I’m at the Surrey campus right now (3 hour break). My iPod has been on shuffle lately and I can’t say that it plays me good songs 100%, but it has allowed me to discover the song “Talons” by Bloc Party and it’s pretty rockin’. I haven’t really given the album a good listen, but I think I will on my skytrain/bus ride home later.
There are two things that I don’t understand.
1. How come so many people don’t know how to take the bus? When you have a wet umbrella, you wrap it up and hold it low. You don’t loop it on your wrist and use that same hand to hold a pole next to someone’s head. And you don’t put the umbrella on empty seats! Seriously.
2. People in my Cultural Production of Popular Music class seem very snobby. It’s due to the fact that they are into the Indie bands and think that anyone else who aren’t is not knowledgeable. What’s up with that? Go Chris Brown.
Onto other stuff. I want an Obama t-shirt. I figured it would be a good purchase for historical reasons even though I’m not American. Urban Outfitters has a grey one that looks pretty sweet, but I also know that the store in Vancouver might not carry it. I also want to purchase the Obama book from Chapters. The novel looks really interesting and I want to read it. I wish we had some sort of history-changing event occuring in Canada.
I’ll leave on an emo note. I miss you! My lameness doesn’t get used up as much. I want to message you all the time. I want to say congratulations and that I hope you like this new place because it sounds pretty rad. OK BYE.
I’m eating a sponge cake by myself in the library at the Burnaby campus right now. It’s kind of awkward because there’s a couple in the stall next to me who are making out. WTF?! Good thing I have my iPod on and rockin’ away to Yellowcard, Paper Walls. This album rocks, but I must say that Ocean Avenue was by far the greater album. Lights and Sounds was ok, but not too special. I should really be catching up on my readings because I am practically a million years behind. However, I find that playing around with my new blog site more fun, but for some reason, none of the new themes I apply are showing up on this laptop. Danny checked it for me on his computer at home and it shows up. How weird.
So it seems like I’ve been totally missing out on all the action of new blogs. Everyone seems to have a second one stashed away and I never knew! I also can’t seem to comment on some of the other sites because they use a site which I have not signed up for. Bummers. I like commenting. If I could in fact comment, please tell me how! OK BYE. I am hungry and will go hunt for some food to eat before class starts in 2 hours.
I have a lot going on inside my head right now, but before I begin my thread of random, angry and (most often) emo blogs, this first one will be a thanks to my friend Matt for giving me a fresh start on this new site. Goodbye Xanga. It was great while it lasted, but the advertisements were simply too much for me.
Until I get caught up with school and play around with this site some more to get it fully up and running, this is all that I have to say. Except maybe one more, and that is the Canucks are playing extremely shitty lately which makes me rather sad. However, I’ve been pretty sad to begin with anyways for the past month because I feel as if I lost a best friend, so maybe that is why I am sad and not actually sad that the Canucks are losing. But then again, I can say with much confidence that if I were to have this friend back, then I would most definitely be sad about the Canucks losing because I love them and I do not jump on and off the bandwagon. OK BYE. Thanks (again) Matt!
