Hi, I’m Claire (Zack’s girlfriend). When Zack asked me to write a little for his beloved website I was a undoubtedly nervous. While I am mentioned every now and then here, I have never made a contribution. As I sat through a very boring French class this afternoon contemplating whether to follow through and actually write something, a few questions spun around in my head. What could I possibly write about? Who actually cares what I have to say? What if there’s a mean comment? What if there are no comments? I tend to over-think things. I’m copping out this week, reveling in the fact that this is an introductory post and therefore all I have to do is say a little bit about myself. I am sophomore at Connecticut College. I am from Washington D.C. I enjoy cereal, Andy Roddick, Zack, and the Redskins (ed. note: I wouldn’t date her if she didn’t). I like a wide variety of music and my favorite band/song is constantly changing, however I am loyal to The Strokes and Vampire Weekend (cliché I know). The best concert I’ve ever been to was Daft Punk in Brooklyn followed closely by the Spice Girls in 3rd grade (I’m not really sure if I’m kidding or not).
I’m still trying to develop an idea about the form this weekly (possibly?) post will take. Right now I’m leaning towards current events/politics/pop culture but for now I thought I would simply provide you with a list of some of my favorite songs. I am going to do my best to choose songs Zack hasn’t posted on the site (which is difficult considering I get a majority of my music from here). So here they are:
