Today there was laundry and running in the morning. Then a short tech fee meeting in the afternoon accompanied by a slice of cheese pizza. I read a little more of the Dave Eggers novel until I got cold.
Walking home across Red Square, the bricks were covered with chalk. Apparently people want Terry Gray to give them their KaZaA back. Among the pleas for file sharing bandwidth some people were chalking a phrase like "isn't there a war you should be protesting?" with a Napster symbol below.
Later, I met tanukisuit
at the Showbox for the Bright Eyes show. She was kind enough to let me buy her extra ticket and hang out with me. The opening bands -- subgroups and various permutations of the orchestra -- were entertaining and talented. When they all came together to form Bright Eyes, it was pretty darn great. How often do you see a bassoon on stage at a rock (emo-country?) show? They completely rocked out, as appropriate. Connor even riled up some anti-war sentiments.
I took some pictures, but they weren't particularly good. A couple surprised me, but I really need to learn how to better use my camera.
