it's pouring out and has been for some time so i thought i ought to send a howdy to my friends who read this and let loose a loose update.|
i am currently in nyc, at my friend neighbor dan's beautiful brownstone in park slope. he and his are in ireland at the moment so i have free run of the place. sadly, the weather isn't allowing for proper use of their beautiful backyard, but still, it is cozy here and i am liking this city very much. here are some reasons why:
red bamboo in ft. greene - amazing vegan with the ex. pdx needs one of these.
spuyten duyvel in williamsburg - passed this place a million times before but never realized they have a lush backyard which compliments their big glasses of wine nicely.
animal collective on the harbor - kind of boring and they didn't play any of the hits i was hoping for but i have wanted to see them for so long, i kind of didn't care.
my friend jonny fenix's art show - a good reminder that pdx peeps are the sweetest.
i invented a new word - pharm-a-que.
freeman's alley - i'd tell you how to find it but i forget. the harder to find, the more delicious the food.
hanging out with tranny dealers in thompkins square park - i bought a digital camera so i have pictures to prove it when i get home.
shooting my mouth off - some douchy guys were laughing at an indian man who was being put into an ambulance. i overheard one of them say, "babaloo is baba-out!" so i replied, "baba-you is baba-stupid." why weren't any of you there?
anyway, there is lots more. LOTS. the book launch was quite fun, if a little stressful, and i got to shoot shucks with michel gondry for some time, so i'd say that it was a success. my publisher took me around to a bunch of bookstores in manhattan to sign books and everywhere we went the books were out on that one island i always walk to first. it was pretty breathtaking. at one place it was placed between david lynch and raymond pettibone. hot dang. i think it's probably available everywhere now so feel free to find it in your town. if you can't find it, let me know and i will make sure heads roll.
back to wagon and the house of broken hearts thursday. xo.
