I scrolled through my friends list and... in my trash gossip community (well done, high standard trash gossip... uh ... as the standards there go, really) I saw Gogol Bordello mentioned in a post. Okay ... that's odd enough. But then:

Gogol Bordello appearing on David Letterman.

I obviously had a stroke this morning and am actually passed out on the floor of the bathroom, drooling, twitching, lost to the world. That's the only possible explanation.

Five years ago, I saw them at a tiny bar. This month they're playing the Fillmore, one of the biggest and best-known venues and town, and it was sold out instantly. It's very strange, but I am genuinely very happy for their success; it can only be a positive cultural indicator for Gogol Bordello's music to be getting so popular, if you ask me.

I get to see them at the end of the month here in Portland (oh, I moved).

I've wanted to see these guys for a while... YAY!

You and your moving. I would imagine you + Portland = good fit though.

I've honestly had them on the mental "go fucking see them" list since starchy insisted everyone he knew had to go see them years ago. But I've never managed to actually see them. Because I'm a suckass.

yeah -- I'm really really done moving for a while, though...

I decided not to do the nurse practitioner thing and am now going to go to Naturopathy school in Portland. Me gonna be Dr Stinky for reals now. I'm very excited. It'll take about 5 years of med school. Don't worry, I think that most Homeopathy is bullshit, so me no be quack.

hehe. My "doctor" that I see is part of the practice of the actual MD but is actually a nurse practioner. And she's awesome. Naturopathy rocks, but the reassurance that you aren't going to be doing psychic surgery on anyone is good. :)
