JAY, J, etc.

Farrar’s new album is sticking to my ribs. Good stuff. It’s been on
H-E-A-V-Y rotation the last couple days.

Not to rub it in, but maybe just a little: I “pre-ordered” my copy of “Terroir Blues” from Miles of Music and got an autographed poster with it. There’s something about it. Just a couple nicks of a Sharpie™ from the man. So cool. I don’t know, autographs usually don’t get me, but this time–the fact that this object has a little bit of Jay on it–I find it pretty amazing.

Speaking off another J. Tonight we’re going to the Blackbird up on Sandy Blvd for Cobra Verde featuring J Mascis. Yep. Good living. The man.

A wise man once said, “Never pass up an opportunity to see Mascis.”

There Are 7 Comments

But, dude — Cobra Verde blows like nobody’s business. Remember when we were ready to chuck our emptied ‘Belt bottles at ‘em?

I wish I had a good ‘dis for them, like I did for freakin’ dirtbag Pirner at his stupid little “side-band” show. What the hell were they called? The O’Jeez or something?

Fuckin’ loser.

God bless Farrar and Mascis, tho.

Looking at the “recent works”…can you elaborate on teh DDC Field Notes? Was this just a journal, notebook you made or is this some publish words of Drapliness?

Peace and Harmony,

File under: “Journal graphics.”

It’s my “little black book” of sorts, where I keep my bills/obligations/everything else square. Once a week I make a grocery list of everything I owe, everything coming to me…be it a bill, a freelance job, a refund check, what-evs. Then, as I slay the items, I scratch ‘em off the list. Easy, sleazy.

Keeps me in line.

Draplin, dude?
Do I have to be hairy and Greek to get a response from you when I post? What’s the deal?

I know you’re kind of a “bear” man, but we’ve been dudes for a while here, you could at least give me the satisfaction of a rebuttal.

Piece of Harmony,

Me and you, we’ve been through our fair share of of hairy times. My silence in no way personifies any semblence of distaste towards you and yer estate.

Simple reason: Very busy right now. Freelance, work, Girlfren, etc.

I’m planning up a week in Minneapolis this fall.

We’re gonna paint, we’re gonna tour, we’re gonna scour junk stores, we’re gonna fight, we’re gonna go north, then south, we’re gonna spit in the Mississippi, we’re gonna catch a Twins game, we’re gonna chow at the Ideal, we’re gonna beat Kurt into a man, we’re gonna hold doors open for V, we’re gonna contort with the Foats, we’re gonna clink Grainbelts in little Polish bars, we’re gonna swear along to rap tunes, we’re gonna get our clean up and go out on the town, we’re gonna work on our accents, we’re gonna do a Mystie by Mystie breakdown of yer estate, we’re gonna marvel at how much treasure you own, we’re…

We’re gonna do this and much more. Goddamn straight. Been thinking about it a bunch.

normally I’d balk at superficial door opening ploys, but you aaron are one of the few real men that i know. tell me when you’re heading out and I’ll make some equally domestic gift upon arrival to welcome you home.

fresh, midwestern home cooked meal and a couple of brews anyone?
