The best albums of 2013

Arcade Fire: Reflektor

A weird, crazy rock and roll album:

Zaz: Recto/Verso

It's French, I have almost no idea what she's singing about, but you can understand the emotions. A good mix of pop and jazz:

Bachar Mar-Khalifé: Who's Gonna Get the Ball from Behind the Wall of the Garden Today?

Some sort of mix of classical and pop styles? And in Arabic? A lot of the songs sound like magical spells, and I'm okay with that:

Haven't done on post about street art in awhile, but what I saw in Saint Petersburg today really got me excited. It's like they have a whole new art gallery!

So many colors!

Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger

Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger

It was edible, I ate it all, but it's nothing special.

The pretzel bun didn't stand out. (They didn't even bother to put bits of salt on it!) The greens were hard to chew, and the cheese looked like it never really melted. Also, it had that onion smell. The not good one.

Cuban Breezes


The Cuban sandwich at Cuban Breezes was like a McDonald's version of the Tampa classic. The bread was wrong, the cheese was wrong, but it was still edible.

The beans and rice had a minty flavor, like a shamrock shake, for which I have no explanation.

Christian protesters

These guys were at the Ybor Knight Parade, but they go to all the local celebrations:
