Back from Barcelona

11.2007.barcelona.spain 296

I'm back from Barcelona for a few days to have Thanksgiving with my family before I turn around and leave for Florence.  Barcelona was incredible, probably one of my favorite cities - the food, the way the city is run, the people, the atmosphere, the attitude - I could easily see enjoying a month there instead of a few nights.  Above links to my whole picture album, and here is a direct link to the slide show.

Gym Class Heroes Cover Arctic Monkeys at MSG

Last week I went to see Gym Class Heroes and Fall Out Boy at Madison Square Gardens.  Whatever you think of Gym Class Heroes, they are phenomenal performers - it may have  helped that they are from New York, but they were charged up for every song, engaged the crowd, and generally went turned up every song in some way or another.  At one point they covered the Arctic Monkeys song "Leave Before the Lights Come On", which was the highlight of the night for me.  Fall Out Boy was also great, and covered "Mr. Brightside" by the Killers, but our recording didn't come out very well.


No blogging - traveling all of November!

I won't get much time to write in November (as you've probably noticed) - I'm in Spain now, and will be in Italy soon enough. In the mean time I'll update periodically through Twitter (which you can see on the right of my blog, or on Facebook). Have a good month!


View from the top of the Empire State Building

11.2007.new york.empire state building. 031

Today I went to the top of the Empire State Building for the first time since moving to New York City, or in my adult memory for that matter.  It's one of those things you reserve for tourists, or for when you'll have to to show a visitor around (today I brought my friends from Idaho there), but it really was cool getting to look out on the whole city.  We went at the perfect time - a little before sunset fell - which got us up to the top before all of the major evening crowds hit.  I definitely recommend spending the $19 (for adults) on a nice day and making your way up there, and in the mean time you can check out my photos.


Will Spencer Combines Skateboarding with Parkour

William Spenser, a Youtube phenom who just signed with MTV for a skateboard show based on his video clips, is flat out impressive.  I don't think it's fair to call it parkour because it seems to lack the same physical and mental discipline, but his ability to do pull off even flips and land on skateboards is incredible.
