Losing your lease

In the end, the brain retreats to its animal core, the soul cloaked behind dumb sense. Foreign bodies apply pressure, none too subtle, to squeeze out the life force -- cruel landlords exercising the owner-move-in clause who care not that the building crumbles around them. Arbitration is not an option.


Whoa that was dark.

Gotta get happy brother, listen to that MIA/Diplo thing and whig out.

well, p, it's a sign - guess you're just going to have to move to nyc now.

sorry shit is so rough.

joder. pues, nada: a mi me parece que ya debes regresar a bcn...

Consider not smoking for 5 days, hop a quick flight to LA for $39 bucks, its 'mo sunnier and about 80 degrees right now. SF eats its young, especially its young music critics. Take comfort that though NY may be beckoning, right now you'd be freezing your ass off in a half as big APT with all the clubs and bars closed due to blizzard warning. But if your post is literal, and your landlord is about to become a skumfuck slumlord on some move-in type shit, take a deep breath, you can fight it, or rely on your community of friends to get you to that next place. Word.

Towards the first part of Tomas' post, I got a couch and a sunny veranda that's yers if you want it.

don't leave!

I'm pullling for you and pops Phil. Hang in there.

i hope this doesn't mean what i think it does, philip. best wishes ok?

Send you strength.

Wow...that really sucks. Best of luck to you with finding a new place or something similar. Listen to lots of music! It will help :)

my thoughts are with you...

I've got a whole floor of my house that's not being used, if you need a place temporarily. It's on the east side of russian hill around the corner from the art intstitute. Dan S.

I'm sorry for you even though I don't know you and this is the first time I've been to your site - hope you got to dinosaur park.

hey phil,
i've only ever known you as a writer, but i'd like to offer you my sincerest condolences. good luck and keep your chin up.

I feared that's what this post was about. I know only your words, wish I had some of my own to give to you right now. Thoughts are with you.

Now I know what that post meant...I'm sorry to hear. Always keep the everlasting love in your heart. My thoughts are with you and your family.
