The Baseball Suite

The April 2008 - August 2009 baseball suite schedule doesn't look like much until you see how much money was spent on food and liquor.
The Springdale Chamber of Commerce and others in top tiered tax brackets spent $175,000 for the luxury baseball suite at Arvest Ballpark in order to keep them safe from the elements and the common folk when watching their home team play.

Evelyn's Birthday at Ten-Eleven Bar

Tonite Evelyn, who is part owner of the TenEleven Bar on Avenue C had a kinda birthday shindig at her was fun-lots of good people there..The first few pics are of some of the pretty freakin' cool artwork they have hung up in there..It oozed of creepiness and insanity..I liked it-unless the Voyeur Van Guy is the artist..OH FUCK IT! I ADMIT IT! I LOVE FETISH SERIAL KILLER VAN GUY! I WANT TO SPOON WITH HIM ALL NIGHT AND WATCH THE LIFETIME NETWORK FOR WOMEN! Well, as long as the show is about a woman getting beaten, arrested, thrown down a flight of stairs, and/or having amnesia.

Then..let's see..a pic of ME ME ME! then a pic of Evelyn the birthday gal, some cakes my beautiful friend Alexa made for her, Alexa and her friend, Alexa and I, the awesome Rustle and I,...a band that played at some point, the doggie Tito..and my friend Popeye with Daniela and with me..

Not one serial killer showed up, but it was a nice, mellow night..That bar is so large-it has two big rooms..I'm so used to Mars Bar and people knocking into me all night..

Never drinking again..until the next time I get drunk.

Well, another Friday night at Mars completely trashed and most likely obnoxious..tried to talk someone into not joining the Marines for like 3 hours I think..I slept like 4 hours but I feel great! No, wait-I feel like fucking death...wah! Night was fun though..always a trip at Mars..

The first pic is of a sign up at Kurve which I guess is closed now? I never even noticed..if I could stop being a lush perhaps I would notice my surroundings more..Then we got some guy at Mars Bar that people put make-up on..DEAD SEXY!!!!

I saw my friend Dave vending on Astor which I should have done today it being Saturday and all..but nope-I was too hungover..He did let me try on these guitar glasses though which vaguely hide my haggy face..and I got a cute pic with his dog Cookie whom I loves to death...

Other than that not much to report..Maybe I'll see the film Antichrist tonite or just watch The Wire...Antichrist might be a bit much for my wine soaked brain..

Drunken Barrel House Blues Out Now..

Some promotional shit here because I want to be famous..East River String Band's new CD Drunken Barrel House Blues is now available for order at AMAZON

Please order it and hear all your favorite hillbilly delta country blues covers that you know you've been dying to hear!

We will be having a CD release party at Banjo Jim's on December 12th hopefully with Eli Smith and Dom Flemons who play on the album..More info about that soonish..

Went to bed last night at 9am AKA this morning..

Well, my night owl tendencies are wacked..Went to bed at like 9:15 am..slept like 4 or 5 hours the past few days but whatever..Sleep is highly overrated as is eating and blinking. I had a fun fun night and like nightime adventuring..You can meet some cool people wandering around this city..I got a few pics up here..Still missing my nicer camera that I drunkenly lost or had stolen, but whomever has it or finds it will find some interesting photos on it that I hadn't uploaded on here the nutter at Mars bar holding a huge bottle of bi-polar disorder pills while dressed up in a Halo costume..and pics of Crumb looking at 78's and stuff..maybe they will all show up on the internet

Anyway, I saw this paper open today on 1st avenue at a newstand..It's polish or something so I have no clue what it says but it seems there may be a new Charles Willis Miles Maddox Manson on the loose..I'll use my powers of GOOGLING to see what this is all about maybe later..There is a creepy guy in a van who rides around the LES asking me(and probably other girls who are by themselves)where the "voyeur" or "exhibitionist" party is..He has stopped me to ask me this like a dozen times now..He was even outside of mars bar a few nights ago and asked me about it again..Does he really not recognize me or am I the only one being bothered by him?..I have taken to sassing him..I'm like, "Hey Gacy! How are ya? Any new bodies in the basement lately?" Yeah, I am sassing a possible serial killer. I'm retarded. I memorized his license plate so if he kills me he will be easy to track..

Then I just got some pics of the first X-MAS tree guys setting up their wares by the Rock and Roll Church..also known as St. Marks Church..They tried to sell me a wreath and I told them I'm a Jew. They said they would work on getting some Jewish wreaths..awesome!

Anyway, here's me with one of the guys there..He's really working the camera, huh? I had to get pics of that weird santa thing they had there..I won't be so cliche as to point out that the word santa is similar to satan..That joke has been done to death. But look at that thing..Santa is strangling that toy soldier thingy, after he got done raping that little girl whose drink he had slipped roofies into. I kinda wanted to buy that thing and wake up to it everyday..or maybe give it to the Gacy Van guy looking for the fetish party. He might find more takers with that thing strapped onto his creepy VAN OF DEATH.

Anyway, I haven't slept more than 4 or 5 hours the past three days but I feel good. Sleep is for wimps. And narcoleptics. I like staying up and can meet some cool people doing that..(No, not the voyeur guy)!

