Preemptive Love Coalition - Remedy Mission

I'm interning with PLC this summer. In fact, I leave on Friday! They work to fund and provide heart surgeries for Iraqi children who have been gravely affected by Saddam Hussein's chemical warfare. PLC has an amazing opportunity to provide 30 surgeries for kids in one month!!!!! That's about the same amount they were able to provide in all of 2009! But they need to raise a sizable chunk of money quick! Please consider donating any amount of money you can to this cause. It will truly make an impact.

Dawes - When My Time Comes

I have loved this song since I first heard it. Now there is a wonderful little story of a video to accompany this fantastic tune.

Wakey! Wakey! and Alexander Fairchild

Friends With Both Arms has given me many musical gifts (the best of which has been Mumford and Sons last October). Most recently these two videos were posted and once again I was thankful for FWBA's presence in my life. 
Things I like about Car Crash by Wakey! Wakey!...awkward teen drama, his voice, violin. 
Things I like about Not Gonna Argue by Alexander Fairchild...lyrics, creepy love/murder story, flannel.
