Such a Card.

Cards. I love them. I love playing them at bars, in parks on porches - anywhere really. Which is why I am elated that my mother has found a very nifty deck for me complete with a travel case. No more rubber-banded stacks in my satchel! Huzzah! The case even has a nice little quote, "One good turn deserves another." Score.

Treasure Treasure, Listening Pleasure

I cannot tell you how excited I am for Treasure Island Music Festival. I just purchased a ticket to see Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem at the Fillmore in Denver on October 22nd, but now that I see the lineup for this festival, I am having buyer's remorse. Not only will I have to fly back to Denver for that show as I will be living in San Francisco by then, I would be able to see more great artists for half the price by going to Treasure Island. Oh my, decisions decisions.

Flick, Flick, Boom

New Orleans, part 1.

City, sticky as after-beignet fingers, where hand doesn’t glide across page but rather stick-lift-pull repeats along it. Where we slept amongst souls in a slave quarter down a long shadowed brick corridor, behind a wrought-iron gate – cursive inscribed Seven-Thirty Orleans. We were standing, statued, somewhere between Bourbon and Royalty – marveling at foreign whispers and history-stained sidewalks.  We came to be inspired, to understand how humidity expels creativity. To be like the writers we so admired and prose our way out of the post-collegiate mire.
