almost 26

Just finished a manic rehearsal; it's almost ready to go. The usual songs will be there:

Weak Heart, Strong Mind
Up for Grabs
Is this necessary?

And the cover of "Isn't it a Pity" is almost ready to go. I can't really play slide guitar to save my life, but I can sorta fake my way through it without the slide, so, I'll give it a shot. It sounds a hell of a lot better than it did last night, that's for damn sure.

Goddamn. Almost 26. Wierd. 25 was a bit rougher than I'd anticipated. Sure, I've passed some milestones:

1. Got on a plane, again.
2. Saw Chicago.
3. Had a year anniversary.
4. Ate at Peter Luger's.
5. Booked my first solo gig.
6. Wrote a whole bunch of new songs.
7. Got back in touch with some good people.
8. Spent a year living as a temp.
9. Discovered LiveJournal.
10. Got a computer.

But there's a lot left to be done. 25 has been rough, too. I haven't been in this bad of a financial situtation since I graduated college - nearly $6000 in debt, now, and no chance of paying it off any time soon. My old band broke up in April. I'm not yet a rock star.

I've got a lot to shoot for. I've also probably got just as much to miss.

See you on Sunday - full review of the show and the post-show drinkies to come.

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
