Wednesday, July 31, 2002 :::

someone in london has been having fun with the subway maps. spotted on mooselessness, where there is also a link to some one-star amazon reviews of great novels. My least favorite book of all time is pride and prejudice, and I can still recall those painfully boring days of assigned reading, desperately forcing myself to finish each page of austen's writing in time for class. of course, that was ten years ago, and perhaps I may give it another try someday. someday.

Sunday, July 28, 2002 :::

so here's some late posting that I discovered lying around on some concealed deskstop notes on my computer. There have been a spate of articles concerning janet reno's dance party - pre, post and another in this week's blade.

Oh, and since this keeps on showing up in my referrer logs - if it's pictures of stephane rideau you want, I recommend google image search. Just keep in mind that not everything that pops up may be safe for work, although at last check things weren't too steamy.

oh, and I never did post to swedish in 1000 difficult lessons - american expat and his husband in stockholm. But I meant to.

today's lesson is that if you take a sunday afternoon nap, you will wake up too late to go to all the stores that are now closed because they all close too damn early. Also that making chili requires more time and energy than I thought. Also, that if you are having a sunday nap, you may be awakened by the unannounced and sudden and loud arrival of your landlord who has suddenly decided to catch up on two years' worth of building repairs and is here to announce to you that the apartment is going to be repainted next weekend and you may want to spend the night somewhere else unless you like dying of paint fumes. I was also napping in my boxers, so there was some hasty getting dressed interspersed with all this painting discussion.

But I did have a good time shopping for new drinking glasses and looking at the trendy 14th street boutiques. Gentrification does have its advantages, I guess.

They were also out of the royal tenenbaums at the video store and I was very disappointed as that was what I really wanted to watch this evening.

Ach, no posts for a while. Had a good deal of fun last week - I went to go see Neil Finn at the 930 club and it was a good concert all in all. It turns out that the opening act was one Ed Harcourt (earlier concert review from NYC) and he was a pleasant surprise, as the songs were consistently good - he is sort of a straight and british rufus wainwright, what with the sexy swagger and wavy black hair. The crowd, however, was waiting for Neil Finn - half of them, I would say, were there to hear all the old songs of their teenage days. They were not disappointed - there was plenty of split enz, and don't dream it's over and all that. I myself had bought the new album the other day and really really liked it and was glad to hear all the new songs. There were also a goodly number of songs off the last crowded house album, which I have to say is an excellent one.

So I just got my new yorker and there is a very good article about hiring people just because they are "talented" and is the usual amazing work of mr. gladwell.

very useful link: how to search google by date, or perhaps more accurately, how to search google and only retrieve documents that have been recently cached. I forget where I saw this, but whoever spotted it receives my thanks.

I should have realized that the lemony snicket website would have gashlycrumb-tinies-esque postcards.

Had quite a weekend, as I went up to New York. Left friday, got together with my old college roommate, and gossiped about everyone. Then on saturday me and my sister went to the tenement museum and got together with mike benedetto and got to see the much-heard-of duplex. Then I went to go see All About Lily Chou-Chou, which had been billed as japanese teenagers obsessed with a female pop star. Sounded light and frothy and entertaining in the review, but the movie turned out to be a searing introduction to hazing in japanese junior high schools and was truly horrifying, but an excellent film with stunningly beautiful cinematography. Still hard to watch, though.

Just discovered the link paradise that is sharpeworld, where I learned that carol channing was on nixon's enemies list. Ms. Sharpe has just added some more real estate agent pics to her collection, including one who is trying to make the job seem a little more exciting. this is all courtesy jockohomo.
