Day 2 – Music Midtown 2014 – Heading into the South

I’m not going to lie, the thought of going to Atlanta scared me. It was a new city, and new place, we would have to take public transportation, and I had heard there was a high level of crime there. I was nervous, but also exhausted. We had woken up on time, gotten our last… Continue reading Day 2 – Music Midtown 2014 – Heading into the South

Day 1 – Music Midtown 2014 – Taking a Lorde Detour

When Abby came up to me and said she was going to a music festival I was intrigued. I had never heard of Music Midtown but when I researched the lineup and saw Jack White’s name I knew I had to be there. Atlanta isn’t that far from Raleigh. We had it all planned, the… Continue reading Day 1 – Music Midtown 2014 – Taking a Lorde Detour

A Weekend of Music – Preparing for Music Midtown

I haven’t actually been to a music festival – I’ve been to day events with lots of bands – or Hopscotch which is in my home town and I get to sleep in my own bed at night, but I’ve never been to one where I will be out of my comfort zone and fighting… Continue reading A Weekend of Music – Preparing for Music Midtown

Gavin DeGraw and Matt Matt Nathanson at Red Hat

I did it again! It was a blah Monday – I wasn’t feeling too well but still on my way home I heard that cue to call on Pulse 102 – hit my preset and won Gavin Degraw/ Matt Nathanson tickets. I know – I’ve heard it from all of you “STOP WINNING STUFF ALREADY.”… Continue reading Gavin DeGraw and Matt Matt Nathanson at Red Hat

Concert-Going: Then and Now – How Re-Meeting My Favorite Band Changed Everything

  I think I went to my first concert when I was four. I remember it was a country show (since that’s what my parents deemed appropriate for a toddler although when you consider the alcohol consumption a rock show would have been a similar experience). From that moment it became acceptable for me to… Continue reading Concert-Going: Then and Now – How Re-Meeting My Favorite Band Changed Everything

What Happened To The Last Page? – The Dissatisfaction of “Acknowledgements/Epilogues and Book Samples”

I’ve been on a bit of a book craze recently. I’ve devoured three books in three weeks – and while some of you readers can tackle a book a day I think this is pretty good for my schedule. And as I’ve been on this craze I’ve had a pretty “cliche” theme to my reads.… Continue reading What Happened To The Last Page? – The Dissatisfaction of “Acknowledgements/Epilogues and Book Samples”

Movie Etiquette and the Sociological Implication of Finding the Perfect Seat

Last night, I received another free movie pass, to see an upcoming turn of the century drama called “Belle.”  When we arrived an hour early per usual at a tiny little theater no one really goes to, we were shocked to find that the line had extended from the door and into the entrance of… Continue reading Movie Etiquette and the Sociological Implication of Finding the Perfect Seat
