Song of the Day
Last week we went and saw the Thermals who were awesome as per uze. They were so good that they almost got the massive security guard who looks like Suge Knight to stagedive. Pretty sure he realized he would’ve instantly crushed the 130 lb doofuses in the crowd.
Anyway, the opener was this band, Hop Along, who admittedly, we’d never heard of. But just because we’ve never heard of something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist which is why we don’t look up anything on WebMD. The band’s standout trait is their singer’s voice. She kinda sounds like if Cat Power had a kid sister. Kitten Power. WE ARE TRADEMARKING THAT SHIT RIGHT NOW ALL RIGHTS BELONG TO US DON’T EVEN TRY US WE HAVE A LAWYER.
Anyway, we talked to her for a little bit afterwards and just about the only thing she’s better at than singing is telling bad jokes. She even brought the interrupting starfish out of joke retirement. Don’t know it? By all means, go up and ask her.
Then we asked if she was working on anything in the future and she mentioned that she had a new single out TODAY and this is it. What are the odds? That’d be like if you found out about a new band you really like and then asked when they had new music out and they said next week. We realize that’s not much of a comparison but we’ve been numbed by this band’s anti-jokes that it was the best we could do.
Infinitely proud of Philly and the people in it that I’m lucky enough to be part of a community with
So I’m just starting a 30 day nutrition challenge at my gym. Since there seems to be some minor interest in fitness/nutrition from some of my tumblr readers, I thought I would post the link here.
Mostly, it’ll just be a pretty tedious food log with some reflections, so if that isn’t interesting to you, don’t click the link! Also, this is relatively compulsive food logging and that could be triggery to some folks, so please keep that in mind.
The general idea is that by logging our food daily, we will be more mindful of what we eat and how it makes us feel. My roommates are doing this with me, and Mikey too since he goes to my Crossfit gym. We’re focusing on training our bodies to be fat burners rather than carb burners. So we’re eating high protein, high-ish (good) fats, and moderate to low carbs. We’re avoiding sugars, gluten, processed food, bad oils, and things that are hard on digestion (like legumes, too much soy). We’re all vegetarian so we’re doing it that way.
Mostly we’re trying to give our body nutritious, whole foods, exclusively and consciously. This is an experiment in seeing how good our bodies can feel, and how to form healthy habits and good time management when it comes to cooking and not eating on the fly all the time because we’re busy people.
Aiming to have a non sluggish summer!
Anonymous asked: Where did you get your backpack from?
I got it from the army navy surplus store at 13 and chestnut, called I. Goldberg.
However, I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s cheap for a reason (15 bucks). The straps are annoying to buckle and unbuckle, and when you put anything in your bag more than just a notebook, the straps loosen themselves from the weight so it isn’t shut very well. They don’t stay tight ever.
The plus size is that it fits a drawing pad and records. But it’s not worth the hassle of it never staying closed. I’m about to start shopping around for a new one of higher quality, made in the u.s.of a. because I’m over supporting terrible working conditions to save myself some money.
For the past week my nanny baby has been humming a tune that I assumed he just made up.
Today I realized he’s actually been humming his favorite song, Iron Man by Black Sabbath.
