- Dan Savage was reportedly getting a television show w/ MTV…

- We wished the Vera Project a happy 10th birthday! Now they are 11!

One Year Ago Today…

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 Year Ago Today

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.
