Phantom Planet was the boy band of my college days. I think I still have three of their albums.

This song always makes me think of the club Tatjana took me to in Koln, Germany. They played this song and everyone sang along in cute German accents. It was awesome.

Ben is doing this weird, frustrating thing; I believe it's called teething. Low fever, grumpy, demanding, wants to be held a lot, no longer sleeping through the night. We're talking periods of wakefulness that last 40 minutes or more at night. Here's hoping last night was the last night.
I feel a little crazy.

So if you're having a bad day maybe this song will help you, too.


  1. Is Jason Schwartzman in this band? I love him to death.

    I hope you get some sleep soon. Reading about these baby exploits is easing my baby fever for now. I do not miss sleepless nights, that's for sure. :-)

  2. Good eye, LB! It is Jason Schwartman. If I remember correctly, his cousin, Sofia Coppola, is the one who directed this video.

  3. Dang. Sorry to say that I don't remember them - all though I just used to listen to what my sister did (Reba) and I didn't know there was anything else for a while...

    Secondly, were you in Koln for World Youth Day, because we were... small world.

  4. I was in Koln for World Youth Day. But actually I was part of a pilgrimmage group and only attended the closing Mass for WYD. We spent the rest of the time in Italy, Poland, and doing home visits in Germany. The rest of the group was in Bavaria, I was near Koln with a friend, Tatjana. So the rest of the group did not go clubbing... just me. tee hee.
