Sadly, I have plans tomorrow

But if I didn’t, I’d totes be there:

Are you a crazed Of Montreal fan? Do you live in or near New York City? Are you 21 or older? Well do I have some good news for you. Of Montreal guitarist and all-around swell fella the Late B.P. Helium posted this message on the E6 Townhall:

hey kids,

there will be a small listening party for Skeletal Lamping at a bar in Manhattan tomorrow night, July 23rd.

the bar is called HI-FI. it’s 21+
the address is 169 Avenue A.

He also added that the record will be played likely between 10pm and 12:30am. Oh, and there’s a $3 beer special. In Kentucky, $3 beer isn’t exactly special; but I guess that’s New York for you, beer costs three bucks, but you get to hear the new Of Montreal record early.

that’s from YANP

Another bad way to die

I don’t know if anyone else saw this, but a body was found in a shed at McCarren pool yesterday. Since i’ve been to the pool about a gazillion times this summer, i was a little shocked and grossed out. (Read more here)

I told Jack about it and here were his thoughts…

me: yo
did you hear about this?
me: so scary
its been there for months!
Jack: WHAT
WHO COULD IT BE?!? who is missing from hipsterdom/whose body would send the best message to the hipster world that organized crime “ain’t gonna take anymore rattails’n’neon, ka-peeesh?!?”
o man
this is not something to joke about
me: i bet its a drunk dude- homelessperson
cold in the winter and died
Jack: 😦
so sad
never let them find my body
if I go missing
i just
i don’t want to be found
me: you just want to decompose somewhere?
Jack: meh i guess
or like
and then baked into cakes
and then feed the cakes
to cats
who like cake
Nom nom nom
it are my birfday
and then
give those cats haircuts
and then cut up my favorite clothes into tiny, cat-sized facsimile outfits of shit I would wear
and dress those cats up like tiny versions of me
and make a calendar
and then have a parade
maybe serve the leftover cake
to people this time
that’s all I want

Hot as balls


I love Lin-Manuel, I just saw In the Heights last weekend and it was amaaazin.  But jokes about balls are always good.

“It’s the dental floss of feminine fitness”

An alternative to sending lame dudes to the island..

NY Mag today has some interesting tidbits on scorned women taking revenge on men.  My favorite anecdote:

“Take, for instance, 23-year-old Kristina Caban, who persuaded a Guy Who Never Called to meet up with her at the Chelsea Inn — then Tasered him and used hot metal to brand an “R” on his torso.”

I generally say that the loser guys who don’t call back get sent to “the island for lost men” (see illustration below).

Once on the island, his number/email address is deleted (except for maybe a text message saying “FYI -you’re on the island” ..ahem, Liz).. and that’s that.  Sounds pretty tame to me, now.  Maybe I need a taser. hehe.

YAY! I’m going to see Kanye!

Glow in the Dark tour

Does this mean I have to stop saying “I hate concerts?”   Thank you Dan for the pre-sale code, because now I am the happiest girl in the world.

Blog of the Day: MyOpenBar.com

Your Guide to Free Booze

This is more of a mailing list than a blog but I thought I would post it anyways. It truly is your guide to free booze in the city. My Open Bar gives you a weekly schedule of promo events and parties with hella cheap drink deals or open bar. It also rates the events and provides clever little blurbs ala vice do’s and dont’s to help you decide whether they’re worth the effort. I feel like this would really come in handy when you have a guest in town and you don’t know what to do with them.

ps. i really like the banner art by Hope Gangloff. Check out her site here.

Who wants in?

Roy Lichtenstein @ Gagosian.. I love pop art, and this review is pretty great .. “Based on cartoons and mostly blond, they are anonymous, beautiful and often unhappily bothered, usually by men. Or, if you like, by boys.”  

That sums it up, pretty much.  Exhibit is up til June 28th.
