andee's world: Late Fall Dispatch

andee's world

Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.

Late Fall Dispatch


It's been an eventful season. Something about autumn just makes me want to maximize every day, to pack things in -- there's a quality in the air that just motivates. Maybe it's the sense that it's all a fleeting moment and that in a matter of weeks it'll all be gone and the shroud of winter will have rolled in. Just like life itself I guess.

Some highlights of the last few months:


Concerts...The Rapture, Massive Attack, Ladytron, CSS, Lansing-Dreiden.....................................................................................................

Halloween weekend with Julie! Horror movie overload, a screening of Nosferatu at St. John the Divine Cathedral, jack-o-lantern carving in PA, the parade..........................................................................................
Seeing Spamalot with my parents. Highly recommended.........................................................................
......................................
Closing night of the Spiegel Tent with Jared G. and Justin Bond and a load of freakishly wonderful performers........................................................................................................
Watching season five of Six Feet Under and season three of Little Britain..........................................................................................................
Going to the Union Square thee-ate-er with Xavier, Lady Bunny and Lady Miss Kier...to see Little Miss Sunshine -- a great movie, but the company made it even better....................................................................................................................
The rapid recovery of John Kirkwood..................................................................................................................
Checking out American Hardcore with Theabug. A grainy, brutal visual adaptation of the book and a must-see for punk fans..............................................................................................................The Dewey Beach Music Conference.....

Emerging from Evil Dead The Musical with Kristahn with no bloodstains! .........................................................The mid-term elections....................................Filthy Fridays with Dario F-ing Speedwagon!!
