08/02/2005: "berlin."

Hello from Berlin! I'm all settled in. I have a beautiful apartment in Prenzlauer Berg that costs a third of what I was paying in Brooklyn, and I have an amazing view of the East German planetarium from my bedroom window. Looking out at the massive silver orb makes me feel like I'm living in some retro-futuristic sci-fi flick. I already have my first assignment for the paper; I'm going to be interviewing Chelonis R. Jones from Berlin's mighty Get Physical record label. Chelonis! From Get Physical! Holy shit! "I Don't Know"! "One and One"! I'm not really awake--I didn't sleep much on the plane from New York and I was stranded in Brussels for a few hours waiting for a connection, all in the raw early hours of morning. After passing out for a few hours in my new room, I realized this: I am not in New York anymore. It took a little while for this to sink in.

I think I am going to go to Ostgut this weekend.

And here's a new music blog with lots of people I know in it: Beat Research. I hope they ask me to contribute!

Photos on the way.

PS big congrats on the new job.

PPS how about a chelonis transcript, when it happens? pls ask him who has the best monologues, green velvet or blake baxter? and if he has considered hip-house rapping like fast eddie?
