Attrition are on tour. Tonight they're in the very awesome venue Bar Sinister in LA. Tomorrow they'll be in San Francisco at The DNA Lounge (where I saw Nicki Jaine and it was quite awesome.)
I also see there's a Steve Roach show in Tuscon in March. That's the kind of thing I'll drive all night, see the show, and drive right back to Chico for.

I, of course, won't get to see Attrition because I'll be at this.

So many television shows I'd like to own a tape of. The short version of this article goes something like this: PBS = rules. Education Secretary = sucks.

But seriously, the bright side of all of this is that I remember at least two things from my childhood. 1) there are a lot of children who are much smarter than the people hired to educate them and 2) when a blowhard grown up busts a gasket over something, it usually makes it all the more interesting to a child and all the more something they want to get into, if for no other reason than to show that they are nothing like the idiot grown up.

I was raving about Kathy Acker on the LiveJournal about 15 minutes ago (if you want to go check that out it's on my LiveJournal.) Here's an interview of Kathy Acker by R.U. Sirius. The pop culture things at the end dates it a bit. Makes me wonder what Kathy Acker would be saying today were she with us.

I can't express how much I want a t-shirt that says "SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: BECAUSE GOD IS STILL SPEAKING"

Documentaries about fans of something or other has almost become its own genre. My response to such films is usually along the lines of "meh."
But here's one I'm actually excited about seeing. And, of course, one I could be in I imagine.

I'll put this out there now and around the third week of Feburary I'll probably plead with desperation about it so much that you'll get sick of it and stop reading this for a few weeks.
I'm going to need a room mate for the new house starting in March.
You'll get the larger bedroom, a shared kitchen and a shared bathroom. There's a fridge, a washing machine and drier and all kind of other things too. It's $350 a month plus shared utilities. It might be $375 if you want to bully me into letting you have the Spooky Old Barn as your space too, but I'm open to the idea. I'll let you move in the last week in Feburary and not charge you for the few days before March if you'd like (I'm ccol like that. You could live rent free for a few days if you want to save me from my pickle of having bitten off more rent than I can continue to chew.)
Room mate needs to be able to deal with an eccentric, but a nice one. I'll wash dishes and I won't throw loud parties (and won't mind if you do on occasion,) but I might be sitting in the front room making sock monkeys when you bring friends over.
March. Think about it.
I figure like a billion people on the planet are now on line. Out of those I'm sure at least 5 or 6 people probably read this thing. 5 or 6 people, you've got to know someone in Northern California, or know someone who knows some on in Butte County. Or maybe you've considered moving to Butte County yourself. If not, now's the time. Live in The House of Leaves with me. See beautiful Chico, home of The Chico Outlaws, this coast's almond farms, and the heroin that killed that guy from Sublime.
Help a guy out this March. I need a room mate. That is all.
