Don't mess me round
No energy to post today, I've been in the OFFICE all day today fer chrissakes. But I have a new computer and a whole new set of computer-related problems to go with it. But the good news is I haven't really done any actual work today!

Go see Motico tomorrow at Freddy's!

I quit, I give up, nothing's good enough for anybody
I got roped into doing a conference call today for no other purpose than to corroborate information I sent out in an email earlier this week. Yes, I had to take time out of my busy day because the people I work with wanted to see if I really meant it. When it was determined that, yes indeed, the information I sent out was accurate and faithfully sent, the call was over. That's it. I'm done.

Saturday night's all right

Motico plays the Backroom at Freddy's Bar this Saturday! Last weekend was the weekend of parties (and hangovers), but what's going on this weekend? Absolutely nothing besides our show! What's that? CMJ-what? I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. Look, chances are if you read this site you live within walking distance of Freddy's Bar, so you might as well show up. Hmm, that seems weird, but nearly everybody I know lives somewhat near this bar. Maybe because it's only a couple blocks from the Atlantic/Pacific subway. or MAYBE because it's the nexus of the universe?! Maybe.

The show will be a lot of fun, as most events are at Freddy's. There's just something about that place. Speaking of which, if you break your leg and can't make it to Stupid's show on Friday, check out what's going on at Freddy's lately. Ever since I saw Shaun of the Dead, I've been thinking about buying the rights to turn it into the first Broadway Zombie Musical Romantic Comedy. It's totally a natural. Plus everybody else has been cashing in on this movie-to-musical thing, why can't I? But anyway, somebody is trying to beat me to it: Friday night at midnight there will be a performance of Night of the Living Dead: The Musical! Pretty cool, huh? Actually, an enterprising young scenester could probably get to both shows, since Stupid goes on at 9.

But don't forget Motico's show Saturday. Do not attempt to multitask beyond drinking and rocking out.

Salad Days

Now here's an interesting marketing ploy

Watching the Presidential debate at a party was a really good idea. It got everybody fired up and talking, as we tried to fathom why in hell Bush would start talking about the Dred Scott Decision. Unfortunately, because the debate had angried up my blood, I overdid it with the really nice 14-year old Scotch Phillip kindly provided. I had only meant to spend a short time there, as Josh and José were throwing a birthday party for their ladyfriends down the street. I did eventually make it, but I think I was already on the downhill side of my witty self, so if I said anything extra-stupid, I apologize.

I'm a friend to all the little people Andrea gets her freak on
Buzz also enjoys the presence of the little people
Evidence that I did indeed make it to Jessie's party

I like you on the outside, I don't like you on the inside

I totally spaced on the Open House New York thing this weekend, but I did manage to get down to see the Montauk Club. This is the incredibly ornate terra cotta affair down on 8th Ave near Prospect Park. I'd seen a little of the interior in the film Illuminata, directed by neighbor John Tuturro (and featuring OU alumni Kohl Sudduth). I was a little disappointed to find the inside of the building no match for the outside. Don't get me wrong, the inside is really nice, but not really anything I hadn't seen before in some other houses. This led to a conversation with a friend about the state of modern architecture, how it seems nobody designs buildings with really strikingly beautiful facades any more. Even your basic Victorian brownstone has a panache that modern buildings don't even attempt to approach. Why did that more ostentatious style fade out? I'll take the old style over the faceless monoliths they build nowadays.

See more shots of the Montauk Club.
