After a slew of frequent updates all in a row, I was planning on taking another (much shorter) break from the blog for the holiday season to spend time with my new family and prepare for the festivities. Ah, but the best laid plans of mice and men…
Popular talk show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, of all things, was the thing to bring me back. More specifically, last night’s closing performance by Iron and Wine, Calexico, Glen Hansard, and HaterHigh.com perpetual favourite, the lovely Kathleen Edwards.
Knowing many of my readers as as big of fans of Ms. Edwards as I am, I didn’t hesitate to make a high quality audio rip available to ya’ll. Sure, I’m sure you can find streaming video on NBC.com (or maybe not, if you’re in Canada. You have to love region restrictions!) or YouTube — but sometimes, it’s just nice to have a great song ready at hand on your computer, iPod, cellphone, or compact disc without having to struggle through the hassles of the stream.
This here is for those people. Happy holidays.
