Philly 2nite! NJ 2morrow! NYC in 2 weeks!
I am beyond The Valley of the Tired. I keep thinking about WHY I watched the finale of FLAVOR OF LOVE 2. I was kickin' it with my pal/boss, Ms. Little, and the next thing you know we were watching the whole darn thing! Carol told me that Flav liked to call "New York" (the person, not the city/state) "dramatical." And all I could think was, "Isn't it romantical?"
Wasn't Flavor of Love 2 like watching some kind of train wreck? You sorta know you shouldn't look, but...
My friend Carol cracked me up when we were watching it because she said that he didn't stay with the girl from the first show - so this could just keep going on INDEFINITELY!
I even asked her while we were watching it, WHY do we want to keep watching him? She said, "He's a clown!" And then I said, "Oh, yeah, that's right. That WAS his role in Public Enemy."
She said, "Huh?"
She wasn't familiar with his old band...
Please come on by these upcoming shows! It would be awesome to see youse!

Caught DJ Andrew McPherson eccodek.com opening for Natalie Walker at Joe's Pub...
Andrew was fierce! Supercool, chill mix. Saw lots of head bobbing in the club. Three quarters into the set he sped it up a bit and then back down, which was nice right before Ms. Walker's show.
Man, such a big voice from such a skinny chick! Sorta made me think: Sarah McLachlan meets Bjork... Monica told me that Natalie reminded her of Fiona Apple and Tori Amos... Look out for Walker's new video, "Quicksand" that was filmed last week in Park Slope...
Love and many blessings to you and yours,
