Comments from Katie

My first thought hearing this was to compare and contrast with Tove Lo’s “Habits”:

Best Coast:
I stay high all the time
Just to get by
I climb into the sky
And my eyes they cry
California nights
Make me feel so happy
I could die
But I try to stay high

Tove Lo:
You’re gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I’m missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Man, wish I had gone! Couldn’t justify the ticket price, though… First time missing J. Lew in the Seattle area in 9 years…

Wow, awesome. I had never listened to Angel Olsen before “Hi-Five” was released, and now I’m hooked. This song reminds me a lot of Sibylle Baier.

I second Gilmore Girls for both Love and War and Snow, as well as Bracebridge Dinner. Quality.

When my sister and I were little, we watched the crap out of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s “To Grandmother’s House We Go,” because we were convinced that watching it made it snow. (That, as well as eating marshmallows and leaving ice cubes on the front porch.) I wish it still had that power…

I don’t know, I think Kelly already won the caption contest. Her comment is so true…

Actually, they lent their song “Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk” to Amazon for a Kindle commercial last year, too.

I recently saw Neko Case in concert, and she said she liked that her song was going to be in the show. (The episode was even named “I Wish I Was the Moon”!). I mean, she even recorded a version of “She’s Not There” for the season premiere. But, she wrote this about her dad…and they played it during crazy vampire sex.

Wait, wait, wait. Did anyone actually click through to the newsletter? Jose looks quite a lot like Gabe in the last picture… (I don’t know how to embed pictures, sorry!)

Is Lizzie Widdicombe actually Gwyneth Paltrow writing in 3rd person? I didn’t think anyone could name-drop more than her.

There is absolutely ZERO chance that they won’t sing that song. So, RIP…
