Stripes: A Coldplay Update Day 26

Ok, so I was totally planning to do a post about driving from school to Seattle (a drive I have done at least 100 times in the last 5 years) and I had planned it out on the drive BUT last night’s concert was soooooo amazing I’ve decided to through a post about it in here and save the driving post for tomorrow. So here are my concert highlights:

-When everyone first got to the arena, they were given a super dorky bracelet. About 10 minutes for the show started while they were setting up the final instruments and stuff a sign came on telling us to put the bracelets on. And then, when the lights went off, all the bracelets turned on an glowed!! It was like being apart of a giant Christmas tree. They had some sort of computer program that let the bracelets light up on beat and everything. SO COOL.

-Chris Martin smashed a guitar! I’ve never seen anyone do that before so that was pretty awesome.

-SO MUCH CONFETTI. SO MUCH.

-And this was the best part. For the encore, the band surprised us by coming into the stand IN MY AISLE! I was 10 feet away from all of Coldplay!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever screamed quite like I did when I realized what was happening, cause they’re only my favorite band, you know, no big deal. And, can I just say, Chris Martin’s arms are uh-mazing?! I actually had noticed them on a close up on one of the screens while playing piano…boy is built! But this was undoubtedly the coolest part of the show! The tech crew even brought up a piano and everything. I still cannot believe that happened and I’m pretty sure I’m still feeling the residual adrenaline.

This is the picture I took of Chris Martin (and his sexy arms) when we was right next to us! He's in the pink!

All in all it was an awesome show! I had a ton of fun and the band did a really good job mixing old stuff and new stuff…they did songs from every album they’ve produced, which I really liked. Now, I just want a private show where they play my perfect set list so they will do all the awesome songs they skipped đŸ˜› A girl can dream!

Also, I realize this shirt breaks the rules, but how do you go to your favorite band’s concert and not get a shirt?!

Anyone else ever seen Coldplay live? What kinds of effects did they do in past shows? I’m dying to know because they seem like they really pull all the stops!

Stripes: An Ode to Coldplay Day 25

Can I just say, after having written this post, that this was one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write! I seriously had issues limiting myself to a reasonable number of songs.

Tonight is the day I’ve been waiting for since I was in middle school: I get to see Coldplay live!!! Gahhh! So, in addition to my outfit (at the bottom) I thought it would be fun to put a bunch of my favorite Coldplay songs in my post today. Here you go!

You’ll have to excuse the boringness of my outfit-it’s the last lab day of the challenge.

What’s everyone else’s favorite Coldplay songs?!

[Edit: Hey guys sorry I changed out the picture, I didn’t realize the first one was so blurry. I mean, it’s not like I posted it while in the middle of class or anything…cause of course I would *never* do that.]

Stripes: What I’ve Been Listening To 1.15

This week has been so amazingly busy but Sequins and I have some really awesome new things headed your way! I am so excited because I got to spend my Saturday visiting my favorite Barbershop chorus the Northwest Vocal Project which is one of my favorite places to be. Here’s one of their songs that won them their first Districts Campion title…I was on team confetti (right side of the screen)…no big deal.

And this is another one my my favorite barbershop songs sung by a bunch of guys I know. I ♥ this song SO much!

Now to move in another a’capella direction, here are The Boxettes. I would be so content if I was half as good as their beatboxer.

And then, to break free of the a’capella vibe-Ke$ha…of course! Clearly this was the obvious next choice đŸ˜›

And then finally, we have Life in Technicolor by Coldplay. Seriously how can you not feel happy after listening to this? Maybe it’s just me but this song puts me in a good mood no matter what.

And there you have it, another week’s worth of music. Hope you have a great three day weekend!
