Late


I keep havings dreams where everything that has gone wrong was somehow resolved, reconciled, restored, put right; not like it never happened, but somehow making sense out of it, because now it was better than before. It was so real. But as I woke up and began to realize I was dreaming, I was a little sad. Some things are lost forever I guess.

Music Update


Speaking of getting my creative flare back, I am getting really inspired and excited about music again. Yeah, so...I bought a bass.That's it on the right. I saw it at a pawn shop with a price tag that said $129.99, but I haggled a little bit and got it for $65. Not a bad deal. It sounds pretty sweet too. In addition I picked up a cheapy basic four-track since apperrently the model I wanted from the 1970's has reached the end of it's life span. Every single one I have tried to buy turns out to be dying of the same thing that killed mine. Their kind is vanishing from the world, so I have to move on. Anyhow, keep an eye on the music page of this site for new songs and re-mixed / remastered versions of some old ones.

T-Shirt


Hot of the ironing board. I made this shirt print myself with a pen knife and some iron on t-shirt transfer stuff. I feel like I am getting my creative flare back. I haven't done a t-shirt in a while, and never one like this. It took about 2 hours just to trace the design and cut it out with the pen knife. But it was worth it. I've got a couple other blank shirts too. Man this stuff is fun!

Still Here


It seems like alot of time has passed since I moved here, and I guess it has. I like the place. It feels like home now, sort of. Still a couple bare spots on walls here and there, but they're getting filled up. People are here more often. It feels lived in. I used to be very obsessive about cleanliness and clutter. I apologize to those who had to put up with that. I have relaxed alot since then. A little clutter is human. A stray glass here, a nick-nack there, makes it feel more like home, I guess.
I've started drawing again. It's very...I don't know how to describe it...liberating? empowering? relaxing? Well, anyways it feels good. I've been really inspired musicly as well lately. Too bad I have no way to capture it. No four track or even tape deck, and the only computer I have is a laptop my work lets me take home. Oh well.
A few nights ago saw the first Alva Edison jam session in almost 5 years. It looks like we might have some shows coming up but don't know anything for sure yet.
Work is going very well. I'm a hero again. Or at least I'm popular with my superiors, which is what counts I guess.
Everything else? I dunno. Alright I guess. I have alot to think about, but then again, when do I not have alot to think about? I'm just happy that I've accomplished as much as I have in the areas of writing, drawing, and music in the last few months. We'll see where the next few months take us.

Bad Day; Go for a Walk

Time Warner's online Bill Pay system has messed up AGAIN and lost my payment, so my internet and cable is still off. Then I accidentally erased all the music on my iPod. I'm already strapped for cash without all this crap going on. And I'm having post-holiday-blues. Thanks God for coffee shops with wireless internet. Have you ever been so frustrated, and you try to just forget about it, but it just keeps bugging you? No? Crap. I guess it's just me. Am I having withdrawals from something? I wasn't aware I was addicted to anything, but who knows? Maybe I'm addicted to the internet. That would be bad. I think I'm going to turn off my computer and go for a walk.
