Three Songs That Will Fix Your Day

The other day I mentioned how you should keep your head up, hang in there, and stay positive about your outlook on life. Well in case that is proving to be rather difficult, I have some good news for you. Part of how I was able to get through rough patches in my day and life in general was by listening to music. Everyone has their anthem that gets them through the day, and here are three of my personal anthems for when life gets rough.

Unwanted Visitor Mishap

So I should have expected that at some point during my lovely stay in New York, that I would come face to face with a few ugly mugs. I’ve seen rats in the subways at night, I’ve sat next to smelly people on the subway, and I’ve even encountered a handful of unpleasant cat-calls…all with some respectable level of grace. However I do have one kryptonite: when I’m tired, I don’t really handle bugs well, much less cockroaches.

When I rolled in from Electric Zoo on Saturday at a staggering 3 AM, this hideous thing greeted me by jumping out from under the shower curtain, scurrying into the vanity mirror, and scuffling around the sink.

I should be noted that I was at Electric Zoo from 11 PM until close, had probably lost 10 pounds of water from dancing and screaming like a crazed fangirl, and had only had some meatballs and a hummus sandwich. My reaction to the hideous little nasty was probably more comical that effective: I sprayed at it with bathroom cleaner, yelped when it charged at me from the sink, and tried to swing at it with my face towel (not a brilliant idea in retrospect). Too exhausted to deal with it, I ended up chasing it with a plunger in the bathtub and hissing at it. I decided it would be smart to document its existence just in case, and snapped a picture of it before capturing it under the plunger. After I’d finally gotten something to eat, I managed to hit it with end of my loofah stick and promptly threw it in the garbage before taking a much-needed shower, hissing at it again, and going to sleep.

Electric Zoo 2012 Recap

Greetings from the mass of 100,000 in attendance at Electric Zoo 2012 this year!

Hey all! Apologies for the delay on posts! I was working extra-hard to bring you a video montage recap of Electric Zoo 2012! Check out the images and video below for the full experience. For reference, I was roughly 20 feet from stage!! Footage includes Tiesto, Skrillex, Bingo Players, W&W, Dev, and Sander Van Doorn (also pardon how shaky it was, the crowd was pretty excited). For full streaming of most of the sets, check out enkay’s collection of EZoo streams!

Upcoming Misadventures

Hey all!

I figured I’d give you a quick informal weekend update on what to expect next!

As you might have noticed, I added some music to the blog…mainly because I’ve become a bit obsessed with Timeflies ever since I saw them at Princeton Lawnparties (it will make you wish you had tigerblood)

I will be releasing some new Uncommon Verbiage tonight or tomorrow (I’m trying to pick out the perfect one given that its concert season) as well as doing some research for Viral Monday (Ermagerd seemed to be quite popular).

What else can you look forward to?

Well, I have quite a crazy lineup of concerts coming up. Monday I will be seeing beloved band Idle Warship perform with my besties from college that got me hooked,

and then, I will be attended Saturday and Sunday of unofficial raver’s paradise, Electric Zoo. I would explain more about it, like before, except I feel like the promos speak for themselves:

From there, I am still taking suggestions!

So stay tuned, and get hyped!

We Are All Animals: Electric Zoo!

Hey guys! You may have heard me excitedly posting that I will be attending Electric Zoo this year, but just in case you missed it: IM GOING TO BE AT ELECTRIC ZOO HECK YEA!

Yea, its pretty big. This is a picture taken at Electric Zoo 2010. Image courtesy of D-Series.

To explain briefly what Electric Zoo is, essentially it is one massive music event (concert is not a fully viable word for this magnitude). It features a colossal lineup of big names like Skrillex, 3Lau, Steve Aoki, and David Guetta. I could try to explain how the entire event is one dreamy techno/dubstep-filled atmosphere of joy and exuberance…or you could just watch the trailer:

Thinking you might want to join in on the fun? Here are some things you should do before booking your tickets:
