Week in review

Last week was a busy one here in AlexLand. Well, not really, but I don’t get out much.

I started physical therapy for a ridiculous back pain I’ve had for a month, so wish me luck for a speedy recovery. So far so good, and I get to window shop on the way home! Speaking of which, I saw the coolest shorts at Hugo Boss. I can’t find a picture of them anywhere online, but they’re super-high-waisted, gold shorts, and they unzip around the waist/hip area so you can wear the high-waisted bit as a corset/belt over a shirt w/ jeans. It’s awesome, but I don’t really look good in shorts, so I don’t think I’ll be purchasing said item.

On Wednesday a friend and I went to Bowery Ballroom to see MGMT and Yeasayer. mgmtWhat an awesome show! MGMT were good but they’re not the greatest live performers. And they’re so young and cute! They look like they’re about 16, but I guess they’re in their early 20’s. It’s questionable as to whether or not the lead singer has gone through puberty yet.
yeaAnd Yeasayer was incredible. They were fun to watch and their music is funky & ecclectic. It was totally worth the $13 I paid.

Over the weekend we went to a fab new sushi place on the UWS called Momoya where I had a delish seaweed/cucumber salad. Then we saw No Country For Old Men. I highly recommend this flick. It’s adapted from a Cormack McCarthy book, and directed by the Coen brothers (I love those guys). Javier Bardem is scary good, as are Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin (who I’ll always remember from one of my fave 80’s movies: Thrashin’)

    I hope you feel better!! I love high waisted things, but for some reason they look awful on me. 😛 I love MGMT, and sushi, too. (:

    Yeah, her name is Hera. She’s Icelandic via New Zealand. She’s had to compete with Bjork for a while, so she’s not as popular. I like her a lot though, lol. Her voice is new and different.

    The books are pretty good so far. I’m on Envy (#2) and it’s wonderfully steamy so far. =D

    Ouch. You need a good masseuse. Lol.

  5. oooh, I have been wanting to go to Momoya, it looks so chich and fun everytime I walk by. Did you have sushi there as well? We went to Kouzan recently, its by the people who do Yuki Sushi, which is my fave sushi place on the UWS. It was quite yummy.
