Long time, no see.

Sorry for the lack of posts. We just came off of a really fun weekend and since we are on tour, its kind of difficult to find the time and the stable wireless connections to "blog-out".

I will start with this weekend:

Pitchfork fest was honestly the single funnest weekend ever. My personal highlights were meeting Clipse (soooo nice...), Hanging out with the Grizzy, Hanging out with Victoria from Beach House. Interviewing Malkmus (soooo nice....), watching 5 minutes of the field before my mouth swelled shut from Chipotle (allergic to avacodos), uhhh.....

Jamie Lidell is Christlike.

One major thing I noticed was how this whole weekend was really upbeat and all about good spirits between everything which is cool. I kind of expected a more competitive ego-centric vibe but that was nowhere to be found.

I always wanted to start a feud with Kevin Barnes from of Montreal. This started with the now-imfamous dis song he wrote about my good friend / sometimes "girlfriend" Eva ("Bunny Aint No Kind of Rider") My plan was to beat him up or at least shank him on stage. I saw him everywhere over the course of the weekend and kind of snarrled at him from across the catering table. He was walking around in the middle of the day wearing blue glitter eyemakeup and asspants. Long story short: we were driving away at the end of the night sunday, and i saw him being interviewed by the pitchfork dudes on video. I ran up and grabbed the mic (thinking i was going to humiliate him on a small level, and look all badass) and asked him "Why are you such a pretentious fucktard?" and he looks at me and says really saddly "Because I havent figured it out yet..."
I walked away feeling like such a fucking asshole. I got served. I told the guys in the van to hold up and ran back over to him after he was interviewed and apologized and explained my feudconcept. He was really cool and nice. Then he came and hung out with us for the rest of the night.

Valet played an awesome show. Then we dj'd little wayne and the cramps.

More later.
