Random day

So, today I went out with the plan of going to galleries and the museum and whatnot, but I only made it as far as the Frye.

I randomly met this girl Clara who goes to Mills and we went to the new library (which I hadn't seen before). We found a closed computer room with a projector and I showed her and her friend some videos. I was surprised but pleased that there was a room with a projector just open and usable. It was very much like the setup used at Reed, so I was familiar with the setup and got the equipment working in no time.

I was supposed to keep going to more art exhibits with Amber, but I never heard from her. So, instead I went and hung out with this girl at her friend's apartment and then went and saw The Kills at the Crocodile. I hadn't heard them before and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, Clara was being really obnoxious most of the night at the show (perhaps it was the drinkin') and so I ended up leaving her there. Oh well, good show and I looked at the gallery listings and I'm going to try to see as much as I can tomorrow between noon and 5 (which is when most of the places I'm interested in are open) before I head to the BYOA show. Hopefully Ivar will come into town before then so I can use the projector he might be able to bring to project some video. Otherwise I really don't have anything with me. After the art gathering I'm planning on going to the Sunset Tavern to see Explosions in the Sky, Mono, and Eluvium, which is why Ivar will be coming up. It will be good to see him, even though I just left Portland on wed, and I'll be going back on monday.

If anyone else is interested in going gallery hopping tomorrow during the know the drill.
