My Three Favorite Things of the Week:
I saw U2 perform live once in Chicago. We were in the possible worst seats ever: behind the stage in the upper rafters of the United Center (basically right below the flag of the retired Chicago Bulls players). Now the seat situation created added pressure for the show to overcome. And it was nothing short of amazing. I've never been so far away from a concert stage but yet felt so close (as corny as that sounds). I may have gotten dust in my eye when they played my fave (and little known gem), Ground Beneath Her Feet.
(On a another note. I can't be sure that it was at the U2 concert or not, but one night when leaving the United Center after a concert, my friend and I forgot where we parked. Like completely and utterly lost my car. We had a three hour drive ahead of us and were walking aimlessly trying to figure out where the car might be. We eventually talked one of the parking attendants into driving us around to find our car over an hour and a half later. It's a perfect small town farm kids go to the big city. If it weren't for the fact that..........I did the same exact thing and lost my car twice last year. So I can't blame the first incident on my youth or not having smart phones with apps and GPS pins. This seems to be a symptom of a larger problem.)
OK, I've gotten completely off topic here. U Talkin' U2 to Me features actor, Adam Scott, and Comedy Bang Bang host, Scott Aukerman, talkin' about U2 (among other things). I mean it was probably a no brainer that I would like this show. I like podcasts. I like U2. I like Scott Aukerman. I like Adam Scott. But I would think that even if I didn't, that I would like this show anyways.
This is another given. Again I'm a little biased both by my love of Pearl Jam, and the fact that I attended this very concert. But they just released 2013 Oakland bootleg is 3 Hours and 16 minutes, 3 disk set of awesomeness. The fact that I also got to hear one of my perennial fave Pearl Jam songs (and depending on when you talk to me, my favorite of all time), Smile, was the icing on the cake. (Now you might be like how does your favorite Pearl Jam song change? Like my fave PJ song right now is Of the Girl. I also have been known to rank Footsteps at the top. It really does vary between 5-8 songs depending on my mood, if Mercury is in Retrograde, etc.)
I am absolutely obsessed with the amazing artist designed prints and images showcasing America's national parks. And I'm absolutely bummed that there was a See America Project exhibit in San Francisco in January that I missed! I seriously have been going through the different states and obsessing over all the gorgeousness. I'm hoping that they put together like a postcard set for all my letter writing needs. And this is yet another reminder, that I have a lot of national parks to visit. I mean I've never been to the Rosie the Riveter national park. And it's like an hour away.
My big goal in March is I want to do one of the photo a day projects. However, I'm planning on attempting to do a photo a day with both my analogue 35mm Olympus Trip 35 and my digital iPhone of the same subject. I think it will be fun to compare. Plus I have several parties, trips, and cups of coffee in my future for March. All perfect times to try it out. We'll see if I'm able to remember to take one each day, but I'm looking forward to trying.
What are you obsessed with? Anyone else love the See America project? What are your favorites (Utah's designs are enough to make me want to book a flight to Salt Lake at this very minute). Any big plans for March? Anyone else getting excited for the new Veronica Mars movie? Thanks for stopping by.
