hopefully everyone had an excellent weekend. mine was uneventful other than the fact that i fucked up my lawnmower. i am not mechanically knowledgeable in anyway and i didnt know there is such a thing as too much of a good thing at least when it comes to putting oil in said lawnmower. i pretty much put the whole bottle of oil into the reservoir and apparently thats a big no no. i dont understand why the hell they would allow you to put that much in when all it calls for only such a small amount? i think its a damn conspiracy set in place by the lawn mower manufacturers and their cohorts to screw over dumbasses like myself who dont bother to read/follow proper operating instructions. its always someone elses fault!
you guys ever check out this woot type site called jellyfish? its really an interesting concept. i have only checked it out at night/early am but they offer up one item and it goes down like 5 cents per second until someone buys it. in between items they have a contest that requires you to pick what you think is going to be the least popular choice amongst people voting. last night someone one 170 bucks, which is kinda cool for not really doing anything. on the sidebar is a instant messaging type of random discussion going on between everyone watching “the show.” its really a time waster if nothing else.
anyone go see richard buckner @ the earl on saturday? of course i didnt go. cause thats the way i do shit. i talk about it and then dont follow through.
mark your calendars for monday, 8.13 for neko case at the tabernacle. dont expect to see me there either not cause i dont want to but i will be outta town in cambridge, maryland for the week. anyone live around there and can maybe fill me on some stuff to do in the area. we are staying at a house on the bay and maybe looking to get out and see a show or two in the general vicinity. so, if you got any info hook a brotha up will ya? thanks.
in other non related news. outside of thinking she is total fucking pain in the ass, i am still undecided if lindsay lohan hot or not? you tell me.
speaking of the lovely atlanta ladies in the coathangers, they gots a new self titled record coming out, if is not already out. i have really dug everything i have heard from em in the past and judging by the first single i dont see why my admiration should wane. imagine if you will a more playful but equally as serious sleater kinney – i know thats a pretty lazy comparison but its mostly true.

on july 26, 1972 the rolling stones performed at madison square garden and here is that recording. this boot is commonly referred to as welcome to new york. tracks 1 – 6 are from the original tape and the rest are from the lp. the fine man commonly known as watchit on dime lovingly did some stuff do the recordings to make them sound as lovely as possible. thanks man!
