up in the stars

Owl City is amazing live. If you like the bubbly beats and sparkly notes of electronica/pop music, definitely check him out. Owl City is the one man band of Adam Young, from Minnesota.

Even though he only played 5 songs, it was truly epic. They sounded more like remixes of his songs, so they were more for dancing. It was his first public show, and he was very nervous. Lots and lots of fun. The kid who played before him, Swimming with Dolphins (also one of Adam's side projects with a friend), was quite good too. There was this cute part where they turned off the back screen and everything, as though if he was done, and he says "Oh, uhm, I think I'm done." He did play another song after that, but it was adorable how nervous & awkward he was.

Anyways, that's all I have to say, actually. I'm going to go watch The Dreamers, a French movie with Louis Garrel. He's one of my favourite actors, and I'm trying to watch all of his films.
