It's finals and I should be studying instead exploring the world wide web to find interesting stuff to post up on the blog. I leave you with this:

So what about that swine flu guys?

Apparently the world already experienced a swine flu pandemic, in 1976.
What did our nation do about it? They put out these public service announcements to scare the living witts out of everybody. The second ones a little creepy, especially when the lady says "Betty gave it to her best friend Dottie but Dottie had a heart condition and she died". Way to go 1976. Way to go.

H1N1 influenza A

Someone just tweeted this on my facebook homepage and I thought it was clever!

Flying pig

"100 years ago they said the day we have a black president is the day pigs fly...well day 100 of having a black president and..SWINE FLU"

Apparently we're not supposed to call it swine flu anymore though.

90s Ballads

Michael Al-Kudari of some unimportant town near the Amnityville murder house in New York writes:
Can you please make a posting of the top 50 songs of the 90s?

Why not?

1. Criminal by Fiona Apple
Three cheers for the power female vocals of the 1990s. Criminal is a great song with a story of sorts, only made better by Fiona's STUNNING voice. It's really fun to sing/karaoke (a trend amongst my favorite songs).

2. Only In Dreams by Weezer
I adore this song in its entirety: the guitar, the bass, the vocals and lyrics, the instrumental solo parts, the EVERYTHING. Weezer is so underrated. And Island in the Sun is DEFINITELY NOT their best song.
Honorable Mention: Say It Ain't So by Weezer

3. You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette
THE ORIGINAL EMO. This angry love song is timeless. I think it will forever be an icon of the bitter, dumped, betrayed girlfriend.
HONORABLE MENTION: The entire Jagged Little Pill album for that matter has a bunch of best 90s songs.

4. Around the World by Daft Punk
DIDN'T KNOW THIS CAME OUT IN THE 90S DID YOU? Anyway, what good is any music list without Daft Punk.

5. When I Dip You Dip We Dip by Freak Nasty
It was inevitable to NOT hear this song at any dance you attended from the mid-late 90s. And I won't really argue with that because I love this song. The "dance," which involved you and a dance partner alternating dips as per the lyrics, made this song so much better. Corny/awesome as hell when I listen the lyrics now though.
"It’s off to the show in the limo
before the show gotta get that dough
pay them girls what they worth,
slip that money under that skirt
take it off baby let me see
you might get a little more loot chi-chi
string-havin' that's so much fun
playin’ that side, between them buns
shawty got goin' it on like moms
teasin’ me and she know I’m starvin'
lick you up then lick you down
but I ain’t finished girl turn around!
Lick you up and down your back cause
I’m that freak I’m freaky like that
Freak Nasty wanna see can y’all do this
right like me "

7. All For You by Sister Hazel
Really, I think male vocals peaked during the 90s. Singers these days are kind of……unstable (eg. P!ATD, Franz Ferdinand…). God I love this song.

8. What is Love by Haddaway
I can't be sure seeing as I never attended a club or rave during the 90s but I can only hope this is the music they played at clubs. I'm sure it was probably not this and only hardcore techno, but a nightclub that played these 90s electro jams would be so BOSS.

9. Back That Azz Up by Juvenile
This is one of the first (if not, THE first) mainstream success by the Cash Money Millionaires. And I THINK it's one of the best songs ever written (read: exaggeration). But really, there's something special about the lyrics in this song. I feel especially accomplished when I know every word and other people don't. Please note the spelling of "azz" in this song. It is IN FACT the correct spelling (read: lie). And also, this song has some of Lil Wayne's best work if I don't say so myself.
"Girl, you looks good, won't you back that azz up
You'se a fine motherfucker, won't you back that azz up
Call me Big Daddy when you back that azz up
Hoe, who is you playin wit? Back that azz up"….
"Now now now now now
After you back it up, then stop
Then wha-wha-what, drop drop it like it's hot
Now after you back it up, then stop
Now, wha-wha-wha-what drop it like it's hot
Now drop it like it's hot, drop drop it like it's hot
C-M-B make you drop it like it's hot
Drop it like it's hot, drop drop it like it's hot
Drop it like it's hot, drop drop it like it's hot"

10. Killing Me Softly by The Fugees
Let it be known that Lauryn Hill (who in her own right is an AMAZING vocalist) absolutely beasts this song. NEGL, I like this version so much more than the original by Roberta Flack.

