MG vs. St. P

Posted by cjaxon on March 20, 2011

I spent this week in NYC for spring “break.” I’ll write about that soon. Right now, I have some very pressing matters to discuss. As it turned out, I was in New York during St. Patrick’s Day. The whole town was decked out in green shirts, face paint, funny hats, and were slightly intoxicated. (I saw people stumbling around as early as 2 pm.) It was quite a festive day.

Also coming up: an essay and test on Hinduism, attending three different performances, and working at a Haunted House. Ah, the exciting life of a performer.

Summer Playlist, 2010

Posted by cjaxon on August 5, 2010

This isn’t a playlist of like, the hottest new songs of 2010. These are just what I’ve been listening to, from May to today. I’m actually pretty proud – there’s a nice variety of styles and artists. Most of them are 3 years old or more, but hey, better late than never. Comment and tell me what you think! Some of them are links to a good youtube page if you wanna hear them.
