Modest Music

Posted by on June 23 at 17:57 PM

In the middle of downtown Portland is a cafe called Island Joe’s. I’m presently sitting in this cafe because my hotel down the road doesn’t have free WiFi.
This ordinary place, Island Joe’s, is suddenly special because a few minutes ago its stereo played Modest Mouse’s “Gravity Rides Everything.” That song is truly a NW gem.

a NW gem maybe. but what it most definitely is, is the soundtrack for a Nissan minivan commercial.

Who cares. Way to go, Nissan! And bless you, Charles. I understand that you are a genius and for once, ONCE, I read your entire post and understood every word. It makes me feel a little bit smarter.

Portland is such a wonderful city. I hope you are having a good time.

ah, my favorite modest mouse song--so beautiful. i love it when songs like that suddenly come on when you are in a coffeeshop/bar/etc...

i thought that was you. i saw you on saturday having breakfast at the doug fir. i was directly across from you in the booth with two other seattlites, playing peek-a-boo with the girls you were with.
