Evidently, people read these things, so i need to be better about it.
We are in the stretch run and things couldn't be going better. people are coming, people are getting scared, people are leaving (sweating and hyper-ventilating). i look at the house and there are a million things i would do different, but that is always the case. i like its rough around the edges feel, but in years to come i would like to make it a little slicker and a little more durable. that's definitely happening. i feel the ideas are strong, but those ideas have to mesh better with a gazillion people trampling all over it every night. it has definitely held up better than year's past both literally and artistically, so i am happy about that, but it could always be better. much better. i will always strive to do that.
Our reviews have been fantastic. The Times gave us an out-of-the-box review that didn't make much sense, but it seemed like he thought it was disturbing and scary which is what he want (the part he didn't get is why anyone would subject themselves to that - and you know why you do!), The Daily News gave us a wonderful write-up. 5 out of 5 Screams! Time Out also rated us higher than our in-city competitor (not to be named here, but you know who they are. Daily News did the same by the way). So we are very happy.
NPR is doing another feature and I was on Maxim Radio yesterday ("whoa, bro, too much information. ha ha. are the girls hot, dude? awesome brohan i can't wait to go!").
Oddly enough we are going to be on the cover of this week's Next Magazine (a gay rag) and some MTV Network (i think MTV 4 or some shit) is coming to shoot their top 20 countdown from our house tonight and air it on halloween. and did you guys see me on good day new york last week? of course not, you guys aren't awake at 7:30 AM.
So it is going really well. i am going to the house right now to do some beautification of it. You guys are wrecking the crap out of it. but that just means your scared. so we'll fix it and be happy.
