Stuck in my head:
Why am I awake at 2 drawing comics? My muscles go all dead and hard to control around this time, and yet I can still draw. Marvelous!
Everyone should go see Alessi. I am surprised at how many people listened to/went to see Wildbirds & Peacedrums based on my ranting and raving about them, so maybe I should rave about Alessi for a while. Sincerely, she is really wonderful and I’m sure anyone would love her live. Even my friend Adam, who is usually not all that into lone acoustic singer songwriter types, was charmed by her. She’s got beautiful songs and a lovely voice and her shows are so sweet, and I can’t say enough good things about her. Listen listen listen!
Another musician everyone should love is Jeffrey Lewis. Don’t Be Upset is my favourite. Specifically, this performance of it:
…and another musician everyone should love is Leah Hayes and her band Scary Mansion. EEEE! Only 4 more sleeps ’til I can see her play live. I am excited.
All 3 of these musicians also do drawings. Alessi has a blog here. I love love love Leah’s drawings. She has a blog here. She likes to draw zombies and sad people. Jeffrey Lewis is my comic book hero. I saw him play in 2007 and bought his comic and it got me drawing comics. Yep. Such a hugely talented person and also so kind and encouraging. Buy his comics! All 7 for just $20! What a bargain. His travels across Europe are particularly interesting.
Wow, lots of cool videos and links in this post, if I do say so myself…
