We made it to Canada!

Hello friends!! We arrived in Toronto yesterday evening!!!!!! Other countries are a new thing. The walk signs are jaunty (and they always turned to the county-down hand before I could get a photo). The road signs are in French and English (expensive). None of our phones work (except Simona’s and maybe De’Andre’s). We sing a lot–oh wait, that’s not any different…

BUT LIFE IS COOL! As proof, a photo of Car Corona as they toured the roof of the hostel: 

WHAT A VIEW, am I right?!?

The trip was an Internet-less adventure, so Imma just chronicle that now. The other unnamed car apparently didn’t take photos (+1 Car Corona)… so here we go.


Y
ou can’t read it, but this said “Tunnel To Canada” which was cool. Pardon the potato photo.


T
his also says “Tunnel To Canada”…


A
LERT: WE ARE IN THE TUNNEL TO CANADA.


T
here is a maple leaf on the wall. This must mean we are in Canada. Ben thinks it’s a scam. Omar agrees.


F
irst selfie in Canada!!!!!!1!!!!!!!


Simona, our fearless driver, stops at a “drug mart” to get her fix. Of cough drops, that is.


C
anadian flag is flying high. Maybe this isn’t a scam…


Jack couldn’t join us. We found an auxiliary Jack to replace him.


TORONT-OH, BOY!!!!!!! Look at that skyline. Breathe a sigh of “yaaassssssss”.

Last night we did a roof sing with Tunes.Beats.Awesome., which was SO MUCH FUN! They also took us on a freezing cold walk to a delicious Asian fusion restaurant. No pics though because we are failures of our generation.

Today we explored Queen Street and sang in stores and on sidewalks and also ate really good burgers/poutine. Later we might go to Trivia Night at the hostel. Or a karaoke place. Or something else. And tomorrow we head to New Jersey! #cantwait

Love love love to all!

Surprise!!

So funny story: We thought a group from Oxford (yes, cialis the one in England) called the Gargoyles was coming to sing with us this evening. But when we met them for dinner we found out that Out of the Blue (the group Sam cheated on us with while studying abroad) had hatched an elaborate plot to surprise Sam with a visit (Sam may have cried a bit…)! We had an awesome time eating, try singing, and hanging with Out of the Blue and we hope we can do it again soon!

The Unease Begins

Turns out this building is a renovated orphanage and infant asylum. And by renovated, I mean not at all. The outside doors are conveniently swollen with damp so they can’t close and slam in the wind. Also, the elevator has twin mirrors reflecting into infinity with the words “Good Night” keyed into one of them. The lighting is conveniently spotty, the floors are stained with some things that resemble something that could be blood, the halls echo with disembodied voices, and the residents aren’t completely…there. So yeah, we’re settling in just fine.

Note of the Day: Brianna Tong

Brianna Tong is a second-year hailing from some small town in Deleware (who really knows the names of cities in DE, anyway?).  We’re super excited that Brianna is planning our spring tour to California this year! Outside of Ransom Notes, Brianna is involved in University Theater, UBallet, and competitive underwater basket-weaving.

10/2/2012, 8:52 pm, Kim

Note of the Day: Justin Krivda

Justin Krivda is an aspiring rapper from Detroit. Unlike Eminem, viagra however, Justin is a third-year here at UChicago. Justin is always involved in a theater production around campus, and his super bass voice makes him the perfect movie narrator. In his free time, Justin records his own music, hangs out with his adorable younger sister, plays Diablo III, writes, and plays his beloved trumpet.

Aya is a third-year Romance Languages major who likes dub-step concerts, road trips, Japanese, and the show “Portlandia”. Aya is certainly never boring to be around!

One thing is clear, though: Jack Nuelle’s talent and dashing good looks will continue to drive the ladies crazy for years to come.

Note of the Day: Scott Loring

Note of the Day: Scott “Sloring” Loring can fall asleep in literally any position, sale at literally any time. Scott is originally from a town in northern California called EUREKA! No, no, that’s the name of his hometown. Scott’s a second-year bass, and an aspiring something-involving-a-lot-of-math major. He fills the group with what we like to call youthful exuberance. Like this one time, when he drank a dish full of soy sauce and wasabi for a dollar. He also speaks Italian because he took a gap year to study art in Italy.

9/27/2012, 4:52 am, Kim

Note of the Day: Sam Scarrow

Sam Scarrow is a fourth-year and our current music director. He just got back from a year abroad in Oxford, where he sang with the internationally acclaimed a cappella group “Out of the Blue.” They were on the British talent show “X-Factor”. In other words, he cheated on us with a hotter, younger European woman. But we’re sort of okay with it.

