Spring Has Sprung and Different Shoes – S3E18


Spring has finally arrived in Ottawa but it feels more like early Summer. On Thursday, it hit close to 20 degrees Celsius. After the snowstorm debacle in March, the warm temperature is a nice relief. The worse part is having to rake the front lawn. I am slowly recovering from my back pain.
On Thursday night, I went to the Born Ruffians with Young Rival and Giant Hand concert at Zaphod Beeblebrox. As you see from the photo on top, it was pretty hot at Zaphod’s. During the Born Ruffians, there were several girls near  jumping and pushing like crazy. It seemed somewhat rowdy during their performance. After leaving Zaphod’s, it was a relief to be outside and cool off.
Oh yea, I wore 3 pairs of shoes in the span of 2 days. I finally wore my adidas shoe. Here’s a link to the past of the shoe, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/1184584939/in/set-72157601587641936/. I bought it in December 2006 and haven’t worn it since. For the shoes I wore for the Born Ruffians concert, it was the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star shoes. I wanted to feel like the Tenth Doctor (Doctor Who). On Thursday morning, I wore the usual Asic blue shoes, which is becoming ripped, worn and wrecked.
As I conclude, how could I forget the photos from the concert, here it is, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157604601892883/. Have a good weekend.

Stars Concert in Ottawa from Thursday Night – S3E17


On Thursday night (April 3, 2008), Stars came to Ottawa for a gig at The Bronson Centre. The funny thing was that my bro and I decided to wait outside of the Bronson Centre at 3pm to get the front row seats. All the wait was somewhat worth it.
Overall, it was a great concert but I thought the sound coming from the mic didn’t come out clearly. Still, the crowd was awesome and loud for Stars. Pictured above are Evan Cranley and Torquil Campbell. It was nice to wait outside at the back of the Bronson Centre and getting some autographs and photos with the members of Stars.
I was also wondering if my friend (shameless plug) who is in Boston had a chance to meet up with Stars when they were performing there. Hmmmm… I wish I could know about it.
Oh! I still love my new Roots hat. Gotta love that Castro/Che, Freedom hat. :)

To finish off this entry, here is a clip from the concert via YouTube. I apologize for the shakiness of the camera.
