sun hotel's "oikos"

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

even with all the bullshit aka car break-ins, house break-ins, credit cards, cash stolen, etc, we’ve gone through and dealt with since moving to new orleans, there’s no place i would rather live. i know this sentiment is shared with most new orlenians, or at least the ones i run across. sure there have been a few dissenters, but you’ll get that no matter where you live.

which brings me to new orleans’ sun hotel and their recently released coast. they’ve has only been around a year, and they may just want to stop now, cause its gonna be hard to top their recently released coast. of course im joking, but if they’ve only been playing together a year, and were able to construct such an insanely awesome record, i fear they wont be able to top it, but out the other side of my mouth i will say it also brings me great hope for the future of sun hotel. the new orleans i know, sounds a lot like coast. i am not talkin bout the mardi gras festivities, the seemingly endless celebrations for just about anything, the tourists getting drunk on bourbon st. nope, im talking bout every day life in new orleans only slowed down from its already glacial pace, it’s the highs and the lows, the loves and the hates, the heat, the humidity, and the struggle. of course, one doesnt have to be from new orleans to fall in love with coast, but it doesnt hurt. the record has heart and passion, two things which i think are sorely missing from a lot of records being released today. definitely gonna a top ten’er… very highly recommended.

you can purchase/download coast for a name your price kinda deal via their bandcamp site. you can download their previous ep’s for free via their bandcamp site as well.

what's going on

Posted by gregor on Sunday, September 26th, 2010

2010-09-26 07.26.55

howdy! so here’s the story, if you care to hear it. on wednesday i sold my nikon d3000 on ebay, cause frankly i needed the cash. it pained me to do it, but when you got a family and stuff, you gotta do what you gotta do, i suppose. now, i was supposed to send it out on thursday, but i couldnt find the manual and by the time i did, the post office was closed. so, on friday, i left work a little bit early with the plan of coming home, boxing it up and going to the post office. when i arrived home, i noticed that the door was unlocked, or was it? when you do things a million times it just becomes automatic and you dont think about, but still it felt weird. i didnt think too much of it though. i walk into the kitchen to grab a beer to enjoy as a boxed up the camera. as i walked out of my kitchen i noticed my computer was not where i left it, but just figured the wife had moved it. when i noticed it wasnt where the wife usually puts it, i got a little suspicious. i then turned around, and noticed the camera box, w camera inside, was not where i left it either. oh fuck oh fuck, was what was running through my head. i then looked at the bottom of our tv cabinet, and of course my xbox 360, which i just got for my birthday in june, was also gone. me and my beer and my phone busted ass out of the house. i called the cops, and before they arrived i walked back into the house, figuring they were probably gone. man i was shaking though. i then walked back into the kitchen and noticed the door had been been kicked in cause it was fucked up. then noticed the a couple of pieces of the lock laying there on the ground, which ended up right by the fridge. not sure how i didnt notice it?

the cops showed up, did what they had to do and the crime showed up later. they got some prints from the door and hopefully they arent mine, but the bastards.

so, the long and short of it is, they walked away with my asus netbook, the d3000, the 360, my daughters little portable dvd player, my timbuk2 pc bag, and im sure a couple other things i have yet to realize. it freaks me out, and of course saddens me, that they went into her room and took her dvd player. it was clearly for a kid, why take from kids? fuckin assholes. of course i dont have insurance and the cash to replace any of this stuff.

the most awesome thing about this is my landlord has yet to show up, even though i called him within an hour of me finding out. dont you think if one of your properties had been broken into you’d be over there within a day or shorter? i dont get it. i had to put a deadbolt and a lock back on it…

postings will be sporadic until i can replace my pc, cause the one i am using now is very very temperamental. this post just took me about an hour cause as i type it will erase words then entire paragraphs, etc and of course i dont have a copy of vista to reimage it. so, with all that said, we’ll talk soon.

kelly kneiser of glossary releases free ep

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

when kelly, joey and the gang were in town for the hotsauce and living room tour, there was some mention of a kelly ep coming out sometime, but i didnt imagine that it would be this soon. im half way through the 7 song ep, and as you can imagine its lovely, and free. a bit about the ep: apparently, she isnt the songwriting type, or so she says, so she got a bunch of current or ex-murfeesboro folks including joey kneiser, james jackson toth (wooden wand), kent eugene goolsby (the only sons), jason yeary (hammertorch), casey strength and keith pratt to donate a song for the ep. you can read more about the players, etc and download it here.
