One year ago today…KONY 2012.
Think about it.
Think about it.
- I gave advice to college students. [Source]
- My style icon, Louise Roe, became the Glamour Editor-At-Large. [Source]
- Yow Yow! had an insanely fun Song of the Day!
- I shared with you all my favorite eye liner of all time by Stila.
- Madonna tried to sway people to attend her show. It didn’t really work.
- We learned about what kids were learning from school. Not much.
- Our favorite internet memes become movie posters that we wanted to buy. [Source]
- We were given the Sasquatch 2012 lineup!
- I was impressed by Jeopardy.
- Seattle Restaurant Week began! This year, it runs through April 8-19. Check out the participating restaurants here.
- We viewed Death Cab For Cutie’s live music video for “You Are A Tourist.”
- We read some news and stuff.
- Madewell debuted their Fall 2011 collection and it was glorious!
- I got a little antsy about summer wedding season. Ashley and I spent 45 minutes watching wedding/proposal videos this evening.
- I wanted to buy some things. What else is new?
- There were a few things that I was obsessing over and they were awesome. Enough said.
- This infographic already told us what we already knew about the Pacific Northwest.
- This book was pretty cool.
- I wondered why Washington never had any cool prints made for them like this one.
- This is the best excuse I’ve ever seen.
- We admired Elie Saab’s 2011 Spring Couture Collection
- Dan Savage was reportedly getting a television show w/ MTV…
- We wished the Vera Project a happy 10th birthday! Now they are 11!
- The Song of the Day was Leighton Meester’s Summer Girl from Country Strong. I probably won’t ever see the movie, but I do love this song.
- H&M announced that they would be launching an e-commerce store in the US for 2012!
- We viewed a collection of posters that gave us no reason to watch the movies at all.
- The first Oscar promo video featuring James Franco and Anne Hathaway was released. We had high hopes for that, but unfortunately the entire show just let us down.
- These 175 photos taken at night look like they were taken in plain daylight!
- I reviewed The Pierces’ Love You More EP – the duo behind the Pretty Little Liars theme song.
I was definitely on my winter break because the amount of content I posted would not have been possible during finals week or even a regular week. Random fact – this was not exactly a year ago, but give or take a few days, the new Facebook layout was revealed and now that same thing is happening to us once again with the Timeline.
Well, back to what happened a year ago…
- Mayor Mike McGinn announced that the Dale Chihuly Museum and the KEXP headquarters will be moving into the Seattle Center.
- We learned about the Seattle music scene from 12 local bands in the short series $5 Cover.
- I made up my winter quarter television schedule. RIP Hellcats.
- The Kardashians got serious for the holidays.
- E! never launched this show, thank goodness!
- We learned that a school’s library is a nice alternative for your own bed.
- Flavorwire let us know what our favorite 2010 movies said about us.
One thing that I’m extremely grateful for from WordPress is the archive function for my blog. Yes, I realize that many sites do have this. No, this is not the first time I am discovering it. Many times, what I have found in blog writing is that I write the post and then I’m done. I don’t revisit many of my old posts and many of them sort of get forgotten and left in the past. It’s funny because I wanted to create Yow Yow! initially so that I could remember everything that has happened within the past few years, but I haven’t made any effort to do that…until now.
On August 25, 2010 this happened:
- We learned that London would be hosting this awesome installation called Outrace
- We mourned the 9-year anniversary of Aaliyah’s death. Unfortunately, today will have been ten years since her death.
- Songs that we couldn’t get out of our heads were given to us one after the other on Unhearit.
- Gmail taught us how to take back an email that we didn’t really mean to send immediately after sending it. I still can’t figure out how to do that today.
