It has been hot here in Washington. I'm moving to Houston in May and so I've been watching the weather down there. And three days in a row it's been hotter here, then in Houston. We hit a record on at least one of the days, for the hottest it's ever been on that day since recorded history. To make things more fun, aside from 90 degree heat in April, is our condo has not switched over to AC...

var dc_AdLinkColor = 'blue' ; var dc_PublisherID = 136269 ; Got a fun email from a nice girl named Lucia promoting the band "We Are Like the Spider". I listened to a few of the tracks and I have to say my favorite is "Lightning Garden"...

Quick list of tracks to get you moving Saturday! (A few of the tracks have french chicks in them, thus the photo [i.e. Soko and Yelle]) The Klaxons are incredible. This song is incredible. It has our first weird french chick, Soko...

Ok, so I'm going to post and write about Crystal Castles today. I don't think they get enough recognition. Whenever I hear their tracks I'm dancing, singing and throwing my arms in the air like a blacklady at pentecostal church...

Is anyone else really tired of Kid Cudi? I've posted this before, but it seems he's had his five minutes, and now he's just shitting all over everyone's ear with all of this new stuff. Some of the remixes out there are even worse...

A real quick post about an artist I had never heard about, Aloe Blacc. I haven't heard such an incredible and original track since Gnarls Barkley was an unknown. I remember going to buy Gnarls Barkley's "St...

I guess being an econ major I should understand the work/leisure trade off. I think I have a very high leisure requirement, or at least a very high requisite in monetary terms to trade my leisure for work. Although, during the snow storm(s) that hit in February (now known as Snow-mageddon and Snow-over Kill), I found myself wanting to get to work...

So I've kept my promise. I'm posting again! Apparently the Olympics will continue forever! However, Apolo Ohno seems to be at an end with last I saw eight medals for his Olympic career. Not to bad and I've got to say I sure like him a whole hell of a lot more than Michael Phelps...

Has anyone else been completely absorbed into the Winter Olympics? I've always loved the winter olympics, where summer sports lose my interest past the opening ceremony, the complete opposite has been true this year...

2/10/10 – “Snow-ver Kill”

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 by DowntroddenInDC

If 26 inches of snow wasn't enough for Washington on Saturday, and three consecutive days of work closings, we now have an "official" blizzard in DC. Predictors are calling for up to and perhaps exceeding 15 inches of snow, with winds sustaining 30mph and gusts up to 50mph...

I guess Tai-Shan got the hell out of D.C. just in time! With 25+ inches of snow on the ground now and forecasts of another storm dropping 8-10+ more tomorrow, China is looking pretty good! Here's a mashup by White Panda to tie that together a bit more!

Rainy Day in DC

Sunday, January 17, 2010 by DowntroddenInDC

A quick post before we venture into the rain. For the last month all it has done is snow and be cold here in DC. Making people of the city especially more shitty. Sidewalks weren't shoveled completely, so of course everyone thinks they should have the whole damn walkway...
