Back to the Sack.

Well, March Break has come and gone, and now it's time to get back to business. Though the second half of the semester is still young, there's still lots of cool stuff going down. Here's the scoop:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-As the last hurrah of the break, I got to see the Barenaked Ladies in concert at Harbour Station in Saint John. What a great performance; the musicianship was flawless, which brought some of their so-so new songs up to the level of their classics. Speaking of which, they played through some of their biggest and best: "If I Had $1000000," "What a Good Boy," "Pinch Me," etc. Best of all, though, they were extremely funny and charismatic, breaking out into choreographed dancing and fights during the set. They also played a couple of improvised songs and made a few Saint John jokes. All in all, a great show, especially since they were one of the first bands I remember hearing as a kid.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- I decided to run for Bigelow House president on Wednesday, and I'm now in the middle of getting posters, slogans, and other campaign paraphernalia. It looks like a fun race, and I have a lot of plans for next year, which I can't really go into detail about here...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- You may have noticed that there aren't any visuals on my blog. I know I certainly have. So, over the next few days, I'm going to try and update the blog with photos, pictures and maybe some other cool stuff. Stay tuned.

Current music: The Avalanches - "Since I Left You"
I missed out on this album when it came out back in the early years of the millenium. But this track is pure genius - a collage of samples taken from God-knows-where, and stitched together into four minutes of sunny, crackling pop bliss. Perfect for a cloudy day like today.

The Avalanches are so rad man. I really like Etoh. GOOD SONG.
