Peephole in my brain

May 17, 2004

An interesting enough week-end, I suppose. While growing ever more inured to the actions of denizens of the internet’s dankest and most luxurious corners, I met a minor celebrity and realized why he’s universally reviled. Also, I got a bunch of kids drunk after showing off my Manhattan skillz.

Then I learned that, if given a choice between escorting people through a sudden drenching downpour or ducking into a local music store open until all hours of the night, I’d much rather buy a copy of Franz Ferdinand’s Franz Ferdinand than interact with other human beings. I can’t say I’m surprised by that turn of events.

Today, as luck had it, the Pistons played the Nets. I happened to be at the Meadowlands to see the whole thing, since I made the decision last week to go on eBay while drunk. I’m thankful for the fact that I really didn’t spend all that much money on the tickets I bought, especially considering that I got them for less than face value. Also, they were nosebleed seats but positioned such that we got a beautiful view of the court. All in all, the tickets were not worth complaining about in the least. The gameplay, of course, left something to be desired. I wouldn’t say the Pistons won so much as the Nets lost. Of the game’s 48 minutes, New Jersey was actually playing for maybe 10. The rest of the time, they were taking the most ill-advised shots I’ve ever seen, letting Detroit get all the rebounds they wanted, and generally playing some very sloppy basketball. If the Pistons hadn’t been playing almost as poorly, they would have won by 30 instead of nearly letting the game go to overtime. I really fucking hope Larry Brown chewed them out for coming so close to losing the series for no good reason. Of course, I also hope that the Nets manage to win game 7, but whatever.

Also, David Bowie’s “Andy Warhol” is borne a striking resemblance to by Metallica’s “Master of Puppets”. Proof is here. Both are very good songs. Go and listen to both of them. And then listen to The Unicorns for a bit.

Tonight I get to drink all the free Guinness I can stomach. Excellent.

  • I found a place for Liina near her new workplace that has $2 Guinness and free hot wings during all Sox games. Isn’t she lucky to have a sister like me?

    Also, the Femmes, the Rapture, and about 1,000,000,000,000 bands I’ve never heard of are all playing at some place near her current apartment the day before her birthday. Just thought you’d like to know.
