Tour de Georgia '08

We did the first stage of the Tour de Georgia today! Jason and I were in S.C. visiting my parents, close to Savannah so we made the trip down to see the action. We arrived a little early, before the expo was in full swing, but it was still nice to see a bunch of people out to support the race! Jason had a little dance with Hope (of Hope and Will, the mascots of CHOA).

We are always happy to support CHOA in anyway we can. They have consistently taken great care of Jason in his times of need (Broken Arm, Thyro-glossal Duct Cyst surgery). It is very comforting to have them so close!

Jason's iMix!

Well, we haven't set up a true iMix for him as of yet, but as many of you know, Jason is very opinionated when it comes to the music he listens too. To be honest I probably set us up for this as I've always asked him what he wants to listen to in the car. Through the years he's liked a ton of really fun songs, so I thought it would be fun to start a chronicle of "Jason's top song".

His current favorite song is "A-Punk" by Vampire Weekend. I've linked it to the video posted on YouTube. Hey, Craig, can you do me a favor and tell me what kind of guitar that is? On a personal note, I really like these guys, my favorite of their's is "Cape Code Kwassa Kwassa". This link goes to a live version, so you can't hear the music all that well, but it has a good energy.

Some recent other favorites are:

"Won't Go Home Without You" - Maroon 5 - From the album "It won't be soon before too long"
"Such Great Heights" - The Postal Service (interesting side note, as a baby/1 year old, he loved the slower, and I think original, version by Iron and Wine from the Garden State soundtrack, but now he likes this faster version).
"Shadowplay" - the Killers - this is a remake of a Joy Division song; Jason likes the begining

I'll save some of the others for the next post! Take a listen, you might like 'em too!
