New York in May: skyscraping, vertiginous, Momuthonic!

New York is a gorgeous skyscraping janglerush, and I'm back, staying this time on the 30th floor of a building on the Upper East Side. Throughout May I have a ton of stuff going on in the city and vicinity. It starts with a two week art performance in Chelsea, continues with four "Momuthon" concerts -- three-hour long live surveys of my entire music career -- and ends with an evening of readings from my two forthcoming books (The Book of Scotlands and The Book of Jokes) in the company of Lord Whimsy and Rusty Santos. The details are under the skyscrapers (and yes, it is all a bit vertigo-inducing).

petit depression

the room looks rather depressing but with a skyline like that what do you need an interior for? did you try the rubic cube?

Re: petit depression

Well, I'm going to be out most of the time.

I'm lousy at Rubic Cube. My brother can apparently solve it in, like, ten twists. According to my nephew, anyway.

hahaha. momus, i'm unsure if this is the point, but you look slightly like a kewpie doll. bi-gender in that babyish way, it's in the way you stand and the little flash of belly with the slightly ill fitting/over-tumble-dry-ed semi cap sleeve stretch tee .
i wonder what meals you'll have in NY?

Starr Space is a nice one! We just threw a party there a couple of weeks ago. Good people and a nice vibe (it's a yoga studio by day).

Will definitely put it on my calendar. Looking forward to meeting both you and Lord Whimsy!

America awaits with fear and trembling, the return of her once and future king.




Hey momus, do me a favor when you are in New York. If you bump into anybody I know, say "excuse me," OK?

It's not impossible, but it would take some kind of extra incentive like an art show or something.

By jove and get a grip -- how crushingly gushing you all are!

Momus and Lord what's his face are net narcissists, frenziedly updating their own Wiki pages, posting endless pictures of themselves just sitting or standing hirsutely in their houses.

They are probably very nice people in person, modest and kind family people, but their attention-seeking online is tedious, and your fawning embarassing.

I don't disagree that Whimsy and I are net narcissists -- though we prefer Thomas de Zengotita's term "self-mediators". But for the record I've never touched my Wikipedia page, because that's a slippery slope to control freak hell. For about six months my Wiki said I'd dabbled in transgender surgery (Microworlds put that in as a joke) and I just left it there. Wikipedia is meant to be a self-correcting system, and it did self-correct. Eventually.

that skyscraper

you're staying in the same building that my parent's live in. i'd actually love to read your take on skyscraper living there, the social interactions in the elevators in that building, etc. also, check out the bike room if haven't already.

ask for the key at the front desk. go through the door in the back (south side) of the hall of elevators, then take an immediate right through the second door and there are two rooms full of bikes.

of course, i've got my own in there but you might be able to fill up the tires on an old one and go for a lap around the park.

Re: that skyscraper

i'm afraid that might have sounded obnoxious...you can take my bike out too if you want. you'd just have to get the key from my parents.
