Scrubs [Sep. 9th, 2009|06:08 pm]

Heres a thing I find concerning. To my understanding the purpose of medical scrubs was to keep germs and bacteria external to a hospital outside of the hospital, and keep the same internal to the hospital inside the hospital. So when you are on the bus which goes by a hospital, and you see all of these nurses get on wearing their medical scrubs.. don't you wonder what's the purpose of them wearing them, if they are going to just wearing them on the bus?

Folk Music [Sep. 7th, 2009|12:59 pm]

[music |Conor Oberst - Milk Thistle]

An odd change which has happened recently, is I have found myself listening to a lot more Folk Music than I used. I mean before I definitely liked some acoustic Rock, like Elliott Smith, and Jeff Buckley. But I don't think those really count as folk.

I'm not quit sure where it started. I think the point when folk music started to really creep into my mind was when I listened to Neutral Milk Hotel's "In an Aeroplane Over the Sea" and Dallas Green's Album "Sometimes". It's not like I have completely stopped listening to metal, but I have found I also like Folk.

The thought of it got pushed significantly along after I went to the "Folk Fest" in Vancouver, and I heard a number of artists which I really liked including the awesome Dan Mangan. Since then I have been listening to more of Conor Oberst and M. Ward , because they are pretty good too.

Maybe I'm just old now.

The Price of the Kindle is now 299, which is actually a price I am willing to pay for the technology. I am really seriously considering buying it in the future. i have reservations, because Amazon has done some irritating things in the past with the format. However, I do like hte idea of being able to carry around like a bunch of magazines and books in a device of that size.

Dan Mangan [Jul. 20th, 2009|11:32 am]

It is rather amusing the way I discovered this Artist. I was actually browsing through the merchandise tent at the Vancouver Folk Festival when I spotted the cover for his cd. I didn’t actually know a lot of the artists who were present for the show, and I didn’t really want to buy a Rock Plaza Central, or Iron & Wine cd. Looking over the EP at 8 dollars Canadian I debated whether I should buy the cd or not. After sometime of considering I made the decision to actually buy the EP.
Upon listening to the first song, in which the chorus sings “Robots need love too”, I couldn’t help but be drawn to the artist. Often the current trend for this form of art tends to lead towards terms like “freak folk” or “psychedelic folk” or some other sort of term which sounds hip, yet annoying at the same time. Dan Mangan can be described as fairly honest music, he doesn’t climb too high on his soap box, and addresses the themes of the every man; with a lyrical quality that most artists only wish they could emulate.

If you are looking for an honest cd which you can relate to, and be entertain by, these elements are amply present within the work of Mr. Mangan. Dan has a new CD coming out in the month of August, I am eagerly looking forward to see what this up and coming Canadian artist has in store for us next, in the dialogue which is his work.

Detroit Mercy Law School [Jul. 15th, 2009|10:50 am]

I hate my Law School. There is maybe a month untill classes start, and they still haven't given us registration dates for the next semester of classes. This school's administration is completely absurd.When I asked the registrar what date the registration would be, they gave me attitude about wanting to know this simple question. They hand us our exam rooms often the day of the exam, and it took them 3 months to get us Student Cards (a process where which takes 10 minutes to do in almost every other school on the face of the planet). So, people ask me, what would I say to someone considering going to UDM?

NPR [Jul. 12th, 2009|10:35 am]

So, lately I have been listening to NPR. For those who don't know NPR is national public radio, it produces and distributes news and cultural programming. Individual public radio stations are not required to broadcast all NPR programs that are produced. Most public radio stations broadcast a mixture of NPR programs, content from rival providers American Public Media and Public Radio International, and locally produced programs. NPR's flagships are two drive time news broadcasts, Morning Edition and the afternoon All Things Considered; both are carried by most NPR member stations.

To be honest, lately I have found that most radio statio DJ's have this quality to their voice which I find grating. It just annoys me. I like NPR because it doesn't have that quality, and I feel like I am learning things. I need to find what the NPR station is in Detroit.

Pet Peeve [Jun. 16th, 2009|11:08 am]

Here is a pet peeve I have:

When I am in a conversation with someone, and I am like "Yea, I got " *such and such thing*, and they look at me and saw "awwwe .. lucky". It irritates me because it is rarely said for things which actually have some element of luck to it, like "I won this concert". It is most often things I have worked my ass off to get, and now they are acting like I got it because it just fell out of the sky into my lap. It annoys me.

Delirium tremens [Jun. 7th, 2009|04:21 pm]

Delirium Tremens was named as "Best Beer in the World" in 1998 at the World Beer Championships in Chicago, Illinois, USA.Stuart Kallen gives it the number one spot in his The 50 Greatest Beers in the World.

Delirium tremens is Latin for "trembling madness", commonly nicknamed "the DTs", indicating a violent sickness induced by withdrawal after alcohol abuse.

The color was interesting, bt it didn't really pour with a lot of head. I liked the flavour which I got from it. The beer was actually pretty good. It had a sort of sweet taste, and was lightly fruity but not too much.

Tree, Lesile and I split a bottle, it was 11 bucks.

I would say it was like an A- beer.
