We used to watch it every Thanksgiving growing up. The house smelled of turkey and my sister and I would be watching the parade and drawing while watching the floats go past.
We only went to the parade once. It was probably one of the coldest Thanksgivings I remember. I was 13 and we got up early to get on the train. We found a spot towards the beginning of the parade so it wasn’t as crowded. I remember climbing up on the base of a lamp post to see the parade better. Snoopy was always my favorite float.
Right behind where we were standing, there was a coffee shop, so we went in there and drank hot chocolate while watching the parade from the inside.
I don’t watch the parade often now, but today I’ve been watching. The best part was that the PARADE GOT RICKROLLED! And it was awesome. Some puppet even said, “I love Rickrolling!” I had to sit through Miley Cyrus but it was worth it.Filed under Music, nostalgia, videos | Comment (0)
I think I must have.
Our neighbor has construction people doing work on their house, and all day I’ve been hearing 90s music. Here are a few songs I’ve heard:
- That “Paranoia, Paranoia, everybody’s coming to get meee…” song.
- “Wonderwall” by Oasis
- “When I Come Around” by Green Day
- “Ironic” by Alanis Morisette
- “Criminal” by Fiona Apple
- “No Rain” by Blind Melon
Currently playing is “Jumper” by Third Eye Blind.
I feel like I’m 16. And actually, my skin is really broken out today, so I even look like I did with 16. Ha. Zits.Filed under Music, nostalgia | Comment (0)
Last night Matt and I saw Elvis Costello and The Police at Great Woods (I’m just calling it Great Woods, because I can’t keep up with the ever-changing corporate names of these venues) and we had a lot of fun. Andy Summer seemed a little weird, though. Matt and I got the vibe that maybe he was mad at Sting for some reason. Elvis rocked well, as always, playing a mix of new and old.
It rained a little, but it always rains when we go to Great Woods, and I never shell out the dough to be seated under the pavilion. We watched Steely Dan during a torrential downpour a few years ago, and when Matt dragged me to a Rush concert, there was a thunderstorm. (I was also miserable because I had hives all over my legs!!)
Anyway, it took us an HOUR to get out of the parking lot. It was absolutely insane. We just sat in our car in the parking lot for a half hour because it was obvious we weren’t going anywhere. Then we slowly made our way out of the lot and on to 495. 495 was trafficky from the concert, too!!
Had a nice time though..I always enjoy seeing Elvis Costello and seeing The Police was a lot of fun. How does Sting still hit those high notes? I can barely sing that high!
I left feeling rather nostalgic after hearing music from my childhood!Filed under Music | Comment (1)
A week or two ago, we saw that our neighbor was throwing out a clavinet. Matt was intrigued, so he asked her if he could have it. Our neighbor sort of looked at Matt like he was crazy, and said, “Of course, take it if you want!”
Matt looked the clavinet up on eBay and bidding for it started at $800!!!
Matt’s going to keep it, though. It’s in full working order and he could probably put it to good use while recording.Filed under Music | Comment (0)
