New Day #358

So there I was, hanging around backstage at Live Wire Radio with some of the other guests like NPR's Ari Shapiro, who is entirely too good looking for radio. Someone asked me to hand them a beer (it's that kind of show) but I couldn't find an opener.

Luckily, there were plenty of musicians around, from the sublime indie bands Blind Pilot and Blue Giant, all of whom seemed to know how to open a beer using a plastic water bottle for leverage.

The constipated expression on my face demonstrates just how difficult I found the task.

I see you have stopped the "buckle on the side" fashion statement.
It is comfortable only if your trousers open on the side, like mine do, but then you have to drop your pants to pee.
Loved the pink wristband.

dude! kevin (from blue giant) totally opened a beer for me using that method! but because i'm not into this whole new thing thing, i just let him do it.

and regarding your post above, it looks like we're living parallel lives. i narrowly missed going to thomas' (though he didn't mention the upcoming agenda; not sure if i regret it or not....), instead choosing to hang out in the lamp and talk about everything and nothing with ryan w and jonathan n and various others....

and yes, ari is too too to be believed!
