saw slint the other night. they sounded nice and tight and loud, but seemed a little bored.

saw a chopped off braid of brownish red hair on the subway tracks tonight, the uptown express track at union square. it was about a foot and half long, with a blue ribbon tied at one end. did someone give herself a spur of the moment new look, or was it an assault and makeover?

saw three movies in a row which feature the death of a lovable character: Turtles Can Fly, Nobody Knows, and Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance. highly recommended, but not especially easy to watch.

heard Smog's new record "a river ain't too much to love." really really great all the way through.

a young kid asked me tonight in the grocery store where was the cream cheese. "you know, for bagels," he said.
