Glen and Mar on Kevin Pollak's Chat Show

Glen and Mar were on Kevin Pollak's chat show a couple of days ago. Painting, the madness of the Oscars, carpentry, picking mushrooms, a classic retelling of Glen's first time meeting Van Morrison, and the experience of playing Eunice Kennedy Shriver's funeral are a few of the things you'll hear.

The interview is a good hour and a half long and definitely worth a watch.

It’s out of her control (she may as well not have any where he’s concerned) – the thoughts of him…

A/N: Been inspired by kids in Book Camp, in which I’m volunteering at for the entire week. These 12 year-olds are pretty darn amazing.

It’s times like these when she misses him the most.

Glen & Mar on NPR

Glen & Mar recorded seven songs for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series -- six new ones plus When Your Mind's Made Up. It's basically Glen on lead with Mar singing backing vocals.


Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova record and tour together using the name The Swell Season, which is a shorter but far less descriptive moniker than "Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, Who Won Oscars for the Song 'Falling Slowly,' From the Hit Indie Musical Once." So when we informed our coworkers that last Wednesday's Tiny Desk Concert would feature the pair, the response generally ran somewhere along the lines of, "Um, okay. ... Wait, who? THEM? REALLY?"

Hansard and Irglova stopped by our Washington, D.C., offices as a way of passing time between trips to New York and Denver, with the understanding that 1) we'd set up a keyboard for Irglova to play; and 2) they'd be expected to perform the standard three- or four-song Tiny Desk set. Both plans fell by the wayside quickly. The gigantic keyboard we'd provided would have been far more suitable had Irglova been a member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, so they opted to scrap it and huddle up around Hansard's battered acoustic guitar. And three songs? Well, that wouldn't do. Hansard kept asking to play longer; not surprisingly, he met little resistance.

Summary: He looked at her – the girl he thought he had loved, had lost, and then regained, only to realize that she was not the one at all.

A/N: I still find it strange (but cool) that Glen and Marketa’s characters in the film didn’t have actual names. On imdb, they’re merely referred to as ‘Guy’ and ‘Girl’. It’s quite amusing. Anyway, I just watched this movie yesterday, and I fell in love with it! So I decided to look up some fanfictions, but unfortunately found none. So here I am, contributing some. Hopefully, they’re not too shabby.

He looked into her eyes – the girlfriend he remembered singing so bitterly about just a few months ago to a total stranger...
