Has it been a week already?

Sonofabitch. I was going to start being better about updating this thing and I thought I was doing a good job. Now I look and it will be a week tomorrow.

How can day to day life be so slow and boring but the blogsphere can see a week pass by in the blink of an eye? It's not like I'm not on this damn website every day checking SK and other blogs (indraeek, etc.). Oh well. Maybe this is the start of a good run...

One nice thing lately is the interaction of my cats. I had read a while back that cats who know each other sniff each others' noses whenever they meet each other. My two cats have been together for close to three years and they were still sniffing each others' butts. Well, in the past couple of weeks they have started sniffing noses! Maybe they are starting to get into the groove of this whole thing. Granted, they both have been fixed (at least they don't have to worry about any Australian football injuries - ha!) but I've still wondered if there would be any territorial issues with them since they are both tomcats. So far so good...

Of course, everybody knows by now there is no Church U.S. tour this fall. Oh well. I guess on the bright side it saves me some money and some vacation - but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't totally bummed. I'll certainly hold out hope they will do something next year. They're too damn good to give the U.S. one last fantastic electric send-off before they decide to stop touring internationally (whatever "internationally" means for a band like The Church).

Oh well - no package from Churchmerch today. I can't wait to give Deep In The Shallows a spin.

Take care all...

Looking for something to remind me

Well today was going to be the day I got back into the swing of things...

But, alas, I'm way too tired to attempt anything remotely constructive (damn sleepless night last night).

Oh well, there's always tomorrow!

One funny thing today - in dealing with some legal crap I had an email addressing me as Mister.
I still think it sounds weird to have anybody calling me Mister. I guess I should be used to it but I sure as hell don't think I'm old enough (or responsible enough) yet for anybody to be calling me by any sort of formal title!

2000 long years and they're all leading up to tonight

Well, well, well. Look who is back.

Sorry - no excuses for vanishing for the past month. It was just one of those months.

Have you ever gone through a phase where you really didn't feel like doing anything that requires any thought or energy? Well - that is where I have been (I think).

Kind of got out of the whole blog thing. Still checked SK's blog religiously. I am so addicted to that it's ridiculous. (I also try to check every day from multiple computers to boost his ratings but I'd hate to admit to cheating. Ha.).

S0 who knows where the past month has gone. I'm certainly the one to blame. Part of it is probably spending too much time shopping (CDs, etc.) on the Internet. Too much time and too much money. Maybe I should return to blogging to help save money!

It is certainly nice to hear about the new solo projects from Steve. It's also great to see his new art. The new SK art is always tempting. I should put a few more pennies aside a bit more often into my SK art fund!

If anybody is interested in his art I can certainly attest to the whole thing being a wonderful experience. The art is so much more vibrant in person and dealing with Holly is nothing but a pleasant experience.

Is everybody else as bummed as I am the US tour looks like it is off? Man that sucks - especially for me since I had plans to see them in Europe this spring but had to call everything off because of our wonderful government being late in getting me my passport. It was a lot easier for me to take since I "knew" they would tour the US this fall but now that looks like it is not going to happen. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they only tour Australia from here on out. I have no idea how much it costs for them to do the US or Europe but it certainly has to be a lot more than Australia since Marty is the only one they have to import!

We'll see. If they just tour Australia I guess I'll have to head way south someday. I have to go there sometime in my life, right? I can't think of a better reason to head to Australia than to see The Church!

I placed my dutiful order for multiple copies of Deep In The Shallows. I'm certainly interested in hearing some of the different versions/edits/mixes of the songs. I'm sure I've heard them all but it will be nice to have them all collected in one nice place. Sue C is right - buy some as gifts for family/friends! Great music in a great package - can't be beat!

Take care - I promise I won't be gone for another month.
