Gosh, I dont write much anymore. Lack of feeling interesting or general laziness.
So it's 2010. I'm now in my mid 30s. I still live in a little 2 bedroom house in the Heights with Cecily, but I sleep with her dog. My band The Grass Skirts is still together but in a little winter hibernation as we mull over our future direction, so we don't have any shows lined up presently. Neither me or Matt have touched our instruments in about a month and Alfred's off taking wacky lawyer school tests. I work at the same job I've been at the last four years on the Northwest side of town doing the same thing I've been doing and it's so incredibly uninteresting to describe, but I am grateful that I escaped layoffs during the brutal recent economy. Put on a little weight because I sit at a computer at work and I sit on a computer at home and everyone tells me to exercise but I haven't done much beyond mow the lawn every couple weeks, but it hasn't gotten so bad I'm wheelchair bound or need a crane to leave the house. When I had vacation time at the end of 09 I mainly sat at home playing Warcraft, for which I am mildly ashamed. I find it difficult to get more than a couple days off work at a time to truly do anything memorable with it now. This is unfortunate, as I have no children or physical handicap that prevents me from scuba diving off the coast of Tahiti, it's more an inability to make good plans.
I'm going to go do some stuff this weekend. On Friday Sufjan Steven's work "The BQE" gets screened at the Museum of Fine Arts. And also this weekend Bobbindoctrin
have their annual puppetry festival (Thur-Sat), which I'll probably visit on Saturday. Both of my friends who previously would inspire me to work on that stuff have moved away from Houston now. Oh those days of the theater.
My parents gave me Beatles Rock Band for Christmas. All this time I held out because it seemed preposterous to buy an expensive toy guitar. However, the drum kit's really a lot like playing real drums and I'm having great fun learning to play.
