A Night at the Museum, Pt.2

Posted on Feb 3rd, 2008 by A-Trak

It’s a complete coincidence that Kid Sister and I were booked to perform at New York and LA’s Museums of Natural History on consecutive weekends. The events were unrelated, we’re not on a museum tour or anything.

Both turned out to be awesome in their own way. You already saw what the New York one was like last week… Kiiiinda crazy, with the surprise appearance of a fur-clad Kanyeezy. That one was in the planetarium, so it was very much a multi-media themed room. The LA show this weekend was a lot more like what you’d expect to see in a museum of natural history: a giant dinosaur skeleton when you walk in and a bunch of displays of impeccably preserved yaks, bisons, sea lions (those things are big!) and other cuddly creatures in simulated home habitat backdrops. How many times did I yell “stegosaurus!” on the mic during my set? One may never know. Read More

Mack Mittens and Ms. Sister share a chuckle about tight jeans

Imagine Allen Iverson running up the Rocky art museum steps wearing Will Smith’s Speed Racer shirt from the “Summertime” video, multiply it by a million and this will still be more awesome-er…

“OK… (take a breath) Everyone who is poor and who doesn’t have a DUI on their record best ta LISTEN UP! Every last one of y’all should know about and participate IN car sharing! It’s the best thing that’s ever happened ever in life. Instead of lugging all your heavy laundry around town through snow drifts in sub zero weather in a 90 year old babushka lady cart you can now DRIVE it to the laundromat in record time and have time left over to shop or eat or drive to your man’s house across town! No more bus stops! No more frostbite! No more devonte!!! YAY!”

Check Chicago’s sweetheart bigging up car sharing over on the MuchMusic Blog. More Canadian KS action from her recent shows in these photos and this EYE Weekly interview. The JOTS dudes promise some video from the shows soon…
