Grub Street


Luxury

I would like to spend a day at a spa. Massages, facial/body cleanses, steam rooms. I’ve never been to a spa and it never occurred to me until now to go to one. Maybe I can make it happen around my birthday (till then seems unlikely!).

I would also like to start doing yoga and/or pilates. I don’t know how I would find time to do that.

I suppose a lot has happened in the past few weeks.  Spring is here?  I recorded an album in Michigan.  Going out there sort of made me want to move to the middle of nowhere and have a giant house and dog and build my own recording studio.  Not right now; maybe when I reach my early 30s.

 Tonic is a nice venue.  We played a good show there.  Feathers is a good band.  They play sophisticated, carefully-crafted music.  Compelling and enjoyable.  Interestingly, Feathers shares members of Witch, the "stoner metal" band with J. Mascis as the drummer.  I saw them months ago open for Dead Meadow, a band I've since lost interest in.

 Last night at the gym a woman accused me of stealing her timeslot on the treadmill.  It's really ridiculous because I watched her sign up for it 15 minutes after I did.  It's this kind of daily bull shit I have trouble dealing with.
