I haven't planted mine yet but I'm planning to. I have a little garden space but planting here is tricky right now. We're having spring weather followed by blizzards then spring weather then frost so I'm not sure when to plant yet.

I still haven't connected with Orange Knickers yet but that's how it is with me and Tori...I'll not like a song for a long time and then suddenly it's my favorite. Mostly I still haven't gotten over the title!

There tends not to be that problem here in the spring. But I have learned not to leave my plants outside in the summertime or they'll be scorched to a crisp.

Nice live, solo, studio performances of Sleeping with Butterflies and Parasol. Gives me an idea what I can expect in Denver.

I adore Parasol, orange knickers, sleeps with butterlys, goodbye picses... fantastic album....and I think she is totally crazy, the dvd proves that. I love her - looking forward to seeing her play london in June and tom mcrae is supporting who I also adore! should be an amazing night.

No way! Apparently it is not safe to plant mine here until May.

FYI, I recommend downloading from the mirror version. Much faster. This sounds freaking great.

Wow. I want to hear that as a b-side on the next single! It sounds so beautiful and the lyrics take on a completely different meaning (or even a meaning at all!) when Tori sings it.

Edit: Had to get Doughnut Song while I was at it, as that's long been my favorite Tori song. It is excellent and takes me back to when I heard her play it on the Dew Drop Inn tour.

P.S. I'll PM you back as soon as I can, joyful.

So I finally freaking listened to The Beekeeper. I know I'm super late, better late than never though! It was really good. I didnt know what to expect, so many ho-hum reviews, but it was fantastic on first listen. I'd agree that it was a bit long, but I dont blame her for not knowing what to cut.

The title track was my favorite on the CD, for obvious electronic purposes.

The title song is my favorite, too, and apparently it is the highlight of the tour, according to fan reviews. It's what "I Can't See New York" was to the last tour. I listened to the live, solo version and it's fantastic (the new material in general sounds great live and solo--check out Parasol, too):

I actually like long records, but that's just me. I know a lot of people don't.

One more week til the Tori Denver show.

THANK YOU, guys, for reminding me that hereinmyhead website exists. I haven't had enough dosh to buy the latest Tori or U2 (pats myself sympathetically).

Anyway, I listened to PARASOL on the updates section, and it sounds like Tori is playing AT LEAST three keyboards!!! Someone explain, post pictures please!!! Is she playing with her feet as well on the organ, or what?! This is the most exciting piano news I've got since Alicia Keys played an intro upside-down sitting on the piano!

Also, also, don't you just love Tori's speaking voice...

Having seen her upclose many times, I can tell you she has 6 hands with 12 fingers on each. Seriously! Listen to Beekeeper next. I'll wait.

But - but - it really does sound like it's a double layered organ + piano. Am I right, or..?

Downloading beekeeper now.

I don't know what the hell she's playing. You have a better ear for that than I do. There are times when the audience bursts into cheers and applause for no obvious reason and I can only imagine she must be doing some serious multitasking, lol. I'm seeing her next week, though, so I'll let you know.
