The skunk

Last night, I had a dream that Matthew was chasing a cartoon skunk! He chased it over rivers and through the woods, all over Manhattan, down a beach in the Keys, through a parade in LA... and it just kept blinking at him with it's small little cartoon eyes.... *blink blink*

So I woke up and I drew it in photoshop... what do you guys think? It is pretty friggin awesome, right? Yea, Pepe' La Peu... take that!

SXSW 2010


SXSW just happened here in Texas. Downtown Austin was shut down for four days while 2,000 bands took over. Multitudes of free parties, free swag, free music taking up every few feet of space (even the restaraunt supply store across the road had a band playing). Bill Murray was pouring drinks at the Shangri-La, Neutral Milk Hotel was playing on a street corner, Perez Hilton had a big party... even GWAR was here! GWAR was giving away free prizes for whoever got covered in the most blood at their show....

We crammed four guests into our house - Dru, a gorgeous female music artist from Brooklyn, Pat's friend Johnny Wright who is studying Music Law in Detroit, my model friend Barbadoes Pearl from Dallas, and of course, My Matthew - Lots of nights of Apples to Apples, partying till we stumbled home on the bus, lots of sing alongs in the apartment - it has been a really fun week. Exhausting but worth every minute....

As for SXSW - I cannot stand lines! SXSW is FULL of lines - they are everywhere. I kept trying to see "big" "wellknown" bands for the first half of the week... Artists like Band of Horses, She and Him, Muse - but those lines will drive a person MAD! All that standing and doing nothing, standing and not moving - By Friday, I removed all the large bands from my schedule.... Matthew and I trekked over to the East Side, far far away from 6th street.... Visiting small venues, full of talented unheard of musicians (which I think is more of the spirit of SXSW anyways) - Bought all kinds of CDS - Been importing them into Itunes for the last hour....

Matthew.... my best friend, my other half, my gay best bud, my cock-nom-nom-nommer, my outdoor Burning Man pal.... is visiting me until the end of March. I am trying to convince him to leave Syracuse and to move to Texas to live with me ... In order to convince him to leave beautiful lush upstate NY, I am going to spend the majority of the next 10 days hiking, eating vegan food, laying in the sun, swimming, and working out till my limbs fall off...

Twestival 2010!
