Listen to This

Monday, February 21st, 2011

I’m really into this song. Except the part where he says:

“Follow me, follow me I’m the leader

And when I park cars I don’t pay for the meter.”

You should always pay for the meter, kids.

I got up at 4am and then I got in a cab and I was like TAKE ME TO CHICAGO! And he was like I can take you to the airport and I was like ok that’s fine do you take cards? And then I got a window seat in the THIRD ROW which does wonders for my flight panic attacks because I pretend that I am in a room that shakes a little bit instead of a metal tube that is not on the ground and then I fell asleep and then I woke up and it was 7:35am in Chicago and Ma Sweet picked me up and then we came home and she fed me cappucinos and eggs and sarahsweet gave me presents and then they both went to work and now i don’t know what to do with myself so I made a to-do list of things to do, like Go see the Uboat at the Museum of Science and Industry, eat biscotti, update business card. Now I am going to drink some tea, eat a biscotto, and take some public transportation to go shopping for party dresses with sarahsweet. Vacation is easy. Here’s a song. My favorite is the aggressive snapping at 1:06.

Oh well is right.

Sometimes

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

when it is late and I am a graduate student in the undergraduate student library and I can’t focus from all the undergraduate laughter and blackberrying and facebooking and fun-having, I listen to this, and pretend that I am an 8 year old Peter Holzaweorihwhpel and that my babysitter locked me outside of the house during a terrifying thunderstorm one night by accident and that 20 years later only a steady stream of sailing, sunshine, and a career in climate change can help alleviate the fear of rain, thunder, and babysitters cracking lightening bolts.  Then I think, this isn’t so bad.  The action starts at 00:05:45.[audio:http://www.jockandbuttons.com/alex/wp-content/audio/Thunderstorm.mp3]

Wakey!Wakey!

Here is a song of the day.  Sometimes I listen to this when it is late and I need to stay awake.  The good news is I like the song.  The bad news is I will be listening to it all night while I am designing my brochure for the new mixed-use mountain resort community in Whistler, BC.  Grad school is full of make-believe.

Vincent O’Brien Brussels Sprouts

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

I bought a bag of weeks days old brussel sprouts from the produce store across the street for a dollar because they were on the dollar rack along with a back of unrecognizable fruits.  Then I went up to the counter with my rotting sprouts and my two oranges and a bag of carrots and he said $3.25 and I said oh no I don’t have cash do you take the credit cards? and he said, don’t worry about it, just pay next time.  Has Jane Jacobs been here?

Here’s a song.  Peter do you get audio on your climate change blackberry?  Do you even own headphones?  Do you still read this?[audio:http://www.jockandbuttons.com/alex/wp-content/audio/Vincent%20OBrien.mp3]

I know.  It’s really serious.  But just pretend some guy is playing it ten feet below your feet and you’re wearing your fancy clothes.  Or stare at the photo below.
