Re: Burning Hearts

'i lost my colour vision' was a big favorite amongst my non-indiepop-listening friends. they have cross-genre appeal, no doubt.

Re: Gail O'Hara (from Chickfactor) and her lovely photographs

the chickfactor website has some good photos which i don't think are on o'hara's page (though i think she took them). the one of tracyanne campbell circa 2002 in the 'cf black + white ball, london 2002' is my favorite.

Re: it's always sunny in philadelphia
