Strathnavern: BOB GOULET BITES DOG

THURSDAY
What is art? What constitutes art? Who is to say what art is? What are the boundaries of artistic medium? What stones are left unturned in art? What will be the next artistic movement? Who will be the next vanguard? Have certain artistic genres lost their appeal with age? What is the difference between timeless and representative? If none of these questions interest you in the slightest and getting liquored-up to badass guitar is more your speed, check out Barry Leach at the Mississippi Museum of Art from 6 – 9. Aside from the implied alcohol, Rooster’s and Basil’s will be serving free food. Just don’t touch anything or tell anybody you know me.

FRIDAY
Two for the price of two. That’s right, have you ever wanted to see two bands and pay for each individually? Well, here’s your chance. Soulshine will be hosting Brotherhood of Groove. Lame name? Darn tootin. Music? Considerably less lame. They’re an uptown New Orleans (read: caucasian yankees) band playing rare-grooves. And during breaks or at the sight of someone you owe money, you can run across the street for Kevin Kinney (w/ a band) at Martin’s. Feel free to accidentally pour your beer on the jackass that keeps screaming for “Straight to Hell.”

P.S. Despite popular perception, Howard Ballou never hula-hooped for 87 consecutive hours. It was more like 52.

P.P.S. Yes, I’m quite sure John Cheever’s The Falconer is not about Steve Bartkowski

P.P.P.S. I seem to have swallowed your shoe horn. Again.

man, the boston/new york series was a blast…i’m glad i was alive to witness what will certainly go down in history as one of the best series in baseball ever…who needs a world series after 7 games like that? i’m a casual red sox fan (mainly because boston was the first home of the braves) but i am an AVID yankee hater…it was possibly too good a feeling to find them on the short end of the stick in such unprecedented fashion…i watched the game @ soulshine, where i was the first person elminated from the dart tournament (wasn’t throwing well @ all)…amelia and i watched the last 3 innings @ the bar and shared shots of jager to celebrate the red sox’s victory…


**jonathan lethem comes to lemuria tonight…bobby and i are both giddy @ the prospect of getting to meet this guy as he’s one of our favorite contemporary writers…reading is @ 5:30 @ lemCom…please come join, i think it will be good…

the simple confusion…

wild wild week…programming @ home on 2 projects (both going well and progressing)..had to go down to brookhaven and spent last night and all of today rewiring the boerner law firm’s network @ their new location…it’s the first time i’ve ever wired a network from scratch…playing with all those little wires makes me feel like an espionage agent (looking up waiting for homeland security to come through the roof)…the purpose of the post is to remind late wed. afternoon browsers of the dart tournament @ soulshine tonight @ 8pm…we had a blast playing last week, more people are showing up this week, and first prize is a $30 (or maybe 40?) bar tab @ soulshine…plus jaysus is bartending and playing tunes…

murray pace’s murderer was sentenced to death last night, both closing and opening yet another chapter in that inexplicable tragedy that changed the lives of so many people, many of whom i know and countless more that i will never meet…i was not a very close friend of murray’s but we were part of the same group of friends at millsaps and in baton rouge and i have been good friends with her brother for a long time…i had arrived late @ chuck and grace’s wedding in alexandria, where murray was to have been a bridesmaid, the friday she was murdered…i could tell from the moment that i ran into the crew, sitting on the front steps of the hotel downtown, that something was incredibly wrong even before chuck took me aside and gave me the news…i still don’t really know how we all made that weekend joyous (well, booze and pills played their part), but we managed…2002 had already been a bad year and from that day forward, aside from a few bright spots, it only got worse for a lot of people close to me…before any of that, though, i think of anne pace, murray’s mom, who has been so devastated and driven by all of this…i read her statement to the jury during the penalty phase of the trial and it was heart-breaking, beautiful and moving…
