Parties, Gigs, Travel...
1.WOMAN @ Lit (Jan 26, 9:30PM)
They looked great, sounded great and...I have proof.

2. Miami, FL (Jan 27 - Jan 30)
Cheesy... I can't believe some like the place so much. Lot's of fashion victims, boob jobs, face lifts, botox, and eurotrash.I enjoyed the architecture. We did go to a very cool restaurant called Wish. It's in The Hotel (Tiffany building, on Collins Ave.) The beach is OK but I rather go to a Mexican beach. The food sucked, its not nearly as good as any regular restaurant in N.Y. I didn't even take pictures... well, I do have one.





3.Jaiko's Mon Amour, Mon Amour party at La Caverna. (Feb 2, 11:30AM)
Very original... This kitchy italian restaurant-bar on Rivington make me feel as if I was in the Natural Bridge Caverns in Texas although it didn't smell like humidity...it smelled like hookas and crappy inscense. Italian (or Soviet) mafia in charge. Good looking cokeheads dancing like Spike Jonze in that Fat Boy Slim video. Your regular gang of mo's, Japan's exhiles and high end vintage shopping hipsters.The music was an amaxing mix of 60's mod, french pop (Go-Go) and some soul.
*Jaiko is Tres's girlfriend, Tres is Brett's friend, and the leader of Psychic Ills.


Cd's I wanna buy:
1. Thumbsucker soundtrack
2. The Life Pursuit - Belle and Sebastian (Matador!!!!!YEAH)
