The Apples in Arcade/Stereo on Fire.

I found this on someone else's flickr and decided to jack it.

That's me standing and singing right behind the girl from the Arcade Fire. That was a magical show, and this is an eerie picture. I look like a ghost.

The night before, Susie took us to see the Apples in Stereo. Spin magazine was there and interviewed me. I used a co-workers name and made up what line of work I was in cause I didn't want the uh, extra attention.
Here's a link to the picture and article.

Neon Bible show video

Just got home from the Arcade Fire show.
For the encore they came into the audience for a sing along.

Here's the footage I took.

We went to the Dog show to see us some PPFLs

First of all, it's really, really cold outside today

Susie and I went to the 131st annual Westminster dog show last night at Madison Square Garden.
What's great about this show, if you get there early enough you can walk around and mingle with the talent in the bench section.

Here they are setting up for the show.

I got some new frames I ordered off the internet. Both are drastically different from each other. I'll get lenses put in them this weekend. What do you think?

I turn my camera phone on (and general update)

Back in January I went to Vegas for CES. I mentioned that here before, but I never posted pictures. I had my olde timey camera, but wasn't feeling it...I was dog tired from all the work (and play, heh). I took a few cell phone pictures, which always look crappy, but will provide some memories.

I took a trip to olde Vegas because new Vegas is so expensive and cheesy. Turns out, they've killed half of what you see in the pictures (the smoking cowboy, etc.) and the Horseshoe has turned into something else. they also placed a huge concrete dome over the area to make an open air mall. Basically an open air mall of shit.
Here are a few neon signs, but the area is really sad. Our cab driver said that they are about to renovate the area and make it all new Vegas-y. The days of Elvis and the rat Pack are long gone.

I was staying at the Saharah, which is cheap and gross, and I love it. The Beatles played there. And they have $5 tables, which are hard to find in new Vegas. It's basically the last of olde Vegas, but close to new Vegas. It'll prob be gone or renovated in 5 years.

The Saharah also had a cheesy 60s cover band, which ruled.

Susie and I went to see Peter Bjorn and John at the Bowery Ball room last week. We scored a table up top, so we got to relax and not have to deal with the potential of a shithead being a shithead right by us.

We liked the show, even through the blogosphere seemed not to. And the whistling on Young Folks was canned. I didn't really care.

The last cell phone picture is of the dancing cupcakes from the Cupcake Cafe on 18th street. We had a snack there this weekend when we went shopping. For some reason I was craving butter cream, so we ended up here for a good cupcake.

We're going to the Westminster Dog show tonight at Madison Square Garden. The Boston Terrier was beat out by a poodle (geez louise) in his category last night, so no BT's in the best off show category. We'll be in the nosebleeds, but still should be fun.
