A Week In + Necklace Review

Sometimes I don't think I have a lot to blog about... then I realize what I've been doing for the past few weeks and suddenly it's overwhelming. I have a HELL of a lot to blog about. So, in order to keep it fresh, I'm going to keep it short, and then on to the necklace review thanks to mynamenecklace.com :)


Thursday

My CoS article - interview with Bill Gould posted. Reached the far corners of the world in a surprising amount of time. FIRST WRITTEN US INTERVIEW IN 12 YEARS AND IT WENT TO ME! That is still... wow, blows me away. So happy :)

If you haven't read it yet, PLEASE do, it's very insightful (whether you like Faith No More or not) and it means a lot to me. Very important stuff, OK?

Here is the screenshot of the main page

Later Thursday

I went to the Alice and Chains, Deftones, Mastodon concert. Missed Mastodon, but heard they were rad. Thought Deftones was awesome but not as long as their headlining set I saw in Spokane back in August. Still, good show and we got Passenger, which wasn't on the Spokane set.

Alice in Chains totally won me over. I grew up with them in the 90's, my bro listened to them a lot, but I never really liked Layne's voice. RIP. Now William DuVall, I did like... thought he was a great, energetic, humble addition to the band. And the sound was incendiary. Just wow. PS pictures suck because I didn't have my big camera... wasn't reviewing the show for once.

Saturday

Met up with my friend Jen, whom I hadn't seen in ages, at this bar in Chinatown called Keefers. Really cool place, Duck Sliders for $8 and interesting apothocary cocktails - she had one which was lime, rosemary and gin and it was fabulous.

Then we went to the Japandroids/Ladyhawk show at the Rickshaw that I was reviewing. Was really awesome to see so much enthusiastic support for this band (especially with a hockey game going on) - gives me hope for the music scene here! Oh and rad show too, the Japandroids are two very loud, very cool dudes.

Last but not least, my necklace review!

www.Mynamenecklace.com was nice enough to send me a necklace of my choice. You can choose different fonts, sizes, lengths, colours and any words you want. Normally you choose your name, but I didn't want one of those types of necklaces (my name is silly).

So I picked the name of a song that is dear to me - RICOCHET - it also has double meaning. All hate ricochets right off me, along the lines of "I'm rubber and you're glue" :)

It's a great necklace too, doesn't aggravate my metal allergies in anyway and is very lightweight. I rarely take it off (truth) and it came in a wonderful box. And is very affordable! Recommend! Go check 'em out and take a look HERE.

They'll go perfectly with my earrings I got back in July (thanks Kira!) lol.

First: I love all the pictures you take.

Second: My friend is obsessed with Alice in Chains. When Layne Staley died, she wrote his mom a letter about how much he meant to her and his mom totally wrote back.

Third: In fifth grade, my nickname was Ricochet because someone flicked a paper football and it ricocheted off my glasses. I hated being called that. But I love your necklace.

I have one of those necklaces, but I went down the boring route!

You look gorgeous in the green dress you wore to the Canuck's game!

WendyB said...

How cute do you look in all situations! Unfair!

Agata said...

Your necklace looks fab :) I have to think about some special jewellery for my own :)

I love that you wore the Canucks colours in a classy way without actually wearing the jersey. I mean I love the jersey, but this is so great. Free tickets, you lucky girl!

Semi-related story, a friend once gave me a stuffed animal and his name tag said, "Rick O'Shay". lol. I might be the only one to find that funny. You guys look like you're always up to something fun! :)

Karinaxoxo said...
