Today I was doing some of my usual things (surfing the internet, working on a little music, and being a myspace friend whore), when I fell into one of those black holes where you can't stop yourself from looking at everyone's myspace profile... like everyone in the entire world... just clicking and clicking and clicking until you forget what you're even doing.
Anyways, in the middle of it all, I ended up on some lady's profile. She was slightly older, but still in shape. She had one lone comment from a younger girl that simply said, "You are beautiful. How do you stay so thin?". [...]
Quick update - the site now has an "Audio Files" section, where basically you can listen to a bunch of mp3s. So far its got samples of "Memories of Green", an album Mike did with the band "Project PS", featuring 12 original songs. Check it out and let us know if it works! [...]
So I'm up late, mixing music in my headphones, watching tv, and bein a nerd on my laptop. I'm watching "The Bodyguard" with Whitney Houston and Kevin Bacon... uh I mean Costner and I pull up the digital cable tv guide just because sometimes its fun to read the program description and browse around other channels while you watch. Guess what the description said?
1:45am - 4:45am
**1/2 '92. He falls for actress singer someone wants dead.
WOW, what a chillingly magnificent work of art. It must have been the writers first day on the job. Thats all I have to say about that. Sidenote: Did anyone else fall for Whitney Houston in that movie? And for those of you who did, are you now in the year 2007 totally humiliated for it? Just a thought. [...]
Today I realized that I like older movies way more than new ones. Sure, some new movies are super duper kick ass dot com, like Terminator 2&3, Xmen, Lord of the Rings, and ones like those.... but overall movies made in the 70's and 80's are just more "real". Not so much in their stories or acting, but just the way the film comes off. Back then special effects weren't as good, cameras were more wobbly, sound was more realistic. When I watch a new movie, its like watching a comic or my imagination, where every scene is perfect, ever move each actor makes is flawless, the film is too clear, the sound is all dubbed in a sound studio. Older movies are much closer to the kind of film I could make on my own home video camera. [...]
So here I am at 5 o'clock, watching the last few minutes of Dr Phil, minutes ago escaping a 3 hour long addiction to Law and Order. My head is freshly shaved, I just did some pull-ups for the first time in over a month (god I miss being buff!). I'm feeling pretty good.
Last night I had practice #2 in hopefully a long string of rehearsals and gigs with a drummer named Kevin. We got together through a mutual friend and so far it seems like we're going to be starting my next project together. Since it seems like Project PS is no more (at least for the time being), I'm going to start up my own solo project. Of course it'll be pretty much exactly the same thing as project ps was - all my own original songs, spiced up a little for/by the other band members, but I have a really good feeling about it. Kevin is one of the best drummers I've ever worked with, and really has his shit together. He also seems really into the project and has a mind for success. As soon as I can find a bassist to fill in the empty bottom end of our act, we plan on gigging again. That'll be so much fun. [...]
