Why Should You Read This?


I get a “FILTER: Presents…” email in my office InBox every Monday and I like it. And i’ll actually go to some of the suggested events eventhough they tend to be in Brooknon. Today I get one and they’re taking about some MSTRKRFT shindig at the Hiro Ballroom and to email them for tickets. Reading this entry i’m struck by the following request:

…email here with your FULL name, the subject “MSTRKRFT NYC” and why you should be at the show

WHY YOU SHOULD BE AT THE SHOW !? Are you effin’ kidding me. What do they want? Some, “oh i knew them when…” entry. Something with a lot of OMGs. Listen, I want to go. Badly. I’m emailing you aren’t I? Isn’t that enough to display my zeal n’ excitment?

Here was my reply:

TO: ‘RSVPNYC@filtermmm.com’
FROM: [redacted]

Why I Should Be At The Show?

Because since inception, since day one, that day, that October 18th in 1981 at Cedars Sinai Hospital with the Dodgers stumbling through the playoffs and I stumbling through my own travails, at 10:09pm, a night of nights, with the cityscape playing silhouette games through the hospital windows I vowed, then and there, with my mother’s vagina as my witness, that I would never answer such a stupid, lame ass, teenage daughter fuckin’ question as “Why should you be at the show?” Are you serious? Save it for your craigslist postings assholes.

With that said, can I get +1.

Love as always,


I really hope they put me on the list.
