weekend update  
The New Pornographers show was very good. I pogo'ed all night, which seems to have brought back my ankle pain that was just about back to normal beforehand. Ah, well. Totally worth it. I can kind of see why Neko doesn't always tour with them. It's a shame to waste her talent just playing tambourine for most of the show. But I guess that's what happens when you have three (arguably four) lead singers in a band. Dan Bejar was funny, only coming out for the songs he was singing and leaving just as quickly without ever setting down his drink.

Saturday, we went to an awesome 70-themed Halloween party. I was pretty happy with my costume, which I ended up making almost entirely out of my own clothes.

Sadly there is no photographic evidence showing the awesomeness of my homemade bell bottoms.

Then sunday, we spent the day watching Degrassi, eating Chinese food and Halloween candy, and carving pumpkins with friends in the evening.

Current Mood: 240
Listening to: Teenage Fanclub - "Cells"

Cool, the Jimi Hendrix Experience lives! That was the 60's though wasn't it?

Yeah, sadly Jimi didn't get to see too much of the 70s.

Cool costume. I miss 70s parties (I probably haven't been to one in something like 8 or 9 years but back in college and shortly after I ended up at so many I had a more or less set outfit).

Yeah, ten years ago I remember being to get great 70s clothes at any thrift store, but now it's mostly 80s and 90s clothes.

We had some okay luck at times, but I must be misremembering the timing-probably more like between seven and eleven years ago. By the end it was getting tough to find anything good, but I had a store of stuff built up. I also raided my father's closet quite often for some truly astoundingly bad stuff.
