Spring Fever Edition of the Basementcast

When we first moved into our house, one of our neighbors offered us some chickens. She assured us that they were little trouble and that once you have a farm fresh egg you’ll never go back to the store bought ones. I balked at having chickens in the backyard, and still buy eggs from the grocery store or the farmer’s market. There are times that I wish we would have taken the offer, usually it’s at breakfast time. What does this have to do with the fourth installment of the basementcast you may wonder? Absolutely nothing, but there are backyard references made a few times in this one and a cameo appearance from my daughter Elsa who also talks about the backyard, sans chickens of course.  It’s the spring fever edition of the basementcast.

      Yeah, that it is a great record. Do you know his record Sugarmouth? I think that one is my personal favorite. I really hope Merge puts out this new one.

    I’m from Italy and I speak a very little english, so: sorry.

    This is the first time in your web page… Where’s f*****g I was before?! I understand the half of what you wrote, but I can ear music. I think that I’ll take a look (and two ears) at your pages everyday, from now on.

    What a cool place: can I take some friends?

    Great job, Guys.
