Robert's Beck anecdote

"Earlier this year Carline and I were walking in Vancouver and I said 'that guy looks like Beck'. And he was wearing crazy clothing and was with the actor Giovanni Ribisi's sister, who he was apparently dating.

Carline without looking replies 'no, totally not him'. So as he just passed us, I said 'let's pretend we forgot something' and walked back after him.

Then Carline looks at him and says 'that is totally him'. And it was apparent that it was him as other people were saying stuff like 'I love your music, gonna see you tomorrow at the Seattle show.'

However, Carline could not help staring at Beck and she kept looking at him creepily until he got obviously nervous and nessled into me. And then he said 'hey man, do you know where burrard is?' And I told him 'about two blocks that way' and he said 'Cool man'.

The kicker, was upon further inspection he was wearing the exact outfit that he did in his ticketmaster advertisements."

To this anecdote I give my highest rating, the derek zoolander "cool story, hansel"


clear thinking

i've been able to think very clearly the last week, and had some really great problem solving ability at work and at leisure - getting back into some complex mathematics

not sure how long this will last, but it is a pleasant surprise


the "tiger", weekend plans

after working a ton lately, i am done for the week and plan on taking it super easy this weekend - including monday which i have taken off.

i hope to get some recording done as well.

saw the vancouver band "pride tiger" at louis' tonight. i had previously seen them at amigos last year. they kicked ass - very tight band, energy, riff based, led zeppelin esque, with the key difference that the lead singer is the drummer - very cool

they only played for an hour, but for $10, that was well worth it

i bought myself a t-shirt for $10 after and talked to the lead singer for a minute and had him sign it. cool show


thoughts

so, i have pondered that music often sounds very good in my car. therefore, it would be worthwhile to try recording myself with an acoustic inside of it - with modern technology, i could easily fit my laptop, mixer and microphone. the only external power i would need would be for my one phantom power unit, which i could buy a lighter adapter for...with winter coming this might have to wait until spring or a very mild day

thought two:
morality aside, i was wondering whether betrayal or rejection is worse to face


happy birthday robert!

it is my brother robert's 25th birthday (wow). hope he has a good one in vancouver!
