Hunting For Music Just Got Better
I'm not usually the one with an over the top rave, but you have to check this thing out...Musicovery. Well, I still like it. Even more than before. Sure there's an Amazon banner and ads, but they go away with the new option to pay for CD-quality sound.The whole thingamajigg is to die for especially you're in a hunt for new, fresh and out-of-this-world music experience. This is the most beautiful well designed program that is ver created to satisfy new-music hunters like myself. If you want to explore the realm of music deeper and are open to endless possibilities to adopting a new favourtie gig, Musicovery is for you. It's amazingly beautiful, useable, friendly (courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave and clean.) "Reverent" is is not, and that's all that remains of my extremely short boyscout careerThe relatively small dashboard lets you plot points and ranges for temp and mood, genre, decade, and to indicate whether you want it to return hits or not. Don't miss the ability to dive deep into any genre. Clicking any box expands it into another grid.ains of my brief stint as a boyscout as well. So, start turning your volume, click the play button and lets the unpredictable sounds of music heal your soul!
These days Graphic Novels are selling like hot-cakes! I think I'm going to have early addiction to it because of "somebody" ahem! You know who you are! This one called "Crying Freeman" just came out from Dark Horse (Graphic Novel pwerhouse) and David ,Thanks for "borrowing" it to me, you wont get it back I promise...great artist and elements which makes it pretty interesting biotch!
Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind BUFFY and Angel is up to some SunnyDale Action again! I miss Buffy a hell lot because I was a Buffy-whore back in high skool, everything ends I'm afraid but Whedon still continues this cycle that will keep Buffy fans like me going after all these years.
Fifi I know you're a huge fan of Buffy's and some comical project that they're planning would be sure to satisfy us I hope...re-runs of episodes on some channel would be fun too, I hope you're spoiling yourself with the DVD's. While I'd much rather have a live-action version of the continuing tale (WITH all the original actors), I realize that that can't happen. This comic series sounds like a pretty good compromise to me. From what I understand, there will a lot of surprising developments introduced in the storyline ... and beloved characters will be brought back. I am very excited to find out how things have been going since ... well, Sunnydale imploded. I heart BUFFY, SPIKE, AND boo boo XANDER foreva!
It was great to meet you yesterday, and I know that it's stilla short while but means a lot! I can't believe you David Lim! You expressed anxiety about not just whether Columbia was right for you, but if NYC was right for you, tsk tsk...shame on you and I can totally relate to that (even though I'm killing my ass here in da Burgh!)
Whenever I pass the Brooklyn Bridge and just step foot on Man' Island, I felt like my life was reaching this culturally-stagnant apex, and I was reallly looking for a more diverse and culturally rich next-phase-of-my-life, but then again I'm not in a position to transfer again, damn. For me, NYC happened to be the place, for you...well, that's a decision that you'll have to make. But I figured I would tell you the top 10 and crappy 10, and hopefully it will give you some perspective and bring you to tha dark side, you piece of pig.Let's start with the crappy first, and get it out of the way!OH-and these are in no particular order.
NYC CRAPPY 10: 1. Being surrounded by huge buildings and having to actively seek out the sunset. 2. Running and bumping into people all the time without so much as an excuse me (and after a while you find yourself not apologizing for your oafish behavior either). 3. Having to fork out 100-200 bucks for an air-conditioner, so that you can sleep at night during the month of August. 4. Having to take colder showers at night and position multiple fans on yourself at all times if you were too cheap, like me, to do #3. 5. Everytime you go out, you drop 20 bucks (whether you mean to or not). My old roommate called them "fun-tickets". 6. Having to deal with trains that don't run 100% perfectly when you depend on them, and you're late to an exam. 7. Having to invest in "winter clothes" (highly recommend a long puffy down coat or a cash/wool blend long trench, expect to drop in the neighborhood of 2/3-hund-o if you're a lady, don't know about guy's pricing). 8. Not being able to "escape it" as easily as you may want to. 9. Paying a stomach-unsettling amount of rent. 10. Adjusting to being far, far, far away from your family and friends.
Okay, now on to the reasons that make me proud to go home and brag to my friends about living in NYC before!!!
