R. E.

R. E. What does it stand for you ask? I will explain henceforth: earlier tonight I was studying in our quiet study room. To give you a mental picture its 10 ft by about 20-30 ft(I'm guessing, I could be way off), there's 3 tables in there and some windows. Anyway, over the years different groups of studying students have taken pains to carve messages into the ceiling. So I was studying, and looked up after reading a wearying piece of text to find the words "Romance Explosion" written on the ceiling. Cryptic, unusual. I thought I would share.

Happy V-day

So also on the topic of socks(see below), I have for you a wonderful music video full of sock puppet played music. A what? you say, how is this possible? Through the ingenious of Hungry Kids of Hungary that's how! By the way I am still in awe of that band name, quite creative. And lastly before I let you behold the magic, VHS tapes, this video incorporates VHS tapes (pretty sure you are hooked now if I didn't have you on the line before, time to reel you in).

I made a wholly great discovery. At some point either deliberately or not I seem to have hidden an extra stash of socks from myself. Yes, this discovery is quite great and clearly explains why I seem to be running out of socks at an accelerated rate previously.

That is all, just thought I'd share the good news.

Come What May

Its cold, you breath out. Your breath is like pure white smoke; stark against the increasing dark skies. A single tear rolls down your cheek; hands cold, gloveless, they ball up into fists. Eyes close for a few seconds...calm, calm...eyes open again, pupils focus themselves, a wolfish smile plays across your lips. You are ready.

So I think somewhat often I talk about things that are awesome. I like adventures and things you can do in an afternoon or long term plans that follow through or don't, or scavenger hunts. (I need to find a more focused direction in writing) Anyway, so this video from OK GO is awesome, they shot it all in one take, used a unvirsity's marching band and used people in disguises. It is great, and reinforces my belief in things that are awesome/fun can happen and be created/happen in an afternoon.

11th Dimension

Julian Casablancas of The Strokes has released a solo album somewhat recently. I really like this video and single from it, not sure if the rest of the album is as good, heck I don't even know if this song is that good but this is entertaining anyway.
