Not cool because she’s hip; hip because she’s cool. Get it? She can’t help it. That’s just the way she is. Not cool in the “I’m aloof and don’t talk to anybody” way – in fact, total opposite. Maybe it’s that she’s so friggin’ smart, I dunno…but she’s cool.
So, she leaves me a comment about a friend of hers who has a blog that I should check out. I did, and I loved it.
Aural Pleasures is aptly named – Dori comes up with some great music! (I’m scoring a “Best of 2008 Mix CD”…she may have a few left that she’s giving out. Vampire Weekend, people. Bon Iver. Radiohead. Go check!)
Where was I…? Oh, yeah, so tonight, Big O is watching football and I’ve baked three batches of Biscotti (Almond, Anise and Cinnamon.) While the cookies were in the oven, I’ve been surfing, and decided to randomly click back on some of Dori’s older posts…when I stumbled on THIS.
Verily, Apollo and his muses frolic in mysterious ways. (Assuming I believed in Hellenic Paganism or Mythology. But I don’t – I’ve just told you I’m Catholic – were you not paying attention…?)
I’ve given you a Gogol Bordello threefer to enjoy while you read Dori’s review of their last New Year’s Eve Concert. If, after ALL THIS, you STILL don’t love these guys…well, just don’t tell me. I don’t want to be disappointed in you.
Now, if you didn’t click on all those links, well you’re missing some really good stuff. Seriously. I’m hoping we can get Dori to blog more regularly, because aside from being an absolute ENCYCLOPEDIA of new music knowledge – she’s teh awesome.
