listening too long to one song (luxe and reduxe)

the weekend, in alphabetical order.
alcohol - have i not learned from my past mistakes that i should not mix?
beer - i had many of these.
canadians - 200,000 living in new york!
dumb dodohead - see A
electric version - the best album of the oughts.
fuck - as in "fuck, i have a hangover and it's only 7pm." or "fuck, i just threw up in front of our door, dan." or even "fuck braden looper."
giant robot new york - sorry to have missed the grand opening on saturday but canadians were calling.
hoboken - maxwell's is such a great place to see a show. getting home to brooklyn though is not much fun.
it's only divine right - this was the brooklyn set opener, only i missed it cause i had to pee and i refused to revisit the portopotty. christy and i went to jim and mary's apartment to do our business 1) in a smell-free environment 2) where it was lit 3) where there was toilet paper. call me a city mouse!
jalapeno - thinking it was a piece of bell pepper, i popped one into my mouth and suffered for the next 15 minutes.
kir royale - the beginning of my demise
long lost niece - np's kathryn was a fantastic vocal fill-in for neko
mets - the metsies take two out of three from the stankees. a sweep would have been divine, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad!

oh canada - we stand on guard for thee. thank you for the good music our dear neighbors of the north
pimms cup - continuing my demise, i mean my slow descent
queen - canada is a consitutional monarchy.
rush - no, not those canadians but as in bum rush the stage. who would have thought?
sing me spanish techno - my favorite song off the upcoming new pornographers record, twin cinema
tb - you were a jerk 10 years ago and you're still a jerk!
use it - track 3 off twin cinema!
vomit - don't worry i cleaned it up
water - snapple bottled water ain't half bad.
x-plosion - as in jon spencer who performed with the opening band the sadies
yo la tengo's james mcnew was in the house! sweet!
zumpano - is carl newman's old band. they put out two records on subpop. you should hear them.

this is an amazing post. you should make this a regular feature.

let's move to canada!

two goals for you this summer:
1. don't mix
2. remember to bring bugspray wherever you go.

I still say the long lost niece should be called Trapper.

And yes, very good post. Nice mention of Rush!

Can I borrow your Zumpano CDs?

I love themes! A shame no one played "O Canada" - great anthem.

An excellent post, just a couple of things.
Pimms should be served with cucumber, orange, strawberry, and mint. I do hope you got all of the above, otherwise it really wasn't Pimms.
Please don't be beastly about the Queen. She's all we have. She's not Canadian, they borrow her.

Re: Pimms Cup recipe linked to from this splendid blog (or as I prefer, "I'll have a Pimms No.1, ice and a slice, love"):

Yield: 1 serving

WHAT??? That's a bloody travesty, one serving indeed. Better be a bloody big glass.

Or rather (for clarity's sake) a big serving.
