to go in album order, I'm really enjoying Debra right now. such a good song. 

 

thinking back to how I got Midnite Vultures at the Media Play (now defunct store) as my second Beck album after Guero. I would have wanted to buy Odelay next, I think, but I wanted got MV because I was at the mall with my friends and I could buy it without parental approval. figured the MV cover art would make it a harder sell. when I got home I listened to the CD it on my old boombox in my room, and I think I was like 'wtf have I just purchased here???' I think the album sleeve had the lyrics, because I feel like I remember reading along? (I have not brought out any of my CDs or their cases since I moved to the west coast, and I don't really plan to. I don't own any device that reads/plays CDs.)

 

this track of Debra on my computer is actually not from that original CD (rest of MV is) because my CD got damaged and it could not be ripped successfully.

 

for some reason I have all of Mellow Gold on my iTunes twice. also the first four tracks of Morning Phase.

what I'm thinking right now is why do I always end up with roommates who are buying animals without telling me ahead of time? last year I had a woman where the first time I realized she got a cat was when I heard her talking baby talk to it in the kitchen. she moved out a few months later and now the person who replaced her has got a dog - when I came inside this evening it ran out the door into the hall.

I feel like it is a big commitment when I get a houseplant, these people just turn up with animals.

San Francisco was a pretty good time! The first day I was there it was great weather, and I did a bus ride which included going through Golden Gate park, which was really impressive with all the different areas with great architecture and botantical design. Then my last day (my other tourist day), I walked up Telegraph Hill to Coit tower. It didn't end up being the ideal outing as it was too early to get inside, it was too foggy to see anything, and I also failed to find the Filbert steps. (ended up on greenwich steps which were pretty fun too.) Still I really appreciated that suggestion calamity, I don't think I'd have gone there at all without your mentioning it.

I also had a chance to ride one of the cable cars for actual transportation, and there wasn't as much of a queue as I'd observed on other days.

man I'm really sad about the Colbert Report ending. :(

I am not even sure if it is a good show anymore, but I have just been devotedly watching it for so long, it is hard to believe it will be gone. I haven't been focusing on the end that much but whenever Stephen is bringing it up (such as the interview with Jennifer Lawrence on Thurs where he said he had 16 shows left) I am always like 'oh wow :( '

 

btw San Francisco trip is soon, I will report back about my actions! :)

Tangerine: there's a documentary in netflix called The Institute. It's like a weird happening that took place in San Fran a few years ago. You should check out some of its art pieces/buildings/alleys etc while you're in town. Google jejune institute and fall down the rabbit hole.

Also, check out the Clarion Alley mural project!

I watched this documentary a few days ago. Interesting stuff! It definitely creates a setting for the city in my head, if that makes sense. Cool to know small details like that.
