Today was the first day of crab season and a glorious one at that.

I got my license from good old Linc's (always full of semi-grumpy but appreciated advice, that one).

After a semi-late night at the Shabazz Palaces release show, I got up at the crack of dawn this morning and my old friends Josh, Jason and I took the boat out. We dropped three crab pots off the south end of Hat Island (aka Gedney Island but everyone calls it Hat).

We didn't get too much this first time out (3 Dungeness and 5 Red Rocks) but the boat is running great and I'm looking forward to many more trips this Summer.



Getting friendlier day by day.
I believe she learned this particular maneuver from Jeans.

I haven't had a chance to watch the whole thing but I think this is worthy of note – The Murder of Jean Seberg is an hour-long conceptual film "inspired by the controversial and shocking death of the all-American actress Jean Seberg in 1979," produced by Daphne Guinness with filmmaker and photographer Joe Lally.

The Straight-Arrows that Nonetheless Get It

On this week's installment of The Sound of Young America, Jesse Thorne interviews Glenn O'Brien, most recently the author of How To Be A Man. It's worth a quick listen – at this point in his life, with all of his various experiences, O'Brien is on the level of Vince Aletti or Steven Heller as both a primary and secondary source of interesting information.
