-I have  never been to Seattle. I spent a week in Vancouver once before a cruise but that’s about the extent of my Pacific Northwest travels. As i do with most things, i happened to stumble over this song this morning. It’s cute, it’s short, it’s to the point. Give it a listen

–Suresh Joachim has broken his own Guinness world record for nonstop broadcast-television watching, clocking 72 hours in the Swedish capital.

“I feel fine, I drank between 25 and 30 cups of coffee,” Joachim said Sunday.

His previous record was 69 hours, 48 minutes, set in 2005.

Joachim, a Sri Lanka native who lives in Toronto, watched three seasons of the drama series “24” featuring Kiefer Sutherland, said Swedish TV4 spokeswoman Janina Witkowski.

—And to bring the whole world back to a decent level of sadness.. Here’s a song that has been featured at least twice here that just seems to keep coming back up. Perhaps we’re pushing this one  a bit too hard.. There’s just a definite soft spot for bearded, flannel-wearing, singer-songwriters.. 

 

A Last Note: Monday night is the Pains Of Being Pure at Heart show @ The Cat. You should go.
