Well this week is a whirlwind of social activity. An early dinner last night with my brother and nephew, a dinner tonight with a drummer who used to play in my band, a lunch tomorrow with a friend from the dayjob, a bandjob on Friday(see Gigs)and then a get-together on Sunday in Bloomington.
This will probably be followed by a week in which I hardly leave the house or see anyone. I am, by all accounts, an ambivert by nature. This means I'm somewhere between an introvert and an extrovert . I can be outgoing for awhile: Sam Crain, damn glad to meet you!(that was Sam Crain, he was damn glad to meet you)--but then I get overloaded and have to get the hell away from people. Recharge those batteries..
Some new stuff on YouTube. They're starting to post some different playalongs, which gives me more to work with. The John Scofield stuff is fun. He's not my favorite player, but I like what he does. I like that slightly dirty tone as well.
Scofield is to me like an episode of Seinfeld or a bottle of Heinekken. Not my favorites, but I'll certainly enjoy them if that's what's happening.
Well I guess that's my news. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. 'Bout time for that second cup of Morning Joe, and my other morning ritual Lumosity.
I've been signed up with them for a couple years now, doing a 'training session' of 5 different games every morning. Three of the games I've topped out on(even though I can't always get a perfect score), and others I'll be working forever..
Okay. Happy Wednesday to you(or hump day, if you prefer). Ich bin outa here. More later.
