I saw She & Him last night and they were very good. The encore is what made the show, though. I can’t really remember what they played. One Buddy Holly cover from that Buddy Holly covers album. Rave On.
M Ward is the coolest dude. Somebody shouted between songs “How do you pronounce your name!?” at Zooey Deschenal. Now I’ve heard it straight from the source.
There was no photography at the show which I quite liked. I was seated and the lit-up phones would have been distracting. The opening act was a group called Secret Sisters who were very country and quite good. I was able to identifies each chord progression in their songs as they were playing, so that’s a new thing for me.
A very fun night. My little sister was with me.
All the girls at the show wore sundresses and tights. My friend Eli leaned over and asked me what I thought it would be like to look out at a crowd and see everyone looking just like you.

Don’t think you won because you wrote many words.
What a “Jesus vs Religion” protestant actually just said to me on Facebook.
And that was pretty much the extent of his rebuttal to my ‘many words.’
Favorite part is the idea of winning. I’m using this from now on.
Coconino National Forest
It might not be a state known for its trees, but Arizona might surprise you — 15% of its land is designated as national forest, and Coconino is at the very heart of it all. With 1.85-million acres that span from Flagstaff to Sedona, the forest is a playground with something for everybody, from mountains and mesas to tree-lined lakes and red rock canyons.
