What do I love right now?

What’s the deal with your bed being so comfortable and inviting when you go to bed and suddenly its 2AM and you might as well be sleeping on a bed of nails? Maybe I am sleeping on a bed of nails. My lord it was ugly. I was already looking at 5 hours max but with Arlie deciding he doesn’t like the dark anymore at 2 and then not going back to sleep after getting him to….it was over. I accepted my fate and decided to put all my focus on the show and then sleep under my desk when it was over…so right now I’m under my desk…you can’t see me, you can’t see me, I’m undeeeeeeer my deeeeeesk! Nah nah nah nah nah. Luckily I’ve solved the dark problem with Arlie. I told him that he should love the dark because it hides all the monsters and dragons that are living in his room. Who wants to see THAT when you’re trying to sleep?!

Now I have the coffee shakes and my face is 6 inches from my keyboard. If someone were to walk up right now they’d probably call for some help. I probably wouldn’t fight it. I need some rest.

Who do I love right now? I’ll tell you:

Pablo. Seriously great record. When you can HEAR longing and pain and joy in every song? That’s a good thing.

The Shackles. Been playing a song from their demo. Told me they have like 5 releases or something. Where the hell have I been? Where the hell have they been? I don’t know but they rule and I’m making up for lost time.

Apes & Androids – The Foundry Field Record. Cassettes Won’t Listen- All three bands are playing our Friction event at Sin-e on Aug 23rd in NYC and I have to tell you, its an impressive bill of upcoming bands that will be getting the holy hell played out of them on the Morning Show.

Forward Russia. You in the UK already know but I’m just finding out just how great this band is. And by great I mean awesome and by awesome I mean rad and by rad I mean great

Voom Blooms. Obviously love them, just reminding everyone that I love them.

Amy’s pizza’s. But man they’re like 7 or 8 dollars now.

Ryan Sandberg. 2nd base for the Cubs 1982 through 1997. 1984 MVP. From Spokane WA. Much better hometown hero then that assclown John Stockton. That guy bought the marina by our lake place and tried to tear it down. I think he wanted to build Karl Malone a palace or something to replace it. Now it just sits there all falling apart.

My cat Rocky. Dude threw up all over the basement yesterday. He does that when Arlie starts getting on his nerves. He’s all “man I’m sick of that kid trying to ride me like a horse and smacking me upside the head with his sippy cups, I think I’ll vomit my brains out in the basement”.

Eye pillows. I have to wear one. You heard me. I have to wear an eye pillow. That’s what I do for you. I strap on an eye pillow. I have renamed it though to make it more awesome. Its now called “Super Awesome Eye Mask Of Power”. So every night I say “Time to strap on my super awesome eye mask of power”. Then my wife looks at me like I’ve lost my mind and we go to sleep.

    I wear an eye mask (pillow = girly man). It is either that or run the air conditioner and close up the house against all the ambient Italian Market light. So I try to convince myself that I am a fancy lady or something and wear an eye mask so I can have the windows open. Even though it is the freebee I got from British Airways. And I’m stopping myself from buying a purple feather boa and a cigarette holder to go with it.

    My husband doesn’t give me weird looks, then again I haven’t named it, but it sure does enable him to sneak up and scare the shit out of me at night. Good Times!

    Amy’s Pizza – Try stopping by that outlet grocery store on Union & MLK. I was there a while ago and they had the frozen Amy’s pizzas for $3.99. Quite the deal………
