Let’s Get Hype!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Hope on June 23, 2009 @ 1:16 pm

I’m not exactly consistent with my exercising, but when I decide to  I love to do it with music…it’s the only way to do it really. About 2 or 2 & 1/2 years ago I made a mix called “Kick Ace!” that I pretty much use every time I need exercise music, usually when I dance around inside rather than go running. I’m not the type who likes to hold an ipod while I run really. My workouts change, but I usually do ab work, push-ups sometimes, and I always dance around like crazy however I feel moved to. I also have a hula-hoop that I love. ;) Anyway, I’ve decided to share Hope’s workout mix with you all. There are a few songs I don’t really like as much as I use to, so I usually just skip through them…keep in mind this was two years ago and #’s 9-11 are more cool down songs. ENjoy.

The Doves

Filed under: Updates — Hope on June 4, 2009 @ 11:22 pm

Went to The Doves concert tonight at Terminal 5. The venue was pretty cool. My boyfriend and I stood on cushioned seats in order to see, it was pretty much standing room only. We went to the top (third floor), it was less crowded up there. The 2nd and 3rd levels had V.I.P. sections blocked off right by the balcony edges. I enjoyed it, but the sound wasn’t quite as great as it could have been. Perhaps I’m spoiled by sound of the album. I was surprised by how nice the venue was, especially for being so far on the West Side of Manhattan. They showed videos throughout the whole show on a big screen behind them, it was more entertaining than some shows that just shine bright lights or show swirlies on a screen the whole time. They came out for an encore after perhaps 3 minutes of clapping. I’d guess the audience was about 2,000 people maybe, give or take a thousand, kidding…probably 2,000, but I was never the best at guesstimating. The songs were pretty well balanced between their old and new albums, which I liked.

I scored a free ticket to a show the last week of May, one night after work. It was for The Roots, it was pretty dope. It wasn’t what I expected though, they actually had quite a few guest artists come on stage every once in a while to perform. I really liked the opening band, Elevator Fight. I had heard one of their songs before. The lead singer, Zoe Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz’s daughter had a really great stage presence. It was a fun unexpected thing to do.

I should really start making it a goal to see at least one live performance a month.
