MY NAME IS ______

1303-my-name-is-muhly.jpg

in high school, when i first heard the name and music of

nico muhly

 i immediately hatched the ultimate plan to go to school in new york, find him, and marry him, so that i may be called

molly muhly

. i could have an awesome alliterate name and

it's about time

would have been my jam all day every day. short story shorter it didn't happen, yet i did break my squid-eating virginity with him just the other day. {and

it's about time

was the opening of my senior recital.}

in many ways i am inspired by nico: not just by his music, but also by his use of language in his blog and 

twitter

feed and real life. it's original and gets the point across. he also has bulk amounts of

great

energy. so it's for these reasons that i've made him the first subject of the

manhattanites in march

subsection of the

erybody has to buy

's album

baroque

 which i have some pieces on and which is a very beautiful thing.

am wildly looking forward to

planetarium

at BAM

[this week!].

 we're also doing it in l.a. as part of a

"brooklyn festival"

and i feel like an impostor because i've been to l.a. more times than i've been to brooklyn.

MY NAME IS ______

daniel delaney

was recently named the

king of brisket

, which isn't to say that you should take his word on the

minetta tavern black label burger

 because i disagree and i told him this and he still made me put in writing that it is "mediocre." although now that i think of it maybe i should reinvestigate this claim because when a king of meat gives you an opinion on meat, it probably shouldn't be taken too lightly. 

regardless: he's a boy from new jersey who knows his way around texas-y brisket. and as a girl from illinois who claims she knows about post-minimalism, i'm into it. 

-yeh!

usually when you see someone pee on stage every day for a couple of weeks you're like

oh i'm going to remember that girl as the girl who peed on stage.

but not with

lauren worsham

. her mad singing skillz are mad enough to conquer any sort of pee-related reputation and turn it into a real awesome one. we met during 

dog days

{where she totally killed it} and this week she is performing in an 80s-style

turn of the screw

at

b.a.m.

natti vogel

'

s fun weird songs appeared on the

playlist

for nemo and just last week i met him in person for the first time and nearly had to put my sunglasses on because of the head-to-toe skin-tight shiny gold getup he donned {and of course his shiny personality}. natti sings songs about things like unconditional love, brown rice, and brooklyn. if you're in the city, check out his upcoming shows at

spectrum

 {feb. 20} and at the

bureau of general services-queer division

{feb. 28}.
