2001: A plane crashes into the Pentagon and the next day all the surveillance camera footage disappears from the earth.
2009: A plane crashes into the Hudson river and the next day there's surveillance camera footage of it all over the internet.
(I don't want to echo Shelby here): but I'm getting sick of all the cattiness and drama that exists sometimes in circles of friends/coworkers/bandmates/roommates/et
c. It wouldn't have mattered to me much at all; except; there's a party tonight that I can't go to because my ex-girlfriend from years ago (YEARS AGO!) will be there, so I'm not invited.
When I can't just enjoy myself because girls are stupid (not all of them), I get a little pissed (because I can't get pissed at the party).
It's all good.
(I do want to echo Shelby here): I can't wait to go back to New York City again (best spring [awakening] break ever '09!) and I can't wait to move into a house in a better neighborhood with better access to the bus routes and a room where i can play music and a yard where my futuredog can run free (but not really).
By the way. Happy New Year everyone. I was in New York City for the ball-drop (but I didn't see it) because my balls were dropping on the dance floor at a party 10 blocks away (no man can control his balls while dancing). I did drunkenly wander into Times Square at 3:30 in the morning while looking for the subway stop to get me back to Xaq's house in Queens. I played a lot of pool and drank a lot in Queens. I went to Central Park and Strawberry Fields was underwhelming. I went to the Alex Grey gallery (this guy
). He was there in the gallery and it was impressive. I also went to the Met and saw some of my favorite paintings in person (like this one
) and discovered some new favorite artists (like Raqib Shaw
). I enjoyed my 11 days there a lot (and ate a lot of good food). New York City is my new favorite place and perhaps one day I will live there.
Beyond that, I've been working a lot (very boring data entry bullshit) and working on music a lot (much more enjoyable recordings with Maryann and the Shaky Hands in a professional studio, and recordings with SuperHouse and Federal!State!Local! in my own personal studio [my room]). Maryann and the Shaky Hands is playing at the Lucky Lounge on Monday night (Jan 19th) at 10PM. It's a free show and there's $1 Modelo at the bar. You should come (or not).
I'm almost 23 and I've done so little. Good thing there's plenty of time and space for me to fill (yeah, I'll fill your space).
