People, I've been busy.
As many of you may be aware, I am moving from Los Angeles to Prague this summer. Over the past week, my entire house has been totally packed up, including my millions of books, and right now, walking through this place is like navigating a forest of crap in boxes. Are you impressed with that totally literal simile that isn't really a simile at all? Because I am.
Other than that, my continued compulsion to re-experience all things related to the oeuvre of Trent Reznor continues apace, and out of consideration for your feelings, I have been resisting the urge to blog every single thought on that topic as it crosses my mind. I know you're grateful. Do be aware that the torture is not over, though, because I am going to see all nine inches of the rockshow in a very small club in San Diego on Monday and Tuesday of next week, and you will be hearing all about it, just as soon as I calm down enough to write coherent sentences. My friends, about this, I am stoked. Please forgive me, and know that in time, this, too, will pass. In the meantime, I want to mention that I was extra, extra clever when I saved my total immersion in The Fragile until the worst of the danger had passed.
Oh, and good news:Trent Reznor is funny, and has no love in his heart for George (Bad) Bush. That link is just for you, Rian. I know you love that shit. My response: Good! I didn't want to see that on MTV anyway, because that would have been LAME.
Meanwhile, I have been launching my future career as a rock reviewer and photographer. Can I make it happen? Sweet Jesus in heaven, I hope so. I think it's something I could be good at, and lord knows I feel the love in that department.
Ideas and notions galore have been spinning around in my head at a rapid pace. I am filled with excitement and trepidation. I am overwhelmed by enthusiasms, and totally enjoying myself. Things are good, my friends, and I love you all. No, I am not currently high on Ecstasy, I just wanted you all to know that. Soon I will be updating with greater frequency, and also, soon, I will be in Prague.
