Day Job

28Jul08

Just wanted to give a brief heads up as to why there will be no posts the next few days. I’ll be heading down to NYC for some lovely fieldwork, as, unfortunately, I have a real job. I will try my hardest to catch Sebastien Tellier @ Hiro on Wednesday night, but the days are […]

However, these days you need to wade through lots of garbage to find that pastrami sandwich. […]
