One more thing!

Donovan has been getting me through these trying summer expereinces! His first album was this awesome acoustic jam session and each song felt like he was singing it to you in front of a bonfire and it was FUCKING AMAZING! I didn't think that he could top it, and then he released his second album a few months ago. I went to the record release concert a couple months back and I was COMPLETELY impressed with this new sound! Have a listen.

Just a little background on Donovan. He's a pro surfer, but he doesn't compete. Moslty because he's to cool for competition, but also he doesn't believe in it. Putting all the rest of us money hungry sell out surfers to shame. And making us feel like performing monkeys. He is also a fixture in my favorite surfing movie series, "Drive Thru", directed by Greg Browning (who is also a prolific surfer in his own right. And lives about 10 minutes from me.). The thing that is so awesome about this guy is the freedom he gives himself to do whatever he wants. He doesn't care about things that the rest of us seem to be all caught up in, and it really shows in his music. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy.

You must be such a cool guy. The rest of us lowly humans get our music from teh radio, and you always are listening to something that I have never heard of! Is this an LA thing or are you just this music sevant put onto this world to make people like me that are listening to fall out boy and Panic! feel like super lame lemmings with no actual opinions of our own?

Really I need to know the answer to that long winded question! It will keep me up for hours until you tell me! hahaha. Sorry. But really. Good tunes, I feel like my cool status has gone up a few points because I actually enjoyed him and nobody has ever reall heard of him. Right? Or is he a famous singer and I just sound retarded?
