writing to know, knowing thru being, being for writing... this is me, writing about the one thing i know, which is myself... and even that is sometimes a mystery...

forked in the face!

i went to pitchfork this past weekend... still recuperating.

it was a fest indeed, and i had the aural pleasure of seeing such stand-up acts as the walkmen, band of horses, mountain goats, ted leo, silver jews, JENS LEKMAN (whose set i missed except for the last two songs, but he ROCKED that shit out. it was fuckin awesome. JENS: i love you. marry me won't you?)

there were also stirring performances and debuts from yo la tengo and some crazy dance remixes from diplo and ada.

check out a video of yo la tengo's new song, "weakest part" here. and watch diplo mix it up with the bangles here.

sunburnt to hell and feeling tired

    I got your comment, thanks! Jens set was definitley one of my favorites of the day . Funny guy and great music.

    I'm currently going to ISU in bloomington IL. not far from chicago, i'm sure i'll be going to many more shows up there.

    I know matt just from blog networking. I met him for the first time at p-fest.
