Outta This World
Last night was the June mixer. We were originally supposed to have it at Puck Fair but since it was their anniversary celebrations, the bar was mad packed from what I heard, I hadn't even made it to the bar! My cell phone started vibrating madly during dinner with accounts of people getting turned away and so many people that it was spilling out to the front. Long story short, we ended up at Grassroots Tavern, a nice dive like bar on St. Marks. I only say it's dive like because the bathroom was pretty decent. Last night's mixer was the biggest crowd we had in a long time. It was also Bill's last mixer as a New Yorker. A bunch of us chipped in and got him and Laura a gift card to Morton's Steakhouse (with locations in NYC and Chicago-which is where they are going), I made chocolate chip cookies and Alison bought cupcakes from Billy's. Below is our first ever group photo in honor of Bill's departure.
I'll post the scan of the card I made in another post. Here was my mix, also in honor of Bill cuz he's outta this world!
1. Theme From Space Island • !!!
2. Stars All Seem To Weep • Beth Orton
3. Sky Starts Falling • Doves
4. Shooting Star • Elliott Smith
5. Full Of Stars • Turin Brakes
6. The Moon • Cat Power
7. Honey And The Moon • Joseph Arthur
8. When The Stars Go Blue • Ryan Adams
9. Space Ho's • Danger Doom
10. Every Planet We Reach Is Dead • Gorillaz
11. Down With Moonlight • The Rakes
12. If Only The Moon Were Up • Field Music
13. 7 Stars • Apples In Stereo
14. Man In The Moon • Voice of the Beehive
15. No Stars • Figures On A Beach

I lovingly got teased for sewing my cover this month and cutting out stars for my track list. And of course it didn't stop when they learned I made the card for Bill and Laura and baked cookies. HA!
