april come she will

so after feeling like complete hell all day long from lack of sleep i had a great friday evening. i got home and slept for 2 and half hours, and when i woke up danny had brought me dinner from one of my favorite restaurants and had it all set up on the table in my room. so we lounged in my room, munching on green mango salad and eggplant curry from mandalay.

then we just sat around listening to simon and garfunkel records. the only one we didn't have has wednesday morning, 3am. and it was wonderful. and every song was amazing.

then we emerged back into the world and ended up watching 'you me and everyone we know.' and it was all pretty great.

indie vintage artsy christmukkah

so danny has two friends who live in berlin and were here this weekend unpacking a storage unit that they have in bmore. they can't take their stuff back to berlin, so they pretty much just gave it all to danny.

one of his friends was a dj so we have 7 crates of vinyl in our living room. books and clothes and music equipment. it's nuts.

and i got a new record player. and it's totally sweet.

this is one of my very favorite songs. i remember putting on the scratchy album and listening to it in my living room in pittsburgh (above) on sunny, young spring days like today. it was a good feeling.

wye oak and jana hunter

so last night danny took me on a surprise trip to frederick. he didn't tell me why we were going, but when we got there he told me that the only theatre still playing avatar in 3D in the state of maryland was in frederick. so i was thinking, uhhh ok i didnt know danny wanted to see avatar so much but ok... so we're driving around looking for the theatre, so i believe. it's 9:45 and he tells me it starts at 10 but if we get there 15 min early we get special edition 3D glasses. okaaaay

so we park and as we're getting out of the car he says, ok actually jana hunter and wye oak are playing a show and we're going to see it.
so unbeknownst to me he took me to an awesome show at an awesome cafe in frederick. and it was totally sweet.

lazy people

it really really annoys me when perfectly-abled people press the handicap automatic open door button in order to walk into a building. i mean what the fuck! have we really gotten to such a point on the lazy scale where we think reaching forward and pulling to open a door is exerting too much energy?? jesus. first it's using stairs. now it's opening doors. we'll just have electricity do it all for us. gaaahhh.

ok. pet peeve. now you know.

ok everybody needs to get into warpaint now. they are amazing.
their drummer is so sick. their harmonies are so sick. their songs are also sick.

and for a more mellow on the street version:
