jacking the ball

johnny herndon (machine) is the bomb ass, ok i am just a little biased and jaded, but just a littleSoundtrack of the day: the Sea and Cake, the Wallflowers, Van Halen, Elvis Costello (the real king), Mike Watt, Bob Mould and the Smashing Pumpkins (circa 1988)- thanks Karin.

The past few days I have been under the weather. I never really considered myself sick. Maybe that helps with getting better more quickly. I think it does. It’s all in the mind. I just hate coughing and when my ears kick out. Hearing is such a part of my entire being. So when my ears go, I get mad frustrated with myself. Maybe that is why I got addicted to Robitussin my 3rd year in school. Or maybe it was my addictive personality. Maybe it was Tennessee. Blame it on the rain, yeah, yeah.

Last night I got a call from my dope friend (not in the literal sense!) Skippy from my 4th college (my alma mater.) It is always super great hearing from him. He’s almost done with school. He has one more semester left and then he can get the hell out of dodge (TN.) He is one of those friends that you got to watch and see him do the things you had just done a year or so before. Watching growth from the outside is a wonderful thing. There are a lot of cool things about it. One being the fact that *you* are on the right path. And two, that you are not the only one. And three, that there is someone out there that is more obsessed with the Beatles than yourself. Sometimes it amazes me, impresses me, and motivates me. I love seeing people like this, because I know they, of all people, will make something of themselves. Motivation is key. Asperations for yourself are key.

I think I got a little too introspective today. I am in this transition period in my life where things don’t really make much sense so holding on to what made sense in the past is comforting these days. Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday afternoon!
