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.
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.
