Busy Week

Spent part of yesterday night working on work stuff. Tonight as well. Things are picking up on the work front, and it looks to be a pretty busy week or two coming up. Lame entry for tonight, but I’ve done nothing but work stuff so far. And now that I’m done, I want to get away from the computer for…

DJ Monastic, Clubfoot Residency

Almost two years back, Justin did his first gig at Clubfoot. Tonight marks another pretty big turn, as he’s been given an official residency there. From here on out, he’ll be tending the sounds every Sunday evening. Headphone hook, DJ Booth. What I think is most impressive about Justin is his focus. After grad school (where he got his Masters…

Dirty Found

Tonight there was a Dirty Found show at Corbett vs. Dempsey,which Liz and I attended. It’s been almost two years since my last Dirty Found show, so this was a nice chance to actually spend more than 5 minutes in attendence. Interior shot, entrance. Julie was working the front door, and I felt a bit awkward – we hadn’t really…

Case in point this afternoon, when we learned of the Newberry Book Fair (at the Newberry Library). Big big thanks to Gapers Block…

We hit a good number of areas, and got…

Tony Hard Rock Landscape

As I was leaving my apartment, I paused to take another “in progress” snapshot of the yard. The guys who were working on the stonework were still around (today was the first day I’ve seen so many folks working at once), and I asked to take their photograph. I’m not sure which guy is Tony (I think maybe far left),…

Liz’s Other Scooter

So a little backstory: Liz had a scooter prior to her Vespa. The original was a Vino, and it got stolen. After the theft, Liz bought the Vespa. A few months later, the Vino turned up abandoned, and the police recovered it. For the past few months now, the Vino has been at her folks’ place in Frankfort – minus…

Good to know I’m not the only one

To: FelixFrom: AlexSubj: Same Thing Happened to Me it was the summer of ’97 and it was hot (you were there you remember). I was living with Lloyd, Camellia, etc. and the thermostat was one of those round ones, the old kind. We hadn’t touched it since Spring. One day Camellia in the middle of a heatflash turned it to…
