Rupert Hudson

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.

The Best Things About Hopscotch Festival 2011

Marie Antoinette once said “I have seen all, I have heard all, I have forgotten all.” I’m pretty sure she said that after attending Raleigh’s Hopscotch Festival. I feel like I saw so much and did so much that I can’t remember any of it, does that make sense? I decided to try to remember […]

Written by on 2011/09/07 in Featured, News with 0 Comments

Beautiful would be the top word to describe this band. But talented would be a close second. Typhoon are a band from Portland, Oregon with a band ranging from 13-21 members, depending on where they play. When I saw them at Lollapalooza they had 13 members, including 2 drummers, trumpeters, and two violinists. It seems […]

Okay. Hi. I have been so slacking lately and haven’t posted anything all summer, primarily because I was too busy watching Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones to even go near my keyboard. I’ve also been doing other stuff I guess. I saw a fantastic Bon Iver show in Raleigh, opened for Stepdad, and went […]
