Went to the White Stripes show tonight at the Warfield. The opening band, Whirlwind Heat, was absolutely terrible. The Stripes didn’t quite justify the $38 (!!) or whatever I had shelled out for the show, but it was solid nonetheless. I had to skip dinner because my Decal class went until 7 and I had to take the 7:05 F bus, so instead I had two doughnuts, seven cookies and then a $2 7-11 burrito. Yummy.
What I didn’t mention in my previous post is that while I did break a drumstick, that forced me to switch to guitar, and I wrote the bulk of a new song. Minus lyrics, of course, but still good :).
(from Alex) Total crap quote:
“It’s not free, but it’s 99 cents a song, pretty doggone close,” Apple chief executive Steve Jobs said [of Apple’s new online music initiative].
And, right, gas is not free, but at $2/gallon, it’s pretty doggone close. I’m sure commuters everywhere would agree.
I’m supposed to give half a lecture tomorrow morning (prof is out of town) in addition to my usual discussion section duties, but I am procrastinating like crazy trying to avoid preparing for it. Hence, second LJ entry in one day :).
