friday at work I needed a little pick-me-up so I put in miles davis' live/evil. now I hadn't listened to this cd for awhile and I was blown away by jack deJohnette. my god is he awesome. his drum sound is so big and live and in your face it kills me. about ten minutes in to 'what I say' he opens up a drum solo that will, unless you are dead on the inside, change your life. you will finally have proof that there is a god in heaven. its like a lightning bolt to the balls. I saw deJohnette last year at the flynn playing with a latin jazz group. it was great and all, but he didn't play like bitches brew era stuff and I guess I was a little disappointed.
my parents divorce is final now after 4 years of separation. my dad just re-wrote his will/living will/power of attorney and asked me and my older brother Gordie (gord-bob) if we'd be executors and all that. we agreed so my dad took us out to dinner at franklin countys favorite restaurant, the abbey. I mean they have a salad bar AND appetizers! it was pretty good in a redneck kinda way. we got to talkin about bill o'reily and the recent sex offender thing here (fry em all was the consensus) and movies. before I thought to hold my tongue I told everyone that I just saw 'brokeback mountain' my sister in law chrissy said (no kidding) 'I'm sorry' and gordie gave me a look as to say 'you still like girls, right?' I shot right back with my trusty 'I do and someday i'd like to have sex with one again' look. how long do you have to go before being considered a virgin again? I must be almost there.
anyway it was kinda morbid and sad and interesting going through my dads will- 'its all pretty basic unless I die before spike turn 18' thats only six months from now, dont talk like that for christ's sake! my dad seemed really concerned that we get some kind of inheritance. it was really sweet and at one point he got a little choked up I think. who cares about money? this is my dad.
well I made soup and i'm going to fry up some tofu (thanks michelle!) and danger mike and fast eddie and ky-ky and I will eat like kings before going to see the night birds in winooski.
