Warlocks New Album!!!!!!!

What I'm Listening To Right Now: The Strokes - Last Night

Oh, Oh, Ho, Ho. The Warlocks have a new album that came out Tuesday. I loved loved loved the Phoenix album of theirs and now they have a new one.

Def check out the "Music Player" at Warlocks.com. There will be two songs waiting for you there.

1) It's Just Like Surgery - Awesome. Awesom. Aweso. Awes.....AWESOME! Especially the video! Click the video link and watch the video of you have broadband.

2) (some other song) - It's o.k. Not the best one on the album, but def a Warlocks jam.

I like the Warlocks though.


I just got up from typing on my Powerbook to restart "Last Night". What a great song. (It's the 2nd best Strokes single after 12:51 which is A-mazing. "I Can't Win" is best Strokes song overall.)


I wanted to go to that Violent Femmes show at the East Coast Surfing Championships tonight. Alas, my bro-in-law is in town for the Beach Week that I'm leaving for tomorrow; therefore, I didn't go. I bet it was a good show.

Anywho, I was reading Portfolio weekly that I picked up at 99 Main St. restaurant recently. There was an interview with Violent Femmes lead singer Gordon Gano who said, "The Strokes..." when asked about which NYC bands he liked the best. Duh! Those damn Strokes haunt my mind and dreams and every orgasm is strangely filled with Albert's smile.

I can't wait till 23 years from now when the Strokes play the East Coast Surfing championships It'll be great. They'll be in their "reunion tour" but Fabrizo will be replaced due to Drewlove-complications (they'll still be hitched) and Nick won't be the bass player because he'll be touring with his Jazz combo. But Albert will still be there! (Sweet-sweet Albert.)


I got some bad news the other day. Needless to say, God works in mysterious ways and I'll have to play this hand how it lays.

Fuckin' Shit!


I'm sorry. I didn't mean that. I don't swear usually. Just when times get tough and emotion takes over.... Drat that Mother Nature. Curse you! It's just that sometimes you think you'll have a critter to call your own...but then you'll find out that you'll have to wait...

I just feel so....disappointed.


Jaime....I Love You.


I'm headed on my week long vacation tomorrow morning (great timing in light of recent events).

Go and listen to the Warlocks Player on the Warlocks.com site. If you like them, buy the album.

Then go and dig out some Strokes and dream.

Listen to "Is This It" and then "Room on Fire" and then Dee aRe Ee Aae eMm about what the new one will sound like.

I hope it's good.

Talk to you soon.

Grandma Show Update.

The Grandma Show went off Saturday without a hitch. I played outdoors on the deck and dodged the bugs whilst strumming and yodeling my little head off.

Catch the Wave people! Grandma says I'm going to be BIG!!

Jack White Hates Balls

Also, I just found out that the Cloud Room is coming to Norfolk next week. Aug 27th at some place called Station Two. Any idea where that is?

I like this band, but I can't go to the show 'cause that's when I'm leaving on my well deserved vacation. Still, where the heck is Station Two? Is that one of the new places in Ghent? Near the New Belmont? (Update: Aha! I have found it: www.station2.net)

Tonight is "The Teeth" at Relative Theory. I really want to go, especially now that Volcano Roll is playing their debut show. I found them their drummer!

I can't go tonight though 'cause my grandma is coming in to town. (The grandma who I made my "For Grandma..." cd for.) So I'll be up at Mom and Dad's eating dinner, visiting, and singing some good, quirky, sweet songs like:

Been Swearin'.mp3
October Ride.mp3
Never Made Love (to a woman).mp3
Paul Reveres Horse.mp3

and, of course,the numbers off "For Grandma..." (Click to hear two minute samples).

(Update #2: I will be going to the show tonight. Grandma show will be tomorrow night.)

O.K. o.k. it's Friday which is Me-day around here (because I get like 80% less hits on Friday) but that's enough of my showing off.

OH Yeah! One more thing:

Aug 26 is the Violent Femmes! Wow. The Violent Femmes. They're playing the East Coast Surfing Championships. That's where I saw the Boggs a few years back.

VA Beach in NYTimes

There's a little article about VA Beach restaurants in the NY Times this morning.

Also, I saw Mad Hot Ballroom this weekend at the Naro Cinema. It was so cute. It made me want to send my kids to that Tribeca school 'cause those kids were so articulate (for little kids).

When the Tribeca teacher, Allison, was crying all the time, our theatre bust out laughing. We couldn't help it because it was so sweet, but it was funny (you can see how touching she is in the clips on the MHB website).

Jaime also noticed that Charlotte Jorgensen (from Dancing with the Stars) was a judge at the final competition.

Hank Williams On American Masters!

I rushed home from work because on WHRO PBS Norfolk is a repeat of the American Masters show about Hank Williams! I'm watching it now and I'm tearing up 'cause it's so this music is so beautiful. It's on now if you're local.


Guess this is a good enough time to announce that operation vanity project has reached a new level:

In the tree right in front of my house is a bird nest. I've been watching the blue bird take care of its babies for a few weeks now. I started painting recently and here is my interpretation of the view out my front window. I'm not totally finished with it, but here is where I'm at so far.
