High Five! from Enjoy Your Pumas' Josh Benoit

Guitarist Josh Benoit was kind enough to toss up a High Five! before hitting the stage with Enjoy Your Pumas for their Commonality CD release party at Winnipeg's Park Theatre on Sunday, January 30th. These are a few things he loves:

1) Oil of Oregano
For sinus colds... or spaghetti.

2) Louie
Written and created by the stand-up comedian Louis C.K., Louie is a show on the FX channel that makes observations about being a divorced, middle-aged, overweight father of two girls. I don't necessarily relate to Louie, but I think he's funny.

3) Four Tet's There Is Love In You
This album is a great instrumental, electro-pop album. Put it on in the background, put it on in the foreground, just don't put it on a curling iron burn. Unfortunately, it does nothing for burns.

4) Mexico
Not only is Mexico a beautiful, warm place, but it's also the number one vacation destination for Monarch butterflies! I wish I were there now.

5) Spike Jonze
When Spike Jonze is not controlling the body of John Malkovich with the mind of John Cusack, he's busy throwing paint and shooting confetti at the folks from LCD Soundsystem under the pretense of a "music video." Spike is a zany director and he seems like an alright dude.

To celebrate the end of the nine to five, a Green Light Go staff member or artist will leave you with their short list of favorite things, better known as the High Five!
