Bass for your Face

Three day weekends are spectacular. Movie watching and tons of reading done.

Visioneer and Chumscrubber, both great movies. Still reeling from Chumscrubber's ending and how everything came together. Glenn Close's character, though more minor than the others, was definitely a highlight.

Comedians of Comedy again turned out to be great, I LOVE Maria Bamford.

Recent listening list:

Venetian Snares- DOLL DOLL DOLL
Nero's Day At Disneyland- From Rotting Fantasylands
Ars Dada- In Discordia
Duran Duran Duran (yes, there's 3 Durans)

Recent reading list:

The Kitchen Readings: Untold Stories of Hunter S. Thompson, by Cleverly and Braudis

Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy, and The Road. Of the Trilogy, I think I enjoyed The Crossing(book 2) the most, due in part to the story of Billy and his journey with the wolf into Mexico.

Alan Furst's Red Gold, and Your Day In The Barrel

Just finished Denis Johnson's Resuscitation of a Hanged Man... Phenomenal! And I recently started his Already Dead: A California Gothic

Back to work tomorrow, but going into it with a refreshed outlook, and the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight! Soon, it'll be switching gears back into school mode, getting a little less skin cancer and being in the presence of people much more often.

Keep positive! No more worries

Monday August 10th,

The first show I'll have gone to in over two months. That's just not right. I don't ever want to let my job get in the way of what makes me happy, ever again. No more missing shows due to work or stress or fatigue.
GO! It will be more than worth it. Feed off the energy... All will be well

Nero's Day at Disneyland, who's quickly becoming one of my favorite electronic(-ish) musicians, ALASKAS, and Universal Studios Florida, all playing in Oakland. Should be a great show!

Writing a short story about a man driving solo through the southwestern deserts, sleeping in motel parking lots in the hours just before dawn.
Another reckless evening.

Listening to Pygmalion by Venetian Snares and some Xanopticon, I shouldn't have had that last something.
November 5th is plenty far away, plenty of things to occupy one's mind until then...

The Road is daunting, can't read before bed. TOO MUCH ash and gray and murk.

Mountain trip soon. then AUGUST 10TH- NERO'S DAY AT DISNEYLAND in Oakland. I'm pretty sure that will be an amazing night.

I'm in Tehran.
