White Guys With Soul

I have to listen to Bon Iver's new album "For Emma, Forever Ago" at least twice a day. I'm addicted to this man's falsetto. You can be too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62i9Sodwp5o This video features an even more stripped down version of the first song, "Flume". Listen to it, but also listen to the entire record.

Another record I'm compulsively listening to is Radiohead's "In Rainbows". Here are two songs from it, "Reckoner" and "House of Cards":

Dear Miss Khan.
First I woul like to apologyze for my mistakes in this post.
I´m from Spain, and I don´t have a good english level.
I just to congratulate you for your novel The Geometry of God.
I had read the spanish translation, and I enjoy a lot.
It´s a wonderfull story, sometimes funny, sometimes sad... like life, I think.
Thaks you so much.
I´m looking for an oportunity to make a travel for India, and your country (I´m specially likes to visit the ruins of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro,near river Indo), and learn more about the history and way of life... May be one day.
Sincerely yours.

Hello,

What a pleasure to know you read the book in Spanish! I had wondered how all the puns and homonyms would translate, but I'm glad you found it funny.

I hope you have a terrific time in Pakistan.

Cheers, and thanks for writing.
