The Happening

The Pixies are serious about this reunion business. How serious? They finally have a website. Whoo. It looks official, but there’s a strange air of third-partiness about it. From Burned By The Sun. Strange thing – I had a dream last night that the Pixies announced another tour date, April 1 in Toronto, and I had to decide if I wanted to pay $260 for tickets. This says two things two me – 1) My subconscious is trying to play April Fool’s day tricks on me and 2) my subconscious is really really bored. Who dreams about concert announcements? Gawd, maybe I do need to get out more.

Wheat are making their national television debut on March 1 on Last Call With Carson Daly and March 2 on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Polaraid says: “Do not shake it like a Polaroid picture”. From Donewaiting.

Spent pretty much all of last night holed up in the rehearsal space recording. I think it went pretty damn well, with me taking about 50 takes not because I kept fucking up but because it wasn’t sounding exactly as I wanted. And while about 48 hours ago I wouldn’t dare claim that I could play slide… well, I can at least fake it now. Woo-hoo.

I am trying to grow my hair out, and haven’t been to a barber in over two months now. I think I’ve hit that infamous ‘looks shitty no matter what you do’ phase. Which is good in that at least now I have an excuse.

Slow news day, so I talk about my hair. Lets hope it doesn’t come to this again.

  1. Five Seventeen says:

    Claire calls that stage of hair the "ugly duckling phase", which I think means you are going to turn into a swan.

    Glad to hear the recording went well. 50 takes… 1 song?

  2. Sean says:

    Maybe Dre 3000 knew this all along and what he really wants the ladies to do is to lay on a flat surface and avoid bending or twisting.

  3. Claire says:

    Five: No, ugly ducklings in REAL (non fairy tale) life become ducks. Most of them. Rarely swans. Just ducks. And that’s fine with them.

    Sean: A new level for subliminal messages?

  4. Frank says:

    I’m a duck? Are you saying I’m a duck?

    I don’t know how I feel about that.

    Maybe not 50 takes, but a lot. But many were voluntary, not required. And that says a lot for my progress in no longer freezing up in a studio situation.
