Yo La Tengo @ McCarren Pool - Aug 24th (Ryan Muir/Metromix) (LOOK AT IT BIG)
McCarren Pool

today in NYC
* FREE STUFF
* The Game @ Irving Plaza
* Bango Benefit @ Bowery Ballroom
* Billy Idol @ Hammerstein Ballroom
* Rushmore (movie) & bands @ McCarren Pool
* Scribble Jam w/ Junk Science @ Knitting Factory
* long, free sets by Anthony Jeselnik & Kristen Schaal
* Dr. Dog, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson & R Stevie Moore @ MHOW

I think the race is on to see who can play more NYC shows in 2008: Vivian Girls or Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson. It's a tight race.

Speaking of a tight race, Joe Biden and the RIAA = BFF and Madonna thinks McCain is like Hitler.

The above photo is another view of Sunday's final Pool Party.

What else?

there are ways around the RIAA. mostly because the RIAA is ran by untrained monkeys.

vivian girls would play a show in your refridgerator if you asked, i'm sure. they're everywhere. i think they win.

it's crazy the pool was only like a 3rd full for fucking yo la tengo. i don't know how mgmt got famous but i'm betting it won't last long. the hype machine probably will screw them over in the end.

not a 3rd, i mean 3 quarters full.

That looks more than 3/4 full to me. Have you hever heard of capacity laws? People need some room to move too.

Has anyone watched an outdoor movie at McCarren Park? Is it comfortable to watch there? I heard they don't allow lawn chairs... which means sitting on hard concrete (with cement chips and glass shards) on a thin towel? doesn't sound too comfortable if you ask me. thoughts?

3:07, it's not too bad. Not the most comfortable, but there's always plenty of people with picnic blankets making due.

"vivian girls would play a show in your refridgerator if you asked"

But would they play a show in my pants?

on the upside, if obama wins, biden won't be able to vote for any more idiotic record company-sponsored legislation unless it comes to a tie in the Senate.

^^^^
"Biden, by his own admission, has the capacity to fall in love with his own voice and wander off on tangents about his life that have nothing to do with the topic at hand.
During the 2006 confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, the Post's Dana Milbank wrote this of Biden's performance:

"Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., in his first 12 minutes of questioning the nominee, managed to get off only one question. Instead, during his 30-minute round of questioning, Biden spoke about his own Irish American roots, his "Grandfather Finnegan," his son's application to Princeton (he attended the University of Pennsylvania instead, Biden said), a speech the senator gave on the Princeton campus, the fact that Biden is "not a Princeton fan," and his views on the eyeglasses of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).""
