Weekend Do: Guest Edition

July 29, 2011 § 1 Comment

It’s been a great summer having guest bloggers fill in while Pakou traveled and hearing more creative voices in this space. So this weekend do is brought to you by our guest bloggers. If you’re loud enough, they may even come back.

1. From Leah: Do read up on George Orwell’s classic 1946 essay, “Politics and the English Language” for some keen insights into writing, speaking, and most importantly, thinking!

2. From Grete: Do enjoy a quintessential comfort-food favorite (at the first pizza place or the Shake Shack), walk an old rail line, and visit a one-of-kind exhibit,

3. From Laura: Do go to a local music festival (mine was the Darrington Bluegrass Festival) with friends.  Enjoy the local cuisine (mine was pork sandwiches).  Watch people make art all around you (dancing, singing, playing, drawing).  Sit five-to-a-car, middle back seat, on your way home.  Get the whole car to sing along spiritedly to Sufjan Steven’s entire Illinoise album.  Insert hand motions.  Love your life.

4. From Steven: Do listen to The Civil Wars.  I especially love their cover of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.”
