Into The Sun

Sometimes there are no words.
Other times, you can listen to Julia Nunes.

Tell me this, why do you run away?
Just when I decided to say something true for once.
You should try it and see what you mean.
Cause I can't read the lines let alone in between.

I'm waking up to see the sun.
It's a light that lets me know a new day's begun.
I can leave behind the tears of my unconscious mind,
To the sunshine.

And I know my mellow tones can be misleading.
But I've just put my anger to good use.
You see I've given up on begging and pleading.
Every scratch on this guitar is because of you.

 -- Into The Sunshine by Julia Nunes

Buy her album "Settle Down" now. Right now. You'll thank me for the rest of your life.

Last night at El Corazon I got to see Hellogoodbye, a band I've missed for a while. Two great Seattle bands (Man Without Wax and Mansions) opened as well as William Beckett. Not a big crowd, probably because it was Block Party weekend, but that's perfect for me!

I've been paying some attention to this show Continuum for a little
while now. It has excellent production values (thank you Canada) and
the cinematography is too-notch. The individual episodes are a little
trite, but the character development, the story arch, and commentary
it provides are very, very good.

Plus the lead is pretty hot and believable as a badass. The tech they
showcase is usually pretty slick even if they have to bend the rules
from time to time for plot points, the basics are solid.

This is a show my dad would love if he could get Canadian television.
