do you ever feel like everything is art? the other day i was wandering around campus and the world was so beautiful. colors and lines and light, and people walking through it without noticing a thing. i took a few pictures but there didn't seem much point to it: everything was lovely, why should i choose a few spots to save?

saturday before last, i went down to boston. first was the LSAC forum, which was pretty much a waste of my time. oh well. but i did manage to get lost like 4 times, which was good times. stupid mass. anyway- after that was the bouncing souls/fountains of wayne show at city hall plaza. it was scheduled to start at 4, but i didnt' know if there'd be an opening band or what else would be going on or whatever, so i wasn't real worried. got there at like 4:30 and bouncing souls was finishing up, so i only heard a few songs. since when do shows start on time?? that doesn't happen. and i ran into llama and jay on the T on teh way over, but they left like 20 minutes later for some silly reason, so nuts to them. there was this cute old couple who were dancing through FoW's whole set, so naturally i took videos of them dancing. then hung out with becka all night, which was rad. i certainly did not buy her - an underage girl - 2 bottles of cheap wine, because that would be wrong and illegal. but we did have some deep-fried mac-and-cheese, which was as amazing as it sounds. and she left me a nice note:

these guys (now playing) are the granddaddys of industrial, from the 80s, but they have matured into this really beautiful subtle music. though it's still fucked up. in the booklet for this cd, at the end of each song's lyrics, they tell you all the instruments that they used recording it. here is a small sampling of what's on this album: small t-beams, tape echo, silk, polystyrene, presence, cigarette, tinitus guitar, jet turbine, microphone performance, pythagorean tube bells, amplified pneumatic piston and electric signal horn installations, engraving stick, amplified metal percussion, bass spring, tape speed manipulation, amplified large spring, tv set, blue bin, spanish drills, brushes, birkenstocks, vase, free falling objects, metal bar, chains, car tire, sigh, installation of metal stripes and electric drill motors, glass
