I finally got around to listening to them tonight, after hearing a few of my friends and a ton of people on the internet constantly praise them.. and I must say… They sound like a sub par version on the Weakerthans.. I was expecting more.. Anyhow, they helped me pass an hour or two repainting a room in my basement..
Just got done with my first class. My instructor is some young hipster design guru, who is teachng his first class. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but I’m erring on the side of good being his work and credentials seem pretty legitimate.. Anyhow, this semester is going to kill me, I can already tell… and all I want to do is go home and see my pup. I feel bad leaving her alone for several hours being this is only her second full day at my place.. Oh yeah, and I finally decided on a name for her.. Annabel Lee it is..
Barricades surrounding a park that served as a camp for Occupy Wall Street protesters were removed Tuesday, allowing protesters to stream back in.
The atmosphere was celebratory but calm on Tuesday evening as about 300 protesters began filling New York City’s Zuccotti Park a couple of hours after the barricades were taken down and a day after a complaint about the barricades was filed with the city.
Some Occupy protesters planned to stay overnight, DiGioia said, but it was unclear whether they planned to use tents or sleeping bags, which have been banned from the lower Manhattan park since an early morning police raid evicted protesters Nov. 15.
Protester Jeff Brewer said he tried to erect a tent but it was quickly taken down by security guards.
