more post-concert ramblings

As I write this I'm listening to last night's Belle and Sebastian and New Pornographers concert from NPR. Join me in my listening. Can't wait till I can download it to my mp3 player (not an Ipod, mind you).
I think I've been doing a great job ignoring the Oscars. Contrary to the Post, Capote did not take it all. Also contrary to the Post...according to most people I've talked to Jon Stewart didn't suck.

Some other blogger responses to the Belle and Sebastian / New Pornographers concert(s)...

Don't Worry about the Government has photos...and promises a review
The Ghost of Gordon Sumner

Blog Vivant (who notes that Kathryn Calder is Carl Newman's niece, something I did not know)

Apparently last night (Monday) they played both the songs me and my friend wanted to hear most...URG. They were: Piazza, New York Catcher for me and She Wants Me (NPR doesn't have that on their set list, but apparently they played it?) for him. Too bad.
In the interview with NPR, Stuart mentioned the Moody Blues as a inspiration for Belle and Sebastian, which cracks me up, because my dad always swears Belle and Sebastian sound like the Moody Blues. Also, he (Stuart) called our night "hip." What? Is that an insult?
Meanwhile, DC Blogs linked to me (and not just on the sidebar), which is very nice of them. Though they quoted what was clearly the most ditzy part of my post. Thanks anyhow.
