New York Pix

Here are some pix from a trip back to New York. It was so good to soak in the sights, sounds, food and culture once more:

A Week in Recap.

Wow! It has been a crazy wondeful week.

I started off with weekend brunch at Little Skillet, a tiny little window serving incredible fried chicken and fresh waffles — just steps away from 330 Ritch in SoMA.

Then booked tickets to go see the Boredoms play in New York! Yippee!

Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth

Sonic Youth proved that they could still rock out on Monday night (see photo of Thurston Moore above, from sfdavidz).

I can’t wait for Sunn O))) to slowly drone me away in a live setting. And speaking of Sunn O))), I was reminded of their homage to Southern Lord’s mainstay group, Earth when I came across a new word: Ouroboros.

According to Wikipedia, an ouroboros is “an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon swallowing its own tail and forming a circle.” I’d heard about this symbol in a few different ways, from Jung to Norse mythology — apparently even Plato found it significant.

Earth produced a song called “Ouroboros Is Broken” on the slowly unfolding album, Extra-Capsular Extraction. Find it and listen closely for the tail…

Heading back east…

After tonight’s Kontrol party — Dapayk‘s performing, much excited — I’ll be heading to the airport to fly back East. This time it’s off to the Poconos and NYC for a week… drop me an email if you’re around! Hoping to hit up the Wolf + Lamb party at the Bunker to see Dapayk twice in one week.

A Whirl of Cities… and Back Again

Back up and running again… and upgraded WordPress to Ronan. For T-giving, I headed to the ROSEE house in Boston where I hung with my bro, his ever-lovely wife and their wee ones. ‘Twas brilliant to chill with them, especially with Eliott (the newest member!). Eric and I went to the Fogg and Busch-Reisinger Museums over at Harvard, where we marveled over Rembrandt, Wiener Werkst�tte textiles and El Lizzitsky drawings in the study room. On my last day, we wandered over to Walden Pond to skip stones and stare into its clear, clear waters…

Then hopped to NYC where I avoided the post-Tgiving shoppers in favor of roaming back to the old haunts, exploring Brooklyn life and catching up with personal visits. Met up with Geeti, Dana, Tara, and Brooke (ever-prankish Mawrtyrs) as well as entrepreneurial Mike, DIS design co-hort Justin, and Microcosm/Goosehound kids David Last, Ezekiel Honig and Morgan Packard. Oh my! Also discovered Chrysanthemum Flower Summer Tea at the Wild Lily Tea Room around the corner from Mandi‘s gallery in Chelsea, va-va-voomed with the the fabulous Valdet over at Barney’s and missed another This Or That (boohoo).
