I'd go, 'cept Osman got me faced last night.
the woman of the hour. smile, birt'day girl! you're on 'my week'. happy birthday!
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.
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!
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.

new party news from james murphy
on the DFA message board:
"ok, pat and i are starting a new party here in nyc. it's a dfa party, sure, somewhere between my old apt party (which was very fun) and the dfa parties at studio b. it's called special disco version and it'll have it's homebase at a new club my friend has in manhattan called 100 lafayette at, well, you guessed it, 100 lafayette street."
guess andrew WK didn't lose his edge. er, ever had one...

giant rainbow spotted over south america.
or... maybe i've just been listening to in ghost colours too much.
previously in weird shit at my apartment:
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?
and another Amp commercial featuring my best friend from back in the day:
Add your own at postcards from yo momma.
I know the Manskes must have a genius email waiting to be shared. And if only you could tape those 'conference' calls, Jac.
on a personal note, love you mom (memaw in texas)
