here's a bunch of random stuff i've been meaning to post about,

shindig! tomorrow night. (i was all set to make some jailbait jokes here, but then i saw the 21+ on the flyer. hmmm. then i looked at the party details on their site and it says to be sure to bring your fake IDs. so... yeah. let the playground taunting begin.)

- once you go google maps you never go back. adjust your bookmarks accordingly.

- basquiat at the brooklyn museum through june 5.

- whoa, must've missed this while i was busy stalking luke wilson at the new zipcode worthy whole foods flagship in austin.

- i just finished this book by (my new friend) will clarke. if you're looking for a book that reads like a sprawling short story written by chuck palahniuk after a six pack of sparks and a decemberists concert. you should definitely check it out. or borrow it from me.

- we saw the bravery at rothko for a special KROCK concert last week. it was sponsered by MGD (My God who Drinks this) and this photo should sum up the experience:

and in the continuing spirit of giving out awards nick went ahead and nominated the bravery for "best worst hair ever" - even before seeing hot look the singer was rocking in his last band called...

wait for it...
skabba the hut.

it seems our guesses of a recent frat boy past may have been too generous. even the killers have been dissing them.

- in recent travel news: u.s. airways sucks. (although unlike the way more evil delta, they did manage to refund half our ticket price when they failed to get us on a plane, any plane, out of syracuse.) so we had to rent a car and drive back in the thickest fog i've ever seen. it was more than movie fog, it was interpol at radio city music hall smoke machine fog. luckily, the sheer novelty of listening to FM radio helped to ease the 6 hour journey into what seemed like the abyss.

in addition to some great classic (doors, pink floyd) and 90s classic (GNR, STP, oasis, cranberries) rock i got to hear the new NIN track - dope as expected. the new weezer track (beverly hills)- eh, maybe it will grow on me. and a new sterephonics song (dakota). we spent the whole song trying to decipher if it was old or new and before the vocals started someone even thought that it could be a bowie track. in other words, i dug it. and i was surprised when i found out it was the stereophonics.

- tonight, i'm gonna give the (american) office another shot. i guess the whole bad lipsync routine was only for the first episode. this one will have to stand on its own two wingtipped feet. which reminds me of a joke i read in the YES!NO! invisible ink book in the car yesterday:

Q: when do horses have 16 legs?
(A: when there are four of them.)
