After an unexpected and unwanted stay in B.C. (thanks for bumping us Air Canada!) I have finally made it back to good ol’ Portland. In the last two weeks I wandered through the US, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. During this period I was often the lonely female in a sea of testosterone. Boys from here, Brit boys, Columbian boys, Scotch-Irish and Irish-Scotch boys and so on and so on… My grand realization is that they all dressed pretty similarly (future rocket scientist here). I cannot decide if this is Western boys in general or if it is because of the inserted phenomenon of rock and roll. You be the judge.

A most polite and adorable display: Keane bassist Jesse Quin, drummer Richard Hughes, Helio Sequence’s Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel plus Merch Master to the stars Kyle.
