Sorry for the lack of updates last week. I was out sick for a while (vomit and I are not friends anymore. Of course we had been out of touch for a while...) Last week saw some major changes in my life. The most earth shattering: I officially broke up with my girlfriend. Most of y'all probably didn't even know I had one in the first place. There were reasons for that and no, you do not already know all of them even if you think you do. The reasons for me breaking up with her a myriad as well and no, I'm not going to dish on my blog. I want to remain friends with this particular girl and would rather not air our dirty laundrey in public. Suffice it to say that things had not been good in a while and we kept slugging away at it because we both cared about each other. Just not the way a girlfriend/boyfriend ought to.
Don't worry, I won't get all depressed about this and start reverting to teen angst mode. I'm pretty entrenched in 20-something-angst mode anyway. This was a very good thing that happened; it was painful but now it's over and we can move on, hopefully in a responsible and mature way. But knowing me, that is about as likely as seeing GW Bush manning the calls at a PBS fundraiser.
Other wacky stuff has been happening in my corner of the universe and unfortunately it does not solely involve my personage so I'm really not at liberty to divulge any details. Let's just say things got really complicated, really fast for a lot of folks in my sphere. My involvement in said complications was minimal (I think) and Hopefully won't result in any loss of life, limb or friendship. I did find out I could throw folks out of my house if I need to. That's kinda cool.
I watched a cool movie last week called "A Nation Without Women" from Bollywood releasing giant Eros Entertainment. How's that for a name? If you've ever seen any Bollywood films you know they are about as far removed from what that name implies to my Western ears as possible. But I love them never the less. I took a whopping five pages of notes on that sucker (in itty-bitty handwriting) so expect a good sized review from me sometime this week.
I'm getting psyched about the show in El Dorado this weekend (Friday, schleppy). Einstein's has treated us well in the past, let's hope they keep it up. The album continues to inch closer to completion. The artwork is the sole holdup now and Saratoga is working on some replacement artwork if the original stuff doesn't come back to us for reformatting. I kinda hope it doesn't because Sara Herbert is one hell of a designer and if she pulls off something as good as the work she did on The Pillage People EP then we're a lock for that "Best New Artist" Grammy.
Chris Jay continues work on a screenplay he says he want me to act in. I haven't worked onstage or film in a couple of years so this should be cool as fuck. I'm still pissed about not being tapped for The Dog Thief.
If you get the chance go over to famousforfifteen.blogspot.com and check out what's there. Sara and Chris really maintain that blog and I want them to know folks are reading it and caring about it. Liek that fern your mom gave you but you didn't water. I need to karmicly make up for that.
