T.G.I.F.F. (fresh friday)

It's Thursday night and it's been a good week, though I am glad it is almost over and time for Friday! I just got back from the Fillmore because for some odd reason, I got asked to dj the lounge there during a Morrissey show. I believe they were trying to fill in a gap? I had to scramble to locate some 80-ish and crooner-style records that would fit and it turned out to be pretty fun. I ended up having a small posse of older gay men asking me how I managed to "steal their record collections", whilst doing little jigs for me. It was very cute. I can appreciate Morrissey in parts, but I didn't feel the need to stay for the show. As you can see I was even dressed like I was ready for a Morrissey show.

Other nice music things & realizations of the my week:

1. The new Aesop Rock album has fun song on it with chipmunk-sounding voices, "None Shall Pass."
2. I love the Polooski remix of "Can't There Be Love" (thanks Matthew Africa) I had to buy it from iTunes this week.
3. Who knew that I could get obsessed with Wanda Jackson, she's awesome! She's on a great Rhino comp called One Kiss Can Lead To Another, she singing "Funnel of Love" and it's all gruff and cool-sounding.

Fashion meeting my music mood:
The thought of going to the Bonde Do Role show tomorrow night makes me want to wear a pair of crazy hightop sneakers like these ones that Karim Rashid designed.(photo from Paper Magazine)

Speaking of hightops, looks this Jeremy Scott pair over at Harputs.

Art show realizations: (photo from

1. SF artist, Barry McGee has a show on display in LA at the RedCAT through Nov. 25th. Now there are 2 arts shows of must-see status in LA, including the Murakami one that opens soon.
2. Nathaniel Russell and crew have a show called, Instant Memory at SFSU through October 10th. Nice stuff.

Magazine reading:

1. The story about Devandra Banhart and Miranda July in October's Bust is funny.

Oh, I forgot to say one weird thing was that Morrissey doesn't allow the Fillmore to have apples in the entry like they usually have. So, instead they just had a tablecloth with apple motif and a little apple by my name. What was up with that I wonder?

i remember they didn't do apples for green day once, because they were afraid the kids would throw them. but morrissey fans? they only throw flowers.

"death for no reason is murder..."
perhaps that applies to apples too? maybe he only eats dead leaves now. for the record, i love me some morrissey...
