today is very slow. none of the heavy-hitters are in, so i can afford to be less paranoid. i'm not sure i really care either way if i get in trouble for using the web. since yesterday morning at 9am the total amount of time i've spent doing actual work is less than an hour. i'm still getting wierd looks from the other assistants. again, i'm not really sure i should waste any energy by being concerned about it...

tonight's the dylan concert. i'll be surprised if more than 10 people show up; i'll also be surprised if i'm not completely shitfaced by the time we start the second set. that's the only way i'll be able to get through it without going crazy. the problem with covering dylan songs is that there's really not much you can do with them besides memorizing the lyrics. there's no room to stretch out or to make anything different - especially when you're playing with hard-core dylan purists. for example, we were messing around on monday night with "it's all right, ma" - our drummer had gone home early, and so i got on the drums - and so by the time we get to the 6th verse, i'd start inserting little drum-and-bass beats into the parts of the verse where there's no singing. you should've seen the looks on their faces...

it's been a rough week, girlfriend-wise - i haven't seen her since sunday morning, and we've really not been able to have a phone conversation last for longer than 5 minutes. she's going through some rought times right now, too, and all i want to do is hold her and just chill out w/ her. we're gonna see "Shrek" tomorrow night, though, which i really hope isn't terrible...

i've been trying to find a cool edition of the "Lord of the Rings" books (b/c the woman will kill me if i don't at least read the first one by the time the movie comes out) but in the meantime I've been reading Richard Brautigan's "The Tokyo-Montana Express". I haven't read any Brautigan in a couple years, but it just seemed about that time - he's really good in cool, rainy spring weather. has anyone else out there even heard of him? get "Trout Fishing in America", if you can - it's awesome.

anybody out there in LJ-land? it's been pretty quiet today...

    1. It's still a bit surreal, to be sure. I have my flash recorder on me, which we used to record yesterday's songwriting session, and I listened to…
