MY NAME IS ______

in high school, when i first heard the name and music of nico muhly i immediately hatched the ultimate plan to go to school in new york, find him, and marry him, so that i may be called molly muhly. i could have an awesome alliterate name and it's about time would have been my jam all day every day. short story shorter it didn't happen, yet i did break my squid-eating virginity with him just the other day. {and it's about time was the opening of my senior recital.}

in many ways i am inspired by nico: not just by his music, but also by his use of language in his blog and twitter feed and real life. it's original and gets the point across. he also has bulk amounts of great energy. so it's for these reasons that i've made him the first subject of the manhattanites in march subsection of the my name is _____ feature:

hear // everybody has to buy nadia sirota's album baroque which i have some pieces on and which is a very beautiful thing.
see // i am wildly looking forward to planetarium at BAM [this week!]. we're also doing it in l.a. as part of a "brooklyn festival" and i feel like an impostor because i've been to l.a. more times than i've been to brooklyn. 
eat // i just made a huge pile of ravioli. i'm a lazy shit so i bought sheets of fresh pasta from piemonte on grand street but made the filling out of ricotta, lemon zest, broccoli rabe, and a mash't potato.
don't // don't iron your hair in the dark or you will end up with a fucked up harry potter scar.


nico: matthew murphy
