yesterday was a very good day.

look what i got!

a book of leonard cohen’s poetry! paige took me to half-price books, and true to form, i couldn’t resist buying something even though i bought eleven books from another hpb earlier in the day. it was six dollars, which is more than i would ever allow myself to spend at hpb, but it was leonard, so i had to.

new jenny lewis album! i love her so much that i actually bought it… it’s the first cd i’ve paid for in over a year. and it was well worth it: she duets with elvis costello on “carpetbaggers” and with chris robinson on “the next messiah,” and zooey deschanel sings backup on a handful of songs. and of course jenny is amazing. it’s a departure from ‘rabbit fur coat’… it’s obviously sans the watson twins, but it’s also a little grittier alt-country in parts, with a few beautiful heart-wrenching ballad-esque songs weaved in. basically, i dig it.
