listing off a lovely weekend

photos of adam/gretchen's party on friday night can be found by clicking on dave perezident's mug above.

a list of things i did this weekend (in semi-chronological order):

i sold a couple of things on cl.

i went to adam's party.

in the torrential rain coming back from said party, my car was rear ended, the truck sped off, paul gave chase, the car ran stop signs and quickly got away. my bumper is actually kind of fucked and the sides have belted out. sigh.

i watched some more of 'six feet under', season 1.

danelle and i bought a strawberry torte cake from dinkel's and then went to trader joe's.

dan and nadia came over to eat said torte and we continued to watch 'six feet under' episodes whilst crafting.

re: crafting...danelle and i both worked/brainstormed on our submissions for the october sampler.

danelle and i did our promo for dcfc's sleep well, drive carefully and realized that THREE RECORD STORES HAVE CLOSED (hi fi records by metro, evil clown and the record exchange <-- i think that closed ages ago, but i just never remembered to look for it).

i got my sewing machine fixed.

danelle showed me how to use it.


i watched the end of season one last night immediately before the series finale last night. i kept debating whether or not i was going to do it and now i regret that i watched it. oh well. nothing i can do now.

afterwards, brendan left and dan and i went to see 'the 40 years old virgin' with dan. it is quite possibly the funniest movie i have ever seen.

i woke up early today and accomplished quite a few things!

janice tagged me / trembling blue stars = no more live dates

Name six songs that you are currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions. Then list the six artists and the songs in your LiveJournal. Last but not least, tag six other people to see what they're listening to.

1) death cab for cutie - someday you will be loved
have you ever felt like a song was written for you by an ex? when listening to this song it just feels like jer could have written it.

2) kind of like spitting - free advice
i haven't actually listened to this song in ages, but it's been in my head for about a week now.

3) orange juice - moscow & moscow olympics
man, i still can't believe the comp. domino put out did not house 'rip it up', but these two songs make my day.

4) alcian blue - fall behind
since jake gave me the 'fall behind ep', i've been listening to this. the title track is quite good, but i've yet to watch the video.

5) the poison control center - kennedy
danelle has let me borrow 'kennedy' and i hadn't listened to it until yesterday in the car with her. DAMN, this song is CATCHY as all get out. they totally remind me of masters of the hemisphere.

6) trembling blue stars - do people ever?
this popped into my head after reading the following:

"Hi Everyone,
Just to let you know these dates have been booked for the last live TBS shows!! We hate it, you hate it, so we're packing it in. (Live anyway).

I think most of the gigs will be with The Sharp Things (

Saturday, September 24th: Maxwell's, Hoboken, NJ
Tuesday, September 27th: Mill Creek Tavern, Philadelphia, PA
Wednesday, September 28th, DC9, Washington, DC
Thursday, September 29th, Magnetic Field, Brooklyn, NY
Friday, September 30th: Rothko, NYC, NY
Saturday, October 1st: Popfest, Northampton, MA

I can't believe our last gig ever will be a Popfest. Poetic justice?

Take care,
Beth (Trembling Blue Stars)

NO CHICAGO DATE!? w the f!? looks like i'll be heading out east yet again. popfest might actually be doable and then i could hang with the specific heats, shumai,and colin clary. anyone want to go? that and the maxwell's gig are the only two that are truly possible.
