 am i lame?

i feel like a total losebag this week. i am not participating in the whole mergefest thing, and everyone else seems to be. but, generally speaking, indie rock and i do not get along. i was toying with the idea of spending the bucks to go see lambchop (who are in no way indie rock, thank you very much) at the carolina theatre, but to be honest i don't want to have to sit through two other unknown-to-me bands beforehand. call me lame if you wish... but keep in mind that i just gave this same theatre $450 yesterday. they have enough of my money at the moment.

so, in more important news, i think we finally have the location nailed down for this upcoming hair makeover thing. david says he's happy to host it. in fact, he practically leapt at the opportunity. the fool.

finally, a few words about my car's air conditioning. it is now fully fixed, and yes, i love not sweating more than i could have dared to hope. but i have one minor complaint... just like sarah posted last month, i am a little bothered by a sense of disconnectedness. i have a harder time hearing what's going on around me now that the windows are rolled up all the time, and i actually kind of miss knowing what the weather is like on the other side of the glass. i used to be able to hear the road, smell the road... hell, even taste the road on certain construction-addled days (not that i miss that part at all), but now i'm in an isolated bubble. maybe this is simply part of a weird adjustment period and i'll eventually get used to it...

you'll have plenty of opportunity to evaluate the weather conditions on your way to and from the nice air-conditioned car. enjoy! ;)

Oh man - your hair makeover will be in CH? This just gets better and better :-)

i'm not doing a single mergefest related thing, except fleeing the station as merge personnel took over after my shift this week. i have absolutely no feelings of lameness about this whatsoever. merge has plenty of support in this area, it's ok for two aging hipsters to sit this one out :) lemme know if you want to go see a movie or something, instead!
