The Rich Girls Are Weeping

08 May 2006

There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell. Wow, today's just completely gotten away from me. And then Firefox crashed and I lost a fantastic post that will have to wait until tomorrow.

I'm seeing Art Brut and blogger favorite Birdmonster tonight. Excited about the former, dreading the latter -- I intentionally avoided them during SXSW, that's how uninterested I am. So, should make for an interesting full report tomorrow, huh?

Art Brut -- Good Weekend (repost)
Art Brut -- Rusted Guns of Milan

Seen out and about this weekend at the John Vanderslice/Laura Veirs/Minus Story show: Mrs. Gerard Cosloy (nee Sally Crewe) escorted by the always dapper Mr. Jim Eno (of Spoon), sound dude extraordinare & man about town Jeff Byrd (who was in the company of long-lost TRGAW housemate Glamourous Glynis...), Shearwater percussion master Thor Harris, and former Silver Scooter Scott Garred -- among others! (BTW, the cupcakes were a hit! I wish I'd thought to take a picture.)

My mom writes about my grandfather getting older and his music collection on her blog -- it was hard to read, as his grandchild and a music collector.

So, the big question of the day is: Who leaked the fabled and unreleased Mountain Goats album Hail and Farewell, Gothenburg! this weekend? And was it really on the Good Hodgkins site, at least for a little while? Would I get in horrible trouble if I just posted "You're So Vain?" (Answers: Dunno. Yes, apparently. MOST DEFINITELY, SO PLEASE DON'T ASK.)

The Mountain Goats -- Alphonse Mambo

I had it up for a day or so but then removed it out of respect for John when I learned he was upset. Apparently he considers it a privacy issue. The fact that something of his leaked is not what he's upset about here -- it's that this particular thing got out.

That essay was the most beautiful thing I've read in a while.

Ryan: I figured it was probably something like that, considering the backstory as to why that album wasn't released and all. Good for you though, for being respectful of JD's request, it sets a good precedent for other bloggers.

BTW, I really like your site -- keep up the great work! (:
