it doesn’t matter, does it? i have a love/hate relationship going with my camera, lately. mostly with the battery, which i refuse to replace, seeing as it is still pretty much new.
most pictures i have are of the indoor variety, either on stage or holding a beer (off-stage behaviour) and looking generally seedy. i’m a bit sick of those pictures, so until i have some more highbrow things to share with you visually, i will refrain. i am not blaming the subject matter of my photos on my battery, as that would be a little transparent and i may get called up on it and find myself without a valid retort.
we’ve also seen enough of my shoe collection (this is also not my battery’s fault).
when not drinking beer, even i was surprised to find that i have written more than an album’s worth of songs! i do sometimes wonder where the time goes and what i did with it so, as far as surprises go, this was a pleasant one.
i write anywhere from once to three days a week, and i guess that all adds up eventually.
i would still like to have two or three solid smashes under my belt before i think about the next step, but i am very close.
in other news, i am off to get a shiatsu massage in a minute. seeing as my other career and hobby is yoga, i figure i need to keep the machine well oiled and tuned. i go every three weeks or so and get pressure-pointed into submission. it is strange and effective.
seeing the drones live at the forum.
seeing peaches live at the palace.
seeing ‘burn after reading’ at the movies.
reading ‘my mistress’s sparrow is dead’
getting up on stage to road-test two brand new songs i wrote with mark seymour at his show at the vineyard last wednesday.
being asked if that was ‘the ben lee song’ i was playing at soundcheck at the oakleigh bowling club (cute).
all in all, it’s been a productive time and i am quite pleased with having deceived myself otherwise, if only to see the expression on my face (if i were to look in the mirror), when i realised i’m not really a lazy sod after all.
hope you are all discovering new and surprising things about yourselves, too. go do an inventory or write a list that you can look back on later, for maximum effect.
love and fearlessness,
from the first lines of lyrics to these very compasionate and witty ones above, i always knew that lazy for you can be nothing but a temporary state,because you have brilliance. im so happy i waited 10 years for this wonderful album and will treasure it ,confident you will always be among the best and holding my breath for your next move,and i feel your having a beautiful continued evolutions ,so it makes me send you a smile . my syntax is weird,im french from montreal and i love it. come here someday ,by the way. cheers champion!