Weekend in pictures

Weekend is a major family time here in my household. So if you're interested in being a part of this family, you ought to empty your calendar every Saturday and/or Sunday. Weehee.

Personally, I'm loving this tradition because all of us are doing our own things during the weekdays and sometimes we don't really have enough quality time to spend together. And that's why weekends are important for us to let loose, catch up and have fun. Do things we love doing, whatever weird they may be, like playing charade in the train, challenging each other scrabbles, and other "more-normal" activities like watching movies, exploring town and finding new places to indulge in our love for good ol' food.

Whereas they may be a conflict of interest with friends over which movie to watch, it almost never happens with my sisters and I, because we have exactly the same taste in film. Okay, not 'exactly', but roughly the same. They will never make me watch Paranormal Activity, or trick (and guilt-trip?) me into seeing something scary, because they hate that stuffs too. In short? We're always eager to see the same movies, and that's a lot of a helluva relief.

Last weekend we got to see both Evangelion 2.0 and A Christmas Carol, and both are really awesome.

Because we love our new Canon camera, these are the pictures taken from last weekend with the sisters!

You know, I can never say how lucky I am enough to have my sisters around.

What about you guys? Did you have a great weekend? I hope so. I'm heading home tomorrow morning for a week or two, so I don't think I'll be able to update this blog during that time. But I'll keep my tweets goin'! (There's a link in the sidebar, follow me!)

See you soon! Love you long time. =)

Time for Miracles

" It's late at night and I can't sleep
Missing you just runs too deep
Oh I can't breathe thinking of your smile

Every kiss I can't forget
This aching heart ain't broken yet
Oh God I wish I could make you see
Cuz I know this flame isn't dying
So nothing can stop me from trying

Baby you know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
Cuz I ain't giving up on love "

Quotes of the Day

The thing is, it’s okay to do something just because the people you love want you to. Sometimes that’s a good enough reason.

Lights and The City ♥

After 4 years, I can truly see Singapore as my second home, and now I just wanna share a little bit of that with you.

I guess we can call it, an early Christmas gift.

Orchard Road, Marina and the City.

I love seeing the entire town in such festivity. It reminds me why Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year!

I love Lucy..and teenage girls love gay actors.

Well the first pic is of Lucy who owns and runs Lucy's Bar on Avenue A between St Marks and 9th St. She is just so awesome..she likes to fill me with free whiskey often and I always have fun at her bar..She runs it with her daughter and grandaughter who is very pretty and gets hit on all night by drunk guys..Lucy's is one of my favorite places to get wasted at..Lucy's, Mars bar, and Odessa Bar lately have been fun for me and my drunken benders of love..

Then I went to see that damn teen flick Twilight. I just felt I had to. I watch all kinds of stuff..from 90210 to foreign oddball flicks, hardcore horror and gore to political documentaries and conspiracy DIY films..Since twilight seems to be everywhere and is not going away and I am trying to vaguely write a young adult novel, I figured what the hell..I saw the first one on the night the second one opened..It was as cheesy and corny as I expected, but likable. I was entertained at least..The movie theater was hilarious! Teenage girls waiting outside in the rain, shrieking and flipping out over the main actor whom they are all in love with and is probably gay...I took some kinda lame blurry pics-but it was quite the scene of female hormones gone wild..Then yesterday I saw the new twilight film..It is so corny I was giggling through the whole thing..but very entertaining I admit..I guess I am on Team Jacob if I had to choose..Werewolves are way hotter than vampires..NYC has its share of vampires already with the bedbug epidemic..

Then I have a pic of The Villager newspaper box on Second Ave..Just thought it was funny with the Snapple™ and sombrero..I mean, WTF? Har!

This week i plan to see the Lars von Trier film Antichrist and the Michael Moore film hopefully..and i will be updating more..I still got my old camera with me..

no clue.

Usually, I always know where I'm going, what I'm gonna do, what the other person is thinking. That's how I like it.

I wish I knew about you too. But right now, I'm drawing a blank.

From 'Interpreter of Maladies'

I know that my achievement is quite ordinary. I am not the only man to seek his fortune far from home, and I am certainly not the first.

Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept.

As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination.


Meh. I've been so up and down this week, I don't even know what I'm feeling anymore. One minute I'm all happy and hopeful, the next minute I'm gloomy and miserable. Surely it's not normal? Or maybe I'm just being a typical teenager.

(Can I still call myself a teenager, anyway? Don't remind me that my birthday is coming up, and honestly, this is not where I imagine myself to be at 23. I should be in control of my life, instead, I'm all PMS.)

I know I can be so vague sometimes, like I would tell you I'm happy or whatever, but I don't really elaborate why. Maybe because by saying it out loud just reinforces how lousy and pathetic I really am.

Ha! I guess I'm just having a bad week.

So, I'm gonna end this post by posting something hopeful. I think I should plaster this on my forehead, I'm gonna need it badly.

babbling, because that's how I roll, baby!

Random, totally pointless rant we had on one fine afternoon...

Actually I just wanna test whether uploading video here is possible, well, voila! I guess it is! Now you can skip this video and just move on with life, because you don't have to see this. You really don't.

friends are what will matter in the end

We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere. ♥ ♥
