One of the perks of being married to my husband is that he occasionally brings home free CDs from the record companies. Last week/this week was a banner week, with the Echo and the Bunnymen greatest hits compilation, new Band of Horses (that one was more for him ) new Dierks Bentley bluegrass (Hey, I am versatile) and an interesting debut by…Karen Elson. Yes, her.
I am not a big “model” fan, but I love me some Karen Elson. Wife of Jack White. Owner of this AWESOME vintage clothing boutique in Nashville. If we ever go back, I’m heading into Venus and Mars faster than you can play me that McCartney song on my old 8 track.
And now, you can listen to The Ghost Who Walks. I’ve been listening all day. A little bit of PJ Harvey, a little Americana, very atmospheric and well produced. Why, I haven’t enjoyed a model’s album this much since Milla Jovovich’s The Divine Comedy, and yes I do have that and flove it.
In other news, I finished this the other day, and will probably make more to sell this fall, with revisions so it’s not a direct copy — I plan to make it an infinity scarf. Other than that, I’m in a bit of a knitting funk and don’t know what the weekend will bring.
Thanks for reading, and for all your comments. I’ll start responding in the comments again, FYI. Because I care!
