Ow wow...

Ow wow, David Byrne and I have the same taste in music. Dave, not to DMCA compliant, is it? I remember being with this girl he growled at. I almost barfed on him too. Dave Eggers was there too. Ask me about that next
time you see me. I don't see Of Montreal on his list. And last I checked, he has a much fatter place than the shit hole I spend $1550 a month on that he could have had for like $200 when his band was playing the site of a new starbucks.

I gotta new comp ready to roll. Some shit is a year old. Some shit you just cant get. Comment me your address and I'll ship it to ya. Throw it on with a six pack or a bottle o vodka, and party time.

It's the end of the world as we know it...

...and I feel fine

This week, 50 Cent became the first artist since 1964 to score four simultaneous top-10 hits on Billboard's singles chart. "Candy Shop" and "Disco Inferno" — from his chart-topping album The Massacre — and the Game's "Hate It or Love It" and "How We Do" tracks, which feature 50 on guest vocals, are sitting at #1, #5, #6 and #8, respectively. The Beatles were the last act to achieve such a feat, with songs dominating the chart's top five spots.

The Flaming Lips played a shit ass free party for Mazda here in NYC, and true fans got pissed when they were told they were too fat to come in. I guess I can't complain, I did get to see them at a dot coms Christmas' party a few years back.

Well, at least I have the new eels and Radar Brothers records chock full of sad sad songs to keep me company.

Austin, here I come.

I am never moving from this apt.

In addition to the new Whole Foods opening 3 blocks from my place tomorrow, new rumor is a Trader Joe's is now set to open in Union Square as well. When I left San Francisco for Texas the first time, Trader Joe's was the number one thing I missed. I was lucky enough to live on the same block as a Joe's when I moved to LA.

Once both stores are open, everyone is invited over everynight for dinner.

Record shopping in the east village/hanging art

I just took a walk this morning. There is this antique shop on 4th ave that always has amazing stuff. I stop to ask how much a pew out front is. $500. OK, well maybe not today, but I saw a pile of records. Being that I have a record player and no TV, I am always on the lookout for great records. I was able to pick up Neil Young's out of print electro record called Trans on eBay this week for $2.

Living with Michelle was great because she had great records that I sorely miss. So back to this antique shop, and replacing records that I used to listen to living with Michelle. I was able to pick up the Cars s/t and The Stones "Emotional Rescue" a record I would have casted off before getting into one night (morning?) with Phil in Michelle's kitchen. I also found Ace Freeley's solo record with New York Groove. Michelle put this on a great comp. It's my theme song right now. One of KISS' over looked gems. I also picked up Bruce's Nebraska, cause it was in good condition, and it's really the only Bruce I can listen to start to finish. I got scammed on Ray Charles' Love+Genius=Jazz, as the record wasn't in the slipcase. I got a good piece of art for the wall though.

Speaking of art on the walls, I've finally started hanging some of thier pieces I've collected over the years, to make this place feel more like home.

People that you can only see here..

Thanks Fay for taking me to the exclusive screening of Millions. Danny Boyle did a Q&A afterwards with the 2 kids.

At the Apples in Stereo in store this afternoon, Jeff Mangum was there. He put out the best record ever.
