soooooo. i'm here. you know where.
GR invaded this weekend. a friend of mine is in the band still remains... me and car-oh-lyn went and saw him perform. i'm so proud of him/them even though hardcore isn't my thanng. it's just good to know that a friend of yours seems to really enjoy what their doing and succeding at it.
but the michigan connections are so strange out here. i got forwarded a michigander's picnic that is taking place in santa monica at the end of may. hah. funny.
also another thing that happened this weekend was that i was sitting on a bench and out of a crowd of people realized my high school friend that moved to NYC was passing by. i called out his name, it took a minute for him to realize who i was, and then proceeded to tell him i moved out here 2 weeks ago. he was visiting and will probably be moving at the end of the summer. i think that was the best/craziest part of the weekend.
so many michigan people are out here it seems.

i always say, the thing about Grand Rapids in particular - no matter where I go, I always see someone from Grand Rapids. This was just one of the many reasons behind the INTERVIEWS! project

Ben, I totally know what you mean. For instance, just a couple of weeks ago I saw a Calvin College professor wandering around Rome at the same piazza I was enjoying a tall blood orange juice after Mass. Small world.
Just the opposite of NYC, where everyone lives there, but nobody is from there: GR, where everybody is from there, but nobody lives there. (Nobody except the revolution.)
