Beatz 'n Rhymz 'n Lame Requestz

Dear Rappers of the World,

Please, I beg of you, stop requesting that I "put my hands in the air like I just don't care." There are only 3 possible outcomes here:

  • I will not put my hands in the air, because I just don't care
  • I will not put my hands in the air, but feel guilty about it
  • I will put my hands in the air, signifying that I most certainly do care, or else I wouldn't be following your instructions
I have never in my life seen anyone throw their hands in the air in order to signify their lack of care. This does not happen.

So stop asking.

Kosher Dumplings & Unkosher Music

I had a beautiful show at Genghis. Thanks to all the lovely folks that came out, listened, bought my new album and just generally reveled in the Jewish Chineseyness of Genghis Cohen.

Here's a pic I took from the stage during the show:

With my supremely talented and supremely kind friends Andrea & Jan Stolpe.

Andrea and Jan went above and beyond the "friend call of duty," as Andrea hocked merchandise and collected cash for me, while Jan chauffeured my car around and roadied my gear offstage, so I could be free to talk to audience members afterwards. I'm grateful to have such awesome friends.

Additional Cuteness

Here are a few more fun moments from my week with Noah: looking in the mirror, playing with hats and practicing our holler. The third and final clip is the cutest thing ever.

Everything In Its Right Place

Sometimes, you see a thing on a shelf. And that thing belongs on another shelf.

Also, toaster pastries are totally fun to play with in their shiny silver wrappers, so that's why the box was empty: they were scattered throughout the room.

Eating & Dancing

Eating is fun and dancing is fun. So why not combine them? That's certainly Noah's philosophy.

You will also see in this video, that he:
  • Loves Regina Spektor (thanks Mom!)
  • Doesn't love a water bottle in his pasta
  • Can totally do that spoon thing himself (no help needed!)
Be sure to stick around, as the dancing gets even better towards the end.

On the Playground

Ah, the sweetie. I had an wonderful time getting to know Noah better. Early in the week, we went to a playground, and I learned that he:

  • enjoys a good jog now and then
  • can be hard to keep up with while enjoying said jog
  • is quite adept at climbing stairs and turning wheels
  • loves observing people (especially girls), and saying "hi" to them in the sweetest voice you'll ever hear
  • enjoys loud rocket balloons
  • is the most adorable thing ever created (oh wait, I already knew that one)

More video coming!
