This Friday, Sept. 1st
Supreme Trading

Bedford Stop
starting around 9-11ish (whenever to whenever...)

for Monica and Erin

don't mess with texas. seriously. 

because it's crazy as shit.

First, Warren Jeffs, the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints not only has a church name that is way too damn long. But he's also nutso. And captured. And has followers in West Texas. He's on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, right up there with the slightly more popular Mr. bin Laden. Isn't he a cutie?

Secondly, the Lone Star State isn't just home to more than half of LDTers. It's also home to a pastor who raped a woman. Oh, wait, I'm sorry. He didn't rape her. He was just trying to remove a "sex spirit and lesbian demon" inhabiting her body.

And because things come better in three, we'll just finish off with George W. Bush, and what he's really wanted to say all these years in his State of the Union addresses.

Free from Starbucks? WTF 

Starbucks if finally paying us back for all those 6 dollar lattes. They will be unveiling a pop up store type thingie at 76 greene st. from Sept. 8th through the 17th.

"The Starbucks Salon is a nomadic interactive coffeehouse, gallery, and performance venue rolled into one."

Sounds a bit lofty but notables do include: Buck 65, Lansing-Dreiden and Jose Gonzales

the final countdown... is over.

"a season fraught with betrayal, magic tricks gone awry, malfunctioning Japanese jet packs, a rare hair plug disorder, a gorgeous British girl hiding a secret, Justine Bateman and Scott Baio's triumphant return to broadcast television, dead turtles, fake comas, a Christian magic show in Baghdad, and the final, shocking revelation of who was behind the Bluth hardships from the beginning." - DVD Verdict

wisdom meets folly 


don't worry frank,
i'd take an elbow to the eye for you 

"I used to have a band, and now I don't"

nick and i went to see frank black (aka charles thompson) last saturday night at cozy southpaw. he played a great, charged set of his solo stuff - most of which i didn't know - and a couple of pixies songs. we even managed to snag a spot right up front, so i could actually see (except right after the elbow incident.)

that made me happy.

then i read this article, which made me sad. but i have to say, it definitely made me wanna see this:

a documentary filmed behind the scenes of the 2004 pixies reunion tour
opens at cinema village (aka the pee pee theater) on september 29th
on DVD november 7th

watch the trailer here


get your batteries while they're hot...er, not hot 

I purchased a Powerbook in June, and by the middle of July the battery overheated and the whole notebook went kaput. Apple fixed it (free of charge of course) however, I was without a computer for seven days! I was pretty T O'd. Just wanted to inform everyone who has an iBook G4 or a PowerBook G4 to contact Apple about the recall, and get your replacement batteries ASAP.

pluto, now just a dog and a dwarf 

aw, why'd they have to go and "take the magic out of the solar system"?? what about my very educated mother? what's she gonna give us nine of now? how am i supposed to pass down my old spraypainted styrofoam model of the solar system to my great-great-grandchildren? they'll make fun of me and tell people i probably thought the earth was flat, and that global warming was real. i feel so cheated.


what are you doing tonight 


if i wasn't gonna be at this:

= revenge of the book-eaters

i would totally be at this:

= riverflicks: clockwork orange

and/or this:

= crackers united presents FRICTION

but the whole time i'd secretly wish i was doing this:

= buy me one?

August 27, 2006
Princess Mononoke
(1997, 134 mins)
Directed by Hayao Miyazaki

With an introduction by Claire Danes.
Mature in theme, operatic in scope, mystical in style, Princess Mononoke is the mythological tale of a war between encroaching civilization and the beast gods of the forest. In a remote mountain village far away in Northern Japan, the young warrior Ashitaka, is forced to kill a monster to protect his village. Too late, he discovers that the boar-like creature he killed is a protector-god of the forest. In killing the demon boar, Ashitaka has brought upon himself a curse, its sign: a twisted scar on his right forearm that is slowly spreading.

Ashitaka journeys to the land of the Tatara clan where he hopes to uncover the mystery of the curse before it takes his young life. Along the way, he becomes involved in the bitter fight between two warring factions of humans and a race of forest-gods trapped in the middle.

this week-old "giant" panda is totally the first one on her block to get
her own blog.

it's all written in chinese, but there are pictures... right now she looks pretty pink and squirr'ly. but before long, i bet she'll be cute as a penguin. the blog will continue for the panda's entire lifespan, about 25 years (or until she tries to google falun+gong+torture.)

She's cute, she's french and she makes really good songs. They're called last looks, check them out HERE and add them if you like. They have like 6 friends so show them some love.


my week. 

two weekends ago, the paris' burned out of town. but not before leaving their mark on the city. i'm not sure who i'm going to watch cowboys games with every sunday, or who jacquie is going to bird call with. but they're going to be missed.

natalie has decided that a birthday is no longer enough, she likes to celebrate for an entire week. so happy birthweek natalie! here she is on tuesday of her birthweek, opening a pack of camera.

on friday, we went to a free hot chip show at the south street seaport. they showed us how we breakdown.

and i found myself.

saturday, eve 'n i went down to coney island. codeword 'dragonfly'.

we rocked the boat. this is that pirate ship ride that goes really high, and makes you get real seasick.

look! next to the dip! it's a bird! it's a plane! no, it's flattened...rolled...pretzel girl...or something. eve stop playing with your food...



Save the planet: have a drink 

Matt, this one's for you. If you're not already secretly the president.

Bring your electric bill to sign up for Wind Power and get free admission.

can we discuss this.... 

So I just saw the new Beyonce video for Deja Vu. Its awful granted, but what really baffled me is how the director, Sophie Muller (she does No Doubt, Dixie Chix, etc...), pitched this concept to Beyonce. Seriously, if anyone can get a hold of the treatment I would love to read it. I can only imagine what it said, "Sexy slave girl in couture run s from the plantation while at the same time giving Jay-Z a hard on."



flickr and dodgeball have a threesome with myspace 

and out comes radar.


grunge and k-holes are making a comeback 

basically... 90s music. "ultimate dance party vol. 2" Take all American trends that are considered "out" Adidas windpants, X-Files t-shirts with "The Truth is Out There," JNCO, and Doc Martens and now picture hipsters trying to recreate awkward school dances and you aren't even close to realizing how cool the 90's or this party will be. yes. never ironic, because sandra actually listens to "more and more" like, all day while she's at the gym. expect: soul asylum. la bouche. stone temple pilots. blackstreet. des'ree. tripping daisy. [thank Ju-On's BF for that]

Tomorrow night and then every other Thursday after that (The Thursdays in between will be my goth night but I'm not sure how many of you on here listen to industrial and techno minimal, but worth a mention if you want to see me all in black with eye-liner doing the "Coffin")

guest "spin doctor": josh [from the now-defunct orchard bar]

SOCIAL LUBE drink special open bar before midnight!

sandra [your lady love]
andrew [puts the HUNK in chunks]
sheal [rice paddles]
302 broome
21+ [strictly enforced because Sheal don't have a phone so she can't sneak your jailbait trick in]

don't bring your fake id, no naked whores, and i promise "I'll make love to you."


happy sauna day nat! 

er, happy birth-day.

not quite knee-sweatin' ACL hot,
but let's just say i wish i had some modern english on my computer so i could post "melt with you" as your birthday mp3.

here's to you - and to some icy cold cocktails tonight!
