Saturday mornings are for thinking and coffee drinking. I’ve been thinking about trying to take guitar playing a little more seriously lately so I can actually communicate ideas to other humans without nervously trying to fumble through a start stop rendition of a piece. SO. Practice time! Books nowadays are very cool and come with sweet play along cds that don’t make me feel so lonely and sad as I practice slow quiet “free strokes with my thumb”. Make no comment.
Also, thinking a lot of seeing Inception last night. It’s so nice to see a beautiful and complex and quite dark movie be the blockbuster hit for the summer.
Been doing lots of great playing this month, but one thing I’m especially excited about is the return of the Outlanders to the Orbit Room for the month of August, every monday night round 10. It’s a band that I’ve always felt I could totally be myself in, musically and otherwise. Come down and hang out with us, and we’ll play songs of heartbreak, hope, and introspection. Call us introspectors? The introspector? Joel and Bret write great intros and great tunes. Never mind. Hope to see you there..
