Moving House

Sunset Expanded
Originally uploaded by killerfemme
As most of you know, I recently moved three blocks away from my apartment of five years to my own place in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. This is a view from my fire escape I snapped while I was supposed to be doing homework (the day after I moved I also started my Masters in Public Administration at Baruch College, part-time, yes, I still work too). It's a low, slow process of settling in, but I'm enjoying it and have a penchant for collecting affordable, mid-century modern furniture. There's an ever growing set on flickr documenting the apartment's progress from gutted to liveable to move in to being decorated.

My last Venus Zine Review

Sadly, Venus Zine is going to stop doing live reviews. At least for now. Before they stopped though I got the chance to see Matthew Sweet (you know, that power pop guy from the 1990's) with Susanna Hoffs (from the Bangles!) perform a series of cover songs at City Winery. City Winery is a new venue run by the guy who runs the Knitting Factory. It is definitely for adults who grew up in the scruffy downtown scene and now want a chance to sit down and relax when they see a show with a nice dinner or glass of wine (of course, this makes the ticket prices higher too). I enjoyed the experience, but was glad I didn't have to pay $25 for it! Here's the review with more about the music.