TOP 10 REASONS TO MOVE TO NYC THIS MAY: 1. Running or walking around the Jackie Onasis Reservior in Central Park at either sunrise or sunset-spectacular! 2. Going to Washington Squrare Park (down by NYU) and people watching on a Saturday (people actuallly push their dogs around in strollers). 3. Going to Coney Island, riding the Cyclone, and trying not to throw up your Nathan's hotdog. 4. Going out in the East Village/Lower East Side, staying out until 4 am, and then eating the best damn Falafel of your entire existance! 5. The Rub dance party that happens the first Saturday of every month at a venue in Park Slope, Brooklyn called Southpaw (I'm going tonight...so freakin' excited!)! 6. The day when someone asks you directions and you can actually help them! 7. Having access to pretty much anything 24 hours a day. 8. Not contributing to global warming (well as much) by riding public transportation. 9. Having access to the best music scene in the country (that's right Austin, TX and San Francisco and LA, what up now?!?). 10. okay...so one school related thing, but it's still NYC-centric, having access to seeing the coolest stuff ever because you'll be doing rotations in one of the best hospital systems in the nation, you fool. I can't get into the details because of patient-confidentiality, but trust me, some of you aren't even going to believe some of the crazy medical cases you're about to see! Only in New York City, you can't make this stuff up! I'm heading there again April 14, and you'll see what I mean!
David Beckham's recent injury didn't stop him from shopping in Madrid yesterday. He was captured visiting Gucci with a stylish stick yesterday, and I'm not talking about the cane. And, Vic, tsk tsk....ahme did I spot somethin' that's a bit too whatcha'ma call it tight?
Here's whats happening...O.K this sounds pretty stupid but all of the things I'm going through this week has something to do with death and maybe oxymoron to think about it even though I'm alive but its an interesting phase to discuss, especially when you're looking at it in so many perspectives.
We'd talked about "End Of Life Care": Nursing Fundamentals was interesting, oooh wait till the Mid-Term comes and I'll be in my grave with a bunch of lilies...
My pal from Brooklyn, NY, Russell's doggie died...a terrier! awww he's an old-bag of fun!
Death in Literature, wtf! I mean I'm taking Child's Lit but does the character of the story have to die...Bridge to Terabithia was a conversial segmentation of realism, but death at young?
Oh, and Camay sent me interesting photos when she was out in Manhattan today, and boy it was all depressing!It was close to 60° in New York this weekend. Nice enough to take a walk in Central Park. The skies were blue, the ponds were thawing, and the pigeons were out in force. Well, most of the pigeons. A dead pigeon with winter coming at a stop, oh please.
Finally, me I'm dead now so rest in peace because the assignments and tests is definitely a torture, would some one just euthanize me now?
Here's one of my favourite's ...don't know what it is but I'll be happy to drool all over it, no pun intended!
This may come as a shock to anyone under 30, but feminism once had the power to provoke (and no, we're not talking about those heady days when The Vagina Monologues first appeared on the scene). Such is the territory covered by Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution, which spans the years 1965–1980 and opens Sunday at L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art. "The name Wack! is meant to be a heavy-hitting, vaguely sexual term," says curator Connie Butler. "All of this art in some way celebrates the body." Especially, we might add, the lower half.The show opens with Polish sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz's Abakan Red, a giant red web that's a less-than-subtle nod to a woman's nether region, while British performer Cosey Fanni Tutti's snapshots graphically document her career as a stripper and porn star. In other words, consider this exhibition the art world equivalent of a romantic comedy in which Cameron Diaz gets naked—there's something for you and your girlfriend. P.S And yes, the reason why feminism get me high because I had to write a paper about Ramona Quimby, Age 8....clearly Beverly Cleary is promoting feminism! Wish I'd been to those vagina monologues though, but having a penis is fine with me, period!
Here is an artsy friend of mine from Brooklyn, NY who just recently graduated from Parsons, bravo Camay, I'll see u back in Vestal sooooon babe! You're such a doll...so I'll give some "ahem" credit and publicity to ur masterpieces. Click here to view her work whose been recently featured on Beautiful Decay.
