I forgot this existed. I live in vancouver. My life sucked for a while, but now it rules very hard. I like Coltrane.

3:34 pm - from HOW TO PRACTISE "STICK CONTROL"
A WORD TO THE ORCHESTRAL DRUMMER:- Do not let the word "rudimental" frighten you nor prevent you from putting in a normal amount of practise on on power, high-hand practise and the open roll. This will not spoil the light touch, delicate shading or fine-grained effects demanded of you in modern musical interpretation. To the contrary, by giving you a better control of the sticks, it will enable you to produce even finer and more delicate effects than heretofore.

there are some really amazing folks out there. there's not much more to say.


I have an anxious feeling. I guess I have a sort of vague plan for the future shaping up in my mind, and I need to get my shit together to make it happen. I need to focus and stop being distracted by everything. I need to focus without neglecting my social life as well. I need to go to bed because I'm overtired.


good memory for the future-- sitting with richard and sari and romi at the water in the backyard of the old mansion looking across and talking about canada, and plans, and travel, and richard strumming nice sad songs on an acoustic guitar. romi sat in goose poo. making whole wheat pasta and sitting in the kitchen at 3am laughing, overtired, fading and talking about how much moments like this mean to us. falling asleep in the dark in the middle of a conversation with rich and dreaming the rest it in my sleep. drum battles the next morning.

been having a nice time on the island. i did alot of hiking along the galloping goose trail in the last few days. today i'm heading back to vancouver probably. or maybe i'll just go to beacon hill park and sleep instead. there are alot of ducks there, and some geese, and herons (in the beacon hill heronry), and wild peacocks that roam around. the weather has been great and is supposed to last for another few days. weehaw.
i'll probably start heading home in early october.
