I won't tell you how much I spent, but it was a great day!


  1. #1 - I want to listen to The White Stripes and Arcade Fire. Does that make me a hipster?

    #2 - Film is the thing with the pictures moving fast. These things that you write of are music. I know it's confusing.

    1. 1. Get a record player and I'll let you borrow them :). Or just come over sometime.

      2. I'll refer you to the subtitle of my blog. Particularly the "and sometimes other stuff" part.
