Off to see Joanna Newsom.
New Noah and the Whale album??
March of 2011? How did I not know this? D:
The Work in Progress at UCLA
was very good. I saw some pretty talented students and some… no so talented haha But Kayla did very well! She did three dances, each of which I enjoyed. It was especially nice just seeing her for the first time since Sunday. After, her family and I went to lunch, then drove home. Good day. (Also, I didn’t get any good pictures… my replacement camera din’t work well...
Of Montreal Man, when watching this all I can think is “Inevitably I’m going to end up showing my kids this one day and they’re going to think I’m fucking weird.” Nevertheless, I love Of Montreal. Never cease to amaze me.
Well I'm off
Kayla’s parents are coming to pick me up soon. I’m very excited to see her dance :D
The desert I live in was on fire last night
Literally, not figuratively. There were fires right outside my town and a lot of people I know were evacuated. Luckily no one was hurt and very little was damaged. The sky was illuminated with a red an orange glow as ashes fell from the sky like snowflakes. I counted the firetrucks speeding by, seven at a time. Firetrucks from all around: Glendale, Pasadena, Manhattan Beach, Burbank, Montclair,...
My girlfriend, Kayla
has been at UCLA the past week working her legs off in her dance class and I will be attending her Work In Progress today with her parents. I am extremely proud of her and can’t wait to see her beautiful face. I think I’ll take a picture or two :)
Netflix is fantastic
Not only do they have “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” available to watch instantly, but I also found a movie called “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead.” In the description it says the plot has something to do with the actors of the play becoming like… vampires… or something? I don’t know. I doubt I’ll ever watch it. But it made me...
KATY PERRY IS DOING THE VOICE FOR SMURFETTE
which is really funny to me for some reason.
I am terrified
of college applications. Any time I look up a college or things to help me get accepted, whatever, I feel like I’m going to throw up. It’s intimidating. Especially because the criteria seems so impossible to meet. I really don’t think I have what it takes to get anywhere I want to go.
I was made captain
of my high school’s Cross Country team last week along with my friend Jeremy and another runner Jeo. I’ve been working toward this goal since Freshman year, so I’m feeling really good about myself.
I was told recently
that the San Diego music festival Street Scene would not be happening this year. So I looked it up and it is true. And so, Jacob was a very sad boy. Maybe I can go to Fuck Yeah Fest instead…
Google changed its format recently
And I do not like it. It’s very cluttered.
Hello there, Interweb
I might as well start by introducing myself. My name is Jake Irvin, I am 17 year old, and I have lived in a desert around the LA county so far for my entire life. I’m pretty much using tumblr as my own semi-personal, semi-public journal. So my interests and such will develop over time. Here’s my life.
