DAFT PUNK IN CONCERT = BEAUTIFUL AMAZING EXPERIENCE.
working lollapalooza yesterday was probably one of the best ideas
mari and i have ever had. seriously, i had a walkie talkie, a binder
full of top secret info, a special shirt, maps and schedules, 20 free
download necklaces via itunes. and dude, i got in free with in and out
priveleges. i saw daft punk in my beautiful city in my beautiful park
for free. and it was pretty sweet that lcd soundsystem played
"daft punk is playing at my house" before daft punk went on. it
was pretty darn cute. and after our shift we got really good
sandwiches and found refuge in my grandmother's apartment,
where after eating, we took a dip in her pool before staking out
our spots on the hill for the show. it was so so perfect and the
only money i spent on my perfect day was on my perfect sandwich.
such a good day. i have to work the night shift tonight, and i don't
really have to see anyone today because i missed matt and kim,
but seeing regina spektor and clap your hands say yeah could
be cool. i hope she plays "dusseldorf" but that's probably a stretch.

this morning before brunch we got family portraits taken by MARC HAUSER,
apparently his mom invented pop tarts, fresca, and found orville redenbacher
of orville's popcorn fame (who he did the portrait for that appears on the
popcorn box- see bowtie). this guy was totally great and funny and smokes
cigars and makes us go "YEAH" before he takes each shot. i had an enjoyable
morning, and now i have to lay down for bit. here's some pictures from his
studio/house in bucktown.
