Sigh. Dan Auerbach and Jim James remind me so much of the friend I’m hung up on, I couldn’t help throwing in Mike Einziger for an auburn-headed cuties with beards appreciation post.
More auburn awesomeness.

Another 30 day music challenge
19. Snog, marry, avoid the first 3 artists on shuffle.
We don’t say “snog” here in the U.S., but I get the picture. As for “marry,” I’ve already blogged extensively about how I would not marry any musician or artist, because I know from experience that what attracts you to them is what eventually drives you insane. “Avoid” makes no sense, because if they’re on my iPod, it means I like them, so why would I want to avoid them? So really, the question is, “to snog, or not to snog?” So here goes: The first song to come up is, appropriately enough, Strange Desire by The Black Keys. Definitely snog. One, or the other, or preferably both. Next up is I Fought Piranhas by The White Stripes. Jack White I would so totally snog. Finally, Sweet Cloud by The Kills. Well, I think Jamie Hince is or was married to a supermodel, so I don’t think I could compete with that. However, although I’ve never snogged or had the desire to snog a woman, I sure wouldn’t kick Alison Mosshart off my couch.
My auburn-haired friend, for whom I can’t help having the hots because he reminds me of these beauties, has his reasons for not joining our Incuhair Movement. He’s promised not to shave his beard, though - presumably in solidarity with us. His “Incubeard,” he’s calling it. Works for me.

True to form, my camera battery flatlined during the set’s last song. So many bands, so little juice. But just before the final encore I remembered I also had an iTouch with me. Not fancy, but at least in some way I was able to capture a great ending to a great festival.
