Guildie Love

My new guilty pleasure: watching the Guild. This webisode by Felicia Day is highly entertaining. It also has an awesome selection of music. I bought The Main Drag’s “Yours as Fast as Mine”, after listening to “Love During Wartime” at the end of a Guild episode. It’s a beautiful, glitchy pop song.

And I was tickled by the Guild’s music video.
Hot stuff!

Live Music and Cajun Food

Last July, we saw this fab group playing outside of a Cajun restaurant in Berkeley: Angeline’s Louisiana Kitchen on Shattuck. Good food and tunes.

Alanis Crow Project

Earlier this week, the Alanis Crow Project rocked out on our morning show. They specialize in covers of songs by Alanis Morissette & Sheryl Crow.

Those Alanis songs brought me back to my Senior year in high school. I remember sitting outside of the Drama classroom for lunch. Some of my friends talked about nabbing tickets for her concert. Another friend was trying to stay in her relationship with one of the guys who had a pair of tickets. I think I signed my boyfriends yearbook with Alanis lyrics. Wow. That was a long time ago.
