alex chilton heads for the big star.

sadness.

alex chilton died yesterday in new orleans, of a suspected heart attack.

i originally heard a few big star songs as this mortal coil covers, loving the lyrics, it wasn’t until i started hanging out with james that he told me most songs i love were covers! including siouxsie, fall, and this mortal songs amongst hundreds.

it was probably a good introduction to these songs though, for me, and when i heard the originals i was blown away, especially by “kangaroo” and “holocaust”

alex chilton wrote james’ wedding vows, he used the lyrics to blue moon and read them at our wedding. so sweet.

and then there is this:

best wishes from ING Direct.

wow! i got early birthday wishes from online banking:
Happy Birthday – best wishes to you from ING DIRECT!

i am happy to report that james made it to italia safe and sound and on the ground.

he is with josh and other good buddies so i think it will be doing lots of working but also should have time for some fun times too-which makes me happy. i requested that he eats pizza on friday for my birthday.

maybe he will even find an apperitivo? not sure if they do apperitivo in venice or not but i hope so.

apperitivo is one of the things i miss most about living in italy. every friday evening we would gather @ the local bar (arduino’s) and the crowd would spill out into the street and we would sip and chat and laugh and eat (free) snacks. a lot of IDII students went, and professors and it was also when we got to hang out with the townspeople too. not that my italian was ever very good at all but it just felt really communal and festive, i miss that. i guess i never did ‘happy hour’ here in the states but to me ‘happy hour’ seems shady, but i guess its the closest thing we have to apperitivo. the biggest difference is ‘happy hour’ seems to be just about boozing, apperitivo is more about taking time to relax and talk and enjoy food and drink together. i will be back in italia sometime enjoying my glass of prosecco!

http://vegnj.com/

you can pick restaurant, groceries or organization from the drop down menu, then pick a town in

NJ and then things happen and it spits out a list for you! how nice. for my town i saw one error or out of date bit of info but still its pretty cool. until this i used http://www.happycow.net/ for NJ and for anywhere i traveled to, they have listings for all over the globe.

speaking of round the globe: in the 24 hours james has been in usa, italy and portugal.

sigh.
