Bridge School

So I just found out the line up for Bridge School this year, the dates are 10/25 pr 26th.
  • Neil Young - Obviously (saw him last year)
  • Wilco - This might kill my cred, but I'm not obsessed with Wilco
  • Jack Johnson - amusing for sure, but not a good reason to drive six hours, he would just be a plus, not a must.
  • Death Cab for Cutie - love em, seen em, and they are wonderful, but not something I need to travel for.
  • Norah Jones - Talented girl, for sure, but not going to coax me south.
  • Cat Power - She's wonderful, but not a must for me.
  • Sarah McLachlan (Saturday only) - Once again doesn't do much for me. If she was here I would totally go.
  • ZZ Top (Saturday only) - hah!
  • Josh Groban (Sunday only) - meh
  • Smashing Pumpkins (Sunday only) - cool, but not a must.

Tickets are on sale from TicketMaster and Shoreline. Reserved seats are $75.00 and $150.00. Lawn seats are $39.95.

So while I love this festival, it's so relaxing, economical and fun, but this line up doesn't make me want to take a weekend off and drive down to the Shoreline. But if you go, let me know.

For me, the fest would be all about:
Neil Young (a god), Wilco (best show I ever saw at Van Duzer) and Jack Johnson (sucker for barefoot surfers playing guitars and living sweet – don't care how much he's dismissed by "serious" rock critics).

(Talk about killing cred – I am so utterly bored by DCC ["I Will Follow" makes me want to kill myself], but would happily spend an hour with Jack Johnson above them any day.)

And, I would love to experience the classic-ness that is ZZ Top (are they still the original line-up? I have no idea).

Not even sure who Josh Groban is.

I saw the Pumpkins back in 1994 at the Hollywood Palladium. I am pretty sure that show was better than anything I could see now.

Sounds like you should probably go, I love the fest it's self, but the line up not my favs. So yeah, it's super economical for a day chilln on a lawn with a pic nic listening to good music.

I loved the line up last year, Regina Spektor, John Mayor, Tegan and Sara, Neil Young, Jerry Lee Lewis, Tom Waits and Metallica... so much fun.
Oh and my Morning Jacket, which i napped through, so delightful.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

Guest Post - Hand-made roll-up panniers by Libby Bowles

It's bike month everyone! Don't forget to check out, and register to win prizes and such. In other exciting news, my amazing friend Libby can do anything! She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
