Man, I used to update this thing all the time. Maybe it’s time to start doing that again. Yes, that seems about right.
I got my Fun Fun Fun Fest ticket today:
I’m totally excited to see Devo, Snapcase, Mastadon, Bad Religion, The Hold Steady, Monotonix, The Gories, Cap’n Jazz, and the Dwarves. I’m suspicious about Weird Al Yankovich, but I’ll probably catch a little bit of his set anyway. It can’t be too bad, I don’t think (granted this is coming from the same guy who stood through an entire confusingly stupid hour of Andrew WK spoken word).
I turned 29 four days ago. Yep, still getting older. Here’s why I felt older today: In addition to Fun Fun Fun Fest, I’ll be seeing the Pixies and Guided By Voices in September. These are all advance ticket purchases. I felt old because there are tickets involved for things I’m not even going to do for another 2-3 months. Look at all that planning ahead. Fuckin’ old fart!
Things have been pretty chill for awhile. I started working from home in February and I’ve been exercising a lot more. I started running again. I haven’t done a lot of that in the past few years and the running has started to feel really good to me again. I like listening to music, focusing on the run and my pacing, and being out in the sun when I get the chance (if it’s really hot out, I run after 9pm when the sun goes down). It feels good too. I go five days a week and rest two days. Usually I try to keep my running days as the same days that I’m working because it’s especially nice to leave the house for 30-40 minutes following work after being home all day long. I may be spending a lot more time at home than I used to, but I make sure to get out of the house as much as possible when I can.
