I'm so mad.
I'm so mad.
I'm so f'cking mad,
and I can't decide if I should be.
I feel like a Born Ruffians stalker. Seriously. I haven't even listened to any of their stuff recently. They were in my dream a few nights ago...and then I was catching up on Nirvana the Band the Show, these ridiculously funny Canadian webisodes about these two guys trying to get gigs in Toronto. I've been watching them since the summer. And The Born Ruffians happened to be on the two episodes I didn't see. Seriously though...it's the weirdest coincidence ever.
Oh, oh. So today I get an e-mail from Bowery Presents with all the new gigs for the major linked New York venues. And Tokyo Police Club's playing a set in February with. Born. Ruffians. The gig's not even posted on their own myspace. It's 18+ and TPC sells out places pretty damn quick. I will be going to the Mercury Lounge box office shortly.
But maybe I shouldn't be so quick to deem myself a stalker. The culminating events of the past few days were nothing short of mutually exclusive. Meaning I had no control of the occurrences. Right? Right?! Console me...I wanna be a fan, not a fanatic.
p.s. Kurt Vonnegut (youtube below) came up in discussion in English today. The author, of course.
WHAT IS GOING ON?! This is all too weird.
