Do you know what the sound of over a 100,000 people jumping at the same time is?
IT SOUNDS LIKE A CANNON OR A BOMB WENT OFF.
The Rally to Restore Sanity was basically simultaneously the most hilarious and most inspiring thing I’ve been to. Stewart and Colbert both were hilarious and knew exactly what they were doing, but Stewart’s closing remarks really hit me. He’s such an insightful person when he wants to be- everything he said I’ve been thinking, only less eloquently. It’s a bit idealistic, sure, but really, why CAN’T we all just get along? You go, then I go. Coexist.
Also, I stood for over five hours straight today and woke up at 7 after listening to the guys being loud in the basement while I was in a bedroom UPSTAIRS. (Later I learned they were flipping mattresses over on Keith. O-kay.) I feel like passing out. XD
Pictures to follow. Most of my rally pictures are of amusing signs and whatnot, but last night I took some gorgeous shots of D.C. and the Rally to Restore Sanity stage at night.
So. Excited. Will be spamming photos of it Saturday evening, no doubt.
And I WILL be going in every possible inch of W&M-related attire I have. Hey, anything that might POSSIBLY help me meet Jon Stewart will be done. Plus, have to represent the College and teenagers as a whole, as apparently the bulk of people going fall into the ages of 24-29.
I cannot express in words how amazing this will be.
My dad, talking about an experiment, while using a ruler to demonstrate what he’s saying: So, you test someone’s reflexes three ways. First, they’re told to drop the ruler then use sight to catch it; then, by sound, as they drop it then someone tells them ‘Now!’ so they know to catch it, and then by touch… well, I don’t actually know how to touch myself- (realizing what he just said) Well, I’m going to go sit down and pretend that never happened now.
(Honest to god. If Shit My Dad Says wasn’t already taken, I could be RICH. It’d be the geeky, science-y version. So basically what happens when Shit My Dad Says and The Big Bang Theory collide.)
As of today, the ISS surpassed Mir’s record for longest continuous human presence in space. The ISS’ll have been in space for a decade (a DECADE!!) as of October 31st.
Maybe the ISS hasn’t produced the ‘OMG WORLD SHATTERING SCIENCE BREAKTHROUGHS!’ that everyone seemed to expect from it, but c’mon. We made a goddamn space station, through international cooperation with a ton of nations, INCLUDING our former bitterest enemy. That’s pretty awesome.
Yes, I am definitely asking for the package for Christmas, it would be a good Christmas present for me.
Yes, I love "Hidden Away"!! I got it as a free download too for signing up for the email list and it's just awesome. I just listened to it again a few minutes ago.
What are some of your favorite Josh songs? I love "Oceano", "To Where You Are", "Weeping" and "February Song". I love all of them though.
My family is well aware of my obsession, so, they know what they must do. (They got me Josh’s Noel as a HANUKKAH present, after all. XD)
And ooohhhman. Favorites? They’re all favorites! Seconding basically all of those and adding “You Are Loved” (always puts me in a good mood), “So She Dances”, “The Prayer”, and “Un Giorno Por Noi”, and then basically ANYTHING he sings in Chess. “Anthem” and “Where I Want to Be” are particularly good. (I also love Adam Pascal and Idina Menzel, so, Chess is basically an entire squeefit for me.)
I LOVE JOSH GROBAN.
you are quality already.
Are you excited for his new album? I can't wait. I want to get the Special Fan Edition, it looks pretty awesome.
Well, have a lovely rest of the week. :D
THE ANSWER IS NO, I CANNOT WAIT. 8D
I truly want the Special Fan Edition as well (since I missed out on the Chess Special Edition by… a day. DX), but I’ve been told I’m not allowed to buy/preorder ANYTHING as it’s a Prime Holiday Gift Idea (caps needed). Gaah. I just want it. I take it you’ve listened to Hidden Away?
Most of you ambled over here as sent from Gracie (sliceoflife), I imagine? Well, welcome. n.n
Interests of mine that she didn’t happen to list would be Pokemon, Kingdom Hearts, JOSH GROBAN, musicals, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a variety of geeky-science things (spaceprogramspaceprogramspaceprogram).
So yeah. I ought to be at least moderately amusing. XD
