What a Weekend and...things Ahead..
Some bullet points -
1. New York in and of itself always seems to do something to me. This time all I talked about was moving there... and this time it seemed like it was just bound to happen.
a. Let me embellish on that a little - I love Baltimore. I adore my hometown I do. I know more about Baltimore and it's history than almost anyone I know. I have some of my best friends here and I feel comfortable in any place at any time and I know where all the good things are. But... I'm tired of it. I'm just tired of the bad forced music, bad bars, bad art, and just lazy crappy lifestyle that goes on here. There is such a sucking sound of apathy for people who are afraid to take a shot at other things in life. There is just a large vacuum of morons and people who hold the intrinsic value of "basic mediocrity" way too high on a pedestal. Everything in NY and maybe even Boston feels alive to me... people talk about real things like changing the world and making great music and radical moves. It's exciting to be amongst people that... and this sounds awful... people that may be a little bit more like me than Baltimore can provide right now. I just really feel as though I am outgrowing this town.
2. Craig named me his best man. I am really honored by this and it comes at a really great time in my life (and his of course) when I can actually stand and say "I am ready to be someone's best man." I feel like I could stand straight... and I can't wait to deliver my speech. lol - -
3. Danny's birthday was great. He was a really good host and everyone from the weekend showed up and we drank and fought and toasted and took way TOO many pictures. Cheers to all involved.
4. Tonight at the Ottobar - Jason Dove is releasing more episodes of "DJ's". I hope to be and see you there.
5. Seeing the Giants win the Superbowl while actually being in NY was pretty magical and definitely one of those "sports" moments I won't forget. Even though my wisdom teeth were killing me I still managed to be dragged to Blondies on 93rd and watch the game. It didn't really hit me until some random guy poured champagne over my head and the entire bar was "rockette line dancing" to New York New York. It was a really great game... even a non--hardcore-football fan like myself could appreciate that game.
