October 8

Wasn't it just yesterday that it was 90+ degrees here in NYC. And now I am looking for a new jacket on Ebay for the upcoming cold? Is anyone else addicted to Ebay as much as I am? Are there therapy sessions you can go to that I don't know about?

I love fall in New York City. I think I will probably plan every future tour that we do so that I can be in the city during this time. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler and people are starting to pull out those scarves they have had hidden away for the summer. It is so much easier to be fashionable this time of year. In winter everyone is so layered you have no idea what they are wearing and summer is quite the opposite. It's so hot you literally want to wear nothing. Thank goodness we have laws here against that! For some people that is.

Yesterday I went to lunch with my friend and marketing guru for runaway dorothy Jerllin. We ate at this cool little spot down near NYU that was really good, DOJO. I had never eaten there in all my years of living here. I highly recommend especially for their vegetarian choices and cheap prices. We discussed some cool little things we have planned for RD over the next few months. Namely we are allowing our CD to be purchased through digital download at a 'set your own' price. I like how radiohead did this with their album 'In Rainbows' and want to model ours in the same way. This should get under way quite soon and will run until we end our tour here in New York City on Dec 6.

We also talked about the two videos we have under way. We are shooting videos for our songs Abilene, and Takes a Lot of Love. These are top secret projects so I can't go into much, but you won't be disappointed I promise you that.

Finally, did anyone watch the debates last night? Was it just me or was anyone able to watch more than thirty minutes of it? I went out to an Irish bar down the in the east village called Lunasa to visit my friend Dominico who was bartending and I knew he would have the debates on. I thought it my civic duty to be interested in the state of our nation and watch them, but honestly after about 20 or so minutes of question dodging and run-around answers I could stomach no more. Was anyone else completely annoyed? When are we gonna get a strong Indie Canditate? I mean we have Indie rockers with no budgets that are every bit as good as major label bands. Doesn't it stand to reason we could have an Indie President? Just a thought....
