is the iphone mania reaching an all new high? i'm still shocked to see so much mainstream coverage about the iphone... and making me a wee-bit nervous. Am i really gonna be able to get one on the release day? Shouldn't, uh, true mac fans get theirs first... and do i qualify?
anyway, went to Go Go Curry over the weekend... YUM!
thats a generous pork cutlet, breaded/fried with curry and rice.... i got a "walk" size, and could barely finish. Blaksquirrel got a "single" (all menu items are baseball-related names/sizes). He says its the best in the city... i think so too. It was really spicy (not hot-spicy, but spice-spicy) and yummy with the fresh cabbage, and well-cooked rice!

i used to not like the idea of paris... and all things to do with france, in general. We had family friends from france stay with us for a few summers when i was little, and i was annoyed (teenager + sharing anything = annoyed). but (and this sounds bad) a couple summers ago, i read a book called The DaVinci Code , and i decided that i needed to see this place (and go to Saint Sulpice and look at the "rose line" with my own eyes). It was hot (we went in July) and touristy, but it left a very romantic feeling for paris, that i still haven't been able to shake. Whats really egging me on is a couple of movies for this summer.... Ratatouille, and Paris Je'Taime.

My New York age is 34
This New York age puts you into a middle category between young and old (but not "middle age" per se). Be proud. You've got a nice balance between going out hard-core and staying in. You care about culture but also like some quiet nights. Keep it up, but think about expanding your horizons in the other directions. Head to Studio B or Anthology Film Archives for the first time, or finally check out the Village Vanguard or Elaine's for a dose of old-school NYC.

June 29th can't come fast enough....
I've been trying to work out in my head, what would be the best way to go, strategically speaking. Do i end my current cell phone carrier (virgin mobile) and sign up early for cingular/at&t, have my phone number ported over so the minute i get the phone, i can swap out the sim card and i'll be ready to go? from what Scott Bourne says, it seems like the other companies are expecting a lot of terminating-of-contracts. i'm glad i won't have to deal with that, but then i'll have to deal with an actually phone bill every month (boo!). I guess all of this is in anticipation of actually getting an iphone on the launch day or soon after... that in itself seems so difficult (crazy demand + not a lot of product = riots!!!)
who is going to buy the iphone (according to gizmodo):
Currently feeding my iphone appetite: macbreak weekly, apple phone show, ifoapplestore

got myself "a couple" Le Pens. I picked up one in maine, and i've been wondering where i could get some more. I remember these pens from my childhood... so 80's, kind-of...
anyway, i found this place to get them. NY Central told me they are being dis-continued... not sure if that means the store is not selling them any more, or the company (Marvy) is discontinuing them....

anyway, needless to say, i enjoyed guitar hero (I) a lot better than guitar hero II.... (maybe it's just because GHII is a lot more difficult than GHI, but i really didn't care for most of the songs and i am looking forward to guitar hero III.... especially wireless controllers (what are we gonna do with the ones we have now?) and cherub rock by the smashing pumpkins. I'm not a smashing pumpkins fan... in fact i have somewhat unpleasant memories of that particular album (that's a story for another post)... but i think i would be cool to 'rock out' like James Iha... speaking of, i was hanging out with peelander yellow in front of air market, and guess who walks by.... james iha.. looking like the ultimate rocker-dude-living-in-the-east-village!
which brings me to....
why didn't anyone tell me about this?? huh?
