Music Monday- Iron and Wine

Since I had such a good time at the show last night I thought I would share and Iron and Wine song: Flightless Bird, American Mouth. This song also happens to be on the Twilight soundtrack...Some other good ones by him include Boy With a Coin and his cover of the Postal Services Such Great Heights.

Enjoy!

suddenly the interweb is flooded with everything 'twilight'. i had never heard of the movie nor the books. is it something i should read?

Sarah said...

Yes, I think you should read the books. Be warned it is a sappy high school love story involving vampires...

esther said...

hm - i'm not too keen on vampires (long story - not that i actually met one or anything), but what girl doesn't have a soft spot for sappy high school love stories? well, i guess i'll have to otherwise i won't know what everyone is talking about and that happens often enough as it is :). thanks for setting my expectations though!

i picked up the first book at the library yesterday and finished it yesterday evening.

it's a good thing i read it in english because that is deviating for me and this book was absolutely ordinary and cliché in structure and language (i studied dutch literature and can't help but analyze while i read). after the first 'i love you'-s were exchanged i also got very annoyed with the exaggerating teenage line of thought.

yet i could not put it down! and i absolutely need to know how the story continues! and not next week, preferably this weekend. i'm 35 years old and warped back to my 16 year old mind.

i blame you, sarah. you did this :)

The book did exactly what it was supposed to do. Including you, I have now encouraged 5 friends to read the books and they have all enjoyed them ;) They are not literary masterpieces, but they are a pretty easy read. Oh, and they take place in Washington State.

I need to send you an e-mail! I was just lamenting to my mom how much I missed you. Look for it in your in box this week!

oh - the fact that it takes place in washington state sure is a big plus.
i asked sinterklaas for the next book of the series.... darnit.
i'll be on the lookout for your e-mail. i always enjoy them :)
