this was pretty good.  10 year anniversary of the first time I saw them.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Q: You know how I know I'm gay?

My assholeness knows no bounds.

The Hold Steady about a month ago.

Fucking amazing. Superlative superlative superlative.

I've got some shows coming up, but I probably won't see anything that good until November...

Hold Steady and Drive-By Truckers. Collision of awesomeness. If you enjoy beer and guitars, and that billing finds it's way to your town, do catch it.




Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

Frank Black earlier tonight.

Dude was on autopilot. But Frank Black's autopilot rocks harder and with more conviction than most bands can muster with all their youthful energy magnified and combined.

Bizarre crowd, though. It was a six dollar show at a horse track in Southern California. Most of the people there were sunburnt and drunk as hell yelling out Pixies songs.


Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

Yeah I saw Frank Black a couple weeks ago and it was pretty sweet.  First time I ever saw a legend perform with nothing but a guitar.  very intimate and very good.   

I recorded a taste:

Went to redeem my beer bottles for $ cash $ money $ at the local recycling center this afternoon and who do I see in the terminal next to me? You guessed it on your first try. Thurston Moore. Asked him if he wanted to come back to my place and jam in the basement but he politely declined. Could have been an awesome show.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Man man opening for Okkervil River as a sideshow for ACL Fest (which I'm skipping this year)

First time I ever saw Man Man was opening for OR, right before Six Demon Bag came out.  It was in a tiny room and I was right up front.  Now it's a larger venue and they're both bigger bands and I've seen them individual at least six times since, but I'm still super excited about the show.
