Whats the track playing while you are talking? Cool playlist, thanks!
  Tue. 12/4/07 12:10am efd:

Hi NYC'r, it's a loop of "Saturday Night Fever" by Lordz of Brooklyn, from around 1993 or so.
thanks for listening/commenting!
  Tue. 12/4/07 12:34am putty:

  Tue. 12/4/07 12:38am efd:

  Tue. 12/4/07 12:52am Jessica:

Checking in for a 5min RAWWWK break betw the regular Mon. eve. screening and dinner. The rest of my world needs to catch up w/the day-early EFD dose, dangit.
  Tue. 12/4/07 1:05am efd:

Let the email alerts of the message board messages to be alerted to by email commence!
  Thu. 12/6/07 12:49pm aharon:

Thanks very much for the Besnard Lakes tix. EFD and FMU. Report on show (not to be all gift-horsey): so-so+. Each song seemed like it was building to greatness, but was in fact just building to another, similar song. They kinda substitute fracture for dynamics. But with that caveat, pretty good.
  Fri. 12/7/07 9:11am efd:

Hey Aharon, thanks for the follow-up report! Glad you had the chance to check them out even if it turned out to be not exactly your cup of tea.
