Here's my weekend in a nutshell--writing, Cal Day, dinner, writing. Enjoy :)
I've been working on my First Amendment & the press paper all weekend. So intense.
Around 3:30 I headed to Memorial Glade to see the Cold War Kids concert that started at 4; they went on at 4:30. They played on the steps of Doe Library -- it was so cool! They were here to ~celebrate the end of Global Outreach Week, which the ASUC put on to try and inform students of issues across the globe.
In case you hadn't heard of the Cold War Kids, here's their most famous song, "Hang Me Up To Dry."
Don't waste plastic bags!
COLD WAR KIDS.
Damn the tall people that kept getting in the way of my pictures. Hi, I'm barely 5'2", LET ME IN FRONT OF YOU. Goddamn.
This is a video from the show that I found on Youtube. The show itself was...well, it was mediocre. They're talented musicians (I've seen them play before), but there didn't seem to be any passion behind the music when they played yesterday. They came, they played, they left. Their set was also disappointingly short, no more than about nine songs. That's not a concert, that's an opening act on a bad night. I don't know, on the one hand it was nice to hear live music, and great that we had a band that people had actually heard of come play, but it just wasn't a mind-blowing show. It was fun though, and I met up with an old friend there which was really great!
I made mac & cheese from scratch for dinner!
If you haven't already, meet my camera/best friend/other half, C.J. Brownie points if you know where her name comes from!
Back to writing, I'm determined to finish this paper tonight!
