Small Big Apple Update

Hello all....hope you all miss me dreadfully!

I am actually using my work computer to look for apartments (still crashing at my boss's pad!) right now and have to run out, so I really don't have time to do any real pop-eyeing. I just wanted to let all my cyberpals out there know that I'm doing ok and still trying to find permanent digs in the city, hence my continued blogging absence.

Here's one item: I met my first "celebrity" last night. I was at a bar following my friend, Chris's new show with the Knockout Drops (which was great, by the way) and happened to be sitting near Gordon Gano, lead singer of the Violent Femmes. He knows Chris and some of the other guys I know there, so I guess that's a regular hangout of his. I introduced myself and said hello, we exchanged about 5 sentences each and that was about it.

And I'd swear I saw that one guy who's always on VH1's Best Week Ever walking down the street the other day. I can't even remember his name. I'm still looking for Chris Parnell.

Anyway, I'm running back "home" to take a shower so I can catch the Vic Thrill show this evening, so I gotta bolt. Thanks for not forgetting me!

YES! She's back! Totally missed you. I can't believe you are in the Big Apple! I'm impressed and happy for you and your new job!!! Keep us POSTED.

Gordon Gano...that's cool! New York's a long way from Minnesota! :D

Who forgot you?? Could we possibly? Never!

Make sure you line me up some wannabe celebs who don't mind working for no pay (promised credit and possible percentage of profit only) with a nonedescript (so far) production company in Butt-Bleep Northern Ontario, Canada (Honest. Canada is a REAL place.). I can't believe that all the fabulous talent in my own town can't be bothered to ante up their music - so I'm settling for Big Apple talent. Smooth move, no?

Glad you posted... Missed you.

Gotta love the Violent Femmes. Gordon is hella talented and I'm still upset that they aren't recording more often. I'm jealous. Hope you are having a great time and a whirlwind adventure.

Welcome back and thanks for getting even with me by mentioning the Violent Femmes. "Gross Pointe Blank" has permanently etched "Blister in The Sun" into my head and the mere mention of the group or the song...well Beck, "he's the world's biggest" what?


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
