iron eyes.

One bottle down! Time to play a show. Hey everyone, I'm writing to you from my bunk, inside a bus, on a street in Kentucky, in North America, on planet Earth. And if you think of it that way, it makes me feel much smaller, and I like it that way right now. This morning I woke up and listened to Prince and the Revolution, and now I'm listening to Tom Petty. It's all very good, and as inspiring as that can be, it can be just as discouraging..I mean, can Mae really be as good as Tom Petty or Prince? Ha! You decide, I can't participate, the rules prohibit it. Lately I've been reading (trying to read) The Myth of Sisyphus. I love it so far, it's an essay on the subject of suicide from an absurdists prospective. I recommend it. Anyway...last night we played our first headline show in a while, thanks for coming out. We had a good time, and we were introduced to our new and old friends in The New Atlantic and The Hush for this next week, we'll be hanging out with them. Here is a excerpt from the book I'm reading.

"In man's attachment to life, there is something stronger than all the ills in the world. The body's judgement is as good as the mind's, and the body shrinks from annihilation. We get into the habit of living before acquire the habit of thinking."

"The typical act of eluding, the fatal evasion that constitutes the third theme of this essay, is hope. Hope of another life one must 'deserve', or trickery of those who life not for life itself but for some great idea that will transcend it, refine it, give it a meaning and betray it"

hmmm.. sounds interesting. It's not your usual topic for a book.

In regards to the new/old friends, The Hush Sound is a favorite of a friend of mine. I haven't seen them before, but think I'd like their music. I enjoyed the New Atlantic when they were here, even if they had to stick to acoustic because he "broke his guitar." LOL

I've never been a huge fan of Prince, but I am of Mae, so I think I'm a little biased. I did like Little Red Corvette, though, because my husband has a Red Corvette, but then I read the lyrics and it scared me a little. LOL ;)

Hope you enjoyed your stay in Kentucky.

Enjoyed the show last night in KY. As always you guys make a concert worth attending.

As per your question, I think even a "fan" of Mae or of any other band is potentially prohibited. We are all in one way or another too close to really be unbiased in our choosing.

My personal thought is this, I would rather see Mae 4 times a year than ever see Prince or Tom Petty once in my lifetime.

There are just a few bands that I hope to ever catch live: Muse, Snow Patrol, U2, Sigur Ros, Death Cab and Mae.

Yes, you guys rank up there. But I'm biased.

Thanks for playing Tisbury Lane.

I have to say, from the moment I first heard Suspension I wanted to see you live. I'm a bit of a new fan but I can't help but love what you guys have put out. The only song of Prince's that I like is Lolita... but really... I'm terribly biased because of the generation I'm growing up in but either way- I do think you can be an amazing band that can have one Hell of an affect on all of us and generations to come.
I definitely believe that you guys are completely true to what you write and sing and play and I don't think any of you would have it any other way so just keep doing what you're doing.

Dude, very deep. I love reading your blog because it's just so... real. That must sound kinda odd, but so many other people try to make it sound as if they have everything figured out, or as if there is no such thing as figured out, but your blogs are real. You don't profess to know some great secret, and yet you do seem to believe that there is an answer, it just isn't one that you/we can't identify right yet.

I don't know if you've read it or not, to be honest I haven't, but I've heard AMAZING things about Donald Miller's "Blue Like Jazz." My copy is in the mail right now. Heck, if you want I'll just give you my copy when I see you guys in Rochester. Just let me know. Benji knows how to get in contact with me.
