I have to tell you—the burgers at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park are probably some of the best in the city. And they taste even better when you're lunching in the sunshine of a perfect spring day with, I don't know, say, Jonathan Coulton. Thanks to my friend E for arranging this outing. We had quite the lovely time—laughing, sharing stories, dodging some bold-ass birds swooping down to grab our lunch. And thanks to JoCo for waiting in that horrendous line before we arrived so we could score those burgers a lot faster. Rockstars as admins, who knew?
Also? Take everything you know about Coulton and multiply it by like a thousand times. He's that awesome, in every way. Seriously.
Documentation, thanks to E:
I know this is a highly obvious choice of song here, but let's face it—we love this tune. Coulton with "Re: Your Brains" in concert at PAX 2007, playing to a very enthusiastic audience.
This. Just in!
At Coulton's site, he posted Please Do Not Get Arrested in honor of May 1st. From "Best. Concert. Ever." is a little gift of an mp3. You know it. You love it. You can't play it at work. First of May.
