Still Inkin’

I’m being punished for my weekend of procrastinating, but am taking a hand cramp break to share yet another Flight of the Conchords clip with you.


Flight of the Conchords – Foux Da Fa Fa

Either/Or

I can stay indoors this morning and put together something worth your time, or I can slap together this post and ride my bike (It’s fixed, kinda.) instead. I chose the bike. But I still love you. Just not as much as I love falling down and getting bitten by mosquitoes.

I thought I posted this video before, but a quick search says I didn’t. My brain is full of lies!


Polysics – I My Me MineGogol Bordello – Wonderlust King

I’m Lookin’ Ovah Heah!

I was procrastinating, as is my custom, and going through some of the home movies I digitized last year. I thought I’d share this clip from Christmas 1983, when I was four years old. The camcorder’s hooked up to the TV, which is what I’m looking at near the beginning of the video.

I can now say the word “helicopter” on the first attempt. Yay me!

UPDATE: Hey! I just remembered I have some more ephemera from 1983 on my computer.

Thanks Dan!

Last night in the midst of an all-nighter (Alt-weeklies have to go to press early because of next week’s holiday.) my friend Dan called me up. During our conversation, he insisted I check out Gogol Bordello, a band I’d heard of, but never actually listened to. Turns out I like them very much and their two albums gave me enough rocket sauce to power through the mind-numbing process of correcting all my squiggles in Photoshop well past my bedtime.

And from their new album Super Taranta!

Hopefully they’ll swing by the sleepy backwater of Bostontowne sometime soon.
