But you can't have both

It worked so well last time, we're doing it all exactly the same this time around! As you may recall, MOTICO played a [BLISTERING/PUMMELING/MIND-BLOWING/LIFE- ALTERING/THOUGHT-PROVOKING/ADEQUATE] set at DJ Mojo's birthday a few weeks ago. That was fun but we were informed that only Jason really took advantage of the Open Bar during our set. So to give you teetotalers another chance to fill up on free PBR and cheap liquor, we're playing another show during the 8-9PM Open Bar at Trash next Wednesday, August 2nd. We'll be joined by the ever-rowdy Dirty Magazine, who surely won't disappoint, either in performance or unhealthy behavior.

It's a Wednesday, it's an open bar, Trash is air-conditioned to an arctic degree. Dig it.

I'm moanin' all the morning

Dear Buzz,

I'm sorry for the poor quality of the coffee I made this morning. I'm not sure why it was so bad, but now that I'm in the office and consuming this Flavia stuff, I really the full extent of the inadequacy of my coffee-preparing skills this morning. I don't know where it all went so wrong, normally I get the measurements right, and the coffeemaker seems to work fine. But something was way off: the coffee was somehow both too weak and yet overly bitter at the same time. It tasted strangely of soap, but I may have just gotten too much soap in my mouth while in the shower earlier.

I'm not sure if you even had any of this sub-par coffee (somehow I drank like two cups), but I apologize in any case. At this point in my life I should know how to make coffee. While I have been known to drink days-old coffee rather than make a new pot, I really thought I had a handle on the process. It's a major setback, yes, but I'll find the strength to go on somehow.

I can't fight this feeling any longer

Ah, there's few things I enjoy more than the feeling of having a meeting cancelled. Even if it's not something I'm totally dreading, like the conference call I was supposed to be on in 15 minutes. It wasn't an important meeting, but now that it's been cancelled, the wave of relief that flows over me makes it feel like I've just been given a stay of execution from the governor. This frees up my morning to peruse real estate listings and look for band shows to see (oh hey, Motico is playing Wednesday, August 2nd at Trash) or incite flame wars on various web sites. Then again, I guess I should just keep doing job-related stuff but that reduces my joy at the removal of this conference call.

The last man standing is saying bring on a little bit more

Yay, the heat wave is over! Now that things are back to normal I cna resume complaining about the usual stuff, like my commute. Today when I got on the A train, there was a dude in one of those fabric folding chairs, smack dab in the middle of the car. As we rode along, he kept nodding off until he totally fell asleep, looking like a suburbanite after a long Independence Day at the Civic Center. The train wasn't super crowded so nobody minded too much, but how did he know it wouldn't be crowded?

I've seen people bring their own chairs on the train before, but they're usually very compact so the people don't take up too much space. A good rule of thumb is, if your chair is big enough to have a cup-holder, then it's too big to use as auxillary seating on the subway.

Of course, when I take my chair on the subway, well, that's a completely different story.

Why do you build me up

How is it that I've been alive this long and never knew there was a company called "Putzmeister?" This changes everything.

So much for the afterglow

Kids celebrate on a small, long island off the coast of Manhattan

Weekends like this past one make me question my otherwise iron-clad work ethic. It seemed like everybody on the train this morning felt the same way. And when we exited the station, the sky opened up and dumped gallons of rain upon us. It's been nearly 2 hours and I still haven't dried out. At least the Fourth of July wasn't besmirched by this Inconvenient-Truth weather.

I learned yesterday that college kids will refrain form moshing when they're on top of a dubiously-maintained rooftop. However, this will not stop them from tossing firecrackers and water balloons at each other (and invariably, at innocent bystanders). Nobody fell off the roof at least, although I had my eye on a couple of troublemakers I wouldn't mind losing to the sidewalks of The Shwick. The neighborhood, by the way, was replete with illegal fireworks (zero tolerance policy, huh?) which made the evening like a slightly safer version of a night in Tel Aviv. Amazingly, the show (8 bands from 4 to 10pm) didn't appear to get in trouble with the cops, and no lasting damage seems to have taken place (aside from possible hearing damage).

The weekend was full of other firsts, including a last-minute cookout in the backyard (I can't believe this is the first one we managed to pull together), my first trip to Webster Hall to see Lightning Bolt and Boredoms (it's not that bad folks; I mean, I wouldn't go there unless there was a real justification, but it'll do in a pinch). Also of course there was the debut of M02C0, the borg'ed up version of Motico. We are now 37% machine. I think we pulled off the show pretty well, and there were actually some people there which was heartening. Going on first is always kinda hard but things went fairly smoothly over all. Plus we learned we can fit most of our equipment in a livery cab and still have room for groupies. And if I really play pretend, I can imagine the cabbie is our personal valet and the rusty Caprice we're riding around in is our tour bus. An active fantasy life is necessary, especially on days like today.
