It's been hard for me to keep up with everything that's been going on lately. So much is happening... music videos, day jobs, mini-tours, 7SR projects, PSA jobs, lease arrangements... not to mention, we do sorta have personal lives... (kinda).
The song "Spinning Plates" by Radiohead has been frequently playing in my subconscious as I imagine a caricature of myself frantically running around on a stage attempting to keep 25 plates balanced on their broomsticks.
I don't think it's a unique feeling. Everyone goes through it sometimes.
On the way home from work today my car nearly caught fire. I got a new exhaust system installed last week. Everything seemed to be working out just fine... but then today my flex pipe started sizzling and sending an awful burning-rubber smell through the heating vents. Yum! I had to pull over once, but I made it home without any major consequences. I'm not sure what the problem is... but I'll figure it out.
Must. Reach. 250,000.
Luckily, the van seems to be in much better shape. It's a good thing too because on Thursday we're leaving to play a few shows in Michigan. The first one will be with Julio Gomez and Michael Riley at Mulligan's in Grand Rapids. The next show will be with the Wildfire at Basement 414 in Lansing. And the final show on Saturday will be an extended acoustic set at Liberty Street Brewing Company in Plymouth (which is near Detroit).
I know I keep promising pictures and audio from Dina's camp with Victor Wooten. They're coming soon... she just needs some time to sort through them all.
Nice try Hawks :(
