UGH. [Mar. 24th, 2007|05:25 pm]
at least limbeck is in town.

and i can work out WHENEVER I WANT (without sand weights).

and i'm driving a charger.

and i probably won't sleep for awhile.
except monday.
but i picked up a work shift for someone who doesn't like working.

this sinus thing is getting out of my body USING MENTAL POWER.
but my battery is getting cashed too quickly these days.
but the gears keep turning.

It’s my luck they’ll misconstrue it'

Hey guys! I went ahead and recorded the track and it's now on myspace. The link to purchase the song is also on there. Just click on the "Make a Donation" button and donate at LEAST $1. Feel free to donate more than that if you can/want. Also, please repost this on all your journals and myspaces and whatever else you have to help the family out. Every penny given to this will be donated to the family. Also, when you pay your money on the paypal site, please include your email address if you want the MP3 of the song sent to you.

okay, so fraud is super-lame and fake.
atrociously fake.
so i hate it.

but this guy sticks to his guns.
and married a 25 year old stripper.
he's got redeeming qualities and is innovative.


the army is making new designs for warheads.
i sometimes wish i was born in an age before nuclear war and gun powder, but i love electricity and plumbing, so i guess i'll take it.

i watched gladiator today.
and wrote a song, called 'shadows and dust (ms. whiteout)'

i got the whole day off!!!
now pete yorn and aqualung at first ave. and hopefully the end of white light riot's set and mark mallman at triple rock.

[Current Music |wilco]

moments i can still taste:

1. ocean by john butler trio, live at bonnaroo
2. when the music's over by the doors, 2005 in winnipeg. unscripted encore by ray manzarek, just amazing. 15 minutes of delight.
3. inside out by eve 6, the first time i ever put a car in a ditch. i didn't even own it yet. i was testing it out.
4. atlantic city by pete yorn (originally by bruce springsteen) first time i saw pete at the quest club about 4 years ago. just breathtaking.
5. ain't takin' bout love by 3eb (originally van halen), at fargo fair in '98 or '99. just surreal.
6. future freaks me out by motion city, first ave, two years ago. amazing.
7. jack the lion by harvey danger, 400 bar, last november. everything i wanted it to be, 8 years ago.
8. dear prudence by the beatles, listening to it on manual repeat from my dad's white album LP hours on end on rainy weekends growing up.. finishing the track and moving the needle back to the beginning
9. rocky raccoon by me (originally by beatles), first bonnaroo, last day, we had just packed up our camp because we saw rain coming, and i started playing as it started to rain and people sang along and were merry. it was great.
10. lit up by buck cherry, playmaker's in fargo, 2001. the essence of rock'n'roll.

square pegs. [Jan. 30th, 2007|02:36 am]

[Current Music |gary jules]

maybe i can never get a square job.
i feel the most alive at 3 in the morning.

i feel accomplished when i've worked 45 hours during the weekend.
i don't mind working all weekend and getting a lazy monday.
i revel in doing nothing.
i revel in days off.

i create, create, create.
and that is enough.
and that is enough.

animals don't have to deal with self-actualization.
they can't timestamp their entire life.
they can live in the moment.
lord, let's do that.

i'm insecure as a lifegoaler, as a songwriter.
but i am lighting torches all night.
i am making sure this presence is known and building.
and building? and building.

time without consequence [Jan. 12th, 2007|12:06 am]

[Current Music |alexi murdoch]

the show was great.
good people came.
many thanks to all who showed up.
i even got to do the cliche, acoustic encore, which was the first song many people have known me by.
it was also recorded at the sound guy erik's old studio in his house, so it had that good time feel.

i'm doing alright.
i'm actually working on my auto-biography, but it's hard to decide where what parts go where because:
a) my memory is almost non-existent
b) i have the chapters currently set up to be one chapter of certain aspect of life, chronological chapter, another aspect of life, another chronological chapter.. so maybe it's not the best set up, but it's slowly coming together
c) i finally decided to not censor myself in this thing, as if i do, i'll look back on it as if it WERE my life and the actual memories will be eradicated by some 85% true story that i slightly changed to save my own skin.

you gotta live outside your skin.
you gotta live.
