this summer has been really radical.
After a week long stint in michigan where i did amazing things from 10-2am everyday I came back to chicago only to attend the great pitchfork music festival last weekend. I ate surprisingly really good food there including lots of fuze juice drink for a dollar, soy ice creams, blackened catfish po boys, coconut curry, black bean patties, blah blah.
De LA Soul was the best show of the weekend. I saw yoko ono and she was incredibly weird. I will remember that performance forever. Also, of montreal put on a great show while stephan malkamus had no band and played boringly. I liked mastadon and Battles too.
Monday i spent the whole day on the computer looking up shit to do in europe and then i skated infront of the house for hour or so. Yesturday was a my last day at work until september and it was a shitty one for sure. It rained in the morning so i didnt ride my bike which i hate and then there a dozen machines with problems, some of which i couldnt even figure out. By the time 5 oclock came around i wanted to die and had to take the fucking busy blue line home and stand in a crowded car like a schmuck when i could have been flying by cars on my fuji.
I made some spagetti and then rode my bike downtown to the same location i had just came from and met mike out front to watch TOTO. Earlier during my shitty day at work my friend/manager Danial gave me 4 free tickets to the show.
The show was mostly spent buying really expensive booze and waiting for the band to get to their hits. They play really well but their other songs werent as rocking as a 10 minute Rosanna, and then Hold the Line after an extended jam, and finally closing with a perfect version of Africa. It was ridiculous. There were lots of good people watching opportunities i took advantage of . I tried to mimic the guy dancing next to me with 2 drinks in his hands. he had a sleeveless shirt and shorts so i rolled up my pants and sleeves and practiced some of his moves. It felt really good, he must be mystical.
Today im ready to jam. I gotta go downtown to return some equipment and pick up a copy of my film and go to the gym and then we are having a bbq tonight! whoo
