I’ve had this track for like a week now, but it’s been especially enjoyable as the weather has gotten sunnier.
You should all listen!
I can only guess the album, which is supposed to come out mid-May, will be equally rockin’.
It’s been a while…
I kind of got out of the habit of updating over the last…six months or so.
However, I figured finals is a great time to start again!
Expect some blurry pictures from the Exploratorium and an M. Ward concert to be posted later today.
Well, school’s started, and I’m back!
French is quite the experience, but the most notable thing was certainly picking up the bus (new line!) to campus, when I was running late. Just when the bus seems to be running late, my standing-at-the-bus-stop-friend noticed I’m about to give up and walk to campus (only 20 minutes away). He then helpfully points out that the bus is “always a few minutes late” (not surprising). However, his soothsaying didn’t end there: this stranger successfully predicted the following: “as soon as the Q line crosses this street [gestures], then you’ll instantly see the F line turn on to this street [greature two].” Lo and behold, it happened.
This means that multiple buses in the Unitrans system are late. Not surprising. The surprising aspect - they are all consistently late by the same amount of time, even across various lines!
You’d think it would be pretty easy to just update time tables when things are this consistently off. Hmm.
Yes, I’m flaky. Yes, it’s worse over the summer. However, once school is back, I will update regularly. Have no fear!

So, I haven’t updated in a while. Sorry about that.
I’m certainly not too busy; I’d say that it’s just more that I’m so exhuasted when I get home from my anecdote-free days that there is little to say. That sounded kind of sad!
Regardless, I’ve had a pretty solid weekend. Richard/Aly birthday party last night, lunch with mom/suit shopping today, and, well that’s about it.
Well, on a more exciting note: you should all listen to Okkervil River. I will go so far as to reccomend three tracks: Singer Songwriter, Starry Stairs (wow, they seem to be big on alliterations judging by these first two track titles), and On Tour With Zykos.
While I’m telling you what to do, watch season one of Mad Men. Season two starts next Sunday, and you should be caught up before then. Woo!
Insert witty title here?
Where did the last week and a half go? No one knows! My job actually provides me with even fewer strange anecdotes, at least at this point.
However, Yolobus is quite the opposite. Yolobus is kind of like if Unitrans moved to the sketchy part of town and became abusive. Take this fun story, for example. We’re about to leave the charming metropolis that is Woodland when the bus pulls over just before the highway onramp. I know for a fact that this isn’t a stop, so I think “oh fuck, what’s wrong?” Nothing! Turns out the driver just really really wanted a Coke from 7-11. I’ve got an idea for him: How about, next time, you don’t waste 5 minutes of everyone’s time, and buy your Coke before you get to work! Revolutionary, right?
Also, in an entirely unrelated note, I had two Wikis last night and no hangover this morning! Yay.
Sorry, but I think this will only be of interest to my East Coast readers (hi, Spencer!).
That aside, I noticed a Star Market in Lahaina yesterday. Odd, since I’ve never seen one outside of New England. Whatever. This entry is dumb. The point is, some mediocre grocery store chain from the East Coast decided to open a shop, like, 5,000 miles from any other store it operates. Weird.
