The week has been oddly long for some reason. Came home yesterday, took the dog for a very windy walk, cleaned the kitchen and dining room, finished up the laundry, then proceeded to melt into the chair. I was tired all day(ironic then, that I come home and do like 3 hours of housework.) I guess sometimes you just need to say the hell with it and let your brain take a holiday, even if it’s just for an evening.
This weekend is the first weekend in a long while that we have no plans. No band trips, no obligations, no nothing. My son has Saturday off so we plan to go old school and play some classic video games on the PS 2 downstairs, then watch some movies. Apolcalyplse Now is first on the list, after that we’ll play it by ear. Speaking of ears, have you seen the trailer for the new David Cronenberg film Crimes Of The Future? Okay, so watch it below:
Holy moly! That looks messed up.
Anyways, yeah so I’m looking forward to a weekend where I’m not required to do anything but chill out and unplug my brain for a bit. I’ve been feeling pretty good lately, between writing here and digging into the creativity. But for some reason this week has felt like a slog. Occasionally the world, time, age all catch up with me and I’m reminded of just how fast things are going. My oldest graduates college in a month, while my 18-year old just got back from a week-long cruise to the Bahamas with her boyfriend and his family. My son is working, driving, finishing up his Junior year of high school, and absolutely, 100% taller than me. It’s amazing how even an inch or two can make you feel like you’re shrinking exponentially.
So this weekend is a bit of a reboot. Tonight is a big pan of lasagna and a movie with my wife. Then tomorrow it’s coffee with my dad, then heading down to the studio to record my second podcast episode with my pal Jason(here’s the introduction episode with me solo, if you’re interested. Right here.) Then it’s old school videogames and Col. Kurtz. Sounds alright to me. It’s an “El Supremo” kind of weekend. Anything worth anything I call “El Surpremo”. It’s the real deal. I’m not really into Mexican wrestling, but I’m very much into Steely Dan.
Check back next week for the regularly scheduled program. Lots of cool stuff in store. Promise. Including an El Paraiso Records celebration of epic proportions. A whole week of looking back at the great Danish record labels first 10, I mean 11 years. That will be a lot of fun.
See you next week.
