My last night in Tally was the best one. Catherine, I and other friends went to local house show at venue/house called Heart’s Desire. MoonLasso, Michael Parallax and Born Gold were playing supported by Tussin and Great Beer. It was the best show and I had so much fun there. This was my first house show ever and it looked exactly how it should look like. I was there with best people who were enjoying music I enjoy and it was amazing feeling to be connected with people from different country. I couldn’t imagine better ending of my two weeks in Tally. Now I will be heading on tour with MoonLasso and Michael Parallax. My real adventures are just about to start.
On last day in Tally I and Catherine went for a small trip to Lake Jackson Mounds, archaeological park. We were taking buses and walking a lot in Florida’s hot weather. It was a nice trip, but we ended up totally exhausted. Moreover there was not a lot to see and we have met there literally no one. But I was glad that I have seen something from old history of Florida.
"Lake Jackson Mounds Archaeological State Park is one of the most important archaeological sites in Florida, the capital of chiefdom and ceremonial center of the Fort Walton Culture inhabited from 1050–1500. The complex originally included seven earthwork mounds, a public plaza and numerous individual village residences."
Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novelLost Horizon by British author James Hilton. Hilton describes Shangri-La as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise, and particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia — a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world.
On Thursday Cold Cave was playing at FSU’s venue Club Downunder. Catherine sneaked me there for free with some old FSU card. I enjoyed show even though I was not listening to Cold Cave before. It is not exactly type of music I am listening to but the show was really good.
Some second-hand bookstore in Tallahassee. I had no idea how it was called (update: Cath told me its name is “Book Mine”). I couldn’t find there anything worth buying, though I have bought there Arthur C. Clarke: The Sands of Mars. Want to have something to read on my way up North, since I have lost my Kindle on my flight.
The Other Side. A vintage store in Tallahassee. I have spent there almost an hour digging all the stuff they have there. Mostly I was looking for cool postcards and I have found them. Everything was little bit overpriced, but they head some really nice stuff there and so many records.
