playing with the fiery furnaces was great last night. they completley change their songs' arrangements live and the whole thing had a latin-james-brown review show type atmosphere. They were also really interesting and friendly people. They have Jason Lowenstein from Sebadoh (Kristin was totally geeking the fuck out). Matt Friedberger and I got the opportunity to discuss telefunken microphones, shurman filterbanks, and eventide harmonizers, and debate tony visconti's value as a producer. I think he's a genius. Matt Friedberger "They just paid him to sit around and do cocaine." Matt Friedberger = comic genius.
Tonight was bowling night. Lockett Slayed me in three games although I picked up pretty well during the second. He constantly upstages me with his college-learned "spin technique". I will slay him at poker tomorrow, though.
Last night was also Colin's Birthday. Thanks to Zopi for throwing him a rad party including a "Dusseldorf" dance session, which I kept mistaking for neu! 2.
