Dudes in Startup Shirts

So it’s not the best looking Tumblr, but how Silicon Valley of them anyways…

Can we include some females in this though too? We also wear startup shirts if you didn’t know.

Ariana Grande for Marie Claire

While I’m very excited to see Ariana Grande in concert, I’m pretty disappointed to hear that she is such a diva in person and especially to her fans! It’s such a bummer. I would never pay nearly $500 for her meet-and-greet package, but I remember what it was like to idolize a young pop star when I was a kid and having parents that will go to great lengths to make you a happy kid – including my father who accompanied me to my first concert at age 7. Spice Girls. They’re really a girl group… for everyone.

7 Months From Now…

It has been years since I’ve gone to a concert that was such a huge production, but I was going to go the distance for Ariana Grande! I went as far as downloading some random app called “Fahlo,” and becoming a member of her fan club in order to buy presale tickets for a concert that won’t even happy until April. Additionally, because I was purchasing through presale, I had to pay an additional fee that gained me points on “Fahlo” – an app that I don’t care about at all. An additional $25! WHAT.

It’s worth it, I think. I have decent seats and I’m not going to be on the floor, which means that my vision of the stage isn’t going to suck that badly. I am so excited. ARIANA GRANDE LATTE!

Wedding Mondays

Readers, I hope you all had the loveliest Monday! I took my first mini vacation in a very long time this past week and returned home to Seattle for some wedding fun and a whole five days of sunshine! Can you believe it? It’s usually around this time that Seattle starts to get a little bit colder, but as soon as I got back, I quickly realized that I wasn’t going to need the Uniqlo down vest that I had packed with me. So after attending that wedding myself, I would say I’m definitely in this little spirit of love today and am pretty excited to share with you this video. Now, this one has a more serious tone to it, but as a video that I can resonate with given that I’ve attended a couple of traditional Vietnamese weddings in my day… (In my day… I’m not that old, I just really wanted to say that.)

An Italian Beach Resort Photographed From Above

The other day I had a talk with my manager about how a vacation home isn’t really a vacation because it can still be quite stressful trying to make time to see everyone and making plans. Instead, we reflected on how a true vacation is basically going to a beach and doing nothing while being surrounded by sand. That was a pretty nice image to think about for a few seconds. I can’t wait until I get to have a vacation like that (and I know it will happen, but we’ll need some time to get there!) So it’s fitting that I stumbled across this photography series of an Italian Beach Resort photographed from above by Bernhard Lang. Because of how crowded and how big it is, it doesn’t seem that relaxing to me or the type of thing I would be looking for, but I’m sure there are people that eat this stuff up. Regardless, the photographs are pretty amazing.

Mike Song | “TROUBLE” by Jose James (Funk LeBlanc Remix)

I could honestly spend hours watching choreography videos from former Kaba Modern members. ┬áMike Song and Yuri Tag are still filming videos for them and I’m obsessed. I’ve actually been looking into dancing again up in the city and am now just seeking a place that I can become a regular at. I’m pretty scrappy though so I think it will be light years until I actually feel okay enough to post something up. I hadn’t heard this track before, but I love both this version and the original. Mike Song did a great job with the choreography.

MTV’s “No Cameras Allowed”

I’m totally interested in watching this. MTV just made a documentary about a guy who has been sneaking into major music festivals and capturing his entire experience. You can watch the full documentary here. And I’ll probably watch this when I have time next!

Song of the Day

Odesza – How Did I Get Here

It’s an oldie, but a goodie! A certain someone has been playing this song in the car recently so imagine my surprise when I discovered this was a part of their 2012 album! Feels like it just came out in 2014.

Also, happy Friday ya’ll and our 1,000th “Song of the Day” post. I cannot believe we’ve shared 1,000 songs on Yow Yow! This also doesn’t include the many albums we’ve talked about, remixes of the day, and music videos of the day type posts. Werk.

SF Rent Compared to Other Places in the US w/ Food

It’s no secret that rent in San Francisco and the Bay Area is pretty much absurd. In comparison to other cities around the rest of the country, we trump them all… and not in a good way. The worst part about coming home is catching up with my friends and talking about rent. So adult of us, right? And then they tell me that a nearby building in Bellevue is offering up a studio for $1,700 and I went, “Only 1,700?!” Because yes, that’s the kind of price I would jump for over what I am paying currently. The Bold Italic recently created a post comparing rent in San Francisco to other places in the country for the same price. It’s no shocker that everywhere else is better. Check out the full post here.
