Today [livejournal.com profile] typo1138, Chana and I went to the SoHo Apple Store for a Doctor Who Meet n' Greet thing. We got there VERY early so we went over to Rice to Riches (where I got to introduce [livejournal.com profile] typo1138 to the wonders of trendy rice pudding that is overpriced so we only get it once a year) and then looked around at other stores nearby. We eventually made our way back to the store to find that many fans had already staked out a spot in the theater area during a GarageBand demo. Even though we weren't there for the demo specifically it was very interesting and potentially useful. Anyway, we got adequate seats and were able to chat with people while we waited.
And the Q&A )

Two things.

1) Folk Fest was amazing!!! I had a fabulous time (though I probably should have been a bit more social and not read my book so much) and the line up was fantastic! We got to see Janis Ian (who tells stories wonderfully), Kimya Dawson (who is adorable and I wanted to hug her because she seems huggable...she also had people go up and sing with her, which was sweet), Judy Collins (who was great, obviously, but she sang a few Joni Mitchell songs without giving credit), Tom Paxton, Al Stewart, Great Big Sea (OMG SO MUCH LOVE!!!) and many more. There was this amazing guy who could play a ukulele hardcore! It's amazing how many different sounds he could make with a tiny four-stringed instrument. There were tons of other bands that I could gush over but I wasn't paying attention to WHO was playing so I can't give names until I check the schedule.

Anyway, it was a great time and I got to see a bunch of people from high school that I haven't seen in years. It was fun meeting the Jugglers with Allison (many were rather attractive) and watch Trout Fishing in America with Benny and his friends and acting like children. All in all, a great weekend. Next year I'm TOTALLY camping.

2) The commercial for the new chicken sandwiches at (enter name of appropriate fast food joint here) is just disturbing. That whole "Chicken so good you'll cheat on beef" thing would be fine if it weren't for the angry cow. It's like the cookie singing songs to that chick that I wrote about here except with a cow. And it's got that pseudo-bestiality vibe. Not quite there but there enough that I'm vaguely creeped out.

Twilight Review Vlog is pretty much done. I've cut the footage together and there are bits where it's mostly my footage and Melis's because we filmed the most but I've tried to balance it out. Anyway, I'm currently working on background music and I think I've done okay with that. I've pretty much put whatever I thought would work in the background and be fun. I'm currently stuck on what song to used for the credits (yes, I'm doing credits...mostly because I feel like it, I'll decide later if they stay). Also debating random video to put after said credits...and possibly outtakes (not that there really are any from people other than me). Anyway, the song. I need song suggestions. I'm thinking pop music. Or something really serious. I don't know. I'm leaning towards upbeat pop music. Suggestions?

The review is almost a half hour long...wow.

Laura K: "Men are terribly designed. God is a terrible designer!!"

Me: "Yeah, all those unnecessary lines. They need to keep it clean and simple!"

The following are things that have been said over the past week or so by my friends whilst talking about random stuff. They are funny in context but probably funnier without it. So here you go...

"When I see Steve Carrel the first thought I have is not 'I'd tap that!'"- Laura K

"Adrienne. You cannot write a paragraph on David Tennant's penis!"- Bethany B

I love my friends.

More may be added to this post as time goes on.

Had tons of fun tonight watcing Episode III with Bethany and Laura. There was tons of commentary about Obi Wan and Anakin's secret love affair and the stupid reasons why Anakin turns Darth Vader. How Palpatine came up with that name, we don't know. But we guess it was him thinking on his feet. Our imagined conversations about this went a little something like:
Palpatine: You shall now be called Darth...Elroy.
Anakin: Elroy?
Palpatine: Okay...Poindexter!
Anakin: Uh-uh.
Palpy: Englebert Humperdink?
Anakin: Nope.
Palpy: Francis...Dick...Jeff?
Anakin: No, no and definitely NOT.
Palpy: Darth Vader?
Anakin: Sounds cool.

Oh yeah, we're awesome. And then after watching that we had our Ewan McGregor musicfest (aka listening to the songs Adri has on her computer that are sung by Ewan). Now I'm sitting on the floor in Bethany's dorm and chillin'. Yuppers. We are so cool!

Wanna know what's awesome? Watching an impromptu breakdance-off.
See also: Randomly breaking into three different beats therefore creating a techno song.
See also: Club day. Which is tomorrow. W00t!
See also: Having only one class tomorrow and it being one you like.


Wanna know what's weird? The dream I had last night. It involved members of the band Crambo in what looked like clown costumes and porn-staches running around the set of the Ellen DeGeneres show (they may have also had bikes). Freakin' weird psyche.

I've been so lazy this week. Then again, it is the week before a brief vacation so what else would you expect? Almsot the entire family is going to be coming over for Thanksgiving. This is maybe my fourth Thanksgiving ever. We used to go to Canada then, and they don't have theirs on the same day as ours.

My computer just did that thing it does when an external harddrive or disk thinger is disconnected...I didn't have anything connected, though. Weird phantom disconnect!

On definitely positive notes:

OMFG!!!!! ALLISON,YOU GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is going to rock!!!! *jumps up and down in excitement*

ALSO OMFG!!! SARAH YOU GOT INTO COLLEGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYx20985490850498509485092384590843095834908509438509432850943859769834753!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOO PITT!!!!

And tomorrow is a half day. This week is good.
