a quick recap of things of late that have been great and not so great. first, what je t'aime.
Song - Basically Joya II, but only like 2 blocks from us! This is really bad news for Thai Sky a couple streets down, as they have smaller portions and higher prices. Listmaker gives Thai Sky less than a year.
SXSW - I'll be going for the first time since 1997 and I am very exicted to catch a bunch of great shows and eat some migas.
All You Need Is Sticker Graphics - A book devoted to sticker designs by some of my favorite designers. Amazingly packaged in a plastic yellow box that has all the designer's logos molded into it. I don't think I'll ever grow out of my love for stickers. I wish Trend would revive their Stinky Stickers line from decades ago!
The Double at Knitting Factory/Laura Cantrell at the Allen Room in the Time Warner Center/Interpol at Radio City Music Hall - Maybe I'll start going to shows regularly again? I did see three shows last week - easily a record for me since 2002.
The Concretes' s/t album - I'm like 6 months late on this record, but dammit, this is good stuff!
Gilmore Girls episode "So...Good Talk" - The first 55 minutes were pretty good, but those last 90 seconds just slayed me! Also the scene with Lane yelling at her mom for being in her head? Priceless.
je vous deteste:
Duke/Carolina - As much as I love my Duke basketball, I am by no means a Blue Devils apologist. I think the Cameron Crazies are a bunch of overrated nerds who think they are a lot more clever than they really are. Shane Battier is the biggest fake ever! That said, Duke totally got screwed by the refs in the last seconds of the game. Allowing a timeout during that tie-up at halfcourt was bullocks. Duke did enough damage by themselves, but they got a couple of bum calls to aid in their loss. I still love you Christian Laettner, even if you are a beat-up pothead.
Chip Shop on Saturday Night - Please don't tell me my delivery is only going to take 20 minutes and then have it show up after an hour. Furthermore, cold chips are not pleasant.
Degrassi - The Next Generation - The latest story lines are totally wack. Everyone on the show needs a haircut (and yes, I'm talking to you Craig and JT).
Lost (The Hurley Episode) - ABC makes us wait this long for Hurley's back story and this is what they came up with? Lame!
The checkout lines at Whole Foods (Time Warner Center) - It's bad enough that I recently found out the founder of Whole Foods is some conservative businessman. But you think this branch, which I'm sure cost a bazillion dollars to build could have figured out a more efficient checkout process?
