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.

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.

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.