9/26/2012, 2:17 pm, Kim

Note of the Day: Adrienne Walker

Adrienne Walker is a second year from Texas but she doesn’t have an accent (kind of a disappointment if you as me).  Having attended an arts magnet high school, she is full of music to core.  In fact, if you don’t entertain this girl for 3 minutes, she’s singing “Part of You World” or “Hit Me Baby One More Time.” There’s no stopping this one!

9/25/2012, 2:51 pm, Kim

Note of the Day: Omar Castro

Omar Castro is a fourth-year Religious Studies major. He’s also a drum set. Back in 2010, Omar volunteered to compete in a beatboxing competition with all the a cappella groups on campus, even though he had never beatboxed before in his life! And guess what– Omar won the competition! True story. When people find out you’re in Ransom Notes, the first thing they always say is, “OHMYGOD. OMAR IS AMAZING.”

Aca-pong

Last night was somewhat of an interesting first for the Notes. Visiting Fish's hometown of Springfield, view we had the pleasure of singing with Wittenberg University's Just Eve–for a full house of frat brothers and partygoers. Now, I don't know what's in the Wittenberg water, but these folks were a good deal more receptive to an a cappella concert interrupting their Bacchanalian revelry than I expected.

The Notes' real glory, though, came at the pong table. There, a few UChicago a cappella nerds bested two waves of frat brothers (most of whom stood over 6 feet and had necks as thick as tree trunks) and went into triple overtime (that's right, triple) with another. We left with the taste of both glorious victory and certain libations fresh in our mouths–but, surely, that of victory was the sweeter.

SPRING TOUR EVE

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE TOUR AND ALL THROUGH HYDE PARK…
ALL THE RANSOM NOTES WERE WIDE AWAKE IN THE DARK.
SAM SCARROW WAS “SO.PUMPED.” THAT’S WHAT HE WAS.
(JUST LIKE WE IMAGINE HE ONCE FELT, ANTICIPATING SANTA CLAUS).
LAUREN WAS PACKING HER BAGS AND SUITCASES,
AND PROBABLY PLACING THEM NEXT TO HER BASS’S.
TOMORROW WE’LL PACK OUR TWO VANS TO THE BRINK
THEN SQUISH OURSELVES INSIDE, AND WISH WE COULD SHRINK.

IT’S FIRST TO THE LAND OF SPRINGFIELD WHEN CHICAGO WE LEAVE
WE WILL STAY WITH THE FISH(ES) AND SING WITH JUST EVE,

DAY 2 BRINGS US TO PITTSBURGH TO RAISE FUNDS
AND SING WITH THE PITT PENDULUMS FOR LOTS, LOTS MORE FUN!

IT’S A LONG WAY, THE NEXT DAY, TO DELAWARE
(HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET THERE WITHOUT USING OUR SPARE)!
WITH THE BUCKWORTHS WE’LL STAY, BEFORE WE DEPART
IT’S ONLY AN HOUR TO PHILLLY– WE WON’T NEED A HEAD START.

THEN IT WILL BE MONDAY AND WE’LL SING WITH GRACENOTES
I HOPE IT WON’T BE SO COLD THAT WE’LL NEED COATS.

TUESDAY WHEN WE SAY GOODBYE TO THE SCARROWS,
WE WILL HAVE TO BE UP WITH THE BLUE JAYS AND SPARROWS
CAUSE OUR FIRST GIG’S AT 10, IN A HIGH SCHOOL IN JERSEY,
AND HALF-DONE WILL BE OUR ODYSSEY.
THAT TUESDAY NIGHT WE’LL STAY IN NEW YORK
AFTER SINGING FLAWLESSLY, LIKE A ….TUNING …FORK…?

WEDNESDAY WE’LL BE PERFORMING AT SAINT VINCENT FERRER
BRINGING BACK SOME OF ONE NOTE’S MEMORIES OF TERROR
BEFORE WE STAY IN BROOKLYN WITH OUR DEAR, DEAR OLD FRIENDS,
A GIANT RANSOM NOTE FAMILY THAT NEVER WILL END…?

THURSDAY WE WILL SING FOR SAOIRSE’S GRANNY
AND SIGHTSEE THE CITY (SANS PACKS OF FANNIE).
FRIDAY WE HEAD WEST, AS THE PIONEERS
CONCLUDING OUR TOUR FOR TWO MORE YEARS.
