in other news:
the most recent issue of the literary magazine i work for, COLUMBIA: A JOURNAL, was positively reviewed in newpages.com: "...refreshing!" they say. i can't really take much of the credit -- i wasn't on staff until after the issue had gone to press -- other than physically sending them the issue.
more than a few friends in both nyc and sc have been talking about flight of the conchords, "new zealand's 4th most popular digi-folk parody duo". they just recently finished their first season on HBO. i spent 2am-5am last night streaming the first couple shows. pretty good stuff -- a few of the songs are misses, but on the whole, a worthwhile watch. the dialogue is reminiscent of THE OFFICE BBC in its deadpan, intelligence, and funny accent.
allfotc.com is a website where you can stream all the entire first season, along with a well-done documentary on their trip to SXSW and a their original HBO special. to be honest, i don't know how this site is legal, but enjoy it while you can.
a sample, "the most beautiful girl in the room", from the first episode:
an earlier, more live clip, "albi, the racist dragon":
on a side note, i recently saw one the guys, jemaine, (the one who looks like jeff goldblum's beefier western-shirt wearing younger brother) outside of our old practice space in the lower east side, sitting on a bench between two girls. Man, his head is huge.
