my co-worker just said those exact words to me after I stretched and squeaked. so I thought I should share with everyone that I can make a unicorn noise.
and also, guess who never takes pictures anymore? yeah, that would be me. I’m pretty sure it’s because of my lack of a legit camera that isn’t a phone. my actual camera broke after the mish. sooo.. I pretty much am not half as click-happy as I used to be.
I probably should have taken some pics this weekend, cuz it was pretty memorable. Friday I hit up a bbq with some awesome peeps and then the new G.I. Joe with guys from high school that I haven’t seen SINCE high school, who are both awesome. let’s summarize the movie as.. a testosterone fest with eye candy for both sexes.. I’ll watch Channing Tatum as long as they’ll let me. 🙂 I actually liked it. it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but I liked it. it was a lot more space-age technology and submarine underwater battle than I thought would come from a supposedly U.S. Army movie.. but whatever.
and Saturday was Warped Tour.. pretty much exceeded my low expectations. there were quite a few decent bands, despite me originally thinking the lineup wasn’t that impressive this year. I didn’t get to everyone I wanted, but such is life when there are like 564302 bands playing the same show at the fairgrounds. I DID get to see (in no particular order):
All Time Low – missed half their set due to navigating the will call line and forgetting stuff in my vehicle, but what I heard was legit.
Hit the Lights – funny intro.. Christina Milian, “AM to PM.” (you know the one.. “somebody hit the lights, so we can rock it day and night, people gettin down, that’s right, from AM to PM. Woo!”) not super impressed with their live show. or their pervy potty mouths. watched half the set.
Ivoryline – let’s be honest.. sweet mustaches. good tunes.
Less Than Jake – only heard part of their set. good. Alex of All Time Low called them “mythological creatures,” they’ve been doing this so long. agreed.
Friday Night Boys – met the lead singer Andrew, super nice guy with awesome hair, gave me a free poster and sticker, kind of shafted my friend Fudge. haha. played a good set.
Valencia – awesome set. one of the best of the show. sold their cd for $2 because they’re all about the music rather than the fame and scrill.
You Me at Six – British! this was my first exposure to them.. I felt good about it.
Meg & Dia – I know everyone thinks this is a weak girl band, but I have to give Utah girls props for being out there making their music and rockin Warped Tour.
Cobra Starship – very entertaining show, despite the constant stream of curse words. several guest singers from other bands in the show, which was an excellent touch. I wanna play the keytar.
Sing It Loud – poppy sound that’s catchy and fun. definitely easy on the ears. lots of swinging hair from surfer boys.
Forever the Sickest Kids – SUPER good set. I really like this band. and they were super funny and entertaining to watch without the dirty uneducated grime.
Bayside – always a classic. listened to them in the late afternoon sitting on the grass watching nothing but people’s backsides standing in front of me when I started to hit the tired wall.
Senses Fail – only saw part of their set because I wanted to see someone else at the time. which one it was.. I couldn’t tell you. Senses Fail is sometimes a bit too screamy for me, though.
Innerpartysystem – favorite surprise of the day. LOVE their fresh techno rock sound. bought their cd. very cool.
least impressed with: NOFX. (or rather.. most UNimpressed.)
okay so that’s my assessment of recent pop culture. any questions?
also yesterday I had to work during most of my fam’s awesome day in Park City riding all the rides and enjoying themselves while I sat in an office talking to crazies on the phone. but I did join them after I got off.. and got an adorable dress, gladiator sandals, and 3 t-shirts.. all for killer deals. yeah-yuh! and then we hit up Arby’s and the Salt Lake Bees game! it was pretty much awesome. mostly because my brother Clarke and I are ridiculous when we get together. and when I say ridiculous, I mean hilarious.
