Lou Reed died yesterday at age 71. I always hate to hear of musical legends moving on, but that's how it goes. In honor of Lou, who I was raised listening to, a little Sweet Jane for our Monday. Enjoy!
I first heard this song when I saw Lennon & Maisy's (of Nashville fame) cover on YouTube and I just fell in love - something about the melodies and harmonies! Here's the original, but i just LOVE their version:
And then! I just found this new version by Lucy Wainwright Roche (who is the sister of one of my most favorite singers ever, and also the daughter of another two...but that's another story), which is yet another excellent cover, but done in such a mournful, beautiful way:
SO, let's just put it right out there. My husband Tj is finally persuing his dream of acting in a major way - he has just been signed to a talent agency!! We're hoping this gets him lots of auditions for both big projects and small. Fingers crossed!! So go ahead and LIKE his Facebook page already!
He already has a few cool things under his belt, including this music video from Brevard-natives The Steep Canyon Rangers!
What about hug them, or gaze longingly into their eyes? Check out the amazing photo project below (bonus points for spotting the 2 Ashevillians!!).
Tonight I'm going to my first-ever rap show - Watsky at The Orange Peel. I'm so excited - this was one of those shows I bought tickets for the hour they went on sale. Locked it in!! You may have seen Watsky around the YouTubes, but he also has a couple albums out. These are a couple of my favorite songs, including the one below. Maybe see you there tonight?
Although...I do celebrate every day. HA! #nerdalert
