today it was get up in morning, eat some stuff, then spend about an hour with my mom building her a new trellace for a plant to climb - sturdy thing.

then noon time meeting acoustic consultation for a guy's house addition

then earth day festival with mom! ska band, marimba band, african dancing kids, food, people! sustainable shit and hippy soap and such! made me think of and miss austin.

then dinner with dad and Julie and Alexa! yummy and then sat in their chair looking at their book Seven Years In Tibet which is turn out to be crazy story so far! don't tell me anything i haven't read it or seen the movie.

uhm i guess that's all, actually.

today i had rehearsal with Nathan the drummer at 4pm - we sounded pretty tight i thought.

then i ate fast and went at 6:30 to a strange sort of workshop/energy healing class/talk/discussion/deally bopper with a few strangos and one really great shaman who i knew already was great. somebody needed to play the big fucking drum for the couple of actual ceremonial healing dealies and so, being the musician of the group (and the only man, other than the Shaman), there i go, beating the drum.

fucking love doing that. KER BLAM - moving energy with musicz is freakin cool and easy and badass

then zoomed down, met 'ol S and R, who I needed a dose of, at the Sunshine Theater - they had an extra ticket to Cage The Elephant!

shows you how stupid commercial radio is for promotion - indie record label peeps and bands, take note! I never heard of "cage the elephant" - i had no idea who these blokes were - but I knew like 6 of their songs word for word! shit. radio did a good job of learning me the tunes, terrible job of telling me who was playing them. known phenomenon in radio though. common practice in indie circles sending to college radio is a sticker on the promo cd that says "Remember: Say it when you play it!"

cool show though - very glad to hang with S and R! omg the comfort those solid individuals/pair give me just by their being!

coolest part might be: kid getting busted for trying to crowd surf to stage, then walking off and sneaking behind guards and jumping on stage after all! then getting carted off never to be seen again! - or..perhaps lead singer in one millionth stage dive actually managing to stand up on people's hands and sing.

sunshine's sound - meh. big huge cavern, words gone. ears toast. i bet they'd sound better with a less guitar soaked group. good low end though. kick drum in a huge sound system like that just makes my day.

heh - checking those guys out online - so much subtler on tape. much more dynamic. recording is amazing.

yeah i actually really like this band that's weird. i was walking up the steps saying "who?" and actually this is a band i dig! ha!

thanks S and R!

hi. just. saying stuff here.

went to kung fu tonight. had missed all last week. felt like i hadn't been there in a year. chi so THIN, brittle. did a lot of meditating instead of keeping going.

helps though.

had a lot of things going through my mind, including some about some friends i realize tend to suck energy. then sort of realized why and then sort of realized a lot about what hadn't quite been healed when i met the Famous J, that it'd be nice if I could really truly heal before meeting an equivilant again.

This was all in stretching. thought good and long and hard about celebacy and doing it for a while.

thought about some rules that may need to get implemented in this house if my musician and art and label buddies are gonna come around.

1 - No women other than certain ones (this is really ie: no booty call one night stand dates brought into MY house by OTHER people - long story on this one but it sure did sort of ring true)

2 - no alcohol not approved by aaron (and don't get hopes up) - this is again, not about alcohol itself as much as turning my WORK into a drinking party.

i might want to extend these two to no working past a certain time at night too. to work at 1am delegitimizes your work. is this a pretensious hobby to impress 20 year old bimbos, or are you trying to do something?

3 - no drugs. again it's not the drugs themselves, but the transforming not only my work but also my HOME into a haven for escaping (rather than succeeding in) reality. i think altered states are very important, but for the most part, that's not what people are doing, AND it should be respected as the dangerous and involved journey that it is.

4 - DO NOT HANDLE MY WEAPONS OR TRAINING IMPLEMENTS. LEAVE IT IN ITS PLACE. IF AND WHEN YOU COME TO UNDERSTAND THE REASON BEHIND THIS, ASK PERMISSION, AND BE PREPARED TO STILL HEAR A NO.


interesting.

caught a cold. killing it off.

too much stress, surely.

need yin. need a certain kind of open world and connectedness. worldc feels sort of closed off and uncolorful right now. i recognize that feeling as depression. i don't want drugs though, really.

have used two girlfriends as catalysts to open up and be more connected and adventureish - that's actually WAY WAY WAY too frivilous a word for what i mean. occurrs to me to learn to generate that myself. the biggest stop in my head right now is thinking of being "out there" whereever it is alone, with no partner. it's not about being afraid of things happening or no support, it's about feeling lonely with no special one to share the particular experience with. why i don't generate certain things, other than that, i don't know.

i'm typing with my eyes closed. just sort of sleeping and typing.


if you can see someone's biases when they're advising you, you can take with grain of salt when necessary and not have mistaken advice throw you off or damage you. i just thought of that.

in the bath earlier, i thought here's how you know that it's ok if you miss your deadline or meeting, the world won't end: if an earthquake caused you to miss your meeting, would the earthquake be made worse by your having not been at the meeting?

i don't care what people say, new mexico is encased in a certain spiritual bubble. probably a great place to go train or be healed, but i'm not sure it's the place to be if you're needing to be in the thick of things. maybe it's just that way for me. good place to have a home that you come back to to rest after travelling into the thick of things though.

analagoy about that: recording studio. recording studio is not where you make the connections that make you popular. it is where you have to return to to make your product, but you have to leave it and take your creations out.

it's like the lab. one might need a lab, but they need to go OUT of it to do the real work. sort of like a super hero cave. batman is definitionetly very secluded in his bat cave, it is very oslated and hidden, but in order to do his actual work, he's out in the world.

an insanely hardcore april fool's joke was played on me. it was stressful. not mad, and have to hand it to person, but damn. was stressful.

needing nourishment. needing healing.liked the movie paul.

not gonna proof read this.
