"do you know how F_*# much these lasers cost?!"

sitting here on my lunch break trying not to forget a song i'm working on. sure wish i had my laptop to put a simple track down, of course, being that i'm at work, i don't exactly have my guitar next to me either. hmm... troubling.

Saw FOOZER this weekend. flew down to orlando and hung out with glenn, did a little more road trippage to tampa bay whereupon we rok-d. amazing. although both bands played basically singles, it was still unbelievable to see two juggernauts of rauk up on stage in one fine evening. Mr. Grohl was his usual unassailably vulgar self (as we come to love and expect), and hilarious to boot. nate mendel was rockin' in his usual way, tilting back and forth like a weeble wobble, and at one point dave and taylor switched places and dave played some amzing drums. ALthough this was only in matching the weez explosion, who clearly were enjoying themselves thoroughly, switchin' it up a bit having scott sing "in the garage", brian singing "why bother" and pat rokking out "photograph"{ (which is a song i never truly liked that much, but with mr. wilson on guitar and rivers on drums...) - pat really rocked it. Of course then rivers ran out into the middle of the arena in the darkness and stood on a podium behind the mixing booth and sand island in the sun acoustic. in the dark. with christmas lights everywhere. i, for one, at this moment have no voice.

now i just have a few more weeks till nada surf, mates of state, built to spill and decemberists come. individually, of course. not all shows can have multiple amazing bands like the foozer show did. unfortunate this is.

today though, i have to buy:

Nada Surf - "The Weight is a Gift"
sigur ros - "Takk" (thanks)
Juliana Hatfield - "Made in China"
