Taylor Swift is a country musician right? We don’t really listen to anyone who has dated John Mayer. Even with our limited knowledge of her past, we did believe that she was mainly a country musician.
Instead of heading to the libraries on campus or downtown, the Clog discovered a quaint library in Elmwood: The Claremont Library. While you can’t necessarily do work — schoolwork and research — there, it’s a great place to read for leisure.
We would like to first apologize for not providing a beautiful photograph of the man himself to enhance this mediocre article (yeah, we know you don’t come here for the writing). Twiggy, as he likes to go by, is a little camera shy per se — maybe he thinks that a photo captures a part of his soul, but then again he doesn’t seem like a Zoolander fan.
Every time we head to San Francisco, we feel like saying “Eureka!” after finding a new place in such unexpected circumstances (also known as a strong desire to pee).
Actually, we were being tourists and heading up to Pier 39 — the piers on the way to Pier 39 don’t offer much to tourists, unless we want take the Amtrak or walk into a dark loading dock — but before we got there decided to go into the historic Ferry Building to find clean public restrooms.
For a little summer learning, we decided to venture to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). The MOMA houses paintings that date back to Matisse to an exhibition of the work of Buckminster Fuller, who was an American engineer to futurist and everything in between.
We are novices in the art world. Actually, we’ve never dabbled in modern art at all. Modern artwork has its stereotypes — ridiculous and silly (these are our’s at least) — but the (MOMA) does feature an eclectic set of paintings, sculptures and exhibitions that can make any amateur can find a stable grounding in (well only if you do it right).
Don’t get us wrong, Pixar knows how to make captivating movies despite the perpetual predictable happy ending. Brave centers around a princess (Disney has decided to be original), whose name was too complicated to remember and who doesn’t like her mom deciding her fate for her. The princess chooses to follow her own fate (literally, there are these apparitions that lead her to her fate) and in doing so makes the decision to change her mom. read more »
The Temper Trap, an Australian indie rock band, recently played in San Francisco at The Warfield. Here are some words of advice we compiled after attending the concert:
It’s around 8 p.m. in San Francisco, and we’re trying to get some food — sandwiches mostly. One would think that Union Square is teeming with authentic cafes and food stands on the streets, but it was an unfortunate discovery to find not one but three closed delis — we weren’t settling for Carl’s Junior. Starving and thus slightly delusional, we ventured into a dim-lit alleyway (something we don’t recommend). In one alleyway by the Westfield Mall however, we were able to find an open restaurant: 54 Mint.
The BART trains failed us last Thursday. We couldn’t make it back to the East Bay. As indicated many times by the scratchy voice of the conductor, Embarcadero Street was our “last stop.”
Even though we couldn’t reach our intended destination, the BART managed to leave us at the mecca of local artists. The San Francisco Arts & Crafts Market at Justin Herman Plaza is held daily throughout the year. For the entire day, local artists sell their unique crafts to the Bay denizens.
We looked at a few local vendors at the fair. read more »
