Nothing big to report, but I've got to spread this around - an old interview between Tim Midgett and Tom Kipp about some overly worshipful Sonic Youth book. Tim Cook posted it to some website somewhere. Funny!

That's all for now. The real action starts in September.

Our new record, Lifestyle, is out today. I'm celebrating by taking the day off work, cleaning house, listening to rock music, rearranging my furniture. I think I'm going to see "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeousie" later, though I'm not sure - I may end up drinking in some "hip" bar, the kind of bar where the "rockers" hang out. It's too early to tell. For now, dig it! The new record's out! Go git it! People say it's the best yet. They always say that, I know, but people do seem to like it. I can only trust the purity of their intentions, and feel that you should do the same.

Do you know we're gonna be on tour soon? I'll let you know where everything's happening in the next week or two. We're starting in Minneapolis on the 7th or 8th or so of September, making our way to NYC on the 15th. Then I'm flying home for an important meeting or something. Then in October we're playing in Italy (!) for six nights or so, running from the 8th to the 15th, until yet another crucial meeting forces me to race home on the lone remaining Concorde. Finally, in December, we'll play some West coast shows - four of them, something like that. There will be plenty of notice, I assure you. Part-time rock is the best kinda rock!

Okay, I got to move furniture.

I wanna be the next L'il Kim. Do I have a chance? Do I swear enough? Do I look like her when I go to the mall? Did you know we have an album coming out on August 8th? It's called Lifestyle. Did you know that already? Some people know that. I hadn't mentioned it, I thought I'd bring it up.

Through the miracle of digital technology, you can buy the bastard now. I don't think you'll get it until after the eighth, but shit man! You can buy it now! Don't buy it on ebay from the bastards on ebay, though. They are bad. They are worse than Metallica and Napster combined. Andy's gonna sue ebay for his senior class project, he's gonna sue 'em and he's gonna win.

What else? It's a sunny day, the airplanes are putting across the sky, we're touring in September (midwest & east coast) and in October (Italy!) and in December (west coast), the record will be out soon and everyone's gonna love it. Andy's in London feeling homesick, Tim's breaking rocks for the summer, I'm the same as ever.

More in a few weeks, when the checks start pouring in.

Okay, we played our show in Chicago. It was all drunks & date rapes & rock music, a wierd club but a pretty good show. You can read about it in the tour journal section, as soon as I'm done with it. Dig it!
