I kind of maybe a little bit disappeared . . . oops.
But, HELLO AGAIN
It’s October . . . 6th. Oh, shoot, that reminds me, Happy Anniversary to two thirds of my parental unit! October 6th also means that it’s been almost a month since I last posted. Considering probably no one reads this I’m sure no one cares, but if you are reading this, and do (thanks!), sorry.
So, I thought I’d come back with the highlights of my September because there were some pretty messy days last month, and it’s good to focus on the good (wow, great adjectives, Mariah).
So far October has been pretty bright, and on the whole I’m feeling a fair bit more positive.
In the middle of September the Chan Centre hosted a concert by Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer, which I attended. Thile is heralded as one of the utmost mandolin players in the world, and Meyer the same, but double bass. Needless to say, it was wonderful.
If you’re at all interested, they recently released an album together, which you can sample (and even purchase) at www.thilemeyer.com
Just a week later I attended my first “real” concert at the PNE Forum, Die Antwoord. They were super wild and energetic, and I don’t really know how that night could have been improved upon. This concert was the place to be if you wanted to sample the weirdest people of Vancouver and surrounding areas.
Die Antwoord is the kind of music I like to listen to when I’m about to go out on the weekend, or if I’m driving somewhere, rather than on my own during down time. If you’re thinking of checking them out note that they’re a bit NSFW and provocative, but it’s not to be taken seriously.
The last highlight of my September was the discovery of guanacos:
This discovery may actually be the highlight of my year. They are like llama 3.0s, and their name rhymes with taco. What could be better? Seriously what?
So, yeah, just going to leave you with that.
Pretty fantastic, hey?
Hopefully I’ll be back a bit sooner next time.
