Re: Get a blog—and some human rights!

The old url automatically redirects, so Adam's penis is not immediately in any greater danger of disintegration than it was previously. That would be very horrible.

Thanks for recommending Sam Amidon way back when; I've loved hearing him this summer. I'll check out Muhly.

And if you do he'll get a ribbon!

Great moments in penile integrity"Why this is worthy of publication".

No previous report has described a patient placing metal radiator hose clamps in a tandem arrangement on his penis and keeping them there for a long period of time (6 months in this case).

On the live music tip, I caught The Faint at the Cat's Cradle on Friday and they are fantastic and their new album is also very, very tasty. A band called Jaguar Love opened for them who were, to be honest, kind of awful.

I'd forgotten about the Amidon/Muhly show in New York this Saturday. Thanks, Ben.

"Johnny Whitney's vocals have been described as 'like Robert Plant on steroids, or Perry Farrell after a sex change'."

Adam should change "Home for the heteronomous" to "Home for the heteroginormous."

'like Robert Plant on steroids helium'

Arrive put on the best show I've seen this summer. And their special encore performance of "Thunder Island" on alto sax, bass, drums, and vibes was a thing of rare beauty.

Meanwhile, all New Yorkers should go see Getachew Mekuria with The Ex free at Lincoln Center tomorrow (6PM, I think?). If you don't, you're crazy or stupid and I feel bad for you, because holy shit they were amazing when I saw them in Boston. Possibly they're also playing in Chicago for free today? I forget.

I was; I was. I'd forgotten about that. I'll put that CD in the mail. Then I'll get on with the business of learning to live with my shame.

You and jam-tease Rfts can comfort each other.


There's nothing I love more than complaining about people who offer to send me stuff for free. It makes me feel real big-hearted, you know?

This, from a blog post about them:

It is an odd combination and sometimes the high pitch shrieking can be a bit much but they are worth checking out

is a very nice way of saying that this:

'like Robert Plant on steroids helium'

should be written as:

'like Robert Plant on steroids helium and coke'.

That said, they had lots of energy and their hearts were in it and the kids seemed to like them.

This is making me feel bad because I was in maryland last week and didn't go to the baltimore show.
