My friend and I run a monthly show at the Hideout in Chicago. This is the kind of thing that happens there.

So good, man. So So good. Good enough to make me use tumblr again. I mean, the video is fine, but I’m talking about the song.

Oh gawdd yes new Tennis is EXACKTLY what I needed at this very moment.
Tennis doing a great cover of Guiding Light by Television. Gah, if only listening to Tennis didn’t make me feel kinda sad at this point.

Beautiful credits sequence for an imaginary film version of “The Sirens of Titan” by Kurt Vonnegut, apparently all done by capturing footage of lights reflected off car windows and manipulating that footage into the shapes of letters. I believe it’s supposed to be a visual representation of traveling through the chrono-synclastic infundibulum.
I would watch the hell out of this movie if it was made. Wonderful work.

Currently reading. About halfway through, and so far this is the LEAST SUITABLE cover design for a book I’ve ever seen.
Which I am considering a positive thing.
BTW, told jokes at Subterranean in Wicker park tonight before a 17+ music show started, which was fun in a “what little audience there is is talking by the bar, so you won’t be able to see them, and they’re not paying attention, and even if they did laugh, it would be so quiet compared to everything else in the room you would never hear it ever in a million years, so just tell your jokes expecting absolutely no discernible response in return” kinda way.
Then I spent all of my money on falafel sandwiches and coffee that didn’t make me feel better about myself, but were distracting enough I guess

This is good too. They’re playing in Chicago next week. Not sure if I’ll be there… but song metaphorically blows up the moon of my brain’s music lobe in any case

Haven’t posted on tumblr much lately. This is good. I haven’t stopped listening to music, I just have been keeping it a secret.

This is another good one. “Papa’s Roses” by… uh… “Jandruff,” which I’m guessing is one of those fake internet names people like so goddamn much these days

Hi tumblr, I’m up late, and I’ve been reading Geek Love and it’s pretty awesome, and a lot of cool internet people have done cool art for the internet based on the book. Here is some.
I enjoy this enough for it to be my first post in months.

So I did this recently Tumblr: I wrote out a standup set that was the same, word-for-word backwards and forwards. Sort of like a palindrome, but with words instead of letters. Then I performed this standup set in the basement of a bar in Chicago. And people seemed to dig it! My introduction got a bit cut off, but here is almost all of it, if you’re interested in listening. Thanks!

Love the crazy costumes old Plague Doctors wore back in the middle ages.
"some doctors wore a beak-like mask which was filled with aromatic items. The masks were designed to protect them from putrid air, which (according to the miasmatic theory of disease) was seen as the cause of infection”
