A few years ago, I saw these kids play a show at The M Room here in Philly, opening for Ariel Pink on a swealtering muggy summer night. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as it turned out was one of the best live shows I’ve ever experienced. Caroline Polachek and her band were fresh out of Colorado, having moved to NYC to pursue their musical dreams which were about to spark later that fall when their single “Bruises” blew up on an iPod Nano commercial. They absolutely mesmerized the room. It was so clear they had deep wells of untapped power. Ariel was, as you might imagine, completely un-hinged but insanely good and writhing on the grimy floor amongst the audience while he sang.
But I digress. Listen to this single. You’ll see. Watch for this song to drop on Terrible Records in 7” vinyl, and likely more.
Purple: 10 facts about my room. Blue: 9 facts about my family. Green: 8 facts about my body Yellow: 7 facts about my childhood Orange: 6 facts about my home town. Red: 5 facts about my first bestfriend(s). Pink: 4 facts about my parents. White: 3 facts about my personality. Grey: 2 facts about my favourite things Black: 1 fact about the person you like
I just got summoned again (last one was about 12 months ago), but my name is spelled wrong. Am I still obligated?
Am I in trouble for opening mail that was not addressed to me, but to someone that doesn’t exist?
Here’s the harder part, I think I can skip it, but when I log into the juror system online, I have the ability to change my name. But if I skip it, I could get slapped with fines (I already got a warning for skipping my first time, but eventually went in at a later date). What if I change my name online and go in for service and actually get picked to be in a jury, but my name tag still has some other (unliving) persons name on it? Then I get put on trial for conspiracy.
Fuck I have to jury duty on my last week of summer break.
