new CHICAGO show:
wednesday at the bottom lounge

Friday, November 26, 2004

Went to a towny bar last night with the family. The DJ put on "Ironman" and my mom said, "You have to be high to listen to this music."

have you guys listened to the futureheads? i think you'll like them. they sound like franz ferdinand, but the time signatures are way more frantic. the song writing seems way better. you can go http://www.thefutureheads.com, but be careful cause they blast the volume on the homepage.
we actually met our downstairs neighbors last night, and contrary to the stench in the hallway, they don't fucking reek. who knew?

Drinking gas make Sam strong! Raaaaaaaaaaarrrrrr! Craig marry Sam! Now Sam Craig-Wife number one! Raaaaaaaaarrrrrrrr!
2nd interview went very well, but I'm still waiting for them to call me. I'm so nervous, it makes want to go drink some ga-...um...gatorade. And pay no attention to Steve. The man is not a credible source. Behind all the accusations and fingerpointing, Steve is actually a scared little girl...named Valerie.
Thanks for the info Steve. His mother and I will have to keep an eye on him and drill him for information when he comes home. By the way Craig how did your 2nd interview go?
Butch what's up man I haven't posted in a while but I just wanted to let you know that Craig has fallen in with "the wrong crowd" here in Chicago. I don't want to say exactly what he's been up to but let's just say that he's been drinking a lot of gasoline and attempting to run for public office. Last I heard, he became a notary and was convincing drunk people leaving the 4am bars in Wicker Park that they should get married. Really I just don't think the self-appointed nickname "Credulous Craig" is very accurate anymore, he's become an octane-consuming halfling. Sup

As interesting as it was to open up the blog and see almost two weeks worth of Melissa's and Craig's witty banter, I have a question. Is anyone going to or coming to Madison for the Pedro the Lion show?

god! who told sam we were coming? thanks a lot guys.
after much arguing, sam and I have finally become friends again. We have also decided that when we're rich we will make commercials that sell nothing for the hell of it. Our first commercial features Sam swimming in a pool. The jingle goes like this:

Sam's swimming pool is always full...of sam...of sam.

Hmmm I haven't heard from steve and melissa for awhile. I wonder if they're coming to town anytime soon? I don't know, I guess I don't really care. I don't really care at all....DOCTOR!

Me and nate have a man date on wednesday though. It's a mandate for a mandate. I should put that in my schtick. I'll just schtick it in my schtick. I'll put that in there too.

I wish craig would stop posting so much, it makes our band look lame. This blog bores me to death with him hogging up all our bandwidth. In other words he's not going to get the job.

Because he's boring.
um. here are a couple of reminders:

1. Steven and I are coming to Chicago tomorrow night. We should get there about 11:30. Get ready. Yeah tuesday.

2. Next Sunday is the 2nd annual thanksgiving potluck at our house - 133 n franklin #2. And I promise I won't sleep through the whole thing. About 7:00ish. Bring some food or wine or just yourself.

3. There is a very angular fire hydrant on the corner of wisconsin and gorham.
is cnn trying to tell us something with their headlines?:

Adviser: Cheney has cold; heart is fine
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, melissa. I think this blog is slowly becoming my own. Everyone else, like the greedy bastards they are, crave ultimate power and have selfishly broken off to rule their own blogland. But I'm not bitter, this allows much rambling from myself, as in this blog entry.

craig blogs too much. lets kick him out.

Friday, November 12, 2004

Just finished watching the long version of Lord of the Rings, the fellowship. You learn in the deleted scenes that Frodo was dead all along, and Legolas and Arwen (Liv Tyler) are the same person. Adds some new depth to the Arwen/Aragorn love scenes. Also, apparently, Gandolf is a figment of Gimli's imagination.

yeah, I've had my car towed in madison once, too. I think that's what they usually do, bring the car somewhere nearby. Not chicago though, damnit.

There's some dudes working on our garbage disposal in the kitchen right now. I asked how it was going. "There's a fucking quarter in here," he replied.

whoa, my car was towed too. on monday. the weird thing was, they just towed it a block away into a legal parking spot and left me a $90 ticket. i've never heard of such a thing. towing a car 1 block.
Thanks for the info, d.
Heavenly states were awesome tonight. But...

someone spiked the michelob!

Butch and Craig, FYI: "Drink Gas" in Catalan is "BEU BENZINA."
when your neighbors are yelling drunk at 2 am on a sunday, is it really necessary to call the police? i didn't think so, goddamnit.

"hey everybody, we're

'CRAG BENZ and the JOBS'

and this song's called

'CRAG B'

"
my car was towed simply because it was parked illegally next to the club while we were playing. Cost me tons of money and made be darn near broke. But I had a good job interview today for a well paying job. We'll see what happens.
Hello Craig why was your car towed?
show tonight was pretty good.....CAR WAS TOWED! I'M PISSED AT THE WORLD!!!!!!!

yes, what sucked about the show was the guy who booked it said another band would be playing. We get there and there's no other band, and the guy never showed up, never returned our call, and hasn't contacted us since. We played for about seven people, give or take. The rest of nashville was fun, however. Too bad we didn't wake up at six the next morning to go watch Shania Twain at the nashville block party.
Schimpeys! Nashville has no idea.

Show sucked, but greece/nashville is hilarous.
guys, b-side's pete wanted me to tell you they're fresh out of janels. he thought that maybe you wouldn't care since you've moved up and out, but i said i'd leave that up to you. then i ran into a rack of magazines.

hey, guys. It's election day morning and I ran down the stairs in my feeted pajamas and guess what I found under the election tree. Rodimus Prime! But I asked for OPTIMUS Prime.


"The newest leader of the Autobots, Rodimus Prime is very different from the other leaders. Even though The Matrix caused a change, Rodimus Prime is still a reckless being. Many times he will rush into battle and ask questions later. He enjoys what he has, but in several times, he chose to give up the matrix to return to Hot Rod. Rodimus Prime turns into a Hot Rod with a trailer. In Robot mode, he is armed with a particle beam cannon and his trailer turns into a battle platform."
