Tim on Tour: Edinburgh, Scotland
Hello there, Tim Nordwind reporting to you from Edinburgh, Scotland.

In Edinburgh there are lots of Norwegian girls who study at the local university. Some study publishing, while others study political science or architecture. All are hot. One Norwegian girl named Margit Millstein from Oslo taught me how to say "Talk to the hand because the face won't listen" in Icelandic. It goes a little something like this, "taladtu vid hendera adt vit andletet er ekki adt hlusta." Pretty sweet, right? She also made sure to remind me that one must always say this phrase with attitude. They (the Norwegian girls) invited me over to their house after the show for milk and cookies, but I politely declined so I could get back to my hotel room and write to my public about the aforementioned events re: the Norwegian girls.

After playing our show tonight I also met a lovely Scottish woman who looked to be in her late thirties or early forties. After recognizing me as being the bald guy with glasses on stage playing bass and dancing, she said probably the best thing anyone could every say to me in a Scottish accent, at least regarding our dance to "A Million Ways." She said (please think to yourself in your thickest, phlegmiest brogue,) "You're a wee little dancer, you are." Ah, it was music to my ears. Like little Hobbits, these fine Scots. I love them all.

That's all I have time for tonight. I must get a little shut eye, for our lobby call is at 9am. We make our way to Newcastle tomorrow for our second show with Brendan Benson; a fellow Michigander like myself. He is from Detroit and I am from the magical city of Kalamazoo. Brendan and his band mates are good souls. I doubt I will ever have to use the phrase taladtu vid hendera adt vit andletet er ekki adt hlusta
with them. Sweet dreams my darling public. Remember, dreams really do come true.

Forever True,

Tim Nordwind xoxo.

Beware the Norwegian girls. They are known to be devastatingly hard to resist.

Molly told me to run, i did..then i tripped and fell. thanks a lot. no seriously, thanks a lot =) because now she's letting me sit down and watch all these wonderful videos of yourn. they are just the best thing since sliced deli meats... which are really quite remarkable, seeing as they also come in those awesomely efficient and yet penetrable bags which i like to refer to as "hambags". i personally enjoy an afternoon of hambag fill them with sauce, tuna or whatever you feel compliments your cranky buddies best.

Rock on guys!

Happy Birthday, Damian! Tim, you deserve those Norwegian hotties. It's the weirdest thing: My birthday was Oct. 7th too, and on my birthday I went to Disneyworld where my friends and I hung out at Epcot, mostly Norway with all the hot guys! Now when we want to say someone is hot, we just say that they must be Norwegian.

But enough about me, as a gift for being so cool, I'm offering something of mine to ya'll. I was listening to the latest Ok Go album, Crash The Party to be exact, and I realized, "Gosh, I have a front lawn, and omg, my dad owns a Cadillac El Dorado." So I was thinking, if you ever wanted to use his '76 Candy-Apple-Red El Dorado Convertable for, say, a music video, it'd be yours. And heck, if you need a front lawn (2 acres, perfect for those wild parties with bon fires) I'll throw in that, too.

Seriously the dance is fuckin tight! it's very refreshing to see and hear a band actually be creative for once. Oh, and the blog that actually gets updated? WOW. Coolpointsthroughtheroof.
Have fun in the UK- drink as much guiness as you can over there for all your stuck-in-america fans. And then come back and do another tour for said fans! xoxo

Tim! I spoke to you after the Edinburgh show (and after you'd spoken to the late thirties/early forties woman), and you told me something different! You said she called you "a wee groover"! Please clarify the situation; the public needs to know how to refer to you.

(PS. I was Adam, and we talked about bass and your influences, and then I tried, on no foundation, to insinuate that Damian didn't like Brendan Benson. Remember?!)

Tim.. you are all amazing, creative fellows! Ok Go is so much fun... and that's from an old gal! Y'all make me wish I was young all over again! That dance routine... a stroke of genius! And I could watch your videos all day! I hope you get rich and famous... you deserve it....but please don't change! I haven't enjoyed music this much in a long time! Thanks so very, very much.

I know this is very late but actually it's : Talaðu við hendina á þér því andlitið er ekki að hlusta.
(Talk to the hand because the face isn't listening)

Love from Iceland...
