This Girl That I Know

Download the MP3

The most enjoyable song on Beck's new album is only on the UK import. Check it out!

Meanwhile, someone ripped all 15 of the album's DVD videos and put them on YouTube. Click this link to grab them. They get repetitive, so pick "1000BPM" for the rapping bear and leather dude alone. (Hint: click that link using Firefox to download the new Shins album. It'll change your life.)

Finally, I've looked for clips of this episode of 120 Minutes for years:



. . . and a musical performance!

We're All Gonna Die


Over the past two days we've had no internet connection and one of the most devastating storms in Western New York History. This guy lives uptown, but let's check out my house. . . .

Front yard, tree #2





The tree behind the house is now partially on top of it.

Our neighborhood. I took this from our driveway.

CONTACT

Based on StatCounter data, on October 9th someone searched Google for "how to get to Earth." They arrived at this page. Aliens have accessed my blog!

Dude



Cookie Monster, man! Take your meds!

Too Loud to Hear


Mark "Madd Dogg" Miller is perhaps the greatest personality in all of Western New York. I've decided to film a documentary of him a la Wesley Willis. Here's some footage of him working outside of the Melvins/Big Business performance at Showplace Theater:



And here is the man in action, fronting his band Boss Tribal at the Aaron "Nikki Christmas" Beebe Tribute show at the Akron VFW:



Some artwork found inside Showplace Theater:

Work Weak

Battle of the Album Covers

Sunday Night, 9 PM: Drive to job #3. Work until 2:30 AM. Drive home to take shower and arrive at job #1 by 4 AM. Only work until 7 AM because I have to be at job #2 by 8 AM. Work there until 10 AM and take the 45-minute drive to job #1 by 11 AM. Work there until 5 PM, then drive straight back to job #3. Stay there until 9 PM. Drive back home.

Tuesday Morning, 3 AM: Get up at 3 AM to arrive at job #1 by 4 AM. Stay until 2 PM, then drive to job #2 where I'll stay until 5 PM. Make the 90-minute drive to job #3 by 7 PM. Work until 9:30 PM and drive home.

Wednesday Morning: Well you get where this is heading. Most of the week is a blur but I did about 65 hours of work in four days. By Friday I had worked so much they made me go home after only three hours. So tired . . .

Fried Fish and Sushi


Yesterday I attended a luncheon for Buffalo Tours volunteers, held at Gene McCarthy's Pub on Hamburg Street. I'm in this group deep. Also: free fish!

I escaped for a while to check out the Old First Ward. This is the bar from outside. The train tracks are still active.

These buildings were only supposed to last for 60 years or so. Note how immigrant families expanded by adding additions to the back because of the thin plots of land.



Here are some other pictures from my ten minute walk:















If you're interested in any of these items, or the house which is also for sale, call 830-5132. I got dibs on the "Small Child Scotter."



Today was also my sister's birthday. You know what that means . . . CHINESE BUFFET!
