gone, but back again…

it’s not often that i find a new band i like, but this weekend, ben, seth, and i went to Nashiville for a starsailor show.

which was good, they had sound problems: far be it from me to complain about the noise, but at times they were so loud that they lost clarity.  i don’t mean to take anything away from them, ’cause they definately had their high points, “four to the floor” and “lullaby” never sounded so good…

peter walker on the other hand…

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us rocked.  maybe i was just in the mood for some good, old fashioned tom petty-ish rock…

so overall, if i were to evaulate him, i’d say his velvet lined version of alt rock is underscored only by his near expressionless subtlety, and punctuated by his aggressive, but not over-the-top blues riffs. 

but really, what i do i know about music anyway.

turns out though, he’s a helluva nice guy too… his bass player is a bit of a skirt-chaser, which he and i had a big laugh about, (he also gave me shit for sneaking seth beers in the parking lot), but these guys were down to earth, which is something i think everyone appreciates.

so, if you’re a myspacer, check out his page, give ’em the add… but if you do, leave him comment saying you heard about him here first.

read something from the links.

so yeah, guess what it did today?…

it snowed.  i was sweating while it was 70 degrees and sunny yesterday, but today it snowed.  unreal.

here's a couple of random observations from my trip thus far:

– prostitutes have the saddest faces you've ever seen.

– the movies 'the weather man' 'elizabethtown' and 'kiss kiss bang bang' aren't that bad.  especially 'elizabethtown'…it was so much better than i thought it was gonna be.  i watched them all on my 16 hour plane ride, so maybe i was just half asleep, but, i remember them fondly.  a 'history of violence' did suck tho…

– everything is truly lost in translation.  love, humor, wit,…everything but the "F" word.  that one is pretty much universal.

– right now, as i type this post, someone in the next room is singing 'the final countdown' at the karaoke bar in the next room.

– as the years pass, something i'm discovering about myself is that i really don't mind being away anymore.  in all honesty, i miss the solitude of my one bedroom apartment, my cat, and my jeep and motorcycle.  i miss having my own bathroom. 

i would say i miss my friends but really sometimes you need a break from everybody.  i would say i miss the ex, but lately i always get the impression she's lying to me, and that's not a feeling i'm often wrong about.  despite everything tho, she's having surgery tommorrow, and i really wish i could be there for her.  so, if you're the praying type, say one for her.   

"…we all want our lives to be 'easy', but 'easy's' not something that enters into adult life." 

on the bus ride after the airport, we had to ride this ‘greyhound’ style bus to our ultimate destination.  during this 5 hour ride, i mostly slept, but because of the efforts of the bus driver who put in this terrible, subtitled movie and spoke little english and didn’t understand what “turn it down” or “too loud” meant.

the highlights of the this movie include a fight scene where this guy jumps above 8 feet in the air and kicks out a street light, and while he getting his ass kicked by a girl, he gets pissed and grabs her baby elephant with both hands by the tail, windmill’s it, and slings it out the window.

this has since become something we say to each other, especially after drinking, instead of the regular, run-of-the-mill “kick your ass” boast.

i’m blogging about it because it’s been overused and this is an attempt to kill it — i hope i never hear it again; so let this be its final resting place.

also, rotten cabbage sucks.
