Oh man, I have the hardest time finishing books. I'd be the one at the book club that has only gotten into the first five chapters (which i devoured on day one) before something distracted me and I never picked it back up. That caramel corn looks delicious!

Understated folk with sweet thoughtful lyrics, maybe a little bit dark. This is Tallest Man on Earth: (...) One catch: after soundcheck the day before, Tallest Man’s guitars were locked inside the NYC music venue, Town Hall, where he’d be playing later that night with Bon Iver. Solution: we’d have...
