New York Shows (August 24-25-26)
Dudes,

Jeff and I are playing some shows in NYC later this month. They came about because we both felt like it might be nice to take a vacation and then the first show came up and then one thing led to another and here we are. As far as what the shows will consist of, it's hard to say. At a minimum: acoustic guitar/piano + vocal versions of all your favorite HD classix (well, maybe not *all* of them)... and possibly something even more exciting!

Deets on all three shows Jeff and I are playing in the NYC basin:

Friday, August 24:
The Rejection Show (hosted by Sara Schaefer)
The Ace of Clubs
9 Great Jones St btw Broadway and Lafayette
8pm--$10
We play alongside a few other acts, all doing songs and telling stories about different forms of rejection--artistic, professional, emotional, &c.

Saturday, August 25
Maxwell's
Hoboken
7:30pm EARLY, $8 adv/$10 door
We'll probably be headlining. Guests TBA, but they'll be good.

Sunday, August 26
Mercury Lounge
217 E. Houston St. (corner Ave A & Houston)
$10--We're on at 10. Don't forget to tell them you came for us!

Johnny parsecs measure TIME not distance.

Ok, I am going to risk sounding like a total goddamn nerd here, but really this is my husband's fault because he is the one who told me all this. And I can't explain it properly so I'm just getting this from the Wiki.

The parsec (symbol pc) is a unit of length used in astronomy. The length of the parsec is based on the method of trigonometric parallax, one of the oldest methods for measuring the distances to stars.

The name parsec stands for "parallax of one second of arc", and one parsec is defined to be the distance from the Earth to a star that has a parallax of 1 arcsecond. The actual length of a parsec is approximately 3.086×1016 m, or about 3.262 light-years.

The most famous use (or misuse) is from Star Wars: A New Hope. In the Mos Eisley Cantina, Han Solo refers to the Millennium Falcon as "the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs". It is not clear whether the unit is being used to measure time or distance in this context. However, later novels in this fictional universe attributed this claim to the ability of the Millennium Falcon to reach the planet Kessel in the shortest distance despite having to pass near a very dangerous region of space, The Maw, populated by numerous black holes. This shorter course would require them to cut closer to the black holes of The Maw, implying a higher ship speed to avoid the stronger gravitational forces involved in the route.

oh jesus I need to go do something trendy and take a shower or ugh, god I feel awful for even knowing that stuff

I knew the parsec thing, only because I am a HUGE Star Wars nerd.

But I like to think that makes me cool. 8)

It's okay Jordyn... so long as you leave the chemistry jokes to me.

CAUTION: Over the weekend, a short psychic escaped from police custody.
He is to be considered a small medium at large.

Bah, it's all gravy, I'm probably not going to be able to go anyway. I just got a job, but I won't be able to get a paycheck soon enough to make it happen. Take pictures though!
