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.
Facebook brought us Timeline and guess what?
We got over it.
Just like we knew we would.
– 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.
