Since the last time I blogged, so many landmark events have taken place.
1. Conan left the Tonight Show.
2. US lifts 21-year ban on Haggis
3. Recent Senate race in Massachusetts officially confirmed my suspicions that the state has been taken over by aliens disguised as human beings.
Oh yea. Almost forgot. I finally relocated to NYC, with three suitcases in tow, and a beautiful burr grinder + Chemex brewer left behind. Those will be picked up sometime mid-April when I head home for what might be the best (or worst) Coachella ever. I guess I was lying last year when I said I’d never go back. A six-peat at one of the country’s most popular festivals was definitely not how I wanted to ring in 2010, but the line-up just looks sick. Jay Z, Fever Ray, Little Dragon, La Roux, Devo, Major Lazer, The XX, John waters, Sia, Flying Lotus, Girls, Beach House, Edward Sharp, Pavement, Phoenix, SLY & THE FAMILY STONE (WTF WTF WTF), Charlotte Gainsbourg, GIL SCOTT-HERON, Florence and the Machine…oh my, the list just goes on and on.
Not so excited about: Wale, Dillinger Escape Plan, Tokyo Police Club
Could have been worse though.
Ps. Check out this awesome video I stole from the WMFU blog– it’s Trude Herr singing “I don’t want chocolate” in German. Ironically, I just had THREE salted caramel chocolate mini-cupcakes my colleague Emily made. They are THE GUT BOMB. So delicious.
