The title of this post refers to the food I had from Green Papaya yesterday that I ordered, as I usually do, “Thai hot.” It’s good. If you haven’t been there yet, I encourage you to go.
Local CBS affiliate WAKA (channel 8 ) ran a story featuring Chad Baker, a musician known for bands such as El Chupa Cobras (among others) and the label Acerbic Noise Development. The story, however, was not about his music, but about his volunteer efforts after the late April tornado outbreak in Alabama. You can read about it and see the video here.
Earlier this week, Graveface Records began mailing out the “Middle States” vinyl EP from The Appleseed Cast, and my copy arrived in the mail yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it on the format it was meant for yet, but I’ve heard the mp3 version, and it’s really good, containing lots of noise, which if you didn’t know, can be a good thing (and in this case, is awesome.)
Like other Graveface releases I have purchased, they included random items in the box including a couple of posters, an orange Pixy Stix (which sounds plural because of its proper noun spelling, but is not in this case), some puzzle pieces, a connect-the-dots page from an old school activity book, a math card like the ones you probably had in elementary school and a page from a Bill Clinton book beginning a chapter on Kosovo, Columbine and Kashmir.
If you are looking for something to do this weekend, read Wednesday’s post on this blog about some hometown music events.
Oh… and follow me on Twitter. Thanks for reading!
