Two giant art loves in my life are Neko Case and Julie Morstad. To me, it's hauntingly and perfectly beautiful when they combine their magical powers. I could watch this video over and over again.

What a gorgeous surprise when excerpts from this video flashed on the screen at Neko's concert here in town on a recent Sunday night! Can't get it out of my head, but that's okay because I don't really want to!
