Two songs and a movie

The heater seems to not want to work in the house, so I'm staying warm with music and mindless internet surfing to keep my fingers warm.

Per Huevos 4KS recommendation awhile back, I bought a Blitzen Trapper record. I liked it and got their most recent record a couple of months ago. The title track "Furr" is awesome. Any song about a half wolf half man is a good song in my book. The rest of the album is good too --a little more focused than their last one. Another folk song to download from iTunes if you're bored with your 70s collection is Fleet Foxes's "White Winter Hymnal." The vocal harmonies are really cool. The rest of the album may get a little too close to Crosby, Stills and Nash reincarnated, but this song has an energy to it that sticks.

I liked "The Visitor." Richard Jenkins, the dad from Six Feet Under, is in it. It's nice to watch a movie where everyone just acts decent, even in some awkward and sometimes emotional situations.

right on with both music picks. the "furr" title track was my jam of the fall.

here's a youtube of them performing it on conan:

so when i was looking at that, one of the related videos that popped up was that of a law school classmate of ours singing the same tune! this one is for the big cat:
