Berlin and The Maurice Complex = BFF for life

Alright. Last night was perhaps one of the most amazing experiences of my life - and I'm pretty sure this counts for Biz, Nat, & Lenny too. Nat wanted to videotape The Maurice Complex playing our pre-recorded tapes at some public spots in Berlin. We all went out to this little "platz" (squares that they have surrounding large intersections) and we started to play the tape player and hand it back and forth to one another while she videotaped. I shit you not, within half an hour (we had already had to rewind the tape twice) there was a crowd of 30 to 40 people surrounding us. They were crowded around pretty tightly and quietly (Germans are super quiet on the street anyway) so they could hear the music and we continued for another two rewinds. At the end everyone, EVERYONE, stood around us clapping and asking us where we from and what were our plans for the trip. It was crazy!!!! After twenty or so minutes of broken English and German, most of the crowd dispersed. Then, this 40-something year old gentleman walked up to us and introduced himself. Turns out his name is Volker Weidhaas and he runs the Berlinische Galerie!!! He asked if this upcoming Thursday, the 3rd, we would be willing to open a night of performances there with our own performance. This place ( looks amazing and we are so fucking excited. Supposedly that night is invitation only and there will be a perfomance by a troope of dancers performing a new piece with, get ready for your asshole to spread open and the poop to flow, MATTHEW (VASELINE) BARNEY. Needless to say we immediately agreed and will go on at 9pm. Holy shit. We love Berlin. Holy shit. We love Berlin. We are all sitting around while I type and still freaking out. I don't have much more internet time left on my account so the small other updates:

1) January 1st we are going to submit (it's the last day) work that we can print out or transfer (Nat and Biz have some DVDs, I'm doing Kinkos printouts, Lenny is painting something real fast) to the Berlin City Biennielle and we'll hear by the 4th.

2) Lenny and I were drunk last night and were told that we were being "too eeronik" and almost got into a fight when talking to a twenty year old German Hip-Hop fan who repeatedly told us about how "I am hip-hop, I LIVE HIP-HOP.

3) Biz and Nat are giggling up a storm, and it's super fun to be here.

We'll upload pics and videos if we figure out how. OMG. WE LOVE BERLIN.

How are 7 people I know in Berlin Right NOw

I just ate at popeyes and want to puke
i wanted to puke before i went or on the way
but like, that's besides the point
i'm wearing the most ridiculous hat, but trying to resist the urge to take a picture of myself on my friends photobooth.
now we're drinking beer and looking up shoes on line to see what shoes we think that each of us should have
and we figure teh best autistic way to go about this is to draw pics of the shoes and hang it around our neckz so when we go to the store we can show them to store people when they ask us if we need help or whatever.

I basically wanted to say that we ate the popeyes in a big grandma car and then put the chicken bones in side jesus crib at the towns nativity scene at the most religious town on the jersey shore. or atleast in this area .
there were just bags of sand in there so like it should be a good thing for lilbabby jezzzeus.
and like we prayed I was JOSEPH NAD Y MY FRIEND WAS MARY

last night i ate a huge bag of popcorn adn a giant soda my freind got me at the movies then i ate a giant bag of junior MINTS with the intention of puking, really, and but went to sleep real sad tehn woke UP at 5 aAM wiht PUKE IN MY mouth. I hope you are having a GOOD HOLIDAY BREAK TOOOOOOOO@!!!! <<3333

ok, ahappy newyersszz

If anyone else.
Drinks from this mug.
I will kill them.


For a really long time, I thought that this mug broke. But thank GOD, it was hidden away somewhere in our kitchen, and now I can drink out of it again. Amen.

Happy New Year Jerks!!!

Newport Mall

1:41 am train NYC to New brunswick

last night i might have experienced one of the most terrifying (could be) accidents in my life.
as mike and i were boarding the last train, i was noticing that the gap between the platform and the train was quite large. dangeroulsy large! and no sooner as i thought this and started to point it out to mike that the guy in front of me fell in between the platform and the train. i stood there in shock and then we grabbed the guy and helped him up and out. it was so freaking. he must have hurt his arm pits and ribs so bad! and an awful awful scare.

all i could think about was what if that was an old person, short person or little kid who fell below the train! my gosh so scary... and that i thought it and then it happened.. eek!

we moved down the platform afterwards and the gap gradually got smaller which was even weirder. but with out luck we sat next to drunk assholes who talked about sleeping with 20+ spanish women, and doin pullups on the bar (the one that holds your jacket and suitcase)
total bro.

anyhoo. shawn and all, you guys need to put a large santa in front of your house too. :)

soo sleepy. jp was princess diaries. it made me happy.

happy holidays all. have fun in berlin you crazy kids. GET ME SOMethiNG!

they switched it my senior yr of HS
and no one knew what it meant for a while. but then we learned and in class would just all hum along.

guys i want to apologize if my sick spreads to any of you.
i hope it doesn't
i feel pretty awful
and will feel worse if i made you guys feel like this.

i had mega fun at the bar though, although i'm sure it didn't help this sickness
i feel like i'm gonna die wheeee

but everyone be safe over break and i really mean that.
have a good one 10-4!

i wish vic/ god had the power to heal me
that 10-4 isn't good for much.

i love youuu!

No Trumpeting in Public

There is a construction site across the street from my house.
They didn't like it when I came by with my trumpet.
So they got signs.

do we have a courtlandt + reid, alex, mittenz, mercy, jacki, sharon, shawn portrait?
is that too many people?!?!?!!?!

my god just give me answers!!!
um, can we dress alike?

also, reid posted a mixmas post,

m i X m a s

1. Make a cool mix
2. Decorate it special
3. Give it to friends

Inspired in part by Marissa's post, the holidays (sorry mike), and 6 hours of defensive driving class.

When should we do this?! I was thinking if we wanted to be lame we could tape them to the hallway wall, but I think its more fun in person.

Chinese Art is Fucking Cool and Shit

trying not to distract shawn

mercy says that i look emo
when itake picture of myself
but really my face jsut needs teh pictures to be taken to stay a live you know what i'm talkin about
I made a life lesson
wait no it's a life realization for 12/11/07
If you get hit by a car with your laptop in your backpack. that will really suck.
becasue one you could die two your laptop could get busted.

i kinda have to pee but i also want to open my giant icetea but i feel like the art library gets mad about BIG OPEN dranks.

me and shawn are in you guyz library
we are studying
i dont like it really

we are learning about mice adn men
really his sheet says
Gaussian elimination linear systems
mine says

sukc it

biz? cmere and video chat

this is how i feel right now:

I want to take apicture of shawn but i want him to keep learning

his face don't need the pics to be alive

if we post more gossip

we get more hits

when worlds colllide: Brownstein on Oprah on NPR

while updating my resume for the 14th time in the past fortnight I heard a strange sound-Carrie Brownstein on the NPR show "Day to Day" talking about Oprah's favorite things. it was an aural rapid fire blossoming of MY favorite things over my time in adolescence. in order Oprah 1992-1995, NPR 1990-present, Sleater-Kinney ---> Carrie Brownstien, 1995-Present. A different kind of resume.

She's got a regualar Blog now on npr. Which is all I want for Xmas.
