I may have initially resisted Zooey's charms when she joined forces with M. Ward last summer, because I love M. Ward so much I couldn't bear to see him not work on his own music. Thanks to Hold Time, however, and the fact that I'm seeing him on July 30th, I'm less bitter now. But no doubt, she's still a real-life manic pixie dream girl. We'll see if the movie features her as one as well.
She & Him - Sweet Darlin'
So, when I got home and back in front of my computer, I went looking and found Alexi Murdoch's song "Wait," which I could swear is changing my life this very minute. It's the question those of us who are just getting started are wondering to each other, hoping desperately that the answer is "yes."

I’m not sure if "Last Train Home" is about coming together or falling apart, but I’m not sure it matters. I was on a last train of sorts last night, but I felt far from alone.

I Love: that the Black Cat and Wonderland Ballroom have let us know they definitely won't be Real World-friendly.
I Hate: Capitol Hill interns, with their red badges of shame. As a DC native (yes, I've been an intern, but I'm aware of my limitations), I cringe at the idiotic things visitors say and do - but capitol hill interns also believe that they are all-knowing and their bosses are all-powerful, making them so much worse than your run-of-the-mill tourist.
I Love: Spotted: DC Summer Interns, a blog about all the hilariously stupid things DC summer interns say and do. Today's best post is about a presumptuous intern who walked into Starbucks and thought he could get coffee for his whole office without paying.
I Hate: that Phoenix's concert at the Rock & Roll Hotel last night was sold out.
I Love: Phoenix.
I Hate: that the Metro was so seriously delayed today, due to yesterday's tragedy; and that no matter what happens, nothing ever seems to get properly fixed. Anyone remember last summer's accidents? Or when a train derailed?
I Love: that people were generally pretty good-humored about the endless delays. Also, Adrian Fenty.
