Some of my favorite search terms

May 6, 2009

I love that wordpress keeps track of what search terms led people to my site. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • i killed my boyfriend (5)
  • history oh the maces (4)
  • depressing bedroom (3)
  • ask for what happened in my house (3)

And my new favorite, just this week:

  • why is it so hard to punch people in dreams

Beautiful. How did YOU get here?


Quick Recap of Shows 4 – 7

May 6, 2009

I’ve been distracted and not posting. No one wants to hear about my colds nor my weird injuries, I’m sure, so I’ve just kept it to myself, using other, more appropriate venues for that kind of thing.

Sadly, in the meantime, I’ve gone to four shows and haven’t written a thing about them, so here’s a quick recap.

4th Show: Leslie and the Badgers, Band of Annuals, Or, the Whale at the Hotel Utah Saloon February 11th: I wanted to write a whole page about how much I liked Leslie and the Badgers. They are awesome and you should see them. Band of Annuals were good, but not what I was in the mood for. I couldn’t make it through Or, the Whale’s set, because I was dead on my feet, not because they weren’t good. In fact, I’d like to see them again (maybe earlier? or not on a school night? please?)
5th Show: Zappa Plays Zappa at El Rio Theater in Santa Cruz on March 4th: It was like seeing my childhood played live. It was wonderful going to a show with my sister and my father, who almost never goes out. I felt a little young and a lot female. The band was tight and amazing, and there’s not a bad seat in El Rio, seriously.
6th Show: Elvis Perkins in Deerland at Cafe du Nord on April 11th: Another late show that I couldn’t get through. I really enjoyed the music, though I probably would have liked even more had I been sitting down. Jenn and I wondered when we got so old.
7th Show: Spanish Harlem Orchestra at Roccopulco Supper Club on March 24th: This was the first time I had gone salsa dancing in public, and while terrified, I also had a really good time. There are some terrific dancers in SF; I am not (yet) one of them, though after this I feel compelled to become a better one. Salsa music is amazing live, and these are the guys to hear do it.

So what’s coming up? Nothing, so far! That’ll have to change soon. Who should we see next?
