I would suggest Humboldt St. University in Arcata,CA. Redwoods,ocean, rivers, mountains, good music, and cool folks. It does get foggy at times but the winters are mild. Check out their cirriculum and see if anything interests you. Good luck to you!

Where Will This Wind Take Me

Coming upon the age of 18 I feel as though I have experienced much more than the average person these days and all the more I wonder where my calling is. It will not be too long before I will study at college. I have prospects for Green Mountain College in VT, Evergreen in WA, Oregon State University, Santa Cruz and so on but I am just wondering if anyone who has been around more than I could give me some insight into where a good place would be to meet and experience life with some old heads along with continuing the myth with some youngins like myself.

Costume Ideas for Phil Show at Nokia

Sorry If this isn't the best place to post this, but this is the closest to a "random" thread as I could find. Hopefully you can still help me.

So I'm going to the Halloween show again this year and was thinking of making a costume resembling a thing or a character from a GD song. I NEED YOUR HELP!

Originally I was going to portray August West, the beggar from "Wharf Rat", but I began to realize how uncreative and cliche a homeless man costume would be for such a special occasion. I want to do something unique and specific for such a meaningful event and although this song is absolutely special to me, I feel as though my portrayal would come up short mainly because the costume would not require anything distinctly noticeable and a lot of commercial costume retailers sell hobo costumes. So I looked elsewhere.

I really like the song "The Eleven" and was going to do the "Seven faced marble eye transitory dream doll" mentioned in the lyrics, however most of the versions of this song that I have and that I've listened to don't have this verse in it, so I'm thinking of doing something else that people will recognize. The other verses "Eight sided whispering hallelujah hatrack", "Six proud walkers on jingle bell rainbow", "Five men writing in fingers of gold" are too esoteric to replicate in a costume. (Don't get me wrong, I love the abstract nature of these versus, I just can't replicate them in a way that appropriately demonstrates my appreciation for this song-- especially in a costume).

I was also thinking about doing the notoriously shifty alligator from the song "Alligator" or the carrion crow from "Mountains of the Moon" but I came to the conclusion that these characters are too general, so I might have to come up with a creative way to tailor a seemingly-broad animal costume into a specific character related to a particular song. I have yet to come up with a way to do this, so I continue to search for ideas.

There is such a plethora of wonderful and diverse characters in all of these songs, I know there's one that is specific and creative enough for this purpose, which is why I am being so picky (also because this night is so special and meaningful to me).

Here are some guidelines as to what I am looking for:
-Something creative, {{VIBRANT}}, and specifically related to a GD song
-Something not too general (i.e. alligator or crow—unless specifically tailored to make it distinguishable)
-Something relatively tangible (i.e. I can't make a costume resembling an "Eight sided whispering hallelujah hatrack")
-Doesn't necessarily have to be recognizable to EVERYONE- Doesn't have to be OBVIOUS (In fact I'd prefer it to not be so blatant)
-Can be recreated using paper mache or something else besides just clothes and/or paint
-Something that is suitable for a guy (I'm a male)
-Preferably something from a song that is in Phil's repertoire (if the song is played that night it will make it even that much more special!)

Help me!! I'll take ANY ideas.
