This morning, I ran and completed the BAA 5k. The official times haven't been posted yet, but I'm pretty sure I came in well under 30 minutes. Not bad for my first 5k.

They set a new BAA 5k record. Something under 13:30. That's just insane. That's better than a 4:30/mile for the whole 3.1 miles.

My BAA 5k information and number showed up in the mail today. The race is on April 19th - less than a month from now. I still can't believe that I'm doing this.

Boston Calling announced their lineup for May 23-25 today. The weekend is headlined by Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and one more band TBA, with bands like Brand New, Tegan and Sara, and Bastille.

Although I really like the lineup, I'm very underwhelmed by the lack in variety. After seeing the headliners and looking up the bands I didn't know on Wikipedia, they are all rock and indie. After the last Boston Calling, which featured a day of rock and indie and a day of pop, dance, and EDM, I was really looking forward to the same kind of variety.

Don't get me wrong - I think Boston Calling is going to be a blast and I'm looking forward to a weekend of live music. However, I'm less excited for it then I was going into last September's, simply because of the lack of variety.

It's mashup season. I think that Pop Danthology is better this year, but both are solid mashups.

Pop Danthology 2013 - Mashup of 68 songs! - Pop Danthology 2013

DJ Earworm Mashup - United State of Pop 2013 (Living the Fantasy) - United State of op 2013: Living the Fantasy

Krewella tonight, with the Red Sox playing a few hundred feet away. Tonight may be epic.

Candyland is also awesome live. Better than their albums. Wasn't a fan of Seven Lions, though.

Dannic, Dyro, and Hardwell pretty much killed it tonight at House of Blues Boston. Fantastic show all around. Next up, our regularly scheduled program of home and work until my 5k on Saturday morning.

The only thing missing was an unrealistic deadline.

I recently bought a new lens - an 85mm f/3.5 - so I needed to go test it out. Most of these shots were taken with that lens, even though it was probably grossly inappropriate. Unlike most of my other photos posted before, these have all been post-processed in Lightroom, which is something I'm trying to get better at.

Google Chrome recently changed its behavior of the new tab page, with no apparent way to restore anything comparable to the old behavior. I must say that I do like having a search box and the Google logo/doodle on a new tab page, but I don't like not having my installed apps available.

This is extremely disappointing, especially since there doesn't appear to be any new functionality - just bug fixes and a forced UI change with no apparent ability to restore the old behavior.

They added an Apps link to the bookmarks bar or replace the old new tab screen.