11. Follow You Down by The Gin Blossoms
The token theme song in every romantic comedy of the late 90s. At least I feel like it was in every romantic comedy of the late 90s.
Honorable Mention: Found Out About You by The Gin Blossoms

12. My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion

13. I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly
Amongst the many things Space Jam taught me, I Believe I Can Fly is probably the number one thing I took with me. Holy OMG every time I hear this song I just think "STUNNINGNGNGNGNGNNNGGGGGGGSLKJFDL:JSLFJS" and "WHAT A WASTE OF TALENT!!!!!" But damn, I almost can't hate R. Kelly because this song is genius.
Best part of this song: That long note he holds for like a damn year. Trying to hold the note with him. Being able to hold the note without taking a breath. Feeling like you could get signed to a record company. Eternal Bliss ensues.
Honorable Mention: Bump N' Grind (Mainly the epic first thirty seconds of the song)

14. No Scrubs by TLC
My fondest memories of this song are of the music video. ESPECIALLY Left Eye's rap. When I learned that rap, I was probably the proudest child on the playground. RIP Left Eye.


15. Don't Speak by No Doubt
One of the funnest songs to belt out at the top of your lungs.
16. LITHIUM by Nirvana (yes. I went there)
While Smells Like Teen Spirit is a good song, and is generally number one and other (read: ALL) 90s music lists, it is very overrated. I myself and much more fond of Lithium.
Honorable Mention: Come as You Are by Nirvana

17. Make Yourself by Incubus
Brandonnnnnnn oh Brandon. How much do I love thee? So much my love wouldn't even fill the constantly expanding universe.
HONORABLE MENTION: The WHOLE Make Yourself album.

18. Circle of Life from The Lion King
It made Africa mainstream. JK. But how fun is it to try and figure out what the hell is being said in this song.

19. If Your Girl Only Knew by Aaliyah

20. Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera
The first time I heard this song all I could think was STUNNNNNINGGGGG. To this day it is the best Christina song IMO. I mean her sappy new stuff is OKAY, but hoe bubble gum pop Christina was definitely my favorite. SUCH A SUGGESTIVE SONG! "You gotta rub me the right way baby."

21. One of Us by Joan Osborne

22. MMMBOP by Hanson
CLICHÉ, I know. But, oh the joy of being a tween/teen in the 90s. With groups like N'Sync, Backstreet and Hanson there were enough pubescent boys for everyone to share.
Honorable Mention: ALL THE OTHER BOY BANDS. N'Sync and Backstreet Boys mainly. And all of their songs. ESPECIALLY: Everybody and I Want it That Way by Backstreet Boys, and Tearin' up My Heart and I Want You Back by Justin Timberlake and his lackeys.

23. Be My Lover by La Bouche
Won't be your lover, but I'm Gonna Be Blasting Your Song On My Radio. LA DA DADA DE DADA DADA. ICONIC.

24. Beautiful Disaster by 311
God bless the bassist of this band.

25. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
The ongoing life question: Who exactly IS Mr. Jones?

26. Give It To You by Jordan Knight
I just loved this song in my tween days. My grandmother bought me the single for Christmas. I feel so dirty now that I listen to how sexy and offensive the lyrics are. And I can't believe she bought it for me. Awesome song no less.

I swear this video was cutting edge at the time. SO EDGY.

27. Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas
The BEST Disney animated movie song. But I'm still VERYYYYY BITTER about how John Smith and Pocahontas never ended up together. It makes me hate Disney a little bit for creating my perfect fantasy romantic world and SHATTERING IT WITH REALITY IN THE AWFUL SEQUEL.

28. Lovefool by The Cardigans
Love me love me, say that you love me!

29. Will You Be There by Michael Jackson
BRILLANT MJ before his rise to shame. This song was definitely a factor in my love of Free Willy.

30. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
With the unforgettable "I wanna fuck you like an animal" line.

31. Are You That Somebody by Aaliyah
Was I the only nerd or did everyone else have a personal mission to learn the dance in this music video. I was DETERMINED. And I never did FYI.

32. Wash Away Those Years by Creed
A lot of people don't like Creed but I really do enjoy them. Scott Stapp really has a nice voice and the instruments compliment him so well. But this song is especially beautiful. I think I'm just a sucker for the soothing intro. And how fun it is to sing along. Jeez the guitar in this song is gorgeous sounding.

