TV on the Radio @ the Bowery Ballroom

TV on the Radio have never really been known for putting on great live shows. Of the seven or eight times I have seen them it has always been pretty average. I headed down to the Bowery Ballroom last night to catch their tour opener with Celebration. On my way to the show I was thinking to myself "if the show is just o.k, it may be a long time until I see TV on the Radio again." Perhaps it was this state of mind that made last nights concert so great. I expected so little and got so much. TV on the Radio hour long set was great. They have radically improved on their live show. The energy level in the Bowery Ballroom was off the charts. Everyone was dancing and clapping along. The band played a number of new songs from their up coming album which features David Bowie. Bowie was in attendance but never took the stage. All the new songs sounded great as did old songs like "Dreams" and "Ambulance". Last night's show will definitely make it hard to pass up the next time TV on the Radio play NYC.

Great photos! (You must have been rubbing elbows with "Wayne's World's" Garth.) I was in the balcony and was thoroughly blown away. & you're right about the energy; I've never seen a Bowery crowd so electrified in their demands for encore. What a terrific show. I dip my oar in at

Great summary, I enjoyed the show too, it was my first time seeing them live. Rumor has it the "drunk tool" was actually mentally challenged. I thought Celebration was better live then on their album.

$200 Bucks It Is...
A guy goes over to his friend's house, rings the bell, and the wife answers.

" Hi, is Tony home?"

" No, he went to the store."

"Well, you mind if I wait?"

" No, come in."
They sit down and the friend says "You know Nora, you have the greatest breasts I have ever seen. I'd give you a hundred bucks if I could just see one."

Nora thinks about this for a second and figures what the hell - a hundred bucks. She opens her robe and shows one. He promptly thanks her and throws a hundred bucks on the table.

They sit there a while longer and Chris says "They are so beautiful I've got to see the both of them. I'll give you another hundred bucks if I could just see the both of them together."

Nora thinks about this and thinks what the hell, opens her robe, and gives Chris a nice long look. Chris thanks her, throws another hundred bucks on the table, and then says he can't wait any longer and leaves.

A while later Tony arrives home and his wife says "You know, your weird friend Chris came over. "

Tony thinks about this for a second and says "Well did he drop off the 200 bucks he owes me?"

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this[url=""].[/url] Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis[url=""],[/url] describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out[url=""].[/url] I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest[url=""],[/url] lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor[url=""].[/url] A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over[url=""].[/url] I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write[url=""].[/url] A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
