a song and a question

Hey Guys, I wanted to share with you a song I heard on Minnesota Public Radio’s live stream. The song came on and before it even finished I was looking it up on Youtube so I could hear it again. So you can check out the link for the video at the bottom of this post.

This brings me to my question. I find that sometimes my impression of a song can be permanently colored by the video. Especially if I really like a music video, I sometimes have a hard time listening a song again without picturing the video and I thus can’t help but to interpret the song through the lens of the video. So what do you guys think? Do you prefer to hear just the song without the video the first time around or do you think the video can help you get into a song the first time you listen to it? Or do you think that I am totally over thinking this and I need to calm down?
Anyway here is the link, I’ll let you decide whether you want to watch the video or just listen.

Awesome City Europe

Emeline and I have been thinking we may try to make a trip over to Europe sometime this January/February. We’re not sure where we’d like to go but we’re cordially inviting any of you to come along. Just thought we’d throw it out there…

Mark for Governor

Mark with your recent election success there’s a buzz surrounding your name and momentum building. You can’t become complacent. Start thinking bigger. The Arizona Governor election is just over a month away and neither candidate is really energizing the bases. This is a perfect opportunity for you to step in. We don’t have much time but I feel like a write in campaign could be very successful. We’ve already got a lot of ideas from your last campaign for how to succeed and lots of willing volunteers. Now is this time. Dropout and get down here. Our current governor has no college degree and has difficulty stringing together more two or three comprehensible sentences. Next to her lawschool dropout sounds very prestigious. Now is the time to act. Mark = Hope
