January 30, 2011 - new york concerts & food
greetings from new york. i’m here for a couple months. in january i was subletting a place called “TOTAL EXISTENCE.” my lease there ran out and now I’m staying at a little flat in the west village called ‘RAPID ARTICULATION AND SENSE CLARITY.’ pat martino bought it in the 70s but he’s considering selling it to me. it’s a “buyer’s market” for rapid articulation these days, and stock in sense clarity is only slightly higher.
we’re having a busy start to 2011 so far. towards the beginning of the month i joined Wounded Animal Solutions, a new consulting firm. We’ve just taken on our first few clients. Please contact us if you are interested in one of our services - assuming that, in fact, you are a wounded animal. It’s that time of year anyway…
