full life

(no subject)

1.  Just last week I was starting to really get anxious about, well, a whole bunch of things - my musical career, my actual job, wondering what the hell I'm doing with my life - and now, suddenly, things might be starting to change.  It's too soon to really go into any details, especially since a lot of this stuff is just in the initial, talking phases - and, also, I'm trying not get too excited about it -  so I'll just say that there is a very cool opportunity being set up this week, which would lend itself PERFECTLY to my current situation, and if it works out, this would be the first step in possibly a really exciting musical endeavor, and I'd be getting paid.  

2.  Not to mention that the OTHER guy I contacted last week has written back, and we're gonna try and set something up this week.

3.  This week, then, has gotten really busy, really fast.  Which is crazy.

4.  My grandmother is, again, not doing very well.  She's 92 years old and for the last 4 or 5 years she's almost died about once every 3 months, and last night it almost happened again.  

5.  I don't watch the Grammys - I think the last time they were relevant to me was back when Paul Simon's "Graceland" came out -  but I HAD to watch the Police, and HOLY SHIT they were awesome.  If that little jazz odyssey section of "Roxanne" means that they'll be reinterpreting their catalog on their upcoming tour, I think I'm gonna die.  They absolutely kicked ass and I'm prepared to spend an OBSCENE amount of money to see them.

There's something fucked up with my throat - ever since yesterday afternoon it's hurt to swallow, and it hasn't gotten any better.  It feels like I got punched right on my Adam's Apple.  Ugh.  This would be a terrible time to be sick, or worse.

EDIT:  In case you can't follow along:

They opened with Message in a Bottle, and then played When The World Is Running Down.  (Andy was pretty rusty.)

Then, tour details:  May 28 in Vancouver, throughout the US until August (including Fenway Park on July 28)... then Europe, until October when they come back to the US.

Ticket prices are $225, $90, $50.  Being a BestBuy RewardZone member will get you advance notice and access to tickets.

More info as it happens.

EDIT:  No backing vocals, no backing people - just 3 dudes.

EDIT:  Can't Stand Losing You

EDIT:  Roxanne (full version.)  I gotta say - Andy's gotta practice, he's playing like utter crap.  Sting and Stewart are absolutely on top of their game, but Andy's fucking up all over the place...

EDIT:  That's it.  Tour starts in 3 months.  That will not give me enough time to raise the $10,000 it will take to get nosebleed seats....
