I Spy Adam Green

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.

The New York Times Can’t Tell the Strokes and the White Stripes Apart

*Snort* I still find this funny. The Times sucking it up big time. Oh the irony of the mixup!:

The picture caption on Thursday with the Pop Life column, about bands that are bringing new energy to rock ‘n’ roll, referred incorrectly to a highly regarded recording by the White Stripes, which is in the forefront of the movement. It is “White Blood Cells,” not “Is This It,” and it is the group’s third album, not its first. “Is This It,” as the column noted, is the first album by the band Strokes.

Cast, “Desert Drought”… the singer sounds like Robbie Williams… and Saves the Day.. that Funeral song or whatever it is… are these kids out of high school yet? I saw the vid last night and I kept thinking of Ben Lee or something.

And I don’t know what this is… but it’s an odd design for a site basically about porn.

The Strokes, “When It Started” is on NME Radio right now. Excellent.

And no matter what anyone says, Starsailor is quite good. Even if “Lullaby” sorta sounds like “Happy Xmas” by John Lennon.

I keep forgetting… Travis loves NY… and NY loves Travis.

Coldplay just updated…. Wonder if they are going to do the cover of “Here Comes The Sun” in New York next week…

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???

I Went to a Strokes Show and All I Got Was…STABBED?!?!

Oh my lord. I just took my first sober shower since The Strokes show… and I now see I have a GIANT gash on my upper thigh/lower butt and a HOLE in my jeans near the rear pockets because of that girl that was ON TOP of poor Julie who was STABBING us with her broken drumstick/vampire-slayer steak. Oh my GOD. This is worse than that horrible bruise I got at the Hammerstein show! ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, man!
