A candle flickered at my feet…

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 :).

Oh yeah, someone bugged me about pics I promised to post…

    Nice pics, James looks like a stud wearing shades.
    AAC format looks interesting, too bad I don’t have a Mac around to try it out. I also think 99 cents is a little too much for lossy-compressed audio, but I guess we’ll see if his business model works or not.

      Hi Julia,
      Yeah the Spring Break pics are from all down the coast on Route 1. We drove down to San Luis Obispo and stopped a bunch of times along the way. The scenery is just gorgeous… we could have stopped every hundred yards.

      Ah…. California. :)
