- I slept through the night!
- This MAY be the last fat, stress monster work day as the book MUST go to press tomorrow – the grande event is Monday night. Client cutting things a big close, you say? Yes but her relationship with her printer is tight. She has total faith that Paula will pull this off. And she will.
Yeah, it was awesome but everyone and their motherfucking bestie was all THIS IS THE GREATEST CONCERT MOVIE OF ALL TIME!!!!!! I was not so blown away. I know – heresy! To my mind, Stop Making Sense was/IS TOTALLY the best. OK Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That! – The Beastie Boys 2006 concert film was pretty sweet too. Yup, I was deaf by then but it was a beat heavy show – I could feel it.
How would I feel about The Last Waltz now? Would Robertson's guitar chops knock me sideways? Would Levon's voice turn me into a pool of melted butter? Would seeing the flick on a TV better than the late '70s, 13" B&W that I watched it on, make a difference? I bet it would.
BUT I can’t. The Band’s final hurrah is frozen in my mind on a tiny, grainy screened, wicked low fi set. That simple twist of fate made reading his beautifully written memoir hard.
I'm curious – how many things can I mourn all at the same time?Reading a murder mystery now – feels safer, less triggery.
NOW, back into the, possibly shark infested but probably not, Pixel Pool. Coffee’s made, I have a cookie, I’m ready to ROCK!
