public enemies

this movie is amazing. go see it.

i'm proud to be an american, where at least i know i'm free...

we had a good 4th, mip, hadz, and i. we ate a late breakfast of doughnuts and smoothies. then we went and rowed boats on the pond by the bethesda fountain in central park.

after an afternoon of wandering around and drinking jamba juice, we ate at cowgirl. it was some good food, but mostly i like the patriotic taxidermy.

then we went to hadz's office on the 33rd floor to watch the macy's fireworks on the hudson. it was a perfect view.

jonathan richman

zack has long been into the music of jonathan richman, the lead singer of the modern lovers. a couple weeks ago we had to good fortune to see him live at the bowery ballroom for only $15. i have always appreciated his music, whenever zack has put it on, but something often happens to me when i see someone live (especially if they're good, and he was amazing). i find myself with a new respect and a deep love for the music. he is so talented and was so gracious. so with that being said, you should listen to jonathan richman.

p.s. for all of you in utah, he's playing at kilby court tonight. it will be amazing, i'll tell you that right now. go, for heaven's sake. go.
