how adorable is he with his little ukulele?
on tuesday, one of my very favorite bands, blind pilot, came to telluride. crazy! they are a sweet and lovely 6 piece "alternative folk" band. they have fabulous musicianship, amazing lyrics, and are also just really nice people. i made israel (the singer) a pick, with some of his lyrics, "we are only strumming water on this most unlikely chord", on it. he is very shy, and he appeared to be very touched by it. he said it meant a lot to him; it was really cool.
before we went to the show, we went out to dinner. we told the waiter we were on a date and we had a babysitter and we were going to see one of our favorite bands. he said we needed some jager shots. he bought them for us. i was a bit drunk when i gave him the pick. this is a VERY terrible picture of me, but it's the only one i have, so i am sharing it with you. (notice the pick in his hand...)
