Out of the noise/into the noise.

Just a noisy walk on State Street today, beginning under the scaffolding and ending in a café.

I'm pretty sure there's an adult book store at the top of State Street. Why not film the people coming out of it? :-)

The first part of this clip - walking in between the wood hall (put up by the contruction workers I assume) with the saw going would make a good scene in a horror film.

The onl thing needed is a loud female scream...

Is there anything more lovely than Madison in the springtime?

I have 4 other clips from today, which show things looking much prettier, but I picked this one because the soundtrack amused me. I get away from the construction noise, find my café, my sanctuary, and then they're running the ice crushing blender and making just about exactly the same sound. I also liked the music that, eventually, you hear. I couldn't identify it myself, but I asked.

Was that a silent Scanner Dan on the outside bench?

And Modest Mouse on the stereo?

Danny: You have asked two excellent questions! As to the first, I was wondering that myself. As to the second, you are absolutely correct (and it was quite hard to hear in the clip). I must say, I like that Modest Mouse a lot!
