    Jim Kimball of Laughing Hyenas / Mule / Jesus Lizard rang me up at the liquor store a few days ago.

    The fat one from Sound Opinions was standing next to me at an Acid Mothers Temple show, last week. I know that there's nothing I could possibly say to convince y'all that I'm telling the truth, but I promise you that I am. It was insane. They played for nearly two hours, and he vanished after maybe 75 minutes.

    I've run into Kurt Vile on the streets of Chicago on two separate occasions. And then I was at a block party in Philadelphia and he showed up. Small world. He ditched his wife and kid to try to pick up some young longhair chick after like an hour.

    Like two weeks later, I was in an emergency room in a Philadelphia hospital and I looked up at the tv and fucking Kurt Vile was playing on Conan O'Brien.

    He was right behind me during Sonic Youth/Guided by Voices like 10 years ago, I did not greet him.

    I saw him standing on the corner of Addison and Ashland while I was in the driving out west probably 12 years ago. I was staring pretty hard, thinking "Is that fucking DeRogatis?" and I think he noticed and began looking very uncomfortable.

    Met the vocalist from Trail of the Dead in a pub that is the closest thing to my flat that is not also a flat. I was pretty stoned and couldn't really keep a conversation going, but I pretended to have heard their music and that I probably wouldn't think it was shit if I did and he poked light fun at my stupid boarding school accent and it was all so very awkward and I just walked off to eat a burger.

    I met Tom Krell a few times on campus. He was a fucking dork. A few years ago I ran into Eddie Vedder and posted that one picture somewhere on this board. Umm, I see David Alexrod every now and then on campus. He's always in dad jeans and is playing fetch with his dog. One time I nodded at him.

    did Axelrod interrupt your nod to start talking over you like he does on his podcast?
