* with Adventure

does youtube know me better than i know myself?

youtube just recommended 2 videos with corgis in them for me.
i don't like corgis.
i've never watched a video with a corgi in it.
ok, i'll watch.
and bam, now i like corgis and now i want a corgi.



i parked beside this car today.
i was talking on my phone b4 i went in the store but i kept looking over at this wolf and getting so scared.
i had to get off the phone and go inside, pronto.


"grave slot"

last night i went out for a burrito.
when i checked my phone later, i had several missed calls from a number i didn't recognize-
and 3 voicemails.
they are so bizarre that i had to share-
i took out some of the names cos i feel (sorta) bad putting someone's personal junk on a blog.

1st first voicemail:
(***in a very, very southern, raspy young woman's voice)
"Jeremy, i want you to call me.
this is Sxx.
ain't nobody takin your mama's grave slot.
i don't know how this whole story got started up.....
but i'd like to talk to ya.


2nd voicemail:

3rd voicemail:
"alexis stop runnin!
i would like for you to please give me a call.
i don't know how this mess got started.
no one said they were gonna take that grave slot.
i just asked.
Txxxx had already had a spot when i got-
no one in my family told me to call and ask about that grave slot.
i did that out of my own will.
so if you're mad at anyone please get mad at me.
not the rest of my family.


and this morning i had another voicemail:
uh. please call me. this is Sxx.
i just wanted to clear up the record.
uh, i don't know what all Lxxxx said.
what all Lxxxx told. i don't know.
there's nobody down here runnin your family down- that i've been heard of.
and nobody's takin your mama's grave.
or just ask your mama call me and i'll assure you- your mom... nobody's takin her grave.
nobody was takin her grave to start with.
cos Txxxx had already found a spot when i was just askin
nobody told me-
my brother, my dad
nobody told me to call and ask y'all.
that was all my own doing.
so don't get mad at my family. was me, jeremy.

and i'll talk to you later, bye"



i've been looking through old myspace messages trying to find something specific... & in doing so i came across this message we sent future islands back before knew them. ear pwr had only been playing shows for about a month at the time... and we didn't know shit.

Hello Future Islands!

We are EAR PWR(former Hide And Seek) from Winston Salem/Asheville.
I think we saw art lord every time you came to the werehouse and I saw future islands here in asheville a while back. you guys sure put on an amazing show.

Anyways, the reason i am writing this message is to ask you if you wanted to play a show with us and the ZOM ZOMS (Austin TX) in Greensboro on October the 26th. We need another band to play and you would be perfect.
We also have a dj that is going to be spinning all night long.
pretty neat huh?
And the next night, we will be playing with the zom zoms again in your home town at the spazzatorium.
so yes.
That is all i have to say.
What do you think?
we love you guys so much



can't take it
