The IT hat

…When I wear this:

Elliott: Sing me something, Jason Mraz…


Ty: Has anyone told you that you look like Jason Mraz in that hat?

Song of the Day

Letters and Lights – Smile Bright

There are very few songs that can make me instantly happy, but this one does! In fact, for the past week I have woken up and played this song just to start off my day.

Seattle Music – near and dear to my heart.

Actually, I met the lead singer Erik a couple years back at a show through a mutual friend. We used to go to all the same shows, but back then in the “scene lyfe” he was known as Erik-who-straightens-his-hair haha I am so impressed with his music today and am excited to see what great things will come out of their band.

I think right now, they’re in California doing some other things with The Scene Aesthetic, which is also great to hear. They were part of that Santa Monica show on the pier/beach thing.

Come listen to this song and the rest of their music at their MySpace.

Cornish Gets Pretty With Residence Halls!

Cornish College of the Arts has decided to remodel the former neighboring Days Inn into a residence hall after 95 years of being a school. This fall, 280 first-year students will move in to their “dorm” on August 30th. They have been undergoing this transformation since the beginning of summer.

Seattle Music Update

Seeing Lizzie perform last night was amazing. She has such an incredible voice, it’s just always nice to hear and see her as well! It had been what feels like almost a year since I last saw her. We actually left the venue and took the show outside to the park for a more intimately summer setting.

Her show was at the Ground Zero Teen Center, the same place I attended my very first show when I was fifteen. The place has changed SO much. It just looked like a great place with all the young teenagers running around there. It brought back some great memories especially seeing the framed pictures on the wall of  fliers of sold out shows back in the day.

For some reason, being at a show, seeing old friends… it always feels the most comfortable, like my home away from home.

So! I’m going to get to news.

Lizzie will be releasing her album soon. More details will be released later on when I find out.

Tom Pfaeffle’s memorial concert will be on August 13th at the Moore Theater. The time and performances have not been released, but I do know that Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground will be performing I believe.

– My dear friend Matt Bekker will be performing tomorrow at the Edgewater Hotel. I went to see him last week and posted, so if you are interested in what you have seen go check him out.

Check out the event here

Andrew and Eric from the band The Scene Aesthetic are recording in California right now and every so often they will have uStream shows, in which they answer questions from fans or give you a glimpse of their recording sessions. You can find more information about those from their Twitter so become a follower!

Mattress Dominos

My favorite part is when some of the people underestimate where the mattress before them will land and then it hits them in a sensitive spot. It’s lulzworthy.

Anyways, a group of employees from Bensons for Beds in England decided to test out mattress dominos to set a world wide record. They will most likely get it because I’m sure that wasn’t even in the book in the first place.

Watching this video reminded me that it is about time I invested in a new mattress. Moreover, did you know that both the mattress industry and the Sleep Council strongly recommend that you should replace a mattress every eight years, because by this time it will have lost much of its original comfort and support?

Accordingly, in total you spend about one-third of your life on your mattress, so, therefore, it plays a significant part in your general health and well-being, not to mention your day-to-day energy levels, alertness, and mood.

With this in mind, doing plenty of research online can help you find the best mattress for your needs. For example, if you weigh more than an average person, a latex mattress might not provide the proper level of comfort. This is when a quick online search could prove to be beneficial for you as it could help you find bariatric mattress. The main purpose of a bariatric mattress is to provide support to heavier individuals and protect them from developing bedsores and skin ulcers. There are many qualities that can make bariatric mattresses a good choice, including layers of various types of foams, alternate pressure air cushions, no motion transfer, and pressure distribution. So, hopefully, you can understand why this exercise of researching on the Internet is so important when it comes to improving your overall health and wellbeing.

Anyway, during my research, I came across this article that enabled me to learn more about this natural latex mattress and how it can supposedly be one of the best mattresses to guarantee a good night’s sleep for people who are not heavy. Who would have thought it? But whilst the benefits highly outweighed the cons, this wasn’t for me, and so I decided to continue with my research to see what else I could find.

Personally, I find that reading reviews is a fantastic way to see what people are saying about different products and therefore before I decide which mattress to buy, I will definitely be comparing a few options online first.

Consequently, some friends of mine have told me to take a look at this ecosa vs koala mattress guide for some inspiration. If you have any mattress recommendations of your own, do get in touch as I would love to hear them!

Anyway, check out the video that I have linked above, and share your thoughts. I am so excited to hear what you have to say!

Find yourself questioning religion? Not sure which path to take? Scared to death by Tom Cruise?

Then SHIANTOLOGY may be for you.

A new religion founded on Sunday, February 8, 2009 and characterized by a belief in the power of Shia’s spirit to clear itself of past painful experiences (in particular, hand smashing car crashes and drunken outbursts in Walgreens) through self-knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and copious amounts of Arizona Ice Tea.

Shiantology places an emphasis upon Shia’s immortal spirit, Shiacarnation, an extrascientific method of pshiachotherapy (Shianetics), and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, daily SHIA WALKING POSTS.


…I don’t make this shit up.

Mac’s are not unstoppable

My first Apple computer arrived at my house when I was about 5 or 6. At some we decided to upgrade completely to PC’s and it was probably the best decision we’ve ever made.

Mac’s might be trendy, slim, lightweight etc, but they cannot live up to the performance that I need in a computer. Besides the iPod, that is the only product I will buy from them and even THAT freezes up sometimes. Perhaps, if I had the right expertise in mastering mac, it would then have made my life more efficient and enjoyable. Maybe, at a later stage, I might enroll myself in any Apple classes nearby!

The other day, my friend Chuck posted as his Facebook status that his $3000 Mac laptop broke after one year when he really needed it the most to edit his videos more extensively. This caused kind of a flurry over his status of people who loathe or love Macs. With some people telling him he should look into a service similar to mac repair Longmont for 3rd party repair services, and others told him he should just finally get rid of it.

The truth is, Macs are not perfect and Dino Dai Zovi was out to prove it! The author of “The Mac Hacker’s Handbook,” has said that, “there’s a an Apple security flaw in OS X that can give a malicious coder complete control of a Mac.”

At the core of the hack is a short code script that gives a hacker access to a Mac’s memory. Making it possible to gain root access to the machine, and subsequently a remote TCP connection is setup. Allow said hacker to gain access to your personal data, attack the machine, execute files, or quietly monitor Safari to sniff your attempts to access your financial and banking details online.

Just say no.
