    obama, barcelona, smelly people, and the heisman

    Bullet points today because I'm bussssy.



    -Design project coming along. Facade/section/structure falling in place. (Until I get told to change it all at the review on Tuesday.)

    -Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize? okay.

    -I'm going to Barcelona next week for 4 days. Rough list of things to see below. Anything missing? First time in the city. (And Spain for that matter.)

    MACBA
    BARCELONA PAVILLION
    MERCAT SANTA CATERINA
    LA SAGRADA FAMILIA
    PARK GUELL
    PICASSO MUSUEM
    LAS RAMBLAS
    LA BOQUERIA
    ARC DE TRIONF, AND PARC DE LA CIUTADELLA
    LA PLAYA


    -Trying to rate all my songs in iTunes - only 4917 left. Made a "never rated" smart playlist and giving each song it's fair chance to earn an appropriate amount of stars.

    -Yesterday this woman sat next to me on the bus and she smelled literally like a wet dog. Not a wet person- a wet dog.

    -This video is hilarious. UT at it's best. (ps. "Eric Berry- yo, he scary.")

      you missed it when they played the eric berry video on the jumbotron during the game last week. nobody knew what to make of the absurdity, especially when it was projected on a 124' wide screen.

      good luck with the barcelona pavilion...

      herzog and de meuron's forum building over on the coast is worth a look.

      hmm,
      Bibliotecta - Jaume Fuster is nice. And in front of the entrance there is a new urban development in and around the street - definitely gets your attention.

      that urban development in front of the Jaume Fuster library is called Plaça Lesseps (by Albert Viaplana):

      Check out Gaudi's Casa Batillo. It's nice.

      There's also an interesting and vibrant graffiti culture around...but I can't tell you where - just wander.

      There are some things off the beaten path as well. Calatrava has a bridge early in his career to the east and the jean nouvell tower is in an interesting spot....

      If you go to the traffic circle at the south side of La Ramblas, toward the ferry teriminal, there is a park with some really awsome graffiti on the walls. Check it out.
