Well, i did get the dreaded haircut today, and it's not too bad, and a whole lot better than the 'before' boofhead look.
had to get up to feed my screaming daughter vegemite on toast "toe, mite" at 5.30 this morning, that wasn't the best start to the day, but then at least she happily went back to bed, and so did i and got a sleep in 'til 9 i think. pretty good.
then just had another lazy day playing with the little one, watching some kids' TV or "tee-bee!" which is hard not to watch, thankfully we didn't catch any of the dreaded wiggles. jees they suck.
listened to some massive attack, eyvind kang and keith jarrett. very chilled. even came up with a heavy rock-ish bassy riff on my dodgy elec i leave in the lounge (bc rich mockingbird). haven't played much guit in weeks now, have just felt too drained to bother. but it's good, even just a little bit to get some ideas, record them and get back to them later, work em into a song.
yeah, so now i'm just chillin like bob dylan, having a green tea and thinking i should read a bit before trying to get an early night... but they never happen. i did try to get to sleep at like 10.30 a week ago, and just couldn't. was falling asleep on the couch downstairs, but after relocating upstairs, and brushing my teeth, etc, just got nowhere. i hate that. so i might crap on about somethign on my other blog. my more serious blog which is just stupid fun. there's this thing i was going to write about albums which are different to listen to/ get into at first, but which can be very rewarding after a few listens and open-mindedness. i was thinking stuff like Ween's early work, Faxed Head (well, not for all people), Shinjuku Thief, some John Zorn, Mr. Bungle, but more those 'strange' albums - like extreme ambience or noise or glitch sounds, collages, improvisation, and lo-fi garage rock, etc - which make you question their worth as a medium of enjoyment or art or whatever. i started writing some of this to throw it all down in a sort of stream of consciousness, while i thought of it, and it made me think of albums that were controversial or deliberately different but that don't work for me. where eg. avant garde just equals shit. unlike in my own home recordings, where everything is of the highest musical calibre!
i'm not even sure why i started writing this blog. it was a spur of the moment thing which was to joke about not actually traveling. but it's helped to crystallise some ideas in my head, in the way writing anythign down does. and it's just different to write here and just feel free, not that i had many readers of my other blog, but i do find this empty slate refreshing.
