My Freefall

By | May 11, 2007

For the last few weeks I have lacked motivation. I am not sure if work is taking all of my energy, or my body does not know how to react to sunlight but there are times I feel like I am just coasting. I could go to bed Monday and wake up Thursday and think that was natural.

This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

At work the idea was proposed that we go to Coachella next year. We figured that if we saved $50 from each paycheque between now and then we would have a thousand dollars to cover the cost of tickets, accommodation and travel.

An interesting idea, we will see if this goes anywhere. The last few years at Coachella appear to have been epic, so why would it break from tradition in 2008? If anything it would be one helluva stag for my wedding six weeks later.

Jenna is at work tonight so I am using my free time to edit the Wednesday night recording of Everclear. I do not think I will get around to editing the Interpol show. I still have some shows from 2005 that have not been edited yet and some work to do on the March 2006 Matthew Good DVD, so Interpol will go on the backburner.

That is what you get for being such a minimalist band Interpol, how does it taste?

The Everclear set was surprisingly solid. They flowed some one song to another with a very quick transition. By my count there were 20 songs played in a ninety minute set, very tight. If they did come back it would be great to see them in a smaller venue, perhaps Starlite Room or something similar.

I imagine their fan base will probably only allow for a smaller venue as the days of playing the Shaw Conference Center are gone.

I plan on cycling through Beaumont tomorrow morning. It has been about ten months since my last ride and am looking forward to it. The bike was tuned up this week, and without charge. When I bought the bike in September 2005 I was given a free year of service. I only used that luxury once, and figured that last September my free service had expired.

Although when I picked the bike up this afternoon he put a United Cycle sticker on my seat to let the cashiers know everything was good and sent me on my way. Thanks United Cycle, I will be back very soon to put that saved money back into your store.
