Fighting but currently losing the battle… I still say screw you cold!
This is what I am wearing today. It may be a bit disjointed considering all the neo citran and other medicines clouding my judgment. Does a grandma sweater go with a school girl skirt and a studded belt I am not so sure, but it is quite cozy. I just can’t bring myself to be in boring old pants and whatever even when I’m sick.
Thrifted Red Snood Scarf, Sweater, Skirt and Ankle Boots. Belt, Ebay. Suzy Shier Duster Sweater.
Something unrelated (of course) but exciting (for me) is while searching for todays youtube video I stumbled on piles of non-album Arcade Fire songs. They are a top five band for me, the power they put out at their live shows is incredible and incomprehensible. If you ever have the opportunity to see Arcade Fire in concert please take it, there is nothing like having these ten gifted Canadians singing their hearts out to you in unison. This is a great video to start on and this one too. They also inspired me to record my very first setlist back in 2007.

The show was my first outdoor concert since living in Vancouver and it really made me fall in love with this city and the people. At the end of the show the crowd all piles out to catch the buses. My friend and I decide to be ‘smart’ and find the stop right before the concert stop so that we wouldn’t have to wait in a lineup of hundreds of people… but we never found another stop so then we walked all the way back and of course ended up at the very end of that line. Maybe an hour after the concert ended the line is much shorter and this big city bus pulls up. Since there were only maybe 20 people more than the bus should carry the driver was getting us to squish in so that he could take everyone. I had never been so sardined like this before but the passengers were all so relaxed and fulfilled from the amazing show that we didn’t mind pushing into eachother at each break and turn of the bus. Hard to describe but it was magical, like I said I fell in love with this city.
As I ramble on, here’s a peek of an amazing girl I shot for The Eyeline.
