Simply amazing. I was a little disappointed with their encore. I felt they should have played maybe an old standard or something else old if they were going to dedicate the main show to their most recent album. I hope I wasn't hallucinating too hard from the combination of booze and the overwhelming sonic distortion in the room because I could have swore I heard them perform "Armenia" live last night. I loved Blixa's little monologue about bringing electronics and gadgets into the country. I am now wishing I hadn't spent $6.00 on two PBRs (which I either gave away or lost) and bought the burn of that show that the were selling post-show.|
I dropped far more money than I should have the last two days. I broke my IKEA cherry today with the purchase of a shiny new lamp. It's name is Lista. And I visited MusicWerks and dropped more. The booty:
Haujobb - Eye Over You (cd single)
HMB - Great Industrial Love Affair (cd, 1st printing from Flatline)
Monolith - Tribal Globe (cd)
But this means -dun, dun, duuuun- I need to sell some stuff. It's my BIRTHDAY! I WANNA SPEND MY MONEY ON ME, DAMMIT! Stupid rent...*pouts* Which reminds me, I forgot to opt out on the Washington sales tax at the record store. D'oh!
Tuesday John gave me two Akira mini-vignette sets. One wound up being Kaneda and his bike and the other was the Colonel. He also gave me this little Japanese punk guy that looks like a cross between a Playmobile person and a Fisher Price Little People. He seems to be related to these Bearbrick things.
Hahaha...he has the choking Pac-Man warning on the back of the package. God bless the Japanese.
Oh, and the grouch also got me a graphic novel by Evan Dorkin, Milk and Cheese's creator. He got an early present from me, Nick Cave's new video collection on DVD. It came out on Tuesday. And, of course, it jumped out as something to get him. I'm so bad at giving presents because I get excited about giving one and wind up not being able to wait till the right time to give it. <snip>top secret comment made in lj</snip>
Ahhhhh! So much I could write about these last two days; things like all the various places I visited that I had never been to in my few visits to Seattle. Shorties, Singles Going Steady, The Showbox, the Nitelight, Pike Street Market, the EMP, the Space Needle... I saw the monorail this time. How could I have missed that the last four times I'd been there? As it is though, I have already wasted an hour just writing this. I need to be doing other things, like ripping mp3s for tomorrow's show.
BTW: Anti-copying stickers on cds make me NOT want to buy them. Sure, let's take away my ability to make mp3s and give free band promotion. Fuck you.

I went to a show last night that I was supposed to see The Punk Group at. We got there right after they had left the stage. Drat! Oh well, they're local so I'm sure I'll get another chance.
Speaking of another chance, I get to see Skinny Puppy June 11th. The only other time I had a chance to see them was around '92 when they were on their "Last Rights" tour. I was living in Green Bay, WI and they played Minneapolis, MN. My b/f at the time went to it without telling me that the it was happening. Of course I found out where he was that weekend. I still curse the name of Bob Maloney. Fucker.

Sooooo sleepy. I would have to do another 9 in the morning tomorrow at Music Millennium tomorrow but, as fate would have it, a co-worker had to switch shifts with me. I get to sleep in a little instead as I don't have to be to work until 1:30 pm. Yay! Sleeping in! I haven't been able to do that for a few days. Late nights, very little sleep with the weekend fast on it's way to repeat the whole process over again. I don't have to work Saturday for once, so we might be out checking out the North Portland MAX grand-opening festivities.
For the record, Spaten Optimator is still my favorite beer.

I wish I had some words of wisdom for this week, but I don’t so I’ll plug two upcoming shows instead. If you have been under a rock for the last few months, you might not know that Neubauten will be in Seattle May 5th at the Showbox. If you see me at that show, buy me a drink. I’ll have been 31 for all of 24 hours that day. :-D
Secondly, Gogol Bordello, my favorite Eastern European punks ( immi-core!), will be at Berbati’s Pan on May 10th . Crazy, cabaret, beer-soaked insanity. Very recommended.
I’ll be back this Friday with yet another show. I bet you can’t wait. ;-P
