Your LOL Moment of the Week
In case you were unaware, this blog is run by four of us at three different colleges in the US. Those would be Macalester, Cornell, and the University of Connecticut. Now if you attended Cornell or Macalester, you'd have been serenaded by the likes of Andrew Bird, Fleet Foxes, The Decemberists, Delta Spirit, Blitzen Trapper, Stars, Neko Case, Dan Auerbach and some others. Even better, in April Macalester gets Andrew Bird, Dr. Dog, Natalie Portman's Shaved Head, Bishop Allen, M. Ward, Dan Deacon, Noah and the Whale, Lily Allen, Blind Pilot, Wavves, Cloud Cult, The Cave Singers, Great Lake Swimmers, Peter Bjorn and John, Chairlift and the Junior Boys. That's an very impressive list of artists to have in such a short time. Now imagine you attended the University of Connecticut. You've already had your ears blown off by the disarming sounds of Eve 6. But nothing can prepare you for the horrors that is 50 cent. That's right, 50 is coming to my school, actually planning on playing a show. Now while I certainly don't plan on attending, it makes me sad to think of how many fantastic artists are out there, almost too many to count, and my school gets one of the few I really despise. Thus, this LOL moment of the week is solely for you readers, because it is my FML moment of the week.
