This was the most depressing week of my life. I should’ve just dug in and got it over with in like a day. God it’s an amazing story but wow is it ever brutal.
Somehow I think it’s important to know how things really went down with the whole independence from England thing and this book seems to have the greatest number of personal letters and memoirs as well as a conservative writer who stays out of his own way and lets you just get way inside this beast.
I hugely recommend it but try to get it over with as quickly as possible cuz knowing how it ends doesn’t really help.
Hark! A video from Corona Capital last Saturday in Mexico City. Check out “Mohammed” and “Shakin” in HD, which is almost better than being there in person, I say.
Last spring The Dandy Warhols kicked off the celebration of the thirteenth anniversary of their watershed album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia by performing each of the album’s thirteen tracks in thirteen different locations around downtown Portland. These stripped down guerrilla street performances were filmed for posterity by Into The Woods and will premiere Sunday, October 27th at the Hollywood Theater in NE Portland.
The evening is set to begin with acoustic performances of Dandys tunes by friends of the band featuring:
Dave of Dave’s Killer Bread, Mike Allred of Madman Comics fame, Rick Bain of Rick Bain and the Genius Position, Nigel Ledgerwood of 1776 Jsun Adams of The Upsidedown, Megan Pickerel & Herman Jolly of Buzzyshyface, and Highway.
Followed by the video premiere
Finishing with a Q&A session with The Dandy Warhols.
Plus: do you have a favorite Dandys song? You could perform it on-stage at the event in front of Courtney and Zia and Peter and everyone. Record your cover ‘demo’ and post it on our Facebook timeline and tag it #TheDandyWarholsCoverOK. If it’s the best cover ever, we’ll put you on stage!

Your copy-and-paste lord,
1. I found this trip to Mexico City to be very inspiring. I noticed these projects were so clean and white punctuated with those classic festive Mexican colors. I’ve drunk rivers of tequila to those colors.
2. Modern Mexican art. Aw dontcha just love the little guy. I do.
3. This poster was in the hotel complex elevator. Ew.
