Songs for snow days

So, we’re having a “snow day” in Austin. I know some friends are always like “seriously?” when the city shuts down for half an inch of fast-melting snow, but I also like a three-day weekend. A friend’s coming in from Los Angeles, I have some Deadwood to watch, Karaoke Underground returns from a Midwest tour, and apparently Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner. In honor of all this, some clips to accompany your cocoa. Throw on your favorite sweater, rip a copy of the Cocteau Twins’ Victorialand, and enjoy. Feel free to include suggestions in the comments section.

    Mia Doi Todd — love her. So terribly under-appreciated.

    Austin is having a snow day? St. Louis is having a snow… month. I think we still have snow left over from Christmas. And my city’s just as ill-equipped to deal with it, despite being part of the Midwest.

    Love Mia Doi Todd.

    After about an hour outside shoveling/snow-blowing the front walk and the four-foot snow mountain that the street plows left at the end of our driveway earlier this week, I found myself singing Regina Spektor’s Blue… “blue lips! Blue veins! The color of our planet from far, far away…”

      Good call with Regina, ma’am! Also, I’m sure the “snow” we got is cute compared to the winter Madison has had. 🙂
