I woke up this morning and bought an mc chris ticket for Tuesday! I’m really excited for this show, even though I know it might be sort of lame. I just want to see mc chris in person – that’s really what it boils down to. I’m not going to listen to his new stuff yet, though. I want to be surprised. Actually right now I’m listening to Broken Bells, which is an awesome album, as it turns out. It’s the singer from the Shins and Danger Mouse together writing and playing awesome music that sounds a lot like the Shins but somehow way cooler. Check it out!
While I’m on the subject of awesome things, how about Swingers? I just watched it for the first time in a while last weekend with Eric and London, and it’s just as fantastic as it ever was. Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau are in it, and they’re both pretty hilarious. Plus the movie has a really effective message about relationships. I was going to connect this to something in my life, but as it turns out, I already forgot the connection.
I had another session last night with London and Davis. Their song is really coming together nicely, I heard the bounce this morning. Last night I assisted the tracking of drums and bass – the session guys they managed to find were incredible. Especially the drummer (Jamie ___?) – he was like a machine. You could give him any pattern to play and he would just play it right back to you. Exactly what a session musician should be. It’s funny to think that I used to want to be a session pianist. Dream big, right? By the way, I’ll see if I can post/link to the final mix of this song that they/we are working on when it’s finished. It’s sounding really good at this point.
Josh just came over for a few minutes, and somewhere amid our talk about computers, he told me that I was “that guy”, indicating that he sees me as a person with a varied set of skills. At least, that’s how I took it. He mentioned computers and music, and how good he thinks I am at video games. I just wanted to say
Thanks again, Josh. You made my day.
I’m going to Thanksgiving dinner in Brooklyn tonight! Dave and his roommates are hosting, and it’ll be a rad rockin time! I haven’t been over there in a while, and Dave and his roommates are all great guys. Plus I haven’t seen Kenny in ages, that’ll be fun. And then school tomorrow…oh yeah. No worries.
So I’m going to go write some music and maybe draw a pretty picture. Here’s real, actual footage from when the periodic table had a dance party.
