Pi Day + Ty Segall

Today was my favourite day of the year - Pi Day. The day we take time out of our busy lives to recognize everyone's favourite irrational number. I honestly celebrate this holiday, along side Robert Burns Day and Mole Day (celebrating Avogadro's number). I am a huge nerd for esoteric holidays.

We had pizza pie, pecan pie and pumpkin pie while we watched Dirty Dancing. It was a dream come true. I'd go as far as saying it topped Pi Day 2 years ago where I drank mimosas and played wii with Cut Off Your Hands on a sunny 65 degree day. That year I baked apple pie, bought a cherry pie and Maria made the best key lime pie I've ever had.

Tonight I learned a very important lesson - don't eat as much as humanly possible then go see Ty Segall and try to dance.

totally weird night

Last night started out perfectly comfortable - reminiscent of last spring for sure. But then around midnight (maybe closer to 1) shit got weird. I was over at my friends' house, my responsible adult friends who own their home and can afford cable, and we turned on the tv to discover shocking footage of Japan moments after it was devastated by a record breaking earthquake.

I immediately got on facebook to see if everyone I knew in Tokyo was ok and it seemed that the city wasn't affected too much. However, the non-stop coverage of MSNBC showed live (or near live) helicopter footage of the tsunami wave plowing over Sendai. We watched in absolute horror as unsuspecting cars drove towards the rushing water and others scrambled to out run it. It was brutal.

The fun of an all ages Marnie Stern show and the fashionable people watching of goth Brits Esben and the Witch seem so trivial now; however, at the time, it was really awesome. So here are some photos of my night.

an unexpected turn for then night: watching one teenager put Marnie Stern's guitar pick in the butt of another teenager
Their faces are priceless

vain attempts to crowd surf during the last song - love that all ages spirit!

CIty Center

I've been lucky enough to play a couple shows with City Center during my short lived flirtation with music - but asides from totally loving this band I fucking love these dudes. This music video is making me long for summer so much it hurts.

Spring Cleaning

Everything's different.
I've always hated the layout of this blog, especially the black background but I was too lazy to change it. Someone hated the name of the blog - so that's gone too.
Welcome to my field notes: I promise they will be as equally mundane as my documentation of the scene.
ps-Joe I stole the top photo off your flickr. Thanks!
