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!


recooping

so this is my second evening at home after being released from hospital. i lost about ten pounds during my stay, which is really nothing like 'real' weight loss. i ran some errands today for about an hour and ate a legit meal.

i know most people were wondering "oh no, what will happen to the superalbum? should we expect a post humous release of semi complete material?" (ya right)

that morbid thought aside... apart from the obvious no fun found in being in a hospital and ill, it was a good long break from the internet and my computer and deadlines and let me think about what is important to me in this crazy,crazy world. i look to record tomorrow (i should have the house to myself) with increased zeal and with more of a message to express.....stay tuned


well, it's been a month!

ok, so blogging has clogged to a halt. i've been very busy. i will try to do a quick recap of events:

1) got a new job in saskatoon with zu.com communications

2) went on a independent roadtrip through Saskatoon-Lloydminster-Edmonton-Calgary where i met with friends and family along the way, including my new niece Berlyn Marie Code. also made living arrangements for the summer.

3) finished working for the chinook school division last friday

4) have been packing the last few days and playing ball hockey the last couple of nights

5) move back to saskatoon on thursday


moving, purging, cleansing

moving: no one likes to do it (ok, sadists probably do). but it is a lot of work.

however, there are benefits - the time between jobs, between living arrangements, etc provides the time and change necessary to contemplate on one's past and evaluate how they have been living and what they want to obtain in their life and their future to have in store. it is a reflective time and also the act of packing and choosing what to no longer bring with one can be a sort of letting go with parts of the past that have been clung to or are hurtful.

it is also draining though - no matter how much or little one is looking forward to change, it takes something out of you.

Ray Lamontagne - Jolene ()

...A man needs something he can hold onto
A nine pound hammer or a woman like you
Either one of them things will do
Jolene
I ain't about to go straight
It's too late
I found myself face down in the ditch
Booze in my hair
Blood on my lips
A picture of you, holding a picture of me
In the pocket of my blue jeans
Still don't know what love means
Still don't know what love means...
