Spring is Here: II

I realize I am a little new to this whole Boston thing, but about 2 weeks ago I was downtown waiting for the bus and it was so windy that i coud hardly stand up, so I sat down and video taped my hair blowing around. Well, I never posted this but now that its like a monsoon I figured I would post it and say "what the hell?" I thought spring was here a month ago.....

Street Performers

I love street performers. On Tuesday, I was early to meet a friend in Harvard Square so I wandered aimlessly looking at all the stores, and people, until I heard this girl singing.. When I got there, it was beautiful and sunny outside, and I just melted. She was so calming and beautiful that I just sat there for at least half an hour while the rest of the world walked by. It made me think, there are so many people out there who hardly notice the beauty around them. There was a girl sitting at a table just out of my frame wearing huge headphones, just sitting there isolated next to this amazing live performance. Every day, I watch 80% of the people I see walking down the street, or riding the train, who have their ipods on or their portable CD players, or whatever. I can't help but think, they are missing so much...

On Being "Cool"

Here's something you don't expect to see when you walk into a college digital media lab. I don't know about you, but this is like something i would have done when I was like ten, to scare my little sister out of touching my stuff. As a result, seeing this display outside an advanced lab at a private college never ceases to amuse/amaze me.

This lovely, non-discriminating vendetta has been on a locker at Emerson College outside the Digital Production Lab for as long as I can remember, and I just never quite get over it. We at headsoff have no personal association with Mr. "Breakaway" Humphrey.
