Things have been a little wacky lately and I haven’t been particularly music- or writing-focused for about a week.  Part of this has to do with the fact that Back Alley Social is (apparently) still renovating their back room and I haven’t had a space in which to play out.  Another part of it is that my girlfriend bought her first house—a really beautiful, but beaten, Victorian-style home built in the year 1900—and I spent some time over there yesterday yanking out subflooring and inhaling dust.  Everywhere, renovation. 

Then there’s school, and let me tell you, being a 30-year-old dude who is working full-time and taking community college classes online can fill up significant chunks of life at a time.

So I guess you could say I’ve been preoccupied.  I was hoping to have a new mix up for you guys today, but Audition wasn’t cooperating over the weekend and I preferred to just play records to myself than mess with software issues. 

Right now, though, I’m ear-to-the-ground for new opportunities to play out.  If you know a bar or club in Austin who wants a DJ, take just a moment to assure them that I don’t drop R&B or top-40 pop, then send them to me!  Or send me to them, shoot, either way. 

Thanks for hanging with me, Internets.  Look forward to some good music and some new fiction in coming weeks.

"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really.

"How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty.

And yet it all seems limitless..."

- Paul Bowles
