Vice capades

So I was walking to the subway after seeing Travis Morrison play a set at the Mercury Lounge (all songs from his upcoming album, all good, although I predict Pitchfork is going to come down hard on him for the easy-reader rhyme of "I need you bad ... it's kind of sad"), and I passed the Essex Street Retail Market. Except the light from the nearby lamppost was casting a shadow in such a way that it appeared to read "Sex Street Tail Market".

That lamppost was placed in that *precise* spot for a *reason*. Otherwise they'd have ordered their dual-use sign in neon, and, y'know, a single streetlight was cheaper.

And more covert.

Oh, man, you saw Travis AGAIN! This imbalance in Travis-seeing between you and me must be redressed!

Did he do any new hiphop covers?

Could you steal that sign for me?

Reminds me of the Rage Warehouse near MIT.

Erin: No new hip-hip covers, alas -- though it's hard for me to complain, because the concert consisted almost entirely of songs I'd never heard before, and I *love* seeing someone I'm a fan of play lots of new material.

Mona: I cannot steal the sign, attached as it is to a brick wall. But I should try to take a picture of it sometime.
