a week of blogging in one entry. woo!

This week has been kind of boring, but the weeks leading up to it were anything but. I gotta say though, I'm happy that february is OVER. it is one yucky month. and now the sun is shining and the birds are defrosting and all is well. yada yada yada.

last night my friend Jason took me to go see Rob Dickinson who was in the Catherine Wheel. Rob was pretty awesome, and has a great voice and a lot of groupies. He played this one song that was totally amazing called "Delicious" and I can't find an mp3 of it anywhere. Someone SEND IT TO ME.

in the meantime, listen to this other Catherine Wheel song, which I am also enjoying.

Catherine Wheel - Crank

After the show, I drunkenly played some skeeball in Greenpoint. Skeeball = best. G train = WORST.

Tonight I am SUPER excited, because I finally get to see Mason Proper, a band that I really love and have been dying to catch live. They are playing at the soon-to-be-defunct sin-e. They play at 8pm, with A Brief Smile and Project Jenny, Project Jan.
