crush of life. and because its not easy being green. i would know, since i have green eyes (and green lungs).
