Kanye in Concert

I surprised myself with how much I wanted to see Kanye’s Yeezus tour. Usually I just joke about him in between enjoying his songs.

I found that very, very funny.

Kanye’s most recent release Yeezus didn’t appeal to me as much as, say, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which I adore. But still, I emailed a few friends about buying tickets. They weren’t cheap–one of my sources had access to good seats for face value: $185. No takers. Continue reading

And how was YOUR weekend?

On Friday I had a fun night out with Adrienne who I first met through Candace in DC. We spent most of the night – and plenty of our dollars – at the Lobby Bar within Bowery Hotel.

While I was waiting for Adrienne to arrive, I got to meet Patrick Carney of the Black Keys ever so briefly. Later Leonardo DiCaprio made an appearance, but to be honest, I was way more excited about Pat.


Walter and Jose were working together as they were last time. Walter’s company Bowery Collective is hosting a whiskey event on Saturday, November 16 that I might have to check out. There’s a Manhattan station and BBQ from Hill Country after all! Details here.

After Bowery, we tried to go to bOb but it was over capacity so we went to its sister bar Lounge 247. We had heard that the music would be great – lots of 90s hip hop – and we weren’t disappointed. The bad twerking we witness provided comic relief.

What kind of trouble did you get into this weekend?

“Why didn’t I think of this?” The art edition.

How great-slash-awful are these prints from Arianna Orland’s Paper Jam Press?

Great because the song lyrics she puts on paper bring back memories galore.

Awful because someone else did it first (likely having fun and perhaps made some cash doing so).
