I've been desperate to digitally convert my Evergreen Seven Songs LP forever, but am technologically stunted.
Seven Songs is one of my most prized records.
Swoon blog has MP3's of the LP and here's a fan myspace site I just discovered
Listen especially to "Eric and the Digger Blue", which was one of my teen anthems.

Belle, pack up your toys... America has spoken
We sent our Senior New York Meow House Correspondent to file a report live from Madison Ave.
"I talked to this guy who worked there for a long time and he said Jo was winning on the internet. He was like "On the net Jo's ahead but here she doesnt do anything so we're all like "why?"'"
Overheard while watching the cats:
girl 1: what is that? meow mix cat house? huh?
girl 2: ughhhhhh! I hate cats.

Oh Little Lion (an understatement)
I've been reading about Caetano Veloso lately, mostly because of Cibelle recetly covering his song "London, London". Besides the entirety of Domingo the record he made with Gal Costa, the song "O Leaozinho" is my essential Veloso, one of the prettiest songs ever written.

"I'm from South Jersey, so I don't take any crap from a cat."
Here's an update
"A state judge spared the life of alleged neighbor-assaulter Lewis the cat on Tuesday, but ordered that he remain inside his owner's Fairfield home at all times.
The Best Friends Animal Society of Kanab, Utah, had also offered to take Lewis free of charge. The cat sanctuary can accommodate about 600 cats in climate-controlled bungalows and has specialists who know how to handle cats with behavior problems. Lewis would be no threat to the public in Utah because the sanctuary's closest neighbor is Denny's Wigwam, a curio shop about four miles away.
The owner of the shop, Victor Sandonato, said he has already been warned that Lewis might be moving to his neighborhood. "I live with a cat just like Lewis, and I live with danger every time I go home at night," he said, adding, "I'm from South Jersey, so I don't take any crap from a cat.""

Cat 1, Bear 0 In New Jersey
Jack, a 15-pound orange-and-white cat, keeps a close vigil on his property, chasing small animals when he can, but his owners and neighbors say his latest escapade was surprising.
"We used to joke, 'Jack's on duty,' never knowing he'd go after a bear," cat owner Donna Dickey told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Friday's newspapers.
Neighbor Suzanne Giovanetti first spotted Jack's accomplishment after her husband saw a bear climb a tree on the edge of their northern New Jersey home's back yard on Sunday. Giovanetti thought Jack was simply looking up at the bear, but soon realized the much larger animal was afraid of the hissing cat.
After about 15 minutes peering down at the cat from the tree, the bear descended and tried to run away, only to have Jack chase it up another tree.
At this point Dickey, who feared for her cat, called Jack back home and the bear scurried back to the woods.
"He doesn't want anybody in his yard," Dickey said.

This time I'm a diamond
Today, I've been listening over and over to these two new songs from The Great Lakes.
Great Lakes - Diamond Times
Great Lakes - Farther
"Diamond Times" is the best use of a sax since the Dodgers in 82 .
Their new record will be out in the States this Sept on Empyrean Records and a few months earlier (July) in Europe on Track and Field
I'm looking forward to jamming it.
The Angels of Los Angeles play against The Devil Rays of Tampa Bay, someone in baseball has a sense of humor.

Heathcliff and Tang
"Small familiarities like that can make a big difference to a confused and distraught pet, said Louisa DeRosa, Sido's animal grief counselor. "Heathcliff here was so depressed when we got him," she said of a Sido cat currently up for adoption. "He'd put his face up against the wall and just stare at it." The Maine coon cat refused to eat, became anorexic and had to be hospitalized; his lifelong friend Tang, a Siamese mix, paced and cried, worrying about Heathcliff on top of dealing with the same loss, said DeRosa. Once she used the Sido tip sheets to ease their pain, the two cats, who can only be adopted together, needed only a few weeks to adjust to their new lives. It would have taken much longer without that information, DeRosa said."

Is that a bible in your back pocket or are you happy to see me?
Mr. Kibbles has a big middle toe for you Christopher Cortes
Police said Cortes was upset the cat used the back of his new pickup truck as a litter box.
Cortes, a firefighter, and his wife had pleaded no contest to petty theft and declined comment after the hearing.
"That's what they get for taking an innocent cat," said the cat's owner, 12-year-old Maggie Leonard.
Leonard said Mr. Kibbles made his way back to his home two weeks later. She said she's disappointed in the couple, who were close friends of the family, adding that firefighters should be saving cats from trees, not stealing them.
Music and Movement and Beat and Happening
Their song "I Saw You" is one of the best singles I've heard all year.
Music and Movement - I Saw You
Music and Movement - Body Bags
Here's some Beat Happening from my favorite record of theirs You Turn Me On
