doppelganger (14k image)I went to Philly this weekend with Emily for a wedding and to see John perform with the Dumpsta Players.

The wedding was a wedding. It was in a Catholic church. A Roman Catholic church. I dont think I like their ways. They seem pretty homophomic. And their services are way too long. Plus that kneeling thing has got to go. Talk about being domineered by god. That shit is S&M.

The reception was nice. It was in some art gallery. The appetizers were tasty. We started talking with some girl from Cookeville, TN. She was totally this girl I dated from TN’s doppelganger. Either that or her older sister. I was all rico suave with her trying to figure out her last name. (looking over her shoulder when she was looking at her table placement card, etc) But it wasnt the same name and she had been living in Philly for 20 years or so and was single. So who knows. Maybe she was divorced and changed her name. I never questioned her if she was related to the said ex-girlfriend or not. I’ll never know. God it pains me. But not really.

We sat at a table with some cool people. A few of Karen’s co-workers were there and we talked about radio and music and Grandmaster Flash. The people to our right talked about lactose intolerance and people who eat a lot of meat. I think it was the most I ever talked at a wedding where I didnt know anybody. Oh yeah, and I got suckered in to dancing two a few songs. I still dont get wedding dancing. It’s like the mp3 of audio formats.

Saturday we walked around Philly after having a nice breakfast at the B&B. We hit up the ICA and checked out Patti Smith’s exhibit. It was pretty cool to know she did this. I love that woman and her photography.

We hooked up with John later on in the night for a night of the Dumpsta Players. I have been trying to see his group perform for ages. Basically since I worked at Discovery Channel. I guess three years now. And since they normally do their shows during the week, I never got to see it. Except one of their friends just got some degree that was large and they threw a party for her, so the Players performed on a weekend. I’d like to think it was just cos I came. Then after we headed out to a bar where they played a lot of 80s dance music. Perhaps it was 80’s night. It was pretty fun even though I am not a dancer, nor want to be. It was just fun watching all of the Players get their groove on. Oh snap! And there was this older man, maybe in his 50s or 60s who was all decked out and had this awful wig on and was all dancing like Larry from Leisure Suit Larry. He was also dancing with some asian boy in a tank top who was prolly 1/4th Larry’s age. Anyways. It was a great weekend and it was awesome seeing John and it was awesome taking all those cabs. And it was awesome to learn that Philly at least has some semblance of a transit system. It’s not the “T” or Metro. But it’s something with character.

I took pictures.

thanks heidi
