extending the olive Branch

i've forgotten how Michelle Branch used to sound. my latest download has brought me to (my long coveted) her independent release, before the folks at Maverick *ahem* "discovered" her. There are a few common tracks from The Spirit Room but most of them were spiffed up for its commercial release. Goodbye To You, If Only She Knew, and Sweet Misery all share double billings but appear almost acoustic in Broken Bracelet. Record Landmine is If Only She Knew which didn't appear as an acoustic track but was "remixed", pathetically, of course.



Where is Michelle Branch these days? I heard she's got a new partner, singing partner that is. Plus, this Australian website had this to say. The date says it's old so I don't know what to say now, really.



It is a little late I know, but congratulations to Michelle and her hubby with

their great news. They are going to be having their first child in a few months

time. So lets wish them all the best and hope they enjoy the wonders of

parenthood.


I guess she's married. Further research uncovered she married her bass player who is rumored to be 19 years her senior. Gossip, gossip blah blah.



Didn't you just love the video to Goodbye To You? The radio edited version is soooo much better than the one on the Spirit Room record. Usually, the last singles are the best. 'Till I Get Over You from Hotel Paper is very nice.



Anyways, you know how when Mariah and Jewel started wearing less clothes. I found it interesting how people don't seem to care that Michelle Branch strutted her proverbial stuff in Maxim way back (January 2004). I recently discovered it while looking for lyrics to some nice Broken Bracelet songs. Anyways, if she's pregnant and knew she was going to, I'd pose too just so I'd have a remembrance of how my body looked like.



Even worse is she's totally ditching her sweet image. not that I mind but it's kinda creepy when you say a few words and the image you worked hard to build comes crumbling down. She's always been kinda like the smart classmate who likes poetry and sings average songs. But then she turns around and says "I like Porn" and everything becomes iffy.



Where you’ve seen her:

This 20-year-old siren has already won a Grammy, her debut album, The Spirit Room, sold 2.5 million copies, and she has performed with the likes of Carlos Santana and Sheryl Crow.



The other woman:

“I like guys who are taken. I can’t help it. It’s the guy who’s not paying attention to you. That just kills me.”



Walking the plank:

“I have a pirate fetish—I just always thought eye patches were sexy. If you want to get my attention, wear a pirate outfit.”



Pop tart:

“People have this notion of me being this sweet, nice girl, but…I’m kind of a pervert. We’ll be on the tour bus, and me and my makeup artist will be watching porn.”


In semi-related news, I'm going to get my pictures taken tomorrow with long-ish hair. So that when I'm feeling depressed because of my hair, I'd have a reminder. :D



Michelle sounds better when she wasn't all breatheeaaaaah-ey. You know what I'm talking about? Of all the things I believed inaaaaah. I just wanna get it over wiaaaaath. Boring you with details. Blah blah. Click here to see the whole thing and so I won't have to incriminate myself with softcore on my PC.



I'm not getting any work done. To think after today, my next work day is Tuesday. Can I survive without internet? Hmmm...
