i'm actually quite nervous about lolla cause i've never seen ben in a festival setting.  i'm spoiled with my first row, indoor, A/C venues.

I saw Band of Horses Sunday at Bonnaroo.... gotta say, I wasn't too impressed, which is a shame because I've grown really attached to Cease to Begin.  They sounded like a lower quality version of their album.  Sad day.

i saw band of horses at a bar a mile or two from my apartment a good 2 years ago and they were amazing.
some bands just aren't as great at festivals.

Phoenix.... heard a little bit of their set at Bonnaroo.  Good stuff.

yeah, their new album ain't that bad. some of their songs from all their albums can be hit or miss though. still, i appreciate their sound.

same here.
still listening to Black Star.
Talib Kweli and Mos Def have to be one of the greatest duos around.

So, I bought Sims 3. One of the traits you can give your character is "never-nude". I swear to you.
I'm wondering if they wear cut-offs to take a shower in...
I don't know. I couldn't bring myself to make my character a never-nude.

ONE. Eat at Pepper's Pizza.
127 E Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC

TWO; 107 Isley St, Chapel Hill, NC 27516 (Whatever And Ever House)

THREE. Just walk through campus and geek out over the fact that Rosemary and Cameron do not intersect, but run parallel.

All three are really near each other. Franklin runs parallel to Rosemary and Cameron (it's the street in between) and just take a jaunt down Columbia to get to the WaEA house..... Mitchell Lane also intersects with Rosemary right nearby.  I suppose you could also go to Memorial Hall where the reunion happened.



If you drive through Winston-Salem stop at the hospital on Silas Creek Parkway.



Also, check to see if one of Chuck's many bands is playing the night you'll be in town.

i agree with all of this.  especially the last statement.

"Ben is playing a show in Columbus, OH on his summer tour"

f*cking liar, the show is in October! That is not summer- it's fall! I could go if it was in the summer, while I'm in f*cking Ohio, but in the fall I'm back in Boston. Rude. It's three days from November! Summer, my ass.

they said the same thing about the dallas show.  i hardly think september 30 qualifies as summer.

i'm not entirely sure that any tv show will ever surpass my love of Arrested Development. 
it's just too brilliant.
having said that, i haven't given Stranger With Candy a chance yet.

i'm hoping for... anything, really.
something close to home would be nice.
