You've Been Talking 'Bout Your Self Again

Some random stuff for yehhhhh.… We went to The Fader magazine party last night with Chad and our Seattle buds Jennifer and Matt. Rodriguez (above, at Detroit bar The Sewer ca.1972) played with a backing band more than ably led by my man Jonny. Check out this little NPR feature on Rodriguez and pick up the CD from Light in the Attic—psychedelic Bob Dylan is the best way to explain it, it's great.… Video was provided by Philly son System D-128.… Chad played a really good DJ set later at Lit, rife with Toto and the English Beat and Beat Happening and The Outfield, and somehow it all worked.… New York Fashion Week starts today.… A Special Way of Being Afraid has been featuring some really well thought out, fun to read thoughts on the politics of the moment—as well as its regular stream of other interesting stuff like a new Kings of Leon song and the size of Africa.… Looks like Palin may have riled up the wrong base: in the 24 hours after her speech, the Obama campaign raised ten times as much as McCain.… And finally, here are some random photos I meant to blurg but never got around to.

Welcome to Brooklyn.

Lovely colors on this vent behind Barn.

Equally lovely brunch at Flatbush Farm. Good hashbrowns are impossible to find on the East Coast, and theirs are the best.

Awww, jeans. Look at those big mousers.

Emily at Lobo on Court Street. Still one of the best brunches around. Pacific Standard loves its brunch.

Tremendous cream.

My Hamptons-style bloody mary at Hundred Acres. It has clam juice and an oyster in it.

Emily looking West.

The Saint Felix Street block party is tomorrow (so is our going-away party, tomorrow night). Emily took this picture at the block party two years ago.

Thanks Strath! Glad ya'll liked the deejay set! I think Rodriguez is the only musician I ever want to listen to ever, now. And remind me, I have a pic of your name on the wall when 128 typed it on the screen. LOL. Sorry we had to run sat nite.
