For Green Week at work, they gave us nicely printed cards on seed paper (paper with seeds embedded in it) that we’re encouraged to plant at home. But no indication as to what kind of plants will grow out of these seeds. My conscience says “Yay! Plant seeds! Green is good!” My sense says, “I don’t want random and strange weeds or plant-strangling/man-eating shrubs at my house!”
Boo iTunes, yay The Weepies
New Weepies album Hideaway arrived! Looking forward to listening to it.
It’s weird getting CDs (even cool autographed album covers), because I’m just going to burn it to my computer so that I can actually listen to it and access it anytime/put it on my mp3 player, etc..
*update: This really is an adorable (puppy huggable cute) album.
btw, Joshua Radin, Mandy Moore, Schuyler Fisk are in the credits. So is “Theo, who was closely involved with every aspect of this recording, from start to finish.”
Went to my first hocky game ever..
I don’t think I’ve ever watched a serious chunk of hockey even on TV before.
My general expectations of impressions going in were all on base — it’s a pretty engaging, well-paced, high-contact game at which I cringe, gasp, and frequently want to scold the big men for being mean to each other.
Saw Ingrid Michaelson in concert the other day. Have to say, she comes across much better live than she does on her album tracks. On stage she has lots of personality, she’s very funny and friendly, and much more energy comes through her voice and the instruments/general sound than was captured in the album production. I like her songs a whole lot more now than before the concert.
a: What’s the difference between these two rosés?
Waiter: Well, they’re both rosés so they’re going to be really similar.
Waiter: One comes in a half bottle, the other one comes in a full bottle (as was clearly marked on the menu). But they’re both pretty much the same wine.
The Slip – Children of December
reminds me of
Blue Merle – Burning in the Sun
Playing with Xobni for the first time.
A little mesmerized… Can’t give a real review yet, but I will say it is very fast, fluid, and pretty!
Much appreciation to John for the invite. I did get a direct invite from Xobni shortly thereafter, but still — thank you for the Xobni invite, John!
*update: okay, a couple of issues:
- I should be able to keep several “tabs” open to jump back and forth between. Instead, the tabs seem to operate on breadcrumb hierarchy, in which you can go back/up, but then can’t go forward/down anymore because going back/up removes everything in front/below.
- I should probably be able to pop-out search results, and/or have multiple and customizable columns to better organize my search results. That being said, search is fast. Happily so.
Release is April 22nd. Yay :)
(The whale on the album cover is reminding me of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.)
why does J.Crew hate hoods?
you know (to the sadness of my wallet) that I love you.. but what the HECK is the point of a raincoat withOUT a hood!?
It doesn’t even make sense!
Speaking of things that are grey rather than pure "good"....
I’m a bit disconcerted by how addicting it apparently is to meanly murder and steal from cheeky and spunky little villagers. And it probably doesn’t say the best of things about me that I am frustrated about being unable to make practical use of the fires and wooden posts propped about the scene…
