sorry tumblr, i neglected you. i wish my eyes and ears were a camera, capturing every single minute of the last 7 days. starting with a weekend trip to toronto, having the greatest host ever (jason, is there anything better than getting to know a city by bike and playing 45s in the park?), meeting stuart li and christopher cushman (finally in person) who are both part of my geektown project and attending shindig (the only real beach party that is so hot that it doesn’t even need a beach) and footprints (of all the places i’ve been to, this is where people really know how to dance!) and eventually escaping from the city and world pride to an island to end up on a clothing optional beach and get some tan on that pale german face (ok, not only face).
back in detroit on monday/tuesday, having breakfast with kyle hall, meeting cornelius harris, waajeed and T7 at UR and sipping iced coffee with kevin reynolds at the great lakes. you guys think his imitation of derrick or theo is the best? you haven’t seen his KDJ ;)
wednesday morning 6:30 on jefferson ave, hoping for the public bus to come. and seriously, you guys scared the sh!t out of me with your stories about public transport in detroit. it is really not that bad. and it’s cheap. and i’m not getting a cab for ten times of the fee for a bus ticket as long as i can avoid it.
chicago. that’s what i call a perfect day when you had a really short night doing some freelance artwork, sleepwalking to the next record store and finding tom brock in the dollar bin. then you get pampered by your lovely hosts jeannette and derek who know about the best food in town and after your disco nap you go to danny’s tavern because it’s the first wednesday of the month and it’s sheer magic with dante carfagna and jon kirby.
