"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

@rachel we went to a baseball game, but it was rained out. something was going on across the parking lot, which we assumed was an nba (sixers) playoff game, so we asked a scalper how much and they were super cheap, and then the scalper left and we looked at the tix and they were deep purple tickets, nosebleed seats. smoke on the water baby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/26/18 10:11am PKNY:

I saw about 30 minutes of Deep Purple's set in early Sept, they actually played *after* Judas Priest. Steve Morse on guitar, was a solid band, but I wanted to go home and go to sleep. They did play "Bloodsucker" on the deep track tip, but I left waaaaaay before "Smoke on the Water" was played.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/26/18 11:44am JakeGhould:

@WildNeil: The modern post service relies on bar codes more than anything. Cancelling stamps doesn’t really happen any more. If you just put stamps on a package, then at some point in the process it gets a barcode at a USPS facility. And modern stamps are basically stickers that are not easy to remove and can clearly be damaged when removed. Thus sometimes the only “cancelling” you will see for stamps is a ballpoint pen scribble someone made at some point if even that much.

I do NOT want to pay $50 to be in a 4-hour party in a room full of drunk people in shitty costumes listening to too-loud music. A friend of mine who has been doing regular H'ween parties forever is out of town this weekend; I just lost my temp gig so I don't want to spend too much; ALL of the events out here are a) ticketed b) run too late and c) always oversell because lately anything in NYC that isn't over $100/ticket or total crap oversells.

At the end of the day, my Halloweekend was saved by a surprise invitation from...The Cheesemonger's Invitational. Their main judging event with all-you-can-eat cheese is usually in the summer (and oversold and overcrowded, whoda guessed) but I go anyway because of cheese. Anyway, got an invite; the qualifiers for the Summer event are Saturday, only 150 tickets, and I got a ticket for half off. So...while other people are doing tequilla shots in a room full of strangers and barfing on their crappy costumes, I will be gorging myself with cheese, local wine and beer, and charcuterie in a cold-storage facility in the hinterlands of Long Island City. I may or may not put my easy "devil horns" costume on....
