Man Man!

This past Wednesday night, Kyle, Mark, Mariah, and I went out to Pontiac to see Man Man perform at the Crowfoot! It was a really awesome show, Man Man is an amazing experimental-rock band, they use several different kinds of instruments as well as random objects (bike tires, ladders) to make music. They played a pretty decent set, lots of new and older songs. They didn't play "Rabid Habits", which is one of my favorites, but I still had an awesome time dancing around and sipping cheap beer to the music. It was also cool to drive through downtown Pontiac since I hadn't been there in years. Pontiac, Flint and Detroit are pretty famous for being really dangerous cities, but any city can be dangerous if you are not being careful. I was pleased to see that a coffee shop I really like "Blue note cafe" was still open and packed with people, one of my friends used to play guitar there all the time on weeknights years ago and it was always fun to go see her play. I hadn't been to the Crowfoot since it was changed over from the Emerald Theater, and it was funny to see that the Have a Nice Day Cafe was now an office building for Oakland Community College, but it made me want to check out the city a little more.

Ugh, indoor outfit photos! Hehe, I am partial to outdoor ones, but it has been raining all week and part of this weekend here in the mitten. Kyle really liked the plaid-curtain backdrop in these, which is surprising since he normally protests me wearing plaid with the Doc Martens, but I guess as long as I am not actually wearing it... I wish I could wear outfits like this all the time! I tend to on weekends, Fridays or after work when I am going somewhere, but during the workday I am trying to dress more for my environment. I have realized that it can be really fun to try to put something personal and creative in such a boring, office outfit. Vintage skirts and dresses come in  handy and seem to be approved so I am going to have to keep an eye out. I actually just acquired more hand-me-downs from friends and I am realizing that most of my wardrobe is from the thrift store or from a friend and I have no problem with that.

Mariah made me this awesome and amazing painting, can you see what it is?

It's the Weezer symbol on a piece of wood with a nebula background! I CAN'T EVEN. I swear, I have the most talented and amazing people in my life, and I think this is just an amazing piece of art. Kyle is less than enthused, but that is because I am obsessed with Weezer. I can't wait to hang it up, I love all the personal touches that are being incorporated into our house. We have a ton of hand-me downs, items passed down from Grandparents, and lots of handmade decor. I couldn't be happier!

  13. That dress always looks amazing on you!

    Sounds like a fun show. I love how you support local music. I wish I could do more of that in MN, but none of my friends have a very good music taste (in my opinion ;). I'd love to catch some local acts with you, if only we lived in the same state.
