FREE MoMA, Earth Fair at Grand Central, Natalie Portman

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I have a bad taste in my mouth from last night, which I’ve narrowed down to extra durrrty martinis or the two double cheeseburgers I ate at 3 am at the Delancey/Essex McDonald’s where a drunk dude in a blazer almost got socked by the on duty Wo-manager for taking a fry out of someone else’s order.  Shit, it was better than the premiere of Beyonce’s Obessed that I went to. Come to think of it, that ‘s probably the bad taste.  Actually, no. It was a terrible movie,  always one punch line away from an extended SNL skit, but it was a good communal vibe because the audience was getting into it.  How could they not? Crazy, young white girl tries to scheme on black man, but runs into a hot wall: the Queen B y’all! It spoke to me.

Anyway, when I have a bad taste in my mouth there are only two things to do.  Buy an orangina or make a deposit into the karma account, depending on the (non)-metaphoric nature of the “taste”.    Today is for the latter.
