So I met with the second vocalist to answer the Craigslist ad for And Tears Fell today. She borrowed my Ovation acoustic and played some originals, gave me a demo CD. Great voice, great songs, and adorable. One of the covers is the 1971 John Prine song "Angel from Montgomery". Not having had a lot of exposure to the wide spectrum of country music, I'd never heard the song before.

So imagine my surprise when we put in Into the Wild tonight, and in the middle of the film, Kristen Stewart and Emile Hirsch perform a duet of "Angel from Montgomery".

Slightly bizarre. But it certainly wouldn't be the first time I'd received a message through music. Unfortunately, I don't really know what the message is, except maybe "pay attention - there will be a quiz later."

I finished the layout on the RADZ book today. Sending it off to our editor, Jason. As soon as we have the index done, it's outta here! Huzzah!

Beautiful. Such an eloquent, beautiful, beautiful song. So glad it was introduced to you!

I haven't seen the movie yet (gasp!) so don't spoil it for me :)