33. Creep by Radiohead

34. Date Rape by Sublime
Little back story: The first time I heard this song was in my art class. Some guy brought his guitar to class and was playing and singing an acoustic version of this song. And I absolutely adored it. I mean the lyrics in this song are ACE. And while it may be a touchy subject, it's not at all an offensive song. I mean it's so realistic and just…narration-lyrical genius. And the acoustic version I heard was slightly better than the original, NGL.
Honorable Mention: What I Got and Santeria by Sublime.

35. Run Around - Blues Traveler

36. Change the World by Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton needs more appreciation by people who were kids in the 90s. My parents listened to him on the REG, and honestly I wasn't having it back then. But I adore him now.

37. Jump Around by House of Pain

38. Headlight by The Wallflowers

39. Everlong by The Foo Fighters
Amazing song. Dave Grohl is an amazing musician and he is so underrated. People always rant and rave about Kurt Cobain but OMG……….I think Dave Grohl is better. I mean the guy went from being drummer in Nirvana to super star guitarist/vocalist/song writer of the Foo Fighters. HE HAS MAD TALENT!!! I went there…At any rate this song is beautiful. And playing it on the guitar is a fun time.

40. Roxanne by The Police
Okay so my favorite part about this song is definitely the lyrics and subject matter. I mean writing about a LEGIT prostitute. It's gutsy and I LOVE IT. I'm also quite fond of the many cover versions of this song. The original is okay, but the covers are awesome as well.

41. Crush by Jennifer Paige

42. Whoomp There It Is by Tag Team

43. No Diggity by Blackstreet
Sick beatz. Love this song.

44. Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio
Remember his crazy hair?
I think I know where Chris got his inspiration.

45. Sex Kills by Joni Mitchell
The title of this song still makes me cackle like an immature asshole. Anyway, it's a political song about society and it'd deep and I love it. Really, do listen to the lyrics.

46. Why Don't You Get A Job? - The Offspring
GET A JOB GET A JOB. Love those 90s unemployed scrubs.

47. Man! I Feel Like a Woman by Shania Twain
I don't usually like country, but Shania has some good material. Can't lie.

48. Macarena by Los Del Rio

49. Barbie Girl by Aqua
I put this song for its pure epicness. I'm not especially fond of the music or vocals or anything but the lyrics make me want to die (in a good way). A song about Barbie and Ken will forever have a place in my 90s child heart. I'm sad there was no love for Chelsea or Teresa though.

50. The Pokemon Theme Song by Jason Paige
And so Japan takes over American television. This is actually one of my favorite TV themes. I know you know the lyrics as well as I do. It's iconic!

51. My Boo by Ghost Town DJs
I forgot about this one and had to add it. LOVE THIS SONG.


Okay this was hard as F. I don't ever want to do this again!!!! Everytime I had to eliminate a song from the list I felt sincerely bad for it and the anxiety is too much for me.

Aqua Globes? Forget that!

I was over at Apartment Therapy and they had this cute idea for whenever you don't have time to water your plants. Just buy these terracotta stakes, plug a water-filled bottle of wine in and stick it into your plant's soil. The terracotta will naturally absorb the water, and when it gets to its saturation point, the water will slowly leak out and water your plant! Much better than those silly Aqua Globes in my opinion. Plus, it's a great way to recycle!


Okay so it REALLY grinds my gears when I'm wasting away my life on Youtube and I happen upon some awesome video full of LULZ or talent or amazing or fail and I just want to share it on WotS. But OH WAIT, the snob who made the video has disabled embedding. What is so bad about embedding a video?


I mean, when I post it on my page I'm sharing it with other people. And from there they can click the video and go to the original page, favorite and comment if they want. Yada yada. And whenever someone views the video on my page, the video views still count on your video. I feel like embedding actually gets people THOUSANDS more views.

Why do you make it hard for me to put videos on my blog UNIVERSALMUSICGROUP. You know what...It's okay because your music sucks ANYWAY. I'll just post videos of artists who like to SHARE their work with other people. So screw you UNIVERSALMUSICGROUP and your "embedding disabled by request" nonsense. I hope your future videos only get 100 views because no one can share them with their friends. And your profile page looks STUPID.

Seven deadly sins of America

Geographers over at Kansas State University have broken down every county/parish into their different degrees of sin commitance. Each sin was matched up with their counter-part statistical data.

