So we didn't make a record this weekend. Everything's been on hold for about a week now; I'm sure you all know the feeling. We're still playing in Chicago on the 12th, as far as I know.
If you see anyone harassing a middle-eastern-looking person, you should kick the harasser in the head & then give them a talking-to.
I've been getting all my news & talk radio from NPR. Now and then it occurs to me how sheltered this keeps me from the "real" attitudes in the U.S. Everyone seems so coherent & relatively rational.
Actually, I don't have too much to say. Be strong & kick the racists.
I think everything's working now... well, that's not true, there aren't any pictures yet. There will be soon.
Such a nice day in Seattle. Here, let me open the window -
Okay. Out late last night, and really a little too drunk, but I swear I'm going to get out into this day. I've got to find my car, I know that much. Last night I dreamed of a huge flying spider/insect that builta moving web in my living room which caught moths and tiny birds... too much. I lost my job about a month ago, voluntary layoffs, so I've had lots of time to lie around trying to remember my dreams. Sometimes this takes all day, well into the next night. That I'm sitting upright, that I can remember how to type, that I have any will left at all is something of a miracle.
Not really. But I am currently jobless. Andy's jobless, too, at least until the middle of this month. Tim's got a job. I may have a job soon, I dunno. I've got a few ideas. If anyone else has any ideas, please let me know.
So - what have we done? Not a ton; but we did work out some new songs, and I swear to you, they sound good. Matt came out from Boston and played piano, and the whole thing, the whole package sounded good. We were all kind of shocked! So we booked some studio time in mid-September, we're all gathering in Chicago & we'll try yet again to make a hit record. I think we're playing a show there, too, in October - on the 12th? With Kinski. So you should all migrate to Chicago for it, you've got about a month to plan & a week to travel. That is all you will need.
Is that enough? It's not much, but it's something. I'll see if I can fix the pictures page, but not before I get out in the sunshine. Summer's nearly over! Get with it!
I'm too tired to write anything, really - but I gotta say I am excited that this site is working again. You know what happened? I started getting hacked!! Hacked!! Like in those teenage movies, like in the newspapers! It appeared to be coming from Romania - but now I know that appearances are deceiving! They mean nothing!
So I found some other company to host the site for me. I was so tired, so very tired of being hacked! Then guess what happens? Two days go by, and this same company starts getting hacked - through me! I swear I did not do it, I did nothing! But someone was very excited about getting my goat, and boy! They got my goat!
So I'll write more stuff about the band here in a little bit. Things are still pretty slow, but we're all doing fairly well and there actually are a few things to tell. But it's late and I'm tired, you know?
I'm sure you do.
I'm going to Chicago today. And it's about time, let me tell you, even though it's a beautiful day in Seattle and I'm feeling healthy and well-fed, it's time to get out of town. Out! You know how sometimes, regardless of how self-satisfied and contentedly gluttonous you feel, your environment starts feeling oppressive? I need to try another form of gluttony, or at least gluttony in another town. Do not forget to come to Schuba's on Friday!
You know that show at Schuba's, the one on May 25th? I'm in a hurry so just let me tell you quick that Matt Kadane, yes Matt Kadane is going to be doing his thing onstage while we are doing our thing. That's right - his thing. It'll be fun, it'll be just like in Italy. Any of you who missed the Italian shows absolutely must come to this show! Okay got to go!
