so i looked around and i noticed there wasn’t a chair

we bought a house.  and in dc. floorplanb (5k image)Last weekend we were planning on going to the AFI theater in Silver Spring to see “All The President’s Men”. Sure we’ve seen it a billion times, but they were going to have a panel of reporters from the 70s there for some question and answer. We really wanted to check it out. Saturday during the day we hit up Emily’s Father and Nan for some lunch. It was pretty cool. We found out that he likes Curb Your Enthusiasm a little too much. Goddam that show is so annoying. They should all be shot. Anyways, after that we decided to hit up Baltimore and went to Miss Irene’s to pick up a beer and just relax. There we met up with some of Emily’s old friends and lovers. They were all very nice and pretty well versed.

After that, since our social factor was so high, we gave Becca a call to see what she was up to. We hadn’t seen her new place at all. So we went over there and had some pizza and beer. Their roomate was pretty cool and had a ton of neat vinyl. A little too much Donavan, but none the less a great collection including some primo Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett records. Needless to say, we missed the movie. But Sunday was a productive day. Emily worked in the garden and David and Gordon came over for some BetaTron rehearsals. It’s finally coming along in a direction that is palatable and finally the communication is happening. It would have been nice to be outside with Emily and help with the garden, but the rock had to be done.

Last night I headed out to Acorn which is an egaltarian community in the middle of nowhere Virginia. Actually it’s in Mineral, Virginia. I got there in about 2 and a half hours. I was hired to run sound for Eric’s band Mass Transit. But kinda ended up running sound for one other band, too. I didn’t mind so much, as it’s what I do and I do love it. So they had all this great food and energy and were so goddam nice. To top it off Emily had been soliciting this place to me over a year ago. It actually seemed like a cool idea. Completely drop everything we’re doing and move out to the country and live off what we make. Sounded like a great idea at the time, but I think we’re on a better path right now. Anyways. The show was really good and I really wanted to camp out there like everyone else to keep with the great vibe, but I had to get back home to clean up my studio for the band that is coming in tonight from Cleveland. Oh and did I forget to say that Virginia is all sorts of fucked up. Their signs are all ass-backwards and not correct. Goddam them and it taking me close to 4 hours in getting home last night.

Oh yeah, and we signed the contracts for buying that house in DC this week.
