I went to a crazy concert thing on Thursday night called Cathedral Scan. They take the blueprint from a cathedral and scan it through some digital program thing and well.. check the link out and watch the video. It made for a cool concert. The first two acts were not as good though, in fact they went on so long and were so painful at points that I almost left a few times. One of them was just someone holding a camera up to random objects and making random electronic noises based on how they thing it should go. There was no musical theory, no artistic endeavoring, nothing really worth my interest. I took a picture myself at the concert to show you a bit.
After the show Tad and I went right around the corner to a rice pudding food shop called Rice to Riches. We tried the epic size for $8.50 (a bit pricier that we had been looking for) and got two flavors, hit and run custard (lemony) and Panna cotta (creamy). Between us we finished it pretty quickly but didn't really go looking for more. Like all rice pudding it is thick and filling and the lemon custard was vivacious and tangy in your mouth. The best part is that you can take home the bowl and spoon and reuse it yourself. Right now mine is currently holding my tofu.
Anything else interesting? Well, we're still looking for housing, nothing good so far but we've got the rest of the month before we get thrown out. Went to the fancy cheese shop and got three and a half pounds of different cheeses for $6.99. Sweet deal for sure. Oh, the snow has melted away and the trees are looking weird. Let me show you. Tad claims it's the buds are first sign of spring. I think they have tumors.
End result: Rice to Riches gets a 3.5/5 for value. It is unique but it also is way too pricey.
