Here in Nashville

Kristin and I have moved to Nashville - here we are. We leased an apartment sight-unseen, and I am (still) currently unemployed. And we have to buy a LOT of things. We got lots of nice big things as wedding presents, but we're missing a lot of little things. For example, we don't have a scissors anywhere in the apartment. We don't have a flashlight, a hammer, bath towels, shower curtain rings, tupperware ("more necessary than you would think" - Kristin), enough kitchen shelves, a bed... etc. On the upside, we do have some really incredibly cool and necessary items such as a really nice set of knives (thanks mom and dad), an espresso machine (again, thanks mom and dad), a reallly nice coffee maker (along with some really nice coffee - thanks greenville girls), some very worthwhile 1950's sci-fi movie posters (featuring none other than the poster to "Attack of the 50 ft Woman" - thanks Kate. You're right. We probably ARE the only two people who can fully appreciate that gift), really nice cookware, and a wok. Anyway, the place is pretty small. My studio is once again in a closet - I need a table before I can set it up though. Any box we have to store is fewer cubic feet I have in my studio. We have to buy some kind of other shelf thing for our kitchen because there is really barely any shelving space. But its in a really nice location. Its a block from a large grocery store and a pretty well-stocked hardware store. Its about one mile to Kristin's building at school, and about 50 ft from a bus stop that goes straight to her building's door. In between the school and our little place is a little used bookstore - probably Nashville's best, a really really cool unpretentious high-end guitar store with actually pretty good prices and a good selection of vintage instruments as well - not that I can afford it anyway, but still... A panera (where I am sitting right now enjoying free internet, free pizza, and free iced tea - good deal), a trendy cute little taco place (think mini qdoba with a chicago hotdog stand attitude rather than t-bell), and.. well I guess that's about it. A little ways down the road the other direction is a small but nice mall with a dillards and a macy's. there is a target nearby, where we recently dropped $250 on little tchotsch. Anyway, that about wraps it up for now. I'm on my PDA and I don't have pictures yet so you'll have to wait until later for that. OH and i'm about 100% sure my webhost ( disappeared. Like they vanished. And with them, my website. So I'm currently in the market for good cheap hosting with PHP, MySQL support. If anyone has any suggestions, please send them to MatthewCGood - at - Oh yeah -I almost forgot. My mailing address is: Matthew Good 2014 Linden Ave #9 Nashville, TN 37212 I'm pretty sure that's right anyway. I'll post a correction if its wrong. Love you all.

wow slackhost vanished, maybe that is why my uncle was trying to get a hold of me... glad I switched hosts before that happened! I don't have stuff backed up...

i'm at which was Stereogum's host before they went to Mediatemple. Mediatemple is cool too but a little more expensive than Tigertech. When I was all about the design scene, every big site was hosted on Mediatemple. It got to be a status thing. But yeah Tigertech is awesome and comes with free private domain registration (try to whois kordix and see for yourself)

But holy cow, if I were going to get hosting now, I might go with Dreamhost their plans are insane, but they are slightly more expensive than TigerTech and have a setup fee.

OH, and since you currently don't have, what email address should I send a certain special treat to?

DK, the email is in the blog post, near the bottom... I hid the 'at' sign so hopefully no bots will eat it.

DK, the email's near the very bottom of the blog post. Hidden so bots won't munch it, i hope.
