It's a superhero, it's a violin, it's a girl-version Andrew Bird!

The Cup

When Amanda Kapousouz moved to NYC for fame and fortune, her father gave her a tin tip cup that still hangs from her fiddle case with a note that read, "Go make some money."

Why I Like It
  1. Tin is my favorite metal and who doesn't like prophets? Cups I'm a little finicky about, but 2/3 ain't bad and I hear there's a fiddle involved.
  2. I knew she used to play with Jump Little Children. I hated their 1998 record but still listen to it at least once a month. Running with people like that is usually a good sign.
  3. Amanda played at Smith's Olde Bar a whole bunch and I count that gem among my homeboy venues. Any friend of Smith's...
  4. The 2 songs I've heard are damn pleasing and interesting. They remind me of Andrew Bird, and I don't have to tell you how I feel about him.

How you can determine if you like it
...and if you do, these songs will appear on Liar and the Thief, released April 24th

toenail have been a very important part of our body and they are thought of being a mirror to one’s health.Any disorder that one may seize in the nails,that is out of common than the normal fingernails look,must be taken into consideration.
So we must use all below treatment.
Using a toenail clipper that has straight edge will help in cutting the toenails properly leaving no room for any in-growth.
