Crafts/Music: Weezer Memories Tour

Hi everyone! Man, there have been so many concerts the past couple of months. I've been to more shows in the past two months than I have in the past few years back home in Hawaii.

Last week we had the once in a lifetime opportunity to see Weezer's Memories Tour and it was amazing. In this tour, the band played both the Blue Album and Pinkerton in their entirety. Those two albums are pretty much their best and the only ones I really listen to, so it was a treat.

In commemoration of this event I made a cross-stitched sampler of a lyric from "Undone (The Sweater Song)":weezercrossstitchI think I'm going to start making a whole bunch of these featuring lyrics, movie quotes and book quotes that I love. What do you think?

And of course, here's a video of Weezer playing this very song at the show. Sorry for the shakiness and quality, we were really far away and kevin and i took turns holding the camera. :)

Better videos to come!

Music: I'm Back And With A Video

rxbanditsfarewellHello all! It's been almost a month since I've seen you all. Kevin and I have been up to a few things, but one of the most recent awesome events was the Rx Bandits show we went to at El Corazon.

They are one of the bands I wanted to see in my lifetime and I finally got to. Too bad it was their Farewell tour; first and last time I'll ever see them, but at least I had the chance. I remember when I worked at Vans back in Hawaii, my friend Ashley and I would play their albums in the store over and over again and talk about how amazing it would be to see them.

Needless to say, it was better than I ever imagined it would be.

rxbandits4I've seen so many pictures and videos of these guys that it was so surreal to see them in person.

I even got a short video of them. I had a few more, but you can hear me singing in the background of those and it's super embarrassing. Here's a snippet of their song Decrescendo:

Sorry if it's a little shaky, I was getting pushed around a bit by the crowd.

So great!
