Day 256 - Outside Lands: Day 1

Day 256.

I'm happy to report that I will be attending the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco for the next three days. I'm not happy to report that I will have still have to watch the film Julie & Julia once a day for the next three days (plus another 107).

So unfortunately, that means I had to take the final plunge... the iTunes plunge.

That's right--after resisting for 256 days, I finally bought Julie & Julia on iTunes. What a waste of $9.99. I could've bought another 1/23rd of a Outside Lands ticket with that money!

I was doing pretty well with my laptop and my 2 copies on DVD (one for backup), but I knew that I'd eventually have to put that shitty movie on my DaiPhone 4. Now, I will be able to watch in the downtime between concerts... I'll undoubtedly be the coolest (read: only guy watching Julie & Julia) guy there.

If any Bay area folk will be there, look out for me--I'll be the guy with the headphones watching Julie & Julia while MGMT is rocking everyone's faces off.

And in anticipation of most of my time being spent at a 3-day music festival, I must warn you that the quality J&J content that you all have become accustomed to (ha!) will probably be a little scarcer than usual. I apologize for this, but then again--most of you probably don't care anyways. This is just me thinking becoming self-absorbed just like Julie Powell: "How am I going to explain this? My readers are going to be really upset. They were so into it."

God, I hope I never become that delusional. To tide you over until then, here's a goofy video about my old high school that's been making the rounds on the internet. You can finally see where my demented mind came from.

But more importantly, here is an insightful article providing some context for this ridiculous video, written by my good friend and former guest blogger, Jack Dickey. If you have any interest whatsoever, read this article. It's brilliant.

Your regularly scheduled Julie & Julia programming will return shortly.


Julie & Julia
Quote of the Day: "Last week, I dreamed that I made cassoulet for Dad, and he hated it, of course. He doesn't understand any of this." 


  1. Have you ever thought of getting the book on tape?

    Or getting the soundtrack?

    You've done Netflix, you've got the DVD, and now you have it on your iPhone... I think you should have J&J on every media on which it has been made.

  2. This seems like a really cool project! And i think the iTunes version might come in handy sometimes, like when you need to watch the film on a whim.


  3. Have you tried getting Meryl Streep or anyone else to guest-post? Also will you ever watch this movie again after the year is up?

  4. "This is just me becoming self-absorbed just like Julie Powell"

    haha great line.

  5. oh yeah, the video is quite brilliant. your school looks fun!

    just found your blog. what a fun project you're on...!!!

  6. Wow, I can't believe you are a phillips kid! Sorry but minus several respect points bro. XD

    (BTWS phillps isn't part of andover. It's a black hole in the center.)

  7. There is a free Netflix app. Although I'm a little late with the news.

  8. FHA remains for the Federal Housing Administration. This is an administration association that is in charge of Housing and Urban Development or HUD. FHA is the gathering that guarantees contract credits so that the moneylender will give you a superior arrangement and will bail you out without requiring a lot of cash down. auto title loans online

  9. Realize what credits the SBA and your bank won't do. For instance the SBA won't advance on betting, theoretical land, multilevel showcasing, religious associations, foundations, and organizations that have defaulted on government advances. cash advance chicago

  10. On the off chance that you should enlist a lawyer for any reason, you'll rapidly acknowledge how costly they can be. Regardless of whether you are experiencing a separation, upholding an agreement or employing a lawyer for whatever other reason, you should concoct a considerable measure of cash moderately rapidly on the off chance that you wish to keep your lawyer around.

  11. Thanks for sharing. I hope it will be helpful for too many people that are searching for outside lands music festival topic.
