Well, I had my first Dillinger Escape Plan experience last night. Holy. Fucking. Shit. I will rarely sit around and listen to this music for pleasure, but the concert is something to behold. It is just a primal explosion of something in a way I have never seen at a show before. I would definitely go again.


I also so Mogwai on Friday, which was...

Yes, I would love to see them gain, but their tours never stop in my city.

Just watched this and laughed my ass off, so thought I'd share.

Favorite - "workin' your biceps"

Dear Rainer, thank you for the sweet words you wrote about my previous blog. Things have indeed taken a turn for the worse on here I think, it is so disappointing..

Hope you are well.

love from Rome,
F.

ps: That Retaphin video is awesome.

Chilling at home, listening to some tunes. Way to utilize that big, awesome city you live in, chief. I should work on them (non-existent) social skills. Haven't even picked up the banjo in a couple weeks, so it would seem that I am something of a funk. Blah. I badly need some sunshine. I don't know if I can handle five to seven...

Who wants to move east and play this music with me? Man.

thanxxx a lot!!!

Thanks for all the music you posted, it's taken me a while but I'm listening to it now! I don't think I had heard any of it before so it's really nice. I love the Mono track.

Well, after a few months away, I got bored and caved. Here I am again.

So, moving to a big, cool city didn't really change any of the parts of me that make socializing so impossible. I only seem to open up to people enough for them to feel comfortable when I am drinking, and that's not really a path a care to...

Now nearing the end of my first week as a Chicagoan. Woohoo! I'm feeling pretty good about things. I'm enjoying myself, even though I've yet to meet anyone or start school. I just wake up feeling energized, which hasn't been the case in sooooo long. So far, so good.

Thank you for the beautiful compliment and for the encouraging words about my set Rainer.

Sir, I'm psyched/envious you got to catch Oswalt & Kinane recently. Kyle's a Chicago native apparently; I'm not sure if he did it but there's a bit on his album about needing to use the bathroom in a Cholo bar that is fucking hysterical. I've never seen either of them live; the non-perks of living at the ass end of the world.

Where'd you move from?

(And more importantly; why?)

Fixed gear bikes - what is the fucking deal? I absolutely do not understand the attraction.

That's about all I've got to say about that.

Simplicity?

Happy birthday!

OK.

Just noticed that I haven't posted a blog in nearly a month now.

I am still in a state of gridlock as far as my thesis is concerned, but I have already signed my lease for the Chicago apartment, so I am moving in two weeks, whether I am able to start my PhD next month or not. I am trying so very...

Hedy,

Thanks for the comments.


Despite having grown up in balmy Dixie, I am a fan of cool and cold weather. I have spent a couple years living in the Alps, so between that and my beer baby, I'm not your typical thin-skinned Southern boy. I will, however, require a sun lamp. I can't wait for Autumn!!! Is it generally nice up there? Ours is pretty heavenly, I must say, especially after five months of Summer.

OK. Once again, thanks, and I hope your liver is treating you nicely these days.

Well, I am quitting my shitass job tomorrow. I am really, really looking forward to that.

It's well over nine months since I have seen the girlfriend, and it is getting really, really old. I miss nuzzling the base of her neck, spooning, her laugh, having her steal my food, the way she falls asleep and is a total monster if you try to...

Fuck! The local animal shelter is overflowing with cats and kittens right now, and I desperately want one and pretty much begged my roommate to let me get one, but he shot me down. I am so beyond disappointing. I should be moving in about a six weeks or so and will be adopting a new kitty as soon as I in the new place...

How the hell do you meet people? I don't know how people who are good at socializing do it. Just go to bars and talk to random people? Doesn't sound like something I'm capable of, at all. I've been back in K-town for a few months now, and in that period of time I haven't really met anyone, and meanwhile...
