Movin' On Up

Hey everybody.  Sorry for the lag between posts, but the last week has been a whirlwind. In addition to my normal writerly responsibilities — which this week are packed into a mere four days because of a crazy-ass wedding I'm attending in Omaha — I've also been moving . . . into Casey's old place.  Weird, no?

That's right. In addition to taking his job, I've also nabbed his apartment. And some of his furniture. And some silver platters I'm assuming were wedding gifts. And his cats . . . OK, that's a lie. I hate cats, but if there are any other remnants of Mr. Rae-Hunter left in Burlington, I suppose I'll assume those as well. Perhaps I'll check Pure Pop.

It's actually a totally kick-ass apartment. My girlfriend, Joanna, and I made the leap — well, not THE leap, but A leap, anyway — and moved in together last night. This is new territory for me and frankly, it's a bit frightening. But the first 18 hours have been bliss-ish! Although, my sweet little baby-eating pit-bull, Buckley, is freakin' the fuck out. Can't win 'em all.

Anyway, I apologize that there's not more of musical substance to this post, and also regret that "The Man" removed the Sarah Silverman clip from my last post. I hope people checked it out, cuz it was fuh-nee. Here's something to tide you over until next week.

Kinda sounds like Lee "Scratch" Perry, doesn't it?

When I get back, I'll tell you all about the afore mentioned crazy-ass wedding, as well as the Best Wedding Reception Ever.

I'm also working on a pod-cast that should done sometime next week.

Until then . . .

i see your Fenslerfilm and raise it one "porkchop sandwiches!"


funny, I'm supposed to go to a wedding in Omaha as well. Not until the end of the month though.


I want you to post a Youtube video of Buckley chasing his tail, catching it, and spinning slowly, panting, to the floor, still holding his tail in his mouth, because I'm sure that's what he's doing riiiiiight... now. And right about now he's getting up, tail wagging, slobber flying everywhere. Wait, what's that behind me? A tail? I'm so nervous! Repeat.

See you in about a week.


congrats on the new apt! also, the smittens didn't break up! they're playing a suprise show at the monkey tonight and for free!
see you there?


But you're supposed to be dead!! That means you're a g-g-g-ghost!

Unfortunately, we have to leave at 7a.m. tomorrow morning so my evening activities will be somewhat curtailed tonight. But rock out, and watch out for those Jazz Guys. They're sneaky.

And Ari, you really shouldn't poke fun at the mentally handicapped.


Uhh... GI Joe?? Dude: that shit is sooo 2000. What else you got up your sleeve, TROOPS?

Hang on, have you heard??: Phish broke up!!


olo, brutal. yeah, this was more like 1999. Can i get a Hampster dance up in this Arpanet?


wait wait, i got another one...

"All your anacronisms are belong to the last fucking century."

ok, done. ;D


Cue "Star Wars Kid" and dancing banana....


Way to take over my life.

No matter -- I'm livin' it up yuppie-style in
DC. Ever see (or read) American Psycho? I'm like Patrick Bateman, but without the abs. Also, my fridge isn't stuffed with the chopped up bodies of local call girls. Yet...


Casey's latest D.C. music review--

"Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite."


Casey did always remind of Patrick Bateman.

And Duke is actually a good album, not in any ironic tongue-in-cheek sense either.


Well excuuuuuse me! If you're looking to me for cutting edge web-geek entertainment, you've come to the wrong place.

Obvious insights and dated humor? That I can do.


BTW, Neil, I already used the Phish breakup joke. That's soooo last week, dude.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go hang upside-down in my new lair and catch some Zs while there's still daylight. The transformation is almost complete. BWAHAHAHAHA!


You know, we laugh but the Burlington Free Press is still drying their tears that they don't get to run another front-page feature. Maybe they'll do a pull-out section on Trey's probation.
