i am back! it feels like it's been forever, but i am home! i have had a sweet cuddle-fest with my dog and my husband and am now having to get back into the major swing of things. lots of busy times ahead as we enter into the holiday season of course. and i will be posting holiday stuff today for all of you who could hold out for the goods! in the meantime i will keep listening to the latest kings of convenience record and plugging away at getting orders shipped and work done!

we saw a lot of rainbows on our long drive from leipzig germany to prague.



so we played in a sleepy old town called metz in france. we didn't think much of it until we got back to the bar to play our show and the promoter of the show -flo- had some friends make a stage backdrop for our performance. and it was the bomb. there were flying eyeballs, a crazy alien eyeball man that somehow was actually a light, a door to a labrynth of eyes, mystical leaves and branches & twinkling lights. needless to say we felt right at home. and we tried to figure out a way to cram the alien eyeman into our luggage, but alas he lives in metz still (we did take a few eyeballs though to guide us thru the alps) we were told by flo that metz was one of the first cities to have an official satanic church. as soon as we got there i felt the weirdness and i told matteah. once we found out some of the folklore matteah looked at me and said you knew it!



something exciting i have been holding out on telling anyone...i have some holiday cards sets for sell at urban outfitters! they are available only thru the website and the quantity is limited!

so, we have arrived in paris. it has been raining most of the time we have been here, but that seemed to be my impression of paris before i got here. a little grey and full of ghosts. we play a show tomorrow and i am anxious to play even though it has been nice to have a few days off in paris. we have been staying with my favorite frenchman jerome. he has been the best host feeding us like every two hours and taking us around to see the sites. we came to paris from nantes which is the home of jules verne and simone de beauvoir. we played at the espace de simone de beauvoir. it was pretty intense and there were pictures of her all around where we played. the crowd was full and attentive and the staff there was so nice. i am admittedly horrible about remember the fact that i have a camera in my bag at all times right now, but i swear i will get better.
