NYC Weekend
Leave it to NYC to make you feel fat, useless and unhip. It is intimidating to be there and have so little direction as I do. Trumping around with little photocopied zines is a bit like walking into a four star restaurant with tomato sauce all over your face. I guess anyway, I have never walked into a four star restaurant.
I got zero sleep going in on the Jet Blue overnight, but all in all, a really good trip as I got to see two of my best friends. I also saw the Whitney Bi-annual and went to the Guggenheim to see the Cai Guo-Quang exhibit. Did I like that exhibit, or do I just really like to see shit blowing up? I can’t tell, but I had a good time. My favorite part is at the end of the climb to the top, there is a white, late model Chevrolet sitting there. As if I had to climb the Guggenheim to see that. But I am not being negative, it was awesome.

More awesome was that I happened to be in town for the Daniel Higgs/Asa Osbourne exhibit. The art was awesome and free. I am glad to see these guys getting into the upper ranks. Before long, I might even be able to think of them as sell outs.
That night we attended a nice wedding of a family member of Amy’s. The next day I shopped at Academy Annex in Brooklyn. This is the best and most reasonable record shopping in NYC. Loads of moderately priced new, re-ish and used. Most importantly, they are not so snobby as to turn down a consignment from me, so that makes them AOK. The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie was on the plane on the way home rounding out the weekend.

Anyway, I don’t know why I am going on about my trip. It’s like I said. NYC makes you feel small, so I am reaching out. Still, it feels better that being in L.A.
