Things that are about my life:

I went to a free Long Winters secret show this week. Lo, it was glorious. Their new album is the jumpsuit. On the subject of concerts: if I made a t-shirt that said, "PUT DOWN THE CAMERA, LOATHSOME BLOGGER," would you buy it?

Donald is having an apartment-warming party tonight. Which corner of his as-yet-unfurnished apartment will I pass out in? If I would you, I'd put even money on the fire escape. Also: since he is moving, I am buying his turntables. What should my DJ name be? Minus points for DJ names that begin with "DJ." Bonus points for references to Aztec mythology and Civil War painters.

The featured article on the front page of Wikipedia just now contained the words "pathetic she-tragedy." This is apparently a type of play in 17th century England focusing on the sufferings of a heroine, and is not to be confused with my feminist post-punk outfit The Pathetic She-Tragedies, with whom I tore up the rooms-above-pubs Manchester scene for three years in the early 80s, my penis tucked between my legs the whole time. (In the music press, the reason for our breakup was cited as "chafing.")

I do tech for a show at UCB on Friday nights at midnight called Liquid Courage, along with the inimitable Mo Fathelbab. It's a sketch open mic where seasoned performers, students, and anybody else who stumbles in can try out new stuff. I really enjoy it: I get to play the first ten seconds of songs I like during blackouts, and it gives me an excuse to do a new solo bit or two every week. Last night I performed a character named Tiguerre Salazar, and Rocco enlisted me to be a creepy phone-voice in his bit, which wasn't scripted. Nothing says Friday night in the city like whispering skeezy shit and Hakeem Olajuwon references into a god mic for the benefit of your friend onstage smoking in goth-drag. You should come out: the show only gets weirder, more fun, and more punk-as-fuck by the week. And it's free!

DERRICK was in New Hampshire last weekend shooting ill videos. It was a total gas. We should have the videos out by the end of this coming week. Watch this space for updates.

Please answer the sentences in this entry ending in question marks at dcpierson at gmail dot com. I will post the responses because it will save me from having to write new things. Love!
