Oh yeah, I finally bought Is This It.
I was looking at The Face today (Jan issue) and they have this thing, asking people at the Sidewalk Cafe “What’s the best Christmas present you ever received?” The 3 or 4th one is some guy named Adam, 20 who says, “Hannakuh candles. It sucks, I know.” Yeah, that’s right ladies and gents, Mista Adam Green.
Julie and I were walking around today, dogging the rain. Some guy next to us at Around the Clock ordered a Screwdriver at 1:15pm… the girl ordered a Long Island Iced Tea with her breakfast. Yes. Hardcore.
Julie got a Moldys CD.
Get your VCRs set:
MTV WILL BE PREMIERING A 1/2 HOUR GORILLAZ SPECIAL
GORILLAZ IN ‘CHARTS OF DARKNESS’ TO AIR THIS SUNDAY @ 1AM (SORT OF MONDAY EARLY EARLY)
AND AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY, BUT I STILL DON’T HAVE A TIME.
The premiere includes one of the gorillaz ‘bites’, and moments with various folks involved, including Jamie and Damon.
It also premieres ‘Tomorrow Comes Today’ and ‘Rock da House’.
Crawls will run across “19/2000′ as it airs on both MTV and MTV2 to promo the show.
You know, I didn’t realize it until now, but there are a lot of people who have sites that were at the show last night. And it’s kind of weird that I don’t know any of them.
I’m so fickle. Moldys tonight. I’m so f*cking over it, etc. Unsolicited hug. Take a bath, Adam.
It all started with the B-boy. We were all talking about the costumes the Moldys wore, and what each one was… then Adam came out and B-boy was like, “ask him- he’s nice to his fans.” Then Adam came over and tried to give a hug, but it was more like, “Dude- what are you doing?”
There was some blabber about the Campus Diner and how Adam loves “that shit” because it’s like a “downgraded Planet Hollywood.” This was because the B-boy we were talking to was all mockingly asking, “Hey where’s the afterparty?” and Adam was like “We never have an afterparty.” Then someone was like, “we’re having one at the campus diner.” That’s when Adam stumbled all around the group and starting spewing out how he and his friend always used to go in and eat there… Everyone was like.. Ok. Uh…??
Adam was Rainbow Bright tonight. At one point, he ripped open his vest and exposed his nipples. I was horrified.
Kimya made a funny joke by saying “Some skinny pretty girl who sings about socialism.” You had to be there.
In other weirdness. That kid, Gordon James Levitt or whatever it is from Third Rock from the Sun was at the show fucking DANCING LIKE A MANIAC in the front during Bedroom .. uh.. whatever that band was. Everyone was like, “What’s up with the pajama pants?”
R.G. was there too… with a girl I’ll call “collagin lips.” It was like that chick I saw at the Coldplay show last night. Weiiiiirddd.
Jennifer from work came to the show! Yay! And my feet still hurt from last night. Ouch.
Today’s general feeling? Weirdness.
Today’s lesson? You worship the exotic, downplay the familiar.
50 minutes ago I saw Adam Green standing by the Astor Place 6 Uptown station. I had just come up from the 6 Downtown and crossed the street. I saw Adam and was like, “Oh, it’s Adam Green,” I walked by and didn’t say anything because he was with someone. I stopped for a second, turned around and confirmed that I had just indeed seen Adam. I kept on walking, laughing to myself on the way home.
Tan blazer. Jeans. Blue LL Bean backpack. Gaping mouth. Signature look.
Oh, and I don’t want to marry him anymore. My lack of enthusiasm upon seeing him signaled that to me. I was more concerned about 1. Telling Jenn I’d seen him and 2. Still looking out for Michael Pitt.
Upon arrival at home, I asked myself, “Why didn’t you care more that you’d just seen Adam Green?” And I came to the conclusion that I don’t want to have any thing to do with these people out of context. Like out of the concert realm. Like it’s cool to see them at shows and say “hey- good job,” but when I see them like randomly, it’s like a violation of my “real” life. I don’t know. I was just thrown off by the whole thing.
I’ll tell him on Thursday that I saw him but didn’t say hi.
Moldys Moldys and more Moldys.
Dude… is A&R really this evil or is this guy just out to get everyone?
Oh look at the totally cool new Wagamama tees! I want one! They are red with a black design (ramen bowl)! Oh bless!
The New York Times goes hipster… there’s so much name dropping in this article, I think I got hit with something. The Stripes, The Strokes, BRMC, even The Vue and The Moldys. The article is pretty boring, and not very insightful… but read it just because they got the word “Ohmigod” into the Times… is that in the dictionary???
The beauty sale at work was crazy. People were shopping in other people’s offices. Totally wrong!
Anyhoo- since the cat is already out of the bag- The Strokes on Saturday Night Live January 19, 2002.
And since this weekend will probably be dubbed the “I love Adam Green Weekend,” let’s have a look at an article from Long Island about the Moldys… from Newsday.<
They were really so fantastic- and the verdict on Adam Green? DEFINITELY A-DORA-F*CKING-BLE! So cute. So Beck meets Julian Casablancas. SO young. So… *sigh.* What a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving weekend!
ADAM GREEN, I LOVE YOU. MARRY ME.
But the show.. Altogether the show wasn’t bad. I didn’t go to the show on time, so I missed the first 2 opening bands… Squares and something else… uh… I ended up getting to the Mercury Lounge around 10 and came in just as Dufus was taking the stage. They were… interesting…. Then about an hour later, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs took the stage, and they were actually quite good. That lead singer chick was rockin’ it. A little Debbie Harry, a little Cyndi Lauper… all good.
But the Moldys stole the show (and my heart). They came in and did the dance number- I nearly died laughing. It was so cute. Adam was wearing a spiffy new Elvis jumpsuit made by Kimya’s aunt. So fantastic. Just seeing Adam Green jump around and shake his tush wearing a white Elvis jumpsuit w/ rhinestones on it totally made my week. I can’t wait to see the Moldys again at the Vanderbilt. Forget the freaking STROKES- It’s the MOLDYS I want to see! Seeing the Moldys makes me happy to be in this country… and especially in New York!
Why did I keep noticing Adam’s nether-regions? Oh that’s right, because it was at eye level. Yes. Right. Yes. It’s so hot when Adam plays the recorder.
Hey Sarwat, remember the boat to Belgium when we were waiting for food on that line that never moved and that little blond boy told his mummy, “We’ve been waiting for AGES!”? I was just thinking about that right now. And how I miss Europe.
The Moldys are tomorrow. I will let everyone know if 1) I think Adam Green does look like Julian Casablancas 2) If I think he’s really 20.
