Man, I haven’t posted in a year. I have had a really active year, mentally…emotionally. Et cetera! But I guess I have written about it other places than here. I am going to try and be more committed to posting my art this year. Maybe that can be my thing. Except I won’t tell anyone. The latest “About” is here.
So, I’m kind of embarrassed for being so into Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys last year. It was weird. I mean, I appreciate him as a genius and all that, but I just like a much broader variety of music and the Beach Boys lore…I tire of it. Anyway, this year I am back into bossa nova. I am currently obsessed with Jobim’s Wave. So good. It is perfect and puts me into the best mood so easily. Just like some crazy audio opiate. Mmm.
And then I was digging this because Randall was telling me things from the book on The Replacements he recently read (and some documentary we had on, not that good, but the book sounded good). I like the band and feel like I missed out when they were first out there…Bastards of Young always gets to me, as a person who struggles with feelings of resentment toward my parents (isn’t that awful?!?). And I will always also remember a fun, cute thing Randall said in an email to me about that song. I will keep it private for now.
