ok so i think now that i have a job and some money i'm going to try and put out a 7" record by the recoys, the now defuct, pre-walkmen band that isn't jonathan fire*eater. I 'll put it out on a subsidiary of I Think Records, the st-louis-originated hip-hop label that i started w/ A-Double and DJ B-Money. but this subsidiary needs a name. any ideas?

thanks to liz for promising to provide the official walkmen west coast tour wedding dress pillow. check her blog if you're thouroughly confused right now.

those fucking brits.

will we all die in nuclear armageddon?

i heard on public radio that colonizing cultures' music empasizes the upbeat (marching shit like house and rock and waltz and hip-hop), colonized cultures' the downbeat (reggae/ska, go-go, etc..), as a rule.

reading Island by huxley right now. pretty cool. dense. bought the wind up bird chronicle by murakami today and can't wait to read it because

it's 4 am on a sunday morning and im exhausted but i love you, so:

just dropped a friend off. on the way we got stuck behind the new york times delivery people so we stole the sunday times from someone's driveway. east cost people: cherish your daily printed media. the LA times fucking sucks. i'm not doing anything tomorrow but reading the paper. cover to cover.

which reminds me. fuck all those new york bands. fuck my friends bands. flogging molly rules. they're my new favorite band for right now cause they're the pogues but punker.

which reminds me. I'm the "tour manager" for my friends the walkmen when they do their west coast tour at the end of this month. baiscally it's a free rock and roll vacation with my friends up to vancouver and i can't fucking wait.

been reading a lot lately. huxley, anais nin, murakami, borges. which reminds me. richard brautigan fucking rules in the same way that tom waits and leonard cohen rule.

i said "rules" and "fucking" a lot. fuck you.
