We Fly High

Here I am. 2 hours and some change before my flight is scheduled to take off, BORED out of my mind. Unlike the Detroit airport, Logan does not have a psychedellic water fountain feature to entertain its anxious customers. Peep the picture to the left. I’ve sat in front of that fountain for MAD hours … Continue reading

Welcome To Heartbreak

I just finished reading the Kanye cover story from The Fader and I thought I’d throw my initial reactions and undeveloped thoughts out here in cyberspace. To begin, I think Yeezy’s first speech at the American Music Awards on Sunday night nicely captures the spirit of the article: he wants to be Elvis. So, let’s … Continue reading

If I Were A Boy

VS. I don’t know about y’all but when I first saw Beyonce’s new video for “If I Were A Boy” I thought SWAGGER JACKER! Are you serious? How was she even allowed to record that song nevermind release a video with an almost identical concept (except it’s far more dramatic than Ciara’s version and less … Continue reading

You’re The One

Who doesn’t love SWV? No matter what year it is, these sisters with voices stay on heavy rotation in my ipod. Austin recently posted “You’re The One” on facebook and ever since then I’ve been listening to SWV imeem playlists on repeat (they make for the perfect lazy Sunday soundtrack, highly recommended). I’m currently rocking … Continue reading

Iced Coffee Addict

Is it just me or is anyone else concerned with their recently acquired addiction to caffeine specifically in the form of Iced Coffee??? Ever since graduating Wesleyan, I’ve formed the destructive habit of grabbing an Iced Coffee to jump start the day without even thinking about whether I even want one? My brain simply implies … Continue reading

The Obscure Moon: Synecdoche, New York

***Do not read this blog entry if you have yet to see Synecdoche, New York, there are mild spoilers.*** Charlie Kaufman’s directorial debut Synecdoche, New York is as clever and complex as its title. Admittedly, I knew absolutely nothing about the film before seeing it 3 hours ago in Berkeley after spending a lovely Sunday cafe hopping … Continue reading

Love

We’re dancing free but we’re stuck here underground And everybody trying to figure they way out Hey Hey Hey, all we ever wanted to say Was chased erased and then thrown away And day to day we live in a daze We march all around til’ the sun goes down night children Broken dreams, no … Continue reading

McCain: The Greatest Force of Douchebaggery

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I would say that’s a fair summary of tonight’s boring, awkward and awkwardly repetitive debate. You can imagine how easy it was to create an image far more interesting than the event itself. I took the liberty of adding costumes to the otherwise terrified participants (anyone else struck by … Continue reading

CR10: Breaking The Chains

I woke up with a pounding migraine to the latest news story that the House of Representatives voted down the $700 BIllion Bailout Plan. I’m not sure what to make of it (shocking) and my headache is preventing me from thinking clearly so bear with me. I’m sure I’ll hit y’all with some rant later … Continue reading

An Open Letter to Annemarie Bean

“Annemarie Bean, who goes by Anna and is a distant, poorer cousin of the family that owns the L.L. Bean clothing business, is the kind of professor who draws students to small New England liberal-arts colleges like Wesleyan. She is funny, enthusiastic, devoted to her students and passionate about what she teaches. Her subject areas are … Continue reading
