after the jump!

I'm back! And more busy than ever. Oy, it never ends, right? Well one of these days I'll say I'll blog every day and actually mean it, although with the way my life is going these days I'm not sure when that will happen. But, of course, I'll try my best to keep you posted.

London was wonderful and Pat survived the whole going to another country thingy. I always feel like I need a vacation after a vacation. It would be nice to have a couple days to do absolutely nothing. I didn't realize how much I missed my mom's cooking, so that was a definite plus. I wish I could get out there to see them more than I do, but again -- time is never on my side.

But of course, I cannot let another day go by without letting you know all the details about the After The Jump Festival that is going down this Saturday, August 25 at Studio B in Brooklyn. It's been a busy couple months for a group of 22 of New York's bloggers and it's all coming down to Saturday night. Underrated favorites and my good friends Jukebox The Ghost and Ra Ra Riot will be playing the FREE daytime show, along with a slew of other great bands, so come on down. And stay late for the dance party. It's totally worth your $12 (which all goes to a good cause.)

Greetings from London. In only two days, we've done quite a bit. Look! I even managed to run into my three best mates: Matt, Kim, and Eddie Argos from Art Brut.

you could do better if you tried.

Whoops. I forgot to update this thing all week. I blame being very busy at work, and if you haven't heard we announced the first round of bands at this year's CMJ Music Marathon, so get ready. It's gonna be nuts.

In the past week I have seen four movies: Simpsons, Harry Potter, Ratatouille, and a screening of Ethan Hawke's new flick The Hottest State (which deserves its own post, to come soon.) I floated around apartments again, I have about 3 weeks before I can move into my new one. That date cannot come soon enough. I played cards. I saw Daft Punk and the Rapture. And last night I saw five bands: Silent League, Ford & Fitzroy, Ra Ra Riot, Wakey!Wakey!, and Los Campesinos!. It was pretty spectacular.

And today? I'm off to London for a week. I've been told to actually take a vacation, so I'm going to try and lay off the computer as much as possible. My boyfriend, however, is a much better blogger than I am so visit his site for updates this week.

I'll be back soon.
