Oh how I have neglected this blog.... for anyone who is curious, I had a great time at the Brooklyn Half Marathon and finished in 2:00:03. If only I didn't have to stop to tie my shoe I could have broken 2 hours!
I visited Rochester, NY yesterday to do some work at a school, and I stayed with my good friend Austin. Rochester is a much larger and nicer city than I anticipated, and I had a good time during the 24 hours of my stay.
This weekend - I'm returning to Columbia's campus to play a show with Hello Nurse on the lawn at Barnard. We will be playing at 3:30pm on Lehman Lawn for anyone that's interested. There will be frisbee tossing and large slices of Koronets pizza involved.
I got an iTunes gift certificate from a coworker, and here are the albums I bought, all of which I highly recommend:
Albert Hammond, Jr. - Yours to Keep Guitarist from the Strokes formed his own band. If you like the Strokes, you'll like this too.
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver Fantastic dance rock album.
Dr. Dog - We All Belong Recorded using all vintage instruments and analog recording gear from the 60's and 70's. This is one of the best pop albums I've heard in a long time. 5 stars!!
Silversun Pickups - Carnavas West coast band, sounds reminiscent of Smashing Pumpkins. Fantastic sound textures and production.
Easy Star All Stars - Radiodread This is a reggae band playing the entirety of Radiohead's OK Computer. This is a must-have album if you like OK Computer.
Thursday, April 12, 2007 Run Then Eat
Saturday is the Brooklyn Half Marathon, and I'm getting pumped up! My office space is provided by the Robin Hood Foundation, and a lot of folks here are running in the race so Robin Hood sponsored nice Nike shirts - and they were so kind to give the two Uncommon Schools runners shirts as well. We even got to have our names monogrammed on the shirt. On my order form I wrote "Go Dude Go" as my name, so of course my shirt is awesome.
After the race I'm going to an eating party which is less of a contest and more of a spectacle. Participants choose a food, set a goal for how much of that food they can eat, and then gorge like crazy. Here are some examples:
3 jars of apple sauce 1 gallon of ice cream (not finished) 1 box of Joe (Dunkin Donuts box of coffee, not finished) 1 bucket of fried chicken and 1/2 watermelon (so un-PC, so funny) 1 of each item on the White Castle menu
My choice: cereal. I think I'm going to try to down 3 boxes of Raisin Squares cereal, but that means I have to find a market that sells it. Hopefully the 13.1 miles I run in the morning will leave me ready for the gluttony that will proceed.
