Some days I like to check in on old college friends' blogs, and so I was following Baratunde Thurston's ascent as a liberal comedian, whereupon I chanced upon a link to singer/songwriter Mieka Pauley's site. Good to see she's still singing, and apparently doing well... I met her way back in '02, when she opened for Glen Phillips (formerly of Toad the Wet Sprocket) and did this awesome version of "Angel From Montgomery". Such a talent - she's got the guitar chops of a folk singer, but she can belt it like a soul singer.
Mieka Pauley MP3s - try "The Way It Is".
He dumped me.
Then he dated my friend Yvonne for quite a bit longer (I'd introduced them) and she eventually dumped him. Ha!
And it's fun to see the dumpers become the dump-ed.
