Breakfast of Champions! Lunchtime Edition!


Here is the first radio show of the semester!!!! I missed the first half because I was dying, but I made it for the second half. Besides a couple of minor technical issues regarding backing music, it went really well. We managed to get one of the 60 slots available to the over 200 applicants, so that was lucky. And because I didn't get my Paul Simon show (regardless of the "strong application" they said I had) there will be much of him and covers of him and references to him, etc. Do enjoy!

a lack of posting here.

Sorry about my lack of posting. I've been very very veeeeerrrry busy between communications classes, European dictatorships, learning German, and feeding the masses of Puget Sound. Here are a few photos from the 2 days I spent at Bumbershoot over labor day weekend. On Saturday, I bought a ticket and got to see the Decemberists (so great), Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (blew my mind!), and Bob Dylan (somewhat disappointing.) I also spent QUITE a bit of time at Flatstock, the music poster show. I only bought one poster, but it is one I considered buying last year, decided not to, and then regretted for the whole year. So now it is sticky-tacked to my wall and looking WONDERFUL. On Sunday I volunteered in order to get free admission. We walked around handing out sheets about taking the Bumbershoot survey and giving away free Bumbershoot patches and pins. It was super fun. We got to hear tons of bands as we walked around and we got to meet lots of people. We then took Margaret to see Motion City Soundtrack, which isn't one of my favorites, but who she loves. It was pretty darn fun. After that, we headed home early, and basically crashed upon our return. I hit the ground running and worked at 8:30 on Monday morning, and haven't stopped since. I'm now ill, and the cold is really not sparing me a lot of kindness. I'll try to be more fervent about my posting, but no guarantees. I hope everyone is having a good September. Tschüss!