Greed: Average income

Envy: Total number of thefts

Wrath: Amount of violent crimes

Lust: Number of sexually transmitted diseases

Gluttony: Number of fast food restaurants per capita

Sloth: $$ spent on arts, entertainment and recreation in comparison with employment

Pride: An overall average of all the other 6 sins

The website also lists the top 10 sinners of each deadly sin. Does anyone find it totally random that Shreveport, LA is in everyone of those top ten?

I wanna go swimming in this pool

I woke up this morning and found an open window, left for me from my brother, on my computer. It was of these pictures of the world's deepest pool, which resides in Brussels, Belgium. The deepest part of the pool is 33 meters/108 feet deep. Whoever owns this pool, can you please throw diving scavenger hunt parties in it? And please invite me. K thanks.

This video is awesome in a "WDF did I just SEEN" kind of way.

I'm peeing in my pants right na na na

Remember this little diddy?

WELL IT'S COME TO LIFFEEEE!!! YES, the first mac virus. Ugghh I thought that at least one thing in the computer world was going to safe from the vicious grips of viruses, but I GUESS NOT. The world is coming to an end! Viruses are taking over!!! Okay, so maybe I'm blowing this wayyy out of proportion and mayyybbbeee the article quoted a computer expert who made the following statement:

"It's a very low-level attack, some people won't even notice the effect of it."

But, hey, this is just the beginning of the trojan terror! I don't know if you know or not but my biggest fear of all time: computer viruses. Oh you poor, poor mac owners. Welcome the pc world. Welcome to my world.

I don't usually like motivational posters but...

For some reason I got a real kick out of these:

BAHAHHAAH look at that dog!! Bahahahahha!! Anyways... if you think you're clever enough and want to make some of your own, holla right here! Also check out the whole website in general. It's a fun way to waste time.

I ALMOST don't even want to promote this.

Date: JUNE...2009.
Venue: Club Ampersand. New Orleans. Louisiana. United States of America. Earth. Milky Way. ...
1. STEVE AOKI on the 13th.

Light skin, dark skin, my ASIAN PERSUASION

The awesome thing about Steve Aoki is that he's like BFFs with the Cobrasnake. And the Cobrasnake travels with him everywhere. So maybe I can meet the Cobrasnake and he'll make me famous like Cory Kennedy. And then I'll get to meet Cole Mohr. Steve Aoki is also BFFs with the likes of MSTRKRFT who are also pretty awesome. And his dad owns a sushi restaurant franchise thing. And his sister is a famous model who was also in Tokyo Drift. LKF.

2. BENNY BENASSI on the 24th.


The awesome thing about Benny Benassi is that he made the song "Satisfaction." And "I Love My Sex." And "Inside of Me."

Age: 18+ (Put your hands up for New Orleans. I LOVE THIS CITY).
Price: So cheap I'm ACTUALLY offended. Tickets in Miami for Benny Benassi run AT LEAST $60. Divide that by....6-ish. I know.

So basically it's going to be EPIC. I'm SOOOOOO going to be there. There's no way I can miss Satisfaction live.

Hear Hear: New David Guetta

With...Get this....KELLY ROWLAND on vocals! Of Destiny's Child fame....

Okay just a heads up, the intro is slow but the song gets kind of awesome like half way through. It's definitely not "Love is Gone" though...which I guess is the "chorus" of the song.

Anyway, Is it just me or does Kelly sound like Jordin Sparks or someone?

You're plastic. Cold, shiny, hard plastic.

Check out these rad Nalgene flasks. Each flask holds up to 12 oz, comes with an insulation sleeve, and even features a 1 oz cap, which is coincidentally the same amount in a small shot of alcohol. Who's gonna care about bisphenol-A when they're getting their drank on with their oh-so-fab Nalgene flasks. Yay Nalgene junkies!!




Just Saying: Last time I got free ice cream at Ben and Jerry's, I also got free tickets to Kanye West's Glow in the Dark tour. JUST SAYING. You might wanna hit it up.

Life Post: Memorial

This weekend, in my never-ending effort to take be an amazing photographer, I visited the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach. Now, now, don't jump to conclusions. Memorials don't sound exciting at all, but the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach is the MOST INTRIGUING memorial...hell it's the most intriguing ANYTHING I've ever seen. Judge for yourself.

