Cultural Miscellanies

Culture Clash

So….no video again this week. We were both much too busy enjoying life. Alannah spent the latter part of the week sipping cocktails in NYC, while Arlie ran around barefoot at a folk music festival in rural Ontario. The cultural contrast between these activities is pretty extreme, but that doesn’t mean you can’t like both. Here are our biggest takeaways from the long weekend.

Arlie’s festival is involves thousands of hippies and their kids and grandkids taking in the music and workshops. Headliners that especially stood out included Jaron Freeman-Fox and the Opposite of Everything, Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, Ian Sherwood and Coco Love Alcorn, and The 24th Street Wailers. Tweener acts that should definitely be going somewhere included Patrick Bunston, and Dana Idlet with Ben Whiteley. Check ’em out.

Alannah enjoyed If/Then, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Cabaret on Broadway.

In increasing order of realism and hilarity, we’ve been watching Sex and the City, Girls, and Broad City. All are about women living in New York City, but they all have very different depictions of friendship and love.

We’ll have a video next week I SWEAR.
