Near miss in Montmartre

Wha--what??

The Shins were recently a few blocks from my apartment recording one of my favorite songs as a Concert à Emporter.

The tractor beam - the one that should have pulled me through the open window and deposited me within grabbing range of all that facial hair - was not working.

How could I not have known?

I suppose it's better this way. Had I been there, the "Gone for Good" video would have included a distant female backing vocal.

Oh my god! the shins! I had a huge obsession with them. I even started dreaming about them. You have good taste that's for sure. i can't believe that they were so close to you. you felt the shins vibes. I saw them only once live in San Francisco. soo cool.

"les shins" LOL!
