Man, I am so smart and in such profound touch with the universe, which, as we all know, according to superstring theory, contains at least eleven dimensions (as opposed to seven), six of which are collapsed into what resembles one dimension, which is consistent with the ancient teachings of Kabbalah...

Re: but we love you, sean

so i think the board is getting you a dog? the kind of dog that barks? and we've trained him to bark "Ri ruv ru" like that dog from the little ceasars' commercial of yore. or the sample of the dog barking "ri ruv ru" at the top of the beastie boys' "sureshot." See, Bex, we gotta talk a little about...

Regarding Omphale's interpretation of Elliot Smith's suicide

In fact, I'd like to posit that our own John Roderick is a testament to the fact that very smart, creative people can overcome the temptations of depression, forge much better lives for themselves, and come out better artists for it.

Re: Maxwell's in Hoboken last night...

I saw you in brooklyn at southpaw...
you danced your ass off


Actually Bex and I were the people dancing our asses off. "Dorking out" may be a better description. Not that the Barsuk Mafia wasn't dancing, I'm sure. We just dance bigger. Can't help it.

Diary

Hey, mister, no diary entries in over 2 weeks? What's up with that? Once I've read all of _Slate_, checked my email for the seventeenth time, and spent waaaaay too much time on Friendster, I'm at a loss. Please provide new reading material. What, I'm supposed to, like, work when I'm at work? Sheesh!

Manz, loved yr. hair, btw. I was totally envious of it from across the bar. My chunky highlights didn't turn out nearly so well. Ah, that's because I'm fortunate enough to have a BeautifulGayAustrailianHairdresser as a friend. I recommend everyone get one. They can be found at swanky lounges with e...

I did look for multicolored hair, but all the hipsters with streaked hair kept me off-balance. We were pretty easy to spot--the group of awesome lameasses jumping around like maniacs during the set? Yeah, high-five. I know it, baby, I was standing right behind the three of you the whole time. I sup...

Re: mimi

I can't listen to a song without trying to figure it out. It's kind of a glitch I have. I know, I know, I hear you -- I used to do the same thing, particularly when I was a big Tori Amos fan in high school, and that's exactly why I've kind of abandoned the Search for Meaning. Most of the time. I wa...

Ooh, Meg, does that mean you'll be at the Bowery Ballroom tonight? Come up and say hi! I'll be the chick with the red, orange, and yellow hair, and that's as much as I know. Maybe I'll be holding a sign that says something like, "Michael Shilling, you're so fucking cool!" But probably not. I'm rarel...

mimi

Meaning is so overrated, man... For me, it's the feeling in that song -- the first time I heard it, at ye olde world-famous Mercury Lounge (where I'd gone to see Mr. Stringfellow and was wowed by his openers), it was like putting on a heavy black dress and wading into the Mississippi. Moreso on the ...

On a totally different note, but 'cause this thread is still active:

Michael told me a while back they were playing "Mimi" as a hard-rock song these days -- any word on that?

And Michael, where in the hell are you, baby?

Hipster Jingles

You know, the Apples in Stereo are never gonna sell out the Meadowlands or have action figures with matching outfits to collect. The Walkmen are not gonna buy seventeen Pathfinders or sue the Enquirer. When they license their songs to ad agencies and TV shows, they're providing quality music to a gr...
