full life

(no subject)

1. I didn't watch the State of the Union, because I already know the State of the Union: we're all fucked. Instead, I went through all my old rehearsal cassette tapes in an effort to find the original studio demo that my high school band recorded; Scott says that he's got access to the equipment necessary to get all our cassettes onto CD, which would be awesome. As it turns out, I couldn't find the demo itself but I did find 3 concerts and, what's more, some 4-track stuff that I had recorded about 4 or 5 years ago that I had absolutely no memory of. There's nothing quite like discovering music you've written and completely forgotten about - especially since there are traces of later songs in them. In any event, it was fun to listen to, and I'm hopeful that some of those ideas might end up useful.

2. I had my physical this morning. It'll go behind a cut, but before I begin, I'm reminded of one of my favorite exchanges from one of my favorite movies, "The Usual Suspects":

Fenster: Man, I had a finger up my asshole tonight.
Hockney: Is it Friday already?

In any event, I'm just grateful that action is being taken. I'm on the service road approaching the road to Wellville, dammit.
