lately, i'm really digging...

... the new "beirut" album. i bought it 5 or 6 days ago and have listened to nothing else since (thats a lie, i have also listened to some elliott smith, and some lectures i downloaded online). if you're not familiar with this band, just think the most magically tragic eastern european folk music played by some kid originally from new mexico - with full band: strings, uke, accordion, horns, etc etc. i love it. go here

other things that have been making me smile include:

the darjeeling limited
u2: zoo tv: live from sydney
cappuccinos from diedrichs
what the font? (when it works)
the office
this pair of jeans i found in my closet that i forgot i had
the work of saul bass
the morning air

i bought it on saturday, and am really enjoying it.

the first song that comes to mind when i think about the album this moment is la banlieue. i like that one. and all of them.
