Monday Musings + Tremendous Wholesome Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1. I used to be in a position to snag a “digital ticket” to the Thirty Seconds to Mars dwell streaming live performance from Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC through VyRT  final Wednesday.

For a mere $15.00, us ticket holders had been in a position to watch behind-the-scenes preparations + informal interviews with (from left to proper) Tomo Miličević, Jared Leto, & Shannon Leto…

… in addition to the complete live performance, which after all was superior! I’ve been an enormous fan of this band for some time now, and jumped on the likelihood to see them carry out dwell.

Though I might have cherished to have been there in individual, watching the live performance dwell from my front room was the following most suitable choice.

Right here’s a clip from one in all my favourite 30STM songs, Alibi. Within the brief video I recorded, you’ll be able to see the setup – my laptop hooked as much as our T.V. and stereo. The sound was nice! Extra bands ought to broadcast live shows like this.

A number of different favourite 30STM songs of mine:

  • 100 Suns
  • Nearer To The Edge
  • The Kill

  • the loopy Walmart girl
  • the even crazier Goal girl
  • the obnoxious T.J. Maxx & Marshalls carolers perusing the mall for over-spenders

You recognize what I’m speaking about. Proper?

5. This, my pals, is an habit in a jar:

When you haven’t but tried it for your self, I’m positive you’ve seen it on different blogs… so that you’ve in all probability already been warned about how unimaginable it’s to maintain a spoon your fingers out of it.
