Happyness and Bright Eyes

Someone just gave me their tickets to go see Bright Eyes and Simon Joyner. He's playing a sold-out show tonight at Sokol. I've seen him about five times, but I'm not about to turn down a free concert ticket, especially for a benefit concert for the Bemis Center. I'm seeing The Pursuit of Happyness before catching the concert. I know exactly what I'm getting in to when I'm seeing this movie. That said, I am sort of in need of seeing an inspirational movie about following my dreams. CokeMachineGlow rejected my resume.

I came up with my 'best of' last night and in a haze, I totally forgot about Johnny Cash's American V and Sonic Youth's Rather Ripped, so I absolutely have to send a revised copy out. Can't believe I forgot those two...

Did you like the Bright Eyes show? It was like the 10th time I've seen him, but maybe my least favorite of all of them. I was seriously more engaged in coversation than I was in the show.

I thought it was a pretty good show. It's the sixth time I've seen him. One of my friends who went said it was "life changing" for her - but this was the first time she saw him perform.