Freedom Awaits's hard to drive past that....100 foot hand coming out of the ground. Oh but it gets better. It's hard to see in this picture, but all of that texture on the arm.....HUMAN BODIES. The most morbid sculpture I've ever seen......and I feel awkward for thinking so but it's also absolutely beautiful and stunning.

There's this beautiful blue pond around the hand. The water is so still it reflects the hand like a mirror. There's also a walkway that goes around the hand with a marble wall with people's names carved into (standard procedure for a memorial I feel like). But the experience is just breathtaking. There are flowering trees all around the pond. And the petals just fall right into the water and just float's like a scene straight out of a movie.

Path of Names

Anyway, from first glance it looks like the hand is sitting in the middle of the pond and there's no way for people to go up to the hand. As seen in the first picture...there's a huge wall around the hand as well. But as I'm walking around (through the walkway above) I realize there's a door that lets people go to the hand...up close and personal. And I knew there were bodies carved into the hand...but I was not prepared for the EXTENT of the bodies.

Send Me Salvation
This is the pathway that leads you to the hand. The cuts in the walls create a beautiful light and shadow pattern.

A Glimpse
Through the cuts you could catch little glimpses of the pond and walkway with all of the trees. Once again absolutely stunning (stunning is my new word) and ingenious. You feel kind of like a prisoner in this hallway where you only get a small view of the beauty that is outside the walls. Likely a reference to the way prisoners must have felt in the camps.

And on these walls there are the names of all the concentration camps (also standard procedure for a Holocaust memorial I believe). There are speakers built into the wall and there are children singing Jewish songs through the speakers....It was a little it unnerving....especially with that little statue in front of the arm. And I mean, I was here BY was a little bit uncomfortable.

a Lone girl
The mix of the song and this statue and being alone made it a little tough for me to take pictures.

So once I get over the emotional trauma of this hallway, I make my way to the hand. Oh dear God, when I say I was NOT PREPARED FOR IT...I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR IT.

The Base
The sculptur of this project has guts. And they are an absolute genius. I walked out to see the arm and I was terrified. I can only imagine that's the way you are supposed to feel. It took me a good 5 minutes to be able to walk around because I was so scared. I even had to call my mom. Not ONLY were the bodies on the arm, but also ON THE GROUND. ON MY EYE LEVEL. They are so real it feels like they will start moving around at any moment. It was seriously, TERRIFYING. And those children were STILL singing in the background.

Seriously, the designers of this memorial were absolutely ON POINT in everything. I'm pretty emotionally detached from...everything...but OMG.....this was too much for ME.

The Infant
At any rate, once I was able to calm down a little bit I could get closer to the sculpture and photograph it. But it was hard. The statues were literally life sized. It was an awful feeling.

The Arm
Here's the view up the arm. Absolutely STUNNING.

Anyway, I took lots of pictures. And I left a different person. Well not really, but the memorial is ACTUALLY one of my favorite buildings on this planet now. It's so simple, but so genius. And if you're ever in Miami then I would definitely visit it. But go on a sunny day because it is absolutely BREATH TAKING and STUNNING.

While We're On the Subject of "Chic-O-Nomics"

As a reader of "Word on the Sidewalk" I, Golden Hot Pants, OFFICIALLY invite you to join THE GILT GROUPE.

(Because you should feel guilty to buy designer clothes at such DISCOUNT PRICES).

I actually posted the link in our "awesome pages you should always visit" box to the right a few weeks ago. But was too lazy to make a post about. HOWEVER, now I am inspired. SOOO...Basically it's a group that puts up a new sale every day....or every few days. And the clothes are SOOOOO DISCOUNTED that you need to be invited to join.

SO. BY CLICKING THIS LINK, you have been invited and can join...THE GILT GROUPE. And get relatively cheap designer clothes.

I'M JUST SAYING: A few weeks ago there were Christian Louboutins for $130-$230. I died a little inside when the black leather pumps I've wanted for so long were sold out. Dear God, if I had seen this sale earlier in the semester, fresh off of my Christmas vacation paycheck, I would own like...multiple pairs of Louboutins.

Wow. My spellchecker says Louboutin is not a real word. FALSE. ADD TO DICTIONARY SPELL CHECKER.

They also sell...Marc Jacobs.....Michael Kors was on there....Nina Ricci (I wish they would sell the platforms from her FW09 collection because they are trannytastic and FURCE)....Diane von Furstenburg....Vera Wang.......Yeah they have A LOT of different designers. The only way to know is to join! So JOIN NOW.

