The Bon Iver Pronounciation Debate:

First and foremost, pardon me if this becomes one of the dumbest blog posts i've put out there. I finally went in for my cough and cold today, and it turns out I have Bronchitis AND a sinus infection... so there are all kinds of gross things going on inside my body. The antibiotic they have me on is making me nauseous and exhausted. I am seriously going to bed as soon as Beauty and the Geek (one of my not-so-secret favorite shows) is over...

However, this means that I haven't smoked for most of the day... it's making me cranky. But maybe it's time to quit? Hmm... if I can make it through the next couple days, I might finally say goodbye to that nasty habit. I found myself being incredibly embarassed when the doctor asked me how long I had been smoking (don't ask).

But what I really need to know IS... how do you really pronounce Bon Iver?? Ok, yes -maybe Justin Vernon means it to mean "Good Winter," but after having my pronunciation corrected the other night, and my four years of sort-of paying attention in high school French has me a bit perplexed and jonesing for some clarificiation. First and foremost, if it's Winter, it's Hiver... Not Iver. So can't I just say "eye-ver" without getting corrected??

I need to figure this out before I finally see Bon Iver (NEXT WEEK) in Eau Claire. I was a week ahead of myself and thought it was today...

It's pronounced like the French words for "Good Winter," and it is intentionally misspelled.

Maybe you can have it up with Justin on the 6th.

Can't wait!

the name Bon Iver is an Anglicization of the French, "bon hiver" (good winter).
