Petition to get Blur to schedule a proper tour of the U.S.
Because petitions always solve everything.
The poster was cool, but they didn't have any tubes and it was pouring out last night. I was happy to see Arens will be selling it on his website.
Phenomenal show in an exceedingly warm room.
Spooks was correct - Tonight's show is at Brooklyn Masonic Temple, which I can either walk to or if the rain continues can paddle to in a kayak.
2. It'll never happen.
3. Nipped this one in the bud a couple times since. They're alright.
4. It'll never happen.
5. Thanks to Coachella for helping fulfill this one for me....
Ah, I didn't realize that's where it was. Well, I'll take it! I can walk there from my apartment!
I picked up the new record today and got on the guest list for a small show somewhere here in NYC on Friday. Seriously stoked about it.
I was coming in here to list a couple records I picked up today, but after looking at Greg's haul I feel woefully inadequate.
Yes, I'm seeing it with mountmccabe and our two lovely ladies. Very much looking forward to it.

Damon Albarn on the Future of Blur, His First Ever Solo Album and Why He Doesn't Hate Oasis Anymore
Someone's finally posted a clip of Damon talking about recording. A "record" could simply be a single, but I'll take whatever I can get.
A guy I went to high school with who I barely remember sent a friend request a couple of months ago. The only time I ever see any activity from him is in my scrolling news ticker, and it's always...
They're all dumb, but can I vote for this one?
I saw Jason Bateman and Will Arnett as they were being led off after serving some lucky so-and-so's. Had I arrived five minutes earlier, I'd have been at that point of the line. Alas...
"There's always simulated fellatio in the banana stand."
And just like that, Aston Villa can head into Wigan on Sunday with relegation completely off the cards.
Endeavour still hasn't found the humor that was at the heart of the Inspector Morse character, but this first series has been pretty rewarding all the same.
This Twins-Red Sox game is ridiculous: Bottom of the 2nd, Twins up 11-6.
So looking forward to this. After Son Lux' incredible live score for Like Lazarus Did last week I'm always up for a bit of indie-style culture.
This lovely clear blue vinyl reissue of the Beachwood Sparks' debut arrived on my doorstep an hour ago.
Damon Albarn supposedly confirmed on stage in Hong Kong last night that Blur are recording another album, and that they're spending an off week in the city working on it. I haven't actually heard a...
Is there anything Frankie Muniz can't do?
Everyone in this story sucks.
Bought the 2-LP reissue of Iggy & the Stooges' Raw Power (Bowie's 1973 mix and Iggy's 1997 remaster) in anticipation of the NPR show this afternoon. No luck on getting it signed, but any excuse to...
Hope they archive it soon. Show was amazing, and I bet I can spot myself in the crowd.
Iggy & the Stooges - NPR session late this afternoon at Le Poisson Rouge.
Louis CK and John Starks enjoying JR Smith's shenanigans.
Hope it was a gas, Salah!
Drinking my namesake as well. Nicely done, sir.
Kii Arens just posted on Facebook that he's got a few more of these for sale on his website.
A friend's record shop has a few extras left over, so I'll be stopping by there in a day or two. Happy to be able to pick up Pulp and Orange Juice without resorting to eBay. And I'm excited that the...
This was my fourth Coachella (2008, 2009, 2011, 2013 w1), and the first I didn't cover as a journalist. It was also my favorite Coachella, partly because I wasn't beholden to any media outlets,...
I've been to four and this was the best.
I was having a tough time falling asleep last night, so I imagined I was back in the Mojave last Saturday for New Order's set. Put me right out.
Wear it on your dick. You and security will share a good laugh about it.
New Order was monumentally dull.
One of my best friends in high school had really bad eczema.
I considered saying something obnoxious, but he was so keyed up I thought he might go nuts on our rental car.
Truth. Giovanni Ribisi waved his cigar around and yelled about medical emergencies in a futile effort to be allowed to breach the mandatory gate closure in a backstage parking lot. He went back for a...
The Wythe in the background and Manhattan across the East River. You're in my old neighborhood.
