Multiple Blog Points

First Food For Thought:

I'd like to take a moment and consider bears and anorexia. What's the difference? Bears eat all this food and then don't eat for months! They turn out all skinny and weak. Anorexics -- they also don't eat for months and become all skinny and weak. You. tell. me.

Charlotte would like me to let you know that she does not agree.

I'm okay with that.


Second Comparison:

Feist and Ben Gibbard
in reference to their "Train Song".

Miss Leslie, also known as Marissa Lundin, sings with much more of an inflection. She almost has a jazzy feel to her vocals along with her accented, grooving melodies. Benjamin has much more of a straight tone, which is perfect for his style of music, calm and flowing. Together they make a beautiful love-child of a song. You must listen! It's from the compilation album Dark Was the Night featuring many of my favorite artists including, but not limited to:

  • Andrew Bird
  • Arcade Fire
  • Beirut
  • Bon Iver
  • Cat Power
  • The Decemberists
  • Feist
  • Ben Gibbard
  • Iron & Wine
  • The New Pornographers
  • Conor Oberst
  • Spoon
  • Sufjan Stevens


Weekend Review!

Friday was a good day. Charlotte and I agreed upon that fact immediately upon awaking. The Previous night we had seen Watchmen, so I slept in until 12:30, only rising to go to Media at 2. After some a-okay demos on Final Cut we were released around 3 to enjoy the gorgeous day at hand. It was a lovely 42 degrees, and after a quick team meeting with our film group, Charlotte and I decided to pack up our cameras and go on a walk.

We strolled down to Lyndale, dodging the melty, muddy puddles on the way, and stopped in at this little used instruments shop called Encore Music. I love this place, and I want to visit it often when the weather is nice. They had a few beautiful Epiphones, which I'd really like to have someday. They play with such a warm, round tone. I can't take it! Mm mm MM!

Then we went to the gallery openings at the school. Lots o' free pizza. The Piotr Szychalski gallery was BOMB. I wish I could have that as a recording. I wonder if I could actually get that from him...I should email him.
I emailed him.

Then we went home and I tried to nap but I couldn't because OH! -- I forgot to mention I got to beatbox with the magical Eli again! I was so nervous! That was so many people! I turned bright red and got sweaty and shaky. I couldn't hardly breathe! But yeah. I couldn't sleep because I kept beatboxing while I was lying in the dark. I was so pumped at that point! So finally it came time to leave again.

We went to Kelly's, Tuesday's roomie, birthday party. We danced til 2 in the morning! What a blast. Fo realz. I can't wait to hang out with some of those peopel on a more regular basis. Then we came home and I watched more Heroes and crashed.

Woke up to go to the Mall o' America with le girls (Z, K, Flower, Ruth, Leslie Feist, and Sharlut, to be exact). What an overwhelming experience of fun! I got a blue flannel shirt, some Thinsulate glittens, and, as previously stated, Dark Was the Night. Solid, solid. We also saw some RAD steppers. Once Beyonce's "Diva" came on, it was all OVA. So good!

I went home with Z and K, and then Z and I went to do homework at Spyhouse. I had a delicious hot chocolate with a shot of hazelnut (thanks to my sister's advice!), and then I realized the internet wasn't too spectacular, refusing my usage of the Adobe programs, thus I couldn't work on any homework. After we finished our drinks, we continued our studies in the good ole College Center.

After a while I came home, had some dinner, then went to 301 for brownies, movies, and, most of all, friends. We watched Baxter and sang songs. Then Sharlut and I came home and decided to blog together.

So that's where we are now.
Guess you're pretty up-to-date.


Tomorrow's Plans are as follows:
  • Fellowship
  • Homework
  • Shopping
  • Carl's Party
  • Filming
  • More Party

You need to wear your gloves and flannel together: a true mountain woman!
