Hello Brooklyn

When I say "Hello Brooklyn," in my mind, I hear some Beastie Boys beats immediately drop afterward

I got here to New York yesterday and it's been go! go! go! ever since.

This is why I live in Ohio because otherwise I'd be dead from sheer exhaustion.

Heck, I should be sleeping now.

Last night? The Long Count opened, which is part of the reason I'm here. I had no idea what to expect from this visual and musical collaboration and I found it to be weird and wonderful and exhilarating. I'm not good with words, Brooklyn Vegan puts them together real good (and has a sample MP3) as bonus.

Today? Woke up way early and made it down to the chock-full-of-awesome-people Studio 612a where I finally, after years of online fawning, met The Swiss Miss live and in person.

First words? "Oh my you're tall!"

A bit of chat, gushing, 30 questions, some of the most excellent coffee one can make without a barista on hand, then it was time to get down to survey the possibilities with FictiveKin.

Not sure exactly what will be packed in the next few days, but I am reminded that any trip to New York is too short.

Current music: The Long Count "Bull Run" (featuring Kelley Deal)

There really is nothing like NYCizzle. Wait, noboday says that (except me). This post makes me want to go back to NYC and shoot tons of photos again.

I heard some Beastie beats after reading your headline, too.

So, we had a talk with Brooklyn, and we are all ok with slowing down a little bit for you to consider moving here, maybe? Brooklyn needs a ChrisGlass.

Please tell Swissmiss that your decidedly un-designery friend is a huge fan of her website. And have a slice for me. Oh! And take mini-van cabs in case you are on "Cash Cab"!

Wow, you're making me homesick.
