Tales of Brave Ida

March 5, 2003

sometimes, i get so caught up in discovering new favorites that i forget old ones.

yesterday, i went to amoeba for the first time in weeks. it's always a feat if i get out of there with two or less CDs in my hand but last night i found myself unable to remember even one band to check out. (amazing!)

just when i was about to give up hope, i remembered that i still had to complete my collection of all things ida, one of my favorite bands. i picked up tales of brave ida and listened to it, along with the other CDs and some live tracks on mp3 i snagged, all night long. and i'm still listening.

an ida bonus: artist ida pearle, no direct relation to the band (although she has played violin with them on occasion), is also amazing. i want to live on the paper moon.

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
