Trans Siberian & Winning Nanowrimo – I hate circus-like Narrators

I always loved the Trans Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas songs, such as the most famous ones like “Wizards” and their amazing Carol of The Bells, and I’m a huge fan of the concept that electric violins and guitars with a 25-piece drum sets and synthesizers as well as many other amazing musical instruments can all be apart of one amazing orchestra-like musica group. So, I thought this was a pretty decent musical group and I thought Wednesday (the day before our beloved Tofurkey day, the day of the concert) was just going to be an enjoyable evening overall. Little did I know it was going to be a spiritual intervention. I am a new person.  There was an amazing tech crew (fireworks, smoke, ‘snow’, fire, amazing lights, people coming down from the ceilings, different stages and levels, laser-like lights, the list goes on and on and on and on and…)  as well as AMAZING performers with great talent and you could so tell they were all simultaneously spazzing out with adrenaline rushes. I was so close to the stage and our tickets were only $56 each – expensive, I thought at first, but now I see how packed it was, how ah-mazing it was, and now I see that we got a deal. It. Was. Awesome

There was one single negative bad thing about this show though – A terribly annoying male narrator with a awkward and extremely extremely (alien-like almost) low voice chimed in with narritives in between every song for the entire first half of the concert! Gr. Rawr. He ruined that first half for me (almost). He sounded as if he belonged in a circus…rawr

The night ended with a lovely stroll through Borders (my favorite chain bookstore ever, and loose far too much money to it) and a Javanilla Shake (my favorite, yummeh!)

Tofurkey day was lovely. Usual. Thanks. Giving. Etc. 😀

I WON NANOWRIMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still, I have yet to finish my novel.

I’m getting there though 😀

MGMT

MGMT is an amazing band. they rockz. Check ’em out. Their amazing, calming yet exhilarating! Synth – Indie rock yet still sounding so acoustic. Unlike anything I’ve ever heard before, and I love them sooo much! So of my personal Favorite songs include Kids, Indie Rokkers, Electric Feel, Time to Pretend, Boogie Down, and all these songs remixes, but everything by this ah-mazing group is awesome!

Formerly called Management, they shortened it to MGMT and that is their official band name now. They formed in upstate New York, and now look at them, rising stars! (They rock out loud!)

Their websites (you can listen to many tracks, get merchandise, learn random crap, etc.) http://www.whoismgmt.com/

Enjoy them. Love them. Rock out to them while your in the shower and almost slip and fall, then catch yourself but knock down shampoo bottles in the process and cause everyone else to wonder what the heck is going on in there. MGMT rocks out loud!

Also. another thing, my imaginary readers – I ask of you: What are some of your favorite up and coming Indie Synth Rock bands?!?!!

Just a flesh wound…

Eekers oh how I love Monty Mython…

oh shizzle is my geek showing?

naw, can’t be…. darn yes it is. sigh……

In other news, I have a huge essay composition due abt Faith through the Holocaust – a rather huge and diverse subject to cover if you ask me, but it’s due uber soon so there is no time for change now. So, if anyone out there has any info about this what-so-ever, let me know.

Oh wait, I forgot, no one reads this blog. Shizzle.

Often

How often does one make blog posts?

a is the usual, everyday, every week, every other weekend, every 2 hours?!?!

Hey buddies, check out my quotablequotes page. I was thinking of adding my own page of Phrases and Philosophies page, make use of cyber space, go all Oscar Wilde on you all.

In other news, (in case my zero readers are wondering), I am going to a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert around Thanksgiving with my family, then pretty soon I’m heading to a MGMT concert 😀 Go music! I love going to concerts, thought that doesn’t happen very much:(

In other news – Nanowrimo it up baby!!!:D

Fred

I have Duke Ellington playing. Believe it or not I had befriended an older man who is related to my dad’s girlfriend somewhere along the line, he was suffering terribly from alzheimer’s disease, and I always had to play duke ellington around him because he thought he was back in WW2 sometimes. He told me to keep the music volume soft, or the Nazi Youth might catch us for listening to swing. He was great. He died last week. Fred was a great guy, but he was lost a while ago. This is why I’m listening to Duke Ellington.

National Novel Writing Month: Nanowrimo – Do it!

For all you people even remotely creative in any way, shape or form, I have found the perfect brain marathon for you. Write a novel by November 30th. That’s right folks, Nation Novel Writing Month is upon us, and as I have joined late, I’m only on 6,000 words when by tonight I should be at 13k!!! The terror.

So, my book may just be the worst novel ever written, but at least you can say you finished it! You won NaNoWrimo!!! Nanowrimo forces anyone at any age writing in literally any genre imaginable to write, as some people (such as myself) have trouble at finishing many things. I myself am also a huge procrastinator, otherwise I get nothing done, so this ‘race’ (call it what you will) shall be nerve wrecking and very interesting. For me. And you too if you just start already!

And for you non-creative folk… go eat some funions and watch Napolaen Dynomite… I have no idea what you people spend your time doing!

I suggest you all go to nanowrimo.org

They also have many other months, as in April I’m entering the Script writing frenzy!!!

Enjoy, goodluck to all!

Adrianne awkwardly starts a blog

Hi! My blogic is not too spiffy, but in the days, weeks, months, years, decades (who knows?) I’m sure I’ll pick up a thing or two.

So this is the very first of the very great Adrianne blog posts. What will I write about you ask?

That’s a very respectable question, and one might certainly want to know this first and foremost. However, I myself don’t know the answer to that yet, so I’ll tell you nonsense about myself instead!

There once was a  highschooler by the name Adrianne Adams who misprized the fidelity of bloggers and cyberspace-addicts alike to their hobbies, until one day she found she too was an addict of te internet, just in different ways. After many moons had passed, she discovered the key to making it to the upper upper east side of internet city was to create a blog.  Tada. Ah-mazing I know. My intrests lie within a vast number of categories, from writing to TV, from music that nobody’s heard of to music that half the population of the world has heard of, from filmmaking to freaking out about my day to day life and how it effects the long run that is The Trials of Adrianne.

Adios mis amigos!
