The ATP NY announcement mitigates two severely disappointing blows that I've been dealt this week. I'll be missing:
  • two Jarvis Cocker performances in July, because I'll be on the west coast.
  • a free Wire performance at South Street Seaport on May 30 (featuring Margaret Fiedler from Laika on guitar!), because my mom will be in town.
I better land tickets to ATP UK. Grumble, grumble.

How has NO ONE on my friends list written about this yet?!?!

All Tomorrow's Parties - New York

September 19 - 21, at Kutshers Country Club, in Monticello, New York.


My Bloody Valentine

Meat Puppets performing Meat Puppets II
Thurston Moore performing Psychic Hearts
Tortoise performing Millions Now Living Will Never Die
Fuck Buttons
The Drones
Wooden Shjips

I am a complete mess right now. I wish there was a physical ticket outlet so I could go line up in front of it right now. I'm not going to be able to sleep at all until Friday.

I don't know if it was your influence, fisticuffs, but Amazon sure got back to me quickly!
I'm sorry for the problem with the DVD. It appears as if the DVD arrived defective. Please note that we do not want our customers to get into any kind of trouble. We want everyone to have a pleasant experience with us. Hence, to correct the situation, I've placed a new order for the item "The Wire - The Complete Second Season" at no charge.

He doesn't want me to get into any kind of trouble. What a sweet man.

A letter I just sent to Amazon customer service. It also goes a long way toward explaining what the hell I'd been doing all winter.

I'll post back when I get a response. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

So the big news is that Marci's moving in with me at the end of this month. The lesser news is that she's looking for a subletter for her apartment in Manhattan. I've re-posted her ad below — check it out if you or someone you know is looking for a place, and drop me a line if you want more info.

The apartment listing...Collapse )

Our trip to Defiant Brewery now has an official writeup. Though I'm not referenced by name, I'm responsible for the custard quote.

Marci and I drove down to Washington, DC, this past weekend to hang out with old favorites Donny and Katie, and check out the cherry blossoms. And get unexpectedly loaded on Belgian beer.

Full photo set here.

After taking care of some business in Astoria, I just rode the R train into work a few minutes ago, and sat across from the Dapper Mr. Thom Browne for a solid seven stops. He was dressed exactly as you would expect - tight grey flannel suit, short pants, skinny tie, pocket square - and his acolyte/gentleman-friend matched him precisely. I refrained from saying anything to him, not even a smile and nod, mostly out of the shame borne from my holey, faded super-unstylish jeans and covered-in-city-grime sneakers. At least I was wearing pretty socks.

The boys and I took the train up to Pearl River, NY on Saturday and spent a few hours at the Defiant Brewery.
