Now, hear us out on this one, because we certainly have reasoning behind this. It is not simply an effort to draw out a random scapegoat. Our theory lies in the following beliefs:
That the 2007-2008 academic season represented one of the greatest years for the Classic City…
30 Songs in 30-ish Days
Day 6 or so: A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere
Bob Dylan- “Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream.” I was on a huge Dylan kick in 2005, and everything I hear this, I think of a distinct place: Cloverhurst Street, right behind Bolton Dining Hall, where I would walk back from class to Creswell. I remember intently listening to the song and laughing at the absurd surrealistic lyrics. It’s always been one of my favorite Dylan tracks.
I came to the conclusion today that there may be a ‘market’ for cute lil alt weddings, and that there is a lack of chill wedding planners in the world.
Thinking about starting a Chill Weddings business. Will help the couples find the most alt venue, food that is so best, and most importantly design a chill music set for the ceremony and reception.
May even look into getting certified to perform weddings so that I can say “I now pronounce you bro and bro, may the rest of your days be as chill as today”
It’s very likely that my wedding is going to have a taco bar, incidentally. So chill, bro.
30 Songs in 30 Days- Day 4ish: A Song That Makes Me Feel Sad
Neil Young- “Fallin’ Off the Face of the Earth.”
(Note: No updates over Labor Day weekend, so I’m catching up today)
I’ve always found Prairie Wind to be very underrated. Fresh off his aneurysm and the death of his father, it’s absolutely heartbreaking to listen to Uncle Neil at points on this album, particularly this ode to his late father.
30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 3- A Song that Makes You Happy: ”Effect and Cause” by The White Stripes.
The clever lyrics and Jack White’s little laughs at himself always crack me up.
Well, well, well. Your team has been all but eliminated from postseason contention, and you’ve decided to slum it by lowering yourself to cheering for the Boys from the South.* Yes, the Atlanta Braves. Hey, retro is in, and what better way to relive the 90s than cheering for that decade’s darling baseball franchise?
The first step in following the Braves is to dampen your expectations. Without a fanbase filled with such lowered expectations, there’s no way Bobby Cox could have survived with only one ring after fifteen division titles and four consecutive non-playoff finishes. For some of you, this will be very hard. For most of us in Atlanta, this isn’t too tough because, in the realm of sports craziness, even the most diehard baseball nuts from the Northeast don’t hold a candle to SEC football fans. For us, baseball is a light diversion from our all-out obsession with everything that happens on Saturdays in the fall. That helps make the Braves’ crushing, inevitable October disappointment a little more tolerable. Georgia fans are used to crushing disappointment in October.
But enough sullenness. There’s plenty to love with this Braves team. So let’s do a quick rundown of everything awesome (and sometimes less than awesome) about the Braves to get you up to speed before the playoff push.
