Sorry for the lack of updates this week folks. In case you were wondering, no, I did not make it to NYC for the R.E.M. tribute. Normally, I’d probably be complaining about it by now. But I currently have better things to complain about.
Like the fact that I’ve been 2 ounces of Gatorade away from the hospital and an iv this week. Got sick on Tuesday, am currently typing this from a cot on my floor today. Needless to say, maybe it’s a good thing it didn’t work out this time. That said, reports are coming in about the awesome night and everyone seems to agree that it was something special. I managed to sit up for a few minutes last night and catch some updates from ethank via twitter.
Amazing video of Glen Hansard doing “Hairshirt”
From remhq, Patti Smith and R.E.M.
Rolling Stone was impressed too.
Paste gives the best overveiw.
And Spinner throws in their two cents.
Maybe next time I’ll be able to join in. I did get to spend my night in the dark, listening to New Adventures in Hi-Fi though. No comparison but it made me feel a bit better.
See ya on Monday
