Guster live

29 03 2015

Finally got the chance to watch them live tonight.

So. Good.

Though it was annoying when a random drunk kid asked if he could be onstage to drink their whisky. Which he did, much to the band’s confusion and perplexity. And despite the kid buying a replacement drink for the one he gulped down in the back as Guster played a song, I still thought it was rude.

But Guster was awesome! Made me love all their music all over again.

Totally digging Keira Knightley singing. Way better than the shrillness that is Adam Levine.

Also, this song should have won the Oscar for Best Song. Hands down.

Put me to sleep

I should just watch Last Year at Marienbad if I can’t fall asleep. That thing got me drowsy so quickly!

It’s finally here!

I should have a picture of it, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, so you’ll all just have to believe me. The latest copy of Ricepaper is out now, featuring a personal essay I wrote titled “Cold War”! Yay! Now the world will finally know how awful sexual racism is. Grr argh.

But in the meantime, yay!

I should be playing with my cat

Instead of being in front of my laptop screen. Ok.

The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen

24 03 2015

I didn’t expect this book to be so sad, but it was. It was almost painfully sad at times, even by my depressing standards. But I’m glad that it touched on a lot of dark terrain that isn’t really thought of as belonging to YA, and I think this is a really good example of how mature YA literature can be. (I have a friend who scoffed at The Hunger Games because he believed as a YA novel, it couldn’t possibly present a true dystopia accurately or have anything meaningful to say about dystopias since, as we all know, all YA lit ends with problems neatly being solved and everyone gets along again.)

Anyway, I’d recommend this one. Susin Nielsen (a Canadian!) wrote it, and I had the chance to watch a talk with her and speak to her afterwards. I didn’t expect her to be so funny and self-deprecating!

Also, here is me undergoing Clothes Therapy (which works pretty well, I must say). And yes, you must tuck your hoodie under your sweatpants. How else are you going to look stylish while your skin heals?

Watched Music and Lyrics last night and haven’t gotten this song out of my head. And now it’s in all three of yours!
