Photo: UT. haven’t seen this variety of hipsters yet. Perhaps they were extinct a long while ago.



Today I had my third waking up in NYC. Lots of things happened over those four days. I’m getting less and less terrified to be here despite never being free from the feeling of being threatened for the financial reason. Thank Craig and my lucky star, I finally scored a reasonably priced (by NYC standard) room that’s coveniently located near Dekalb Avenue station in Bushwick. I thought it would be impossible for me to rent a room off Craigslist. * Do the math: A Korean + A tourist; They simply don’t reply back. In time, I became wise enough to obscure my ethincity and status, simply referring to me as “A tourist”. I gather that’s the tactic that worked a miracle for me. So no more passive racist aggressions to go through – Well, some may be lurking around the nooks and crannies of my American life. But fuck them all anyways !!!

In other words, I don’t have to lodge in this congested Korean guest house in Bushwick as of 6/12 (actually, this place is quite alright but expensive) but I’m still very anxious to land a dishwasher position or whatever SSN-free job. Rent is rocketing high but if I keep eating less and in, the cost of living in NYC shouldn’t be lethal. I haven’t seen any shows yet, not that I eagerly want to see any. In NYC, watching people seems to be more entertaining than going to shows. Besides, by my reckoning,  there hasn’t been any decent show recently. But a weekend always has some for sure. Originally I marked 6/1o of the calendar in my mind as Endless Boogie/Purling Hiss @ Death By Audio day (and it’s for just $7 !!!). But varaibles came into play as time passed by. I went and roamed about Bedford Avenue alone yesterday, and I think I saw a flyer that advertised a MV Carbon 6/10 show at Secret Project Robot. Maybe it was last year’s since I couldn’t find anything about it on the internet. But instead…. I happened upon this:


Friday June 10th, 2011 – Opening nite party at LIVE WITH ANIMALS 
Garbage River (featuring Timmy Vulgar & Jimbo Easter)
+ special guest: Sightings
DJ Acapulco Rodriguez (been curious as to what he looks like)


Sounds very termbo but looks very billyburg hipster-ish. This show isn’t even on Ohmyrockness and termbo. So they must like it rather private. Outliers like myself might be unwelcome. But holy crap, Sightings !!! How many years I’ve been sighing for their live shows !!! However, I have likely the most important game going on: Getting laid. The story is, on Wednesday night, more or less bored, nothing to do, I headed for a bar in Williamsburg to drink a plastic cup of 32 oz 4$ budlight, on my own (natch). I lucked into an American girl at this bar and we ended up making out heavily but to my chagrin I was prohibited from putting a full ejaculatory stop by the girl herself who cornered me in the first place (You know, I’m a fucking nerd. Passive. Defensive. I don’t have a way with girls).  But that’s not the end of the story. I believe, we agreed to hang out on Friday which is Today. I want to do her badly. If I succeed, that will be my first lay in like forever (I shift the blame on those prudent, demanding Korean girls who are prone to becoming disarmed and docile in the presence of moderately good looking White males). I have to follow whatever direction my dick swings until she flakes on me, and in my vivacious world of imagination, I’m already bedding with her. Since I don’t make her out to be a hipster, it won’t be a good idea to go one of these two shows together. In any case, today is gonna be a blast. I think I even have an option of bringing  my Korean friend (Sorry Areum, you know this is not the way I am… I am just…) to this show – well, I’m obviously tilted toward the Sightings show, in the event that I’m spurned by the girl in question.

And you fucking NY hipsters and music nerds, please don’t give me such uncomfortable looks even if you spot me at your favourite clannish hang-out. I just want to enjoy music in the flesh. Well, maybe that’s not all.

    It’s really funny whenever I think of this. Are there possibly any Korean people who are able to discern what you wrote at once? I mean no disrespect to those since I also couldn’t get full understanding without googling. Though I know you are, of course, not blogging for Korean nerds (me either), now and then, a lot more violent than The Economist. I mean, the most creative material to study English between formal and not so formal, in my humble opinion. Well, anyways, I am just another innocent lurker of your blog and just good to know that you finally got to NYC where you’re desperately eager to set foot in. Be good. (and you’re right, nothing more important than that.)

      Thank you for this comment. Today I crippled my notebook by absent mindedly tapping keyboard with wet hands. It costed me 130$, and aggrandized my woes and worries and insecurity of being here…by insulating me from the world – I mean the internet. I’m using my guest housemate’s notebook… sometimes Korean people are the best people in the world! and so I’m a bit relieved now…but again 130 dollars.. holy clusterfuck. Add injury to insult, I got harrassed by NYPD – got caught by the meanest and scariest N-word I ever met and hauled over to the police car and badly interrogated by front of the venue/gallery I went to see my long time favourite band playing a show for free.. I’m in a Harsh and Debodying state.\\.(fuck…I really feel like a ghost)…But much better than do a 4$ an hour job in Korea…. ..more like trying to die American than setting foot in NYC….. I think I’m being made the greatest poet in the human history by all this marginal existence with almost no straw to hold onto.. ..but without any glory and laudation.. …..I’m a bonafide misfit and outcast. And It really sucks to be so.
