six strings that sing, wood that hums against my hipbone

I've been enormously musical lately. And not in the sense that I'm working as a therapist, as I did for a while and had limited time for myself musically. Rather I've had time to indulge my musical needs. I've played the guitar for at least 2 hours each day for the past few weeks... I'm finding I'm only thinking of about 8 songs, and needing to look up others in my book for inspiration. I've also been in the mood for old Ani DiFranco songs (from the first 2 albums) because they're so simple with just her and a guitar, and not that penchant for horns she's had for the past few years. And I'm ALWAYS startled when I hear "Pictures of You" (Cure, not AD) in a commercial for HP. But it makes me bust out my Disintegration album, and sends me back to that place I don't necessarily want to be... However, in travesty notes, I just today learned that my Disintegration CD is nearly destroyed with skips and scratches of unknown origin. I think I have to buy a new one.

Of all things, I might be ready to look for an open mic that doesn't necessarily get on you for playing covers for your whole set.

Fantastic lightning show today.

you should be proud of yourself. it's not just any fan that will wear out a cd. it's the borderline OCD superfan. my Muse - Absolution cd is nearing its end after only a few months. yikes.
