“We advocate artistic risk-taking with no prescribed starting point or budget while acknowledging that tedious periods of technical overhaul and demoralizing encounters with male authoritarianism have paved the path of our self-education.”—Le Tigre’s website under their FAQ-ish section about gear
Yesterday: Had Brunch with gay people I like, went on a yoga date, had sex to Al Green and The Stooges, drank coffee, learned Liz Phair and Lesley Gore songs, played a show as Ranch Control, drove around Boulder with Vee listening to R. Kelly and Bun B + Pimp C, smoked weed, head banged to Thee Goochis, watched a documentary on Shirley Temple, passed out.
so I saw Murder By Death the other day, never having seen them/ what they look like before, but having been told of the cellist's reputation for being a smokin hottie, and in the midst of drooling guys I just thought "wow, she looks a lot like bree..."
idk it probably helped she was wearing a turqoise kimono and yellow leggings and flower barrettes.
Also I'm glad your valentine arrived on time and I hope the day treated you right.
That was such a nice thing for you to say to me. A huge compliment to be compared to someone who doesn’t have glasses on and to know that someone might see what I actually look like! And yes, your Valentine was on time and so awesome. I WILL SO SEE YOU IN APRIL!!!!
I think kickstarter is great as something to fund projects that in some involve or benefit a community. Or is a social or interactive art piece. Paying to get a van fixed so some band can go to SXSW is not that interesting...
I totally agree—I was stoked on what Sterling is doing, and you’re right about benefitting a community being a perfectly good reason for a kickstarter. I got into a big debate about this with my editor because he believes then, people can have a stake/say in your music if they donate to your kickstarter. To me that sounds as dangerous, if not worse, than an actual record contract.
