ray’s hellburgers are no joke… after much hullabalooh from friends & co-workers, we finally went for an inaugural taste-test sunday night. the fun thing about ray’s is the array of special cheeses and toppings you can pile on, like epoisse, foie gras, and applewood smoked bacon. i was quite torn between the muenster and imported… Read more »

mousybabe goes to the Caribbean \m/

Sven and I trekked to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic last week. We caught up on quite a bit of chill-axing, swimming, sweating in the sauna, eating and then some more chill-axing (actually I had to explain to him what ‘chill-ax’ means…sigh, europeans). But like most things in life, it was back to the… Read more »

Dead Bday Flowers :(

When I got home the other night, the desk clerk told me I’d had a package in the storage room for the last 2 weeks. It turned out they were flowers from our aunt. When I opened them, it was like opening a coffin and looking at the corpse. And out popped a balloon for… Read more »

Congratulations Brett

You’re officially a nerd. I thought Brett couldn’t top himself after getting 100% and 98% on his Geology exams. These pictures were taken at a Borders (fittingly) in New York a few weeks ago.

Everything That Happens…

Can’t wait for this. It’s their first collaboration in 30 years… I believe that’s a reference to “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” from 1981, which is famous for using “found” sounds and cross-pollinating everything from world music to dance to funk and sheer quirkiness. Some weirdass shit for sure. And that was in… Read more »

Pink Lozenges Gone to Heaven

Oh woe is me. I got up to go fetch my glass of water by the couch where I had taken a fitful nap. In the darkness I could make out a glass on the floor stuffed with what looked like a crumpled white napkin. That’s weird, since I didn’t throw anything away nor would… Read more »

ee cummings poem adapted by Jeff Ivins

We bust our asses to tour and play music mainly because we love it… “Everything else is just hot air,” to quote Karl Malone in one of his shoe commercials back in the day. (Em and I used to get such a kick out of that commercial). Still nothing beats a few of the kindest… Read more »
