Lubbock is a Cold Desert.
I was recently driving around Lubbock doing random college-y things (buying plastic cups, monster and ping pong balls) when Cold Desert by The Kings of Leon came up on my ipod. If you don't live in west Texas you don't understand, but Lubbock is a cold dry place. I'm pretty sure its the only place in the country where you can get a Haboob (huge sandstorm for those laughing at a word with 'boob' in it) and a blizzard within about 3 months of eachother. The song reminds me of those hours right before a party or event where most people just hang out and prep for the insuing insanity, the calm before the storm. To be honest there isn't much to do in Lubbock unless you're working, studying, or partying, so there's some empty time where you just have to find things to do or sit and think, hopefully not even more about school. It's a good thing to have empty time, college kids get overworked, and not only from school but from social stuff. Every once in a while you just gotta kick back and play some tunes or something so you don't go crazy. Work hard, play harder, and keep on jammin'
