8:57 pm - February 12th Hayden Show at UBC'S Norm Theatre

If anyone has or knows of some selling a ticket for Hayden's Tuesday February 12th show in Vancouver, I am more than willing to take it off your hands.

Hope to hear from someone soon.

today at work, my coworkers and i were talking about narrative songs and how cool it is when a musician/band can write teeny little stories instead of continually writing about the same emotion over and over again, obviously i brought hayden into the conversation.

i chose "when this is over." it was really a beautiful moment.

i wish he'd tour again already!

Dear Hayden,
when you realize you are gay, I will gladly make your babies. I can't make kraft dinner without you.

Much love,

2:38 pm - Hayden interview

Hello! How awesome that there's a specific Live Journal community for Hayden. My name's Grace and I live in Australia. I've been into Hayden for a couple of years; I have Skyscraper National Park, Elk Lake Serenade and Everything I Long For.

To get to the point, I'm a DJ for a local community radio station here in Brisbane, and on Monday I have to do a phone interview with Hayden. (He's also playing on Monday night!)

So, as a fan of Hayden, what would you most like to ask him?

(I hope this doesn't seem like "do my homework for me". I am actually a fan, and I wouldn't have agreed to do the interview if I didn't want to. But I'm not a very experienced or professional interviewer and I don't want to sound like an idiot. I figure it's always a good idea to know what the most devoted fans would ask--I did the same thing with the Devendra Banhart LJ community a while back and got some fantastic suggestions, only Devendra Banhart never called when he was supposed to [jerk] so I never did that interview; but this is another story.)

I saw Hayden on Friday at Lee's Palace
It was my first time seeing him and I thought he was amazing
I was right upfront and it was really hot and I ended up passing out
I was kind of upset that I didn't get to see the whole show but it was still great
He played some of my favs like My parent's house and bass song
I hope I get to see him again
I got some pics, if they're any good, I'll post them
I just wanted to share that

current mood: sick

11:45 am - Hayden tabs

Does anyone know of a good website that has harmonica tabs for Hayden songs? I guess a good guitar site would be fine too, but I'm really interested in the harmonica.

1:18 pm - off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of...

I am going to see my family in wonderful Saskatoon on Wednesday. I am very excited because I haven't seen them since last summer so it shall be good times. I am staying for 10 days (just long enough to want to come back home). Erin will be there too so it will be great to see her. I love my best friend.
I have to work tonight till 6am so that is a bummer. We have a new kids line coming in. Hopefully we can leave early. Last night I stayed till 3am for the new Gap line. Everyone was so bitchy including me so hopefully tonight it's different. I swear I am going to be on the ground sleeping by 4am or laughing so much because I am so over tierd...oh well Saskabush here I come!!
The Fringe festival starts when I get there so that should be fun. It will make Saskatoon a little less boring.
Well that's it for now
See ya belle,

current mood: blank

i saw hayden tonight, in virginia, with sarah harmer. i had him sign a business card i had found in my purse. <3
he of course was amazing...even when he forgot words to songs or made mistakes. yay

the songs he played from the new album seem a bit softer, more country, hayden style none-the-less. and in my eyes, he can do no wrong. :D

maybe one time i can get him to remember meeting me! *just a goal* <3
