i ain't exactly young nor am i just starting out. but i've started a


my week. *makin' it rain edition* 

this was an eventful week. there was a huge birthday party (both for a friend, and for a bridge) complete with fireworks, and a big sunny national holiday. the theme of the friend's birthday party was 'bling it'. we got 'so much ice, we could freeze new york'. do the kids still say 'ice' in reference to 'bling'? actually, do the kids still say 'bling' in reference to 'bling'...?

the woman of the hour. smile, birt'day girl! you're on 'my week'. happy birthday!

the entourage.

more shiny shiny bling and a special guest appearance. by the way, don't go see the new indiana jones movie (even though this bling has a crystal skull on it). it'll put you in a grumpy mood.

so, you know when you go to those art parties in williamsburg, and there's absinthe being served, and everyone is trying to one-up each other with their outfits, and there's an obscure movie with subtitles being projected onto a sheet that serves as a backdrop? yeah, sure nick, who doesn't? well i bet you've never seen anyone talking in a back corner like nothing's going on while someone dressed in tights is doing the splits while suspended from the ceiling...

once they ran out of sober, andrew decided to escape. so we did. though none of us who attended the party remember leaving...

the telectroscope in dumbo. the biggest webcam screen in all of manhattan. i didn't actually look into it, as the line was an hour long, and i had places to go and sunshine to absorb.

after not looking through the telectroscope, i met up with aaRon and his little picnic garden party. we had lots of cheese, and delicious beer from his homeland, and we littered the grass with cherry pits. it was perfect.

i cheated on my williamsburg bridge this weekend. but it was brooklyn bridge's 125th birthday, so i think she'll understand. after the dumbo adventures, i rode across the birthday bridge to a wonderful little bbq on a roof in the LES, and thus ended the lovely long weekend.

my week. *i'm phoning this one in edition* 

typical week for a boy living in new york city. clouds and rain. seven year anniversary. lots of concerts. bad jokes that i just can't seem to stop. and gays can now get married in california.

feet at botanical gardens.

happy birthday, yiyi.

i've been missing me some swedes. so on tuesday, i got my swedish fix with lykke li at bowery.

cut copy at studio b. hope this doesn't get taken off this blog because of copyright infringement. hell, can hardly even tell who it is...

the cut copy fans.

the blacks at union pool.

karen had an opening at her store on friday, and ah, there it is: the ole' "cock in the pants" joke. never gets old.

speaking of jokes. hey, michael jackson, why don't you get the fuck out of my sun...soon. thanks.

this is rory. she's a black lab/rot mix, and she's my princess. she loves treats, and since she's so obedient, she gets a lot of them. i want a rory of my own. and she's our pet of the week.

I've been meaning to post about my new guest blogging endeavor. For the past few weeks I have been writing show reviews for Ultragrrl's new website Almack's Dance Hall. Here is a review I did of the Dolly Parton show at Radio City. Che che che check it out!

California is gay gay gay. 

i'm here one day and look what happens...

thanks to these fine people (well, 4 of them anyway), gays can now marry in california, effective immediately. The Governator has even said he won't oppose the ruling. Looks like it's here to stay.

No doubt Jerry Falwell is turning over in his grave, on the exact one year anniversary of his death.

An ode to Alamo 

The Popcorn Cult did a little write up on our favorite movie house and showed off these amazing posters. I know you can buy some of them at mondotees, but none of the ones I really want. Come on Texas, where can I find them?

Big Brother 

The only real understanding I have of CCTV in Britan is through watching Torchwood and they use it to track down aliens. However, British band The Get Out Clause from Manchester have found a rather interesting use for CCTV. Unable to finance a music video they made use of CCTV and the Data Protection Act. After filming their video they requested all the footage from the government and stitched it together to make this.

Like you need another reason to vote next fall. 

According to Census statistics over the last 60 years, the incomes of middle-class families grew more than twice as fast under Democratic Presidents as they did under Republican ones.

AND the real incomes of working-poor families grew SIX TIMES as fast when Democrats held the White House.
