we heart you, indianapolis

we had a wonderful time with some wonderful pimps in Indianapolis last night. played at the Earth House, a re-everythinged-old-church-turned-coffee-establishment-radass-venue. the moody, wallflowers-esque Adrian Kolbo preceeded us and was really refreshingly good. there was a bit of a mishap with Nick L getting to Indy, so we stalled as long as we could; finally he joined us for the last couple songs, including our special Christmas number which we plan to post on youtube =) ....

...but not before this photo was taken!

anyhow check out the Earth House Collective, a rad non-profit organization based in Indy. it was great to meet all of you fine people - hope to be back soon! and a special thanks to our new promoter KGC and to Gavin, the big man.

love and poodles. happy december 13th!

Gigs, or, Jigs, with Walk the Moon

Hey everyone,

It's Nick el L poasting some stuff at you all. We had a really great gig in Columbus at Oldfields on High St., mainly because some dope-ass fools came from all over. We had a Dayton contingent, a Lee Schott contingent, more OWU people, some extra Nicks, and people I had never met, but have met now.

I'm at my old house in the Mt. Auburn/Corryville area of Cincinnati, eating some rice with sauteed garlic, onions, and bananas for breakfast. I'm cut from working at the zoo today, so I am looking at a day of Getting Things Figured Out.

This weekend, I got the Tao of Pooh into the hands of many young folks at Kenyon College, and now my copy is in Someone's Car (I believe Diana's). I recommend it for EVERYONE, especially those of you who I know to be true Bisy Backsons.

I spent much of the night singing this nice little line in my head, and I'm convinced it's from Veckatimest, so I'm listening to the whole album now to find it.

ALSO holler at Neko Case for her 2 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS (for Middle Cyclone as Best Contemporary Folk Album, and for best packaging/art)

holy effing poop!! holy effing effing poop!

ok so i was watching the news the other night con mi familia when they started talking about some orangutan who takes awesome photos. in actuality he just knows that when he presses the button he gets some awesome tasty fruit. big effin deal.

this elephant draws self-mothereffing-portraits.

does no one else think this is FREAKIN ABSURRRD??"?!SEOIWF

google "elephant self portrait" and you'll see a bunch of elephant self-portraits. elephants draw self-portraits did you know that?

so there is skepticism on the issue, naturally, as to whether this is a hoax, etc. etc. etc. according to the debunker of debunkers, it is -not-. apparently they trained the elephants to do this stuff... even still they're painting better than most humans i know can paint. holy poop poops.

there is also research going on that suggests elephants may also have DIALECTS. a language of their own that is below the range of human hearing. uh.

anyway. elephants are menace. 'menace' is like 'fetch'. oh, it'll catch on.
