There has been a little bit of controversy surrounding this show, but it honestly does. not. matter. I’m really excited to be checking this out. It is sometimes crazy to me to think about the evolution of Netflix and how they were just a DVD mailing service to streaming and now their own programming. Other series on my list include Terrace House and 13 Reasons Why. What about all of you? Any recommendations?
Also! Big ups to Allen Stone who is having his song featured in this trailer! YES!
It’s been two weeks since we’ve had one of these posts and so much has happened! I didn’t have time to post last weekend’s highlights so I’m combining it with this lovely holiday weekend. Some of my best girl friends from Seattle flew to see Ash and I for the long weekend and like any vacation we jam packed our days from start to finish. It’s interesting how the trips you plan when you are out of college and “more of an adult” shift from the vacation breaks you had when you were in school. Instead of traveling to cities where you plan on drinking constantly and sleeping in because of your hangovers, you’re waking up at 8:00 and getting your morning started. (Sort of like how the five of us would any day!) Instead of drinking, we put our money towards amazing meals and instead of going to bars, we went wine tasting in Sonoma. So there.
– also don’t those fireworks look great?! They went off Wednesday evening in San Francisco after the Giant’s game and they looked a whole lot better than the ones we tried to watch on 4th of July from this view.
I did my first hike with some co-workers at Rancho San Antonio Open Space last weekend! There really are some gorgeous views here in the Bay Area.
On Sunday afternoon, we caught a free concert from Yuna and Allen Stone at Stern Grove. We had never been over to this area before, but we loved how it was just kind of hidden in this park and large enough to hold a concert and fit THIS many people. It’s definitely one of the prettiest venues I’ve ever been to.
We’ve been watching episodes of this on Netflix.
We got athletic and competitive during our pre 4th of July company picnic with Bubble Soccer.
What I love about the Seattle music scene is that everyone is friends with each other and when one band or one artist is going through a tough time, the community comes together to make things right. Recently Kris Orlowski and his band were robbed of their equipment for the third time! I’m not sure if anyone ever realizes this (kind of like how most people don’t understand what a production a concert/music festival can be) but equipment is not cheap. A new music start-up named Ziibra (who we also have been working with!) is hosting a a “We Were Robbed” benefit show for Kris and his band on April 29th at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard with an all-star lineup. At this show, you’ll find sets by Kris Orlowski, Allen Stone, Meagan Grandall (Lemolo), Daniel Blue (Motopony) and quite a few others! Tickets for the show are $10.
Earlier this week a pawn shop was able to track down $80 of their stolen gear so any extra proceeds from the show will go straight towards the non-profit MusiCares.
What a fun way to gather music enthusiasts together in a prom setting for the announcement of their favorite Seattle music festival! Also, hi – Allen Stone. I cannot wait! And I can’t wait for this year’s Bumbershoot once again.
There were just too many fantastic reads today that I couldn’t make a post about every single one of them. Seriously, they are taking up all my tabs so I decided to turn them into a roundup post for your viewing convenience.
1. Facebook Prototype – Swedish designer Fred Nerby created this awesome prototype of a possible Facebook user interface that looks nothing like Timeline. Instead it resembles something more of the renovated MySpace, but damn, this looks. good. If you want to see the details clearer, watch the Vimeo in full screen. [Source]
