This blog has been keeping track of my adventures since 2004. The stories and the adventures have come from my college dorm room to Uganda, Peace Corps Kyrgyzstan, learning Dutch in the Netherlands to living in the wilds of Homer, Alaska. I went back to school in Amsterdam to study Theaterwetenschap (Theatre Science) at University of Amsterdam. And now my adventures as a Fruit Fly, a Sexy Unicorn, and creating a movement with Team Sparkle in Chicago.

Walk away

I saw a guy today listening to a walkman. Like a proper Walkman. Remember those? With a tape cassette and everything. He was just standing there. Doing a little knee jiggle with the music but otherwise not aknowledging this archaiac music listening device. I would talk more about this but my record is skipping and I should go take care of that.

    Hahaha... love it.

    A while back I saw a dude carrying a boom box on his shoulder while walking down the road. Like, a huge boom box from the 80s. Rockin out with his bad self.

    The memory will stay with me for years to come...

    We were talking about busting out the dual tape deck Aiwa stereo that I used to "burn" tapes off of. So if you need any copies of some cassettes, I might be able to hook you up.
