Friday Free-for-All x3

25 08 2007

so I haven’t done one of these in 3 weeks… primarily because this, this and this were all on my to-do list. But its all culminating on Sunday – our big fall push at Elevation Church… be there – its going to be off the hizzy. as in chizzy. as in chain. don’t look at me – i didn’t make that up. But the business is beginning to subside, so I figured it was time for a return to my useless collection of current interests. the envelopes please…

Best New Shoes With Accessory Website:

This one goes to the new Nike vintage shoes that recently came out, and the multimedia lovefest that is their website – videos, photos, t shirt iron-ons, the whole nine. I want to succeed like this one day – and I also want some of those shoes… super sweet. Slight aside: I think I’m beginning to like shoes a little – I recently got a new pair of the Simple Green SnoTire shoes for my birthday – fan-friggin-tastic. Moving on…

Primary Reasoning Behind My Sudden and Needed Urge to Visit Iceland:

Sigur Ros, that uber-amazing underwater Radiohead music band, is releasing a documentary type thing called Heima about their recent tour of their homeland Iceland. Click here to watch the trailer. Iceland obviously is one of those ironic nicknames like calling the bald guy Curly or the fat guy Tiny, because from the footage in the trailer, it looks like a painfully gorgeous place. I don’t know why I haven’t been yet – it looks like those places you dream about – where its always 63 degrees and clear, just after dusk. Words cannot describe. If the trailer leaves you wanting more, check out their video for Glosoli…

My Short List of Broken Electronics:
1. My iPod – Not my new one, but my old faithful 20GB U2 iPod from three years ago. No music shows up anymore when you turn it on – just a graphic of a sad iPod. That can’t be good.
2. The CD player in my car – It almost ate my Jack’s Mannequin guilty pleasure CD Clair bought me for my birthday. We shared a few words and he gave it back. But now he doesn’t want to hear anything about playing my jams. Its the radio sir, or nothing. Your choice.
3. My Car Cell Phone Charger – It never really was super great since it never clipped in to securely hold in place, but now its bent and I have to hold my phone at a 45 degree angle to charge it in the car. Loads – we’re talking loads – of fun.

Graphic Designer Who is Better Than Me of the Week:
Dave Werner. A friggin talent. Design, theory, music, you name it – he’s good.

Best Headline of the Month:

Another Reason Why I Will Do Everything in My Power to Never Leave South Carolina:

South Carolina Inmate Hits Michael Vick With ‘$63,000,000,000 Billion Dollar’ Lawsuit Alleging Al Qaeda Ties – you can’t make this crap up.

5 CDs That I Currently Want But Don’t Currently Have:

Rilo Kiley – Under the Blacklight
The National – Boxer
The New Pornographers – Challengers
Junior Senior – Hey Hey My My Yo Yo
Rocky Votolato – The Brag and Cuss

Last Birthday Gift I Received, Officially Ending My Birthday Season:
a mix CD from Elizabeth King – I won’t judge a book by its cover, since this cover was a handwritten track list (with two song titles missing from their artists…) on spiral notebook paper wih the notebook paper fuzz still attached. I’m not complaining though – I’m just glad I finally got it. I’ll write a review of this one, since I told her I would.