Nina "Gah-cia" approves of the Gilt Groupe.
And these FURCE ladies are wearing Louboutin...just sayin'

For all you Net-A-Porter lovers

Ya, I'm late and haven't been on top of my fashion news game, but for those of you who don't already know, Net-A-Porter has created their own outlet site, cleverly named The Outnet. Fashionologie posted about how the website is such a disappointment being stocked with last season's merchandise, even though the site claimed to have new stuff on there, but hellooooo OUTLET. DESIGNER CLOTHES. SALE. That's good enough for me.

DO WANT, But....


This look from the Balmain SS 2009 collection has just been tearing it up left and right. FIRST, there was a huge frenzy around the jeans. (Which, yes they are cute. I think most of the love comes from how amazing they look on Anna S, the model. Because really you could get something like this from Hollister or make them yourself easy enough).

But the real amazing-ness of this look are the shoes and the jacket. Oh Lord have mercy Kelly Clarkson Eddie Murphy THAT JACKET. I DO WANT.

Here's someone from the Paris Vogue team rocking the another, kind of different, SS09 Balmain military jacket in denim. She is WORKING IT. Jackets are so fierce.

Here's Queen Beyonce ALSO working that jacket. It's a happy break from her usual style because she usually looks a hot, gaudy, mess.

And here is the website that sells the jacket.


This was my face for like 5 minutes when I saw the pricetag.

REALLY BALMAIN? CUT A GIRL A BREAK! I can handle $3,000...maybe $4,000 (not to BUY myself but I mean I think those are reasonable prices for FABRIC AND BUTTONS). But $11,000. I do want that jacket, but REALLY?

That's like....half a Mini Cooper right there. It's like 85% of a Mini Cooper from 2003.

A sweet little Hawk family set up a nest around one of the dorms at my school. And apparently as people walk by the nest they've had encounters with the hawk (Ie. "I was walking and I felt something hit my head. When I looked up a hawk was flying away from me.")

But it gets even better. There's a security guard who has to escort students walking through the hazard zone with an umbrella so they don't get attacked by the hawk.

I might have to find an excuse to go there because this is too good to be true.

Did Your Mom Teach You To Park Like That?


I just have to wonder...Do they REALIZE half of their car is on the curb? GRANTED, the parking spaces are really small, but still!


But at least they didn't double park, I guess.


I go to Google's Image Search and they have a new little blurb with pandas and rainbows on the front page.


Is this supposed to be April Fools because it's DISAPPOINTING.
The original panda and rainbow is so much better.


Hear Hear: LMFAO

LMFAO...greatest band name ever.

Miami Goes to New Orleans

AHHH! My two cities are joining together....

This past weekend was the WMC, or Winter Music Conference for those who don't know. Basically it's like the trade show for DJs and it is AMAZING (if you're 21 and have lots of spare cash). Literally, EVERY DJ in the world is in Miami for the WMC weekend and there are events left and right and it's crazy. So much going on that you might actually have to make a sacrifice to see someone. (Eg. Do I see Bob Sinclar or David Guetta because they're both playing on the same night). It's amazing.

I can't personally report on the deets because:
a) The DJs are MAJOR acts so a ticket to one of their club shows is about $300 or
b) Getting into the clubs is HARD because EVERYONE wants to get in. Unless you're buying a VIP table and lots of $100 bottles....I'm going to say getting VIP will set you back ATLEAST $400 dollars....chances of getting in are slim.
c) The events are 21+ and on South Beach. And even with an "ID" it's HARD to get into South Beach clubs because they are STRICT.

And outside of the events there is Ultra Music Festival which is for any and everyone. It is probably one of the greatest music festivals on this planet (provided you like nightclubs). For a mere $200 you can enjoy 2 days of DJs, crowds, and overpriced water. And the crowd isn't a normal crowd....I'd say 95% of the people are on some kind of psychadelic/hardcore drug. (Ultra fest aka Ultra ECSTACY Fest). But really it's great. Next time I have $200 lying around in March I'm going for sure.

WMC ASIDE, Club Amperstand is having a "WMC in New Orleans" event. It's destined to be sick because the WMC in essence is GREAT. Attend it!!! Thankfully people in New Orleans have a heart and probably won't charge you $300 to get in.

I don't know who Trent Cantrelle is...but whatever. Live shows are the best kind.
