oy vey, what a week its been. we made it to chicago record time, and without incident. its been a great visit, and has really solidified our desire to move back. not to take anything away from atlanta, cause its a great city too but the seclusion is getting a bit much to deal with. i actually prefer atlanta, as a city, to chicago, but home is home, i guess.
on another note, i find it strangely frightening the amount of people who google the phrase “ball stretching” and they find this here joint. i dont find it frightening that they find this place but the amount of people who actually are looking for info on ball stretching. is this some kind of fetish i am not aware of?
last night the wife and i hit the city and we ended up, after a couple of prior stops, at darkroom, 2210 w chicago. its a great joint with some one of the coolest staffs in the city. peforming at darkroom was an interesting local chicago band interestingly named team band. they reminded me, at least live, of a more focused and slightlier heavier cap n’ jazz or a gay ted leo. team band’s front man, greg drama, is amusing to say the least. not a great vocalist, but when you are as engaging as he is you really dont need to be.
the past week i have been listening the hell out of orphans – which is phenomenal in case you have not digested it yet. here is part one of the much circulated, but in case you missed it, storytellers set with the storys included.
