The past two days have been filled with musical nostalgia for me. First Diamond Mine and the year 1998. Today was Barstool Prophets which brought me to college. Later this evening was Little Earthquakes, and that took me right back to standing on stage singing Silent all these Years in front of 450 people in my high school – singing something that was finally not disney, and doing it in front of all those people who didn’t much like me. It was the first time I felt strong in my entire memory. It was good.

Thinking about that made me realize just how much I miss performing. It’s been forever. No one asks me to sing for them anymore.

      Heh. Diamond Mine is an album by Blue Rodeo (who you’ve already proclaimed to know of and not like) and Little Earthquakes is an album by Tori Amos. Silent All These Years is one of the songs on Little Earthquakes.

      I’d be happy to sing for you sometime.

        how about today during one of the really long honourary oscar awardings?
