Jesse Sandoval, ex-drummer of the Shins recently opened a New Mexican themed taco cart in downtown Portland called Nuevo Mexico and Vendr.tv did an interview with him that you can watch here. Jesse’s food looks delicious, and there’s a surprise visit from Marty Crandall in the video. Read more about Nuevo Mexico here and on the official website. (The official one doesn’t have anything on it yet, presumably because Jesse’s too busy making sopapillas.)
The only thing that I remember from my high school graduation is what I wore. I had a hand painted Misfits t-shirt, torn jeans and combat boots. And I refused to smile when I got my graduation certificate—not because I wanted to look like a bad ass, I just didn’t want people to see that I was a punk rocker with braces. I remember thinking that my parents wouldn’t be too pleased with any of it and that was a good thing.
If I had graduated with the seniors at Lexington High School this year, I think I would have remembered a whole lot more. They asked Eugene Mirman to give the commencement speech at their graduation. Check it out!
He includes such invaluable advice as: “Don’t get too excited when you read The Fountainhead.”
Ya’ll Seattle folks see those thongs thrown on stage at Handsome Furs? That was me and Hardly Art’s own Nick Heliotis having a grand ol’ time at Neumos on Friday! What a show! If you haven’t been able to catch the duo on their current tour, you should check out their fabulous in-studio with KEXP tomorrow at NOON PST right here.
No Age’s Randy Randall partnered with the Director’s Bureau to create a new video for Mika Miko’s “I Got A Lot” and it’s pretty killer. Check here to see it, and make sure to post more comments about there not being enough, ahem, “titties” in the video. God, I hate the internet.
