we’re going to the beach for the weekend - leaving landlocked atlanta tonight directly after work. i’m overflowing with excitement.

so - I’ll take this opportunity to share with you a song i wrote a long while ago.  it’s about going to the beach.  i like to think of it as a prophecy of big fun.  

Beach Spirals 

A HAPPY FUTURE MEMORY OF THE BEACH

the beach is whiter than anything
and wide enough to walk upon
and where it’s wet
the sky reflects
and we’ll draw giant spirals with our feet

the water is warmer than anything
and green enough to hypnotize
we’ll sing songs
all day long
and wallow in the glory of good times

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!

and if you see a shark
or a jellyfish
it’s OK
don’t get too scared
we’ll just take a break from swimmin’

the day at the beach is the best
but the night can be even better
we’ll all go up to our friends’ beach house
get drunk
and get it on with our girlfriends

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!

Joe’s a Real Person Now

September 20, 2006 | Filed Under fantastic weekend, friends, god bless the internet, happening, music | 1 Comment 

Our dear friend and comrade Joe Stickney has his name in print on a real life mostly respectable website - Pitchfork - for being a (rather integral) part of the Table of the Elements festival that took place at Eyedrum a couple weeks ago.I wish I could’ve gone for the whole festival; it sounded, and apparently was, incredible. But it was expensive and I’m not a rich man. I did make it to the second to last night, and caught Tony Conrad’s awesome violin intonation deal as well as Rhys Chatham’s Essentialist (for which Joe was the “drummist”) (or is it “drum-a-teer” ? who can say.) I also listened to a little bit of Leif Inge’s 24 hr version of Beethoven’s Ninth. But I couldn’t stay for the whole thing.Overall, it was a pretty impressive night of avant garde music, and everyone seemed to be really digging it. Also, somewhat coincidentally, there was a miniature reunion of a bunch of us former Savannah residents who all happened to be in town. It was real cool to hang with those dudes again for the first time in about 4 years.Anyway, the point of all this is that Pitchfork did a nice “live review” piece on the festival, and Joe gets mentioned very favorably. In fact, the point at which his name comes up seems to be the moment when the reviewer noticed that everyone in the room was high on the awesomeness of everything, and Joe is given credit for bringing a new vital flavor to the pantry. So, way to go, Joe.update 9.24.06:Joe and the Rhys Chatham’s Essentialist gang just got written up in Pitchfork AGAIN - twice in the same week. The new one is about the Wire Fest in Chicago on 9.20, which was the last stop on their tour, this time performing with the likes of Jandek and John McEntire.The Pitchfork peeps really like Joe - here’s the best quote:

Chatham addressed his young players with the intensive stare of a conductor, keeping time with strums on his own guitar rather than a baton. And his drummer (pitcured above) positively killed 

What I want to know, is if Joe’s been killing people in Chicago, shouldn’t someone stop him? I mean, yeah, he’s a great drummer. We all know that. But murder? Come on, Joe, you’re not above the law.Check out Joe sweatin’ like a Viking on Pitchfork:
