Insanity Straight- No Chaser

I've been listening to my old ipod- the one that doesn't stay charged for longer than 30 minutes but plays fine while plugged in a Bose speaker which keeps it on constant charged (don't we all have a friend that could be dubbed "constant charged?") so it's been hood (hence the video on previous post) Beach Boys, and The Warlocks non-stop (has anyone heard the latest Warlocks lp? I haven't).


Today will be a cold-ass-uninspiring-day to check out the cherry blossom festival. No surprise there, right?


Even though Anne Carson has been holding it down at NYU for more than a minute now + has done various readings in nyc/bk poetry peeps are still gonna FREAK on Monday's reading + it's with Grahm Foust- that's straight heavy- hitting. Get there early is my only advice my only advice is to get there early early my advice to get getting early there early there get to getting advice only is early
