What it is:
Hey, y'all - it's been awhile since I've posted an actual blog about what is going on with me. Seeing that it's a Sunday night and I should be in bed watching the news right now (TMZ) I am blogging instead. I have said this before... just how much I hate Sunday nights, so I'll take my mind off of it by replaying what's been going on with me lately.
I've been writing, a little less than regularly, but I got to see and review the Fine Line Sia show for Spin.com on Tuesday night, and I get to do the same on Wednesday for the Bob Mould show at First Ave. So that's super cool, eh? I gotta cook up some more projects this week - I think I might finally be crawling out of my late winter funk... I went to New Mexico a couple weeks ago and it was great, the weather was beautiful and I had soooo much fun with my girl Shans - but when I came back it was transitional hell, getting back into the swing of things... I don't want to be a hermit anymore...
Went out to the Kid Dakota, Ice Palace and Jeremy Messersmith show last night and ended up standing, in a middle of a PBR tallboy haze, almost right next to one of my least favorite exes. Or as I so lovingly call him, The Troll. The moment of realisation was mildly hilarious as I turned on my heels as faux-calmly as possible and basically darted into the crowd, and (how fitting) subconsciously to the side of another ex (who I am still friends with) to whine at him about my blast from the past. And I felt better. Ok, but enough about that - this isn't livejournal.
So........... the Bruce tour is on again, and in two weeks from today I will definitely be blogging about how he will have blown my mind again, and how I cried over this song or that. And that he played the song I wanted to hear and and how he didn't play one of the songs I wanted to hear. And how excited I am to see him in Milwaukee (which is algonquin for... the good land) the next day. BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (it's gonna be perfect)
My dream list of songs to hear:
The Promised Land (although he won't play it cause he played it last time when i was unschooled on it's redemptive properties)
Darkness on the Edge of Town
Prove It All Night
I think this might have just cemented Darkness on the Edge of Town's status as my favorite Bruce album, but I am still not convinced
I need to get out more! I need to see more music, be more openhearted, more outgoing, more ambitious, more foxy, etcetera etcetera. I need to figure it out, ahem - find my voice, figure out what i am going to do with my writing. Am I gonna keep going, get better, push forward - I think I better keep it hardcore. If you have any suggestions on who to see, where to go - let me know.
