So I tagged along to the New Pornographers show last night, I've only listened to them a little bit (and pretty much love every song I've heard, like this song... Adventures In Solitude). What a disappointing performance! They weren't very engaging and didn't seem to be prepared to be playing. Too bad. (I do really like them though, and they sounded good... when they weren't making mistakes).

Now just looking forward to the An Horse show on Thursday.

Love, Keiko.

This is a beauty:

Love, Keiko.

Love, Keiko.

I love TV.

Season finale time = Not a fun time of the year. All the cliff hangers are so intense and so exciting, and then waiting until the fall is painful. Gossip Girl and Grey's Anatomy... WHAT.

Love, Keiko.

That's it.

I just got home from a quick road trip to Vancouver.

I didn't miss Calgary at all.

Let's move to Vancouver forever.

Love, Keiko.

this fits.

scanners is a band signed to steve aoki's dim mak label.
i like.



i seriously wish i had something cool to report...
however, other than listening to lots of music i'm at a loss.
i was loving the hot hot heat earlier this week, but i also am enjoying some rain.
it smells so fresh and sweet out.
lets talk about movies i want to see:

- the trotsky
- dinner for schmucks (july 23rd)
- the other guys (august 6th)
- true grit (december 25th)
- the rum diary
- you will meet a tall dark stranger

actually...after looking through movie releases for the year there are very few that i'm actually excited about. what a let down. well, lets instead just watch a funny jimmy kimmel clip.

come on and get the minimum.

i don't really have any music lists lately, but i have been listening to some really great albums including forgiveness rock record (broken social scene), weapons grade romantic (dojo workhorse), smoking gun (lady of the sunshine), and broken bells (broken bells). on that note this single by broken bells is amazing:
the high road

i'll believe in anything.

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

give me your eyes, i need sunshine.

it's not winter anymore...i want sun.

take me to higher ground.

higher ground is one of my favourite coffee establishments in calgary.
i haven't met anyone that hasn't liked it, to be fair.
its a great independently owned cafe that serves organic drinks.
just a sweet spot with a great atmosphere.
however, what truly sets higher ground apart for me is one drink:
the dublin mist.
a mix of an english breakfast tea and irish creme, its the bees knees.
i don't know of anywhere else that serves this, but they should.
it is amazing.

I ran away.

Today: Last exam + off to Toronto and Montreal.

I think that Mumford & Sons is an unreal band (Have I blogged about them before? Probs not, maybe just in a top5 or top10). These videos are prettyyy awesome:

And THIS song is my current fave.

Love, Keiko.
