There's another kushal dave on facebook. Scary.

In other news, Notebook was in the Times.

And C. and I went to a wedding in Chattanooga, but the pictures are of Rock City and Georgia's higest point (Brasstown Bald).


Stadium Arcadium is $11.88 at Amazon, which has to ship a CD from a warehouse to me, and $19.90 at Itunes, which has to send me a few bits over a wire. If I buy from Itunes, nobody on the work network can listen to my cool new album. Why don't people buy music legally? Because the music industry is run by greedy idiots. Fuck 'em both, I'm buying it from the Russians for $3.45. Sigh. (I've also found the Russians are a guilt-free place to retrieve albums I've had stolen, and they have a snazzy new Windows client.)

Radiohead rocks

The Radiohead concert at MSG was incredible. It was actually a much smaller venue than I expected, and we had a great view despite the swaying tall guy, two Blackberry-entranced businessmen, and aggresive pot smokers in front of us. Even the Radiohead songs I like less were great in concert. Much more of an edge. I feel like the same was true when I saw REM in concert. Why aren't there more live albums? Sigh.

In other news, I made a little notebook of my favorite New York restaurants, since so many people keep asking. I'll fill it out with some second tier places when I get more energy.

They're filming Spiderman 3 a block from our house. Later, there were people with pointy helmets! Lots of cabs parked on that street, lots of trailers on the surrounding streets. This is way more impressive than when Conviction was filming around here.

Concert ticket dilemma

I bought Radiohead tickets for June 13th as part of making up my long absence to Catherine (at 2x face value!) and then I found out that the Eels are playing for free that night. :-( But it looks like Craiglist has a semi-vibrant ticket forum, so maybe I'll be able to pull off a trade. One cool thing, though, in Google Calendar, you can search for the New York Free Concerts feed, which includes all the River to River shows.
