"out in california," from one of mark's band's self-titled album, "edison gower," is going to be on new girl next week! we won't know how it's used until we watch the show, but it's in there and he's gettin' some straight cash dollars! i *think* mark wrote this during the year we were apart, him having moved back to richmond before i was able to come out almost a year later. there's a girl in the song i like to think is me - mark says she's more of an idea, but she could be me if i wanted.. haha. it's definitely one of my favorites.. it reminds me of the desert and the time.. it makes me miss california. the only thing i wish is that he had sung it for the record (the other guy, jake, sang it), but he is on the harmonies and the "middle 8."
anyway, watch the show and let me know what you think.
and here's a link to the rough demo if you fancy hearing mark sing it a bit slap dash.. haha
