IT'S GOT THAT MEATY SMELL

so do you think he did this in the projects as a message about society and class? is he drawing attention to a dirty secret being hidden right in front of our eyes in this city? or is it just a coincidence that he could get roof access there?

and my roommate, The Goddamn Rattlesnake, has a slew of shows coming up. . . including the big event of Swoon's solo debut at Deitch Projects. not to be missed, i'll be posting more about it later. in the meantime read this email and see why i like living with this guy.

holy moly. so. we got shows. mighty fine shows. big shows. damn. this rattlesnake is gonna be a busy bitch. we decided after the last show that we were going to take off time to finish recording the greatest record you have ever heard (its coming. chill.) and then we got ask to play a bunch of rad shows with even radder bands. we caved. and fortunately enough for you, you are welcome to join in our sweaty, drunken, foot stompin, sometimes pretty, usually ugly, always righteous, never sorry, possibly forgiving, quite cozy, seriously heart breakin, highly educational, down right visceral, often spiritual, probably honest and most definitely sexy, country music explosion. we taped up the tambourine, restrung the guitars, cleaned up the banjo, dried the harmonicas, wet the whistles, polished the kazoo, cracked our knuckles, kicked back our chairs, cleared our throats and sipped our beers just in time to blow your mind.

canadian rappers are killing it for me. Buck 65 started it all off, and now i've come across Cadence Weapon. very different approaches, both infectious and refreshing. one more reason that when i finally have my breakdown and implode, i'm gonna be looking to the great white north like Ahab with his harpoon. there's gotta be a cheap room for rent somewhere in vancouver. . . and i can fix stuff too.

buy music, especially independent.

  1. access to the roof,
    do you think its proximity to the hipster dorms has anything to do with this roller peice?


    ...dont take too long to think about it.

  2. so apparently, Sweatshop Labor is actually a t-shirt company, also responsible for those "i (heart) sweatshop labor" stencils around nyc. they oppose sweatshop labor, which is why they are dropping American Apparel as a supplier.

  3. sounds like a dumb way to raise conciousness
    about SS labor, like, does anyone know they oppose these practices?
    no not too many, maybe they should get off the roof with the rollers and invest some time in writing a
    friggin business manifesto, and getting some ad space in Vice magazineor some other reputable rag-sarcasm-
