>Canada Post, Bon Iver and this month in magazines

>Can I say how lucky we are to have a functioning Postal Service? (So important I felt the need to capitalise)

Hooray for Canada Post to be back in action. I was greeted on my way to work by a large package – the new Bon Iver album. I was a little late for work, so I grabbed it and opened it on the drive to work.

It has really taken all of me not to buy this album even though I had purchased it already through the Jagjaguar website. I only technically am a week behind all you Bon Iver addicts.

Yesterday, in sheer anticipation, I purchased the new Spin and Rolling Stone magazines. Fab covers with fab articles, these have to be some of the best music magazine issues that I’ve stumbled upon in a while. It’s really odd to see Bon Iver on the cover of Spin. My friend Nicole was right in posting

Bon Iver, aka Bon Iver has become a serious household name. Absolutely ridiculous. I am so happy to say that I have seen Bon Iver twice at a tiny dive like Lee’s Palace before seeing him at the Sound Academy.

My first real listen to Bon Iver is happening as I type. I love it to pieces already. It’s so different from For Emma Forever Ago.

Review to follow this evening. I can’t wait to give you my two cents.

Also, in talking about the Canada Post and how much I use our national mail service, please check out the following:

I’ve felt so inspired to write letters since stumbling upon these two lovely Toronto-based outlets.
