Back in the U.S.S.A.

Can you feel it in the air y'all? C'mon, sure you can. James is back on this side of the pond! Their US tour (all 3 weeks of it) started in Boston on Sunday and according to Boston.com, their reunion is a rocking affair. Good press for James, that never happens. It feels like all the stars are aligning at last.


Of course my own personal countdown clock continues to tick away in joyful anticipation as the bacon-wrapped leg of the James tour heads my way. Which of course gets me to thinking about how the hell am I going to pay for this?! funding. I am still pulling together my trip financing in any way possible. I've returned pop cans, pet sit the neighbor's dog and emptied out every pocket in every pair of jeans that I own. I've also got a few new items up on Etsy including my Blue Plate Special necklace , Mitzi note cards and more.


Check it out. Remember, the holidays are sneaking up on us fast. Why not get some hand made goodies now and avoid the rush?

Or......

If you're interested in a more musical purchase, Hey Ma is finally available today here in the US! I've said it before and I'll say it again, this album is amazing! Buy it. Really. You won't be sorry.



And as a thank you to everyone who has managed to read to the end of this post. For you my loyal reader, I am doing Zenmomma's Garden's first ever


That's right. In one swell foop I will answer the burning question on everyone's mind. Namely, "Who the hell is James?" (While also probably doubling their US sales total.)
So if you are interested in receiving your very own FREE copy of James' fantastic new CD, Hey Ma, just leave a comment on today's post. I'll leave comments open until Monday, Sept. 22. Then I'll choose a comment number at random and award you, my lucky reader, the most coveted of all items, music from Zenmomma's favorite obsession band. Good luck!

I have to admit, I'm intrigued by all your James love.

I'd love to invite James into my CD player and ears.

I think we need to have James on our iPod (we are slowly joining the next century...gave away almost all our cassette tapes and ALL our records with the move...)

He may not be as talented as John Mayer, but that James Blunt feller holds a special place in my heart so I dream of winning me his new album. Hope its got lots of smouldering hits on it!

Who is this James guy again?

Mary? I was just kidding, Mary. Please don't hurt me. I totally know who he is, I promise, just don't hit me anymore! He's - uh - the guy who invented bacon! Right?

Right?

Maybe you'd better give it to traceytreasure. ;P
