happy new year. i know its cliche to say it, but i really can’t believe the speed at which this year has gone by. 365 have come and gone and to tell you the truth, i don’t really recall a year going by this fast before.
or this slow.
i’m not going to try and recap everything that has gone down this year. firstly, because if you’ve been paying attention, you already know that it was, just like every other year, filled with lots of my whining, lots of mediocre music, and lots of 13 hour days. the year 2000 will ultimately go down as the biggest letdown of all time. not because it was uneventful. hell, plenty went down in Y2K, but what didn’t happen was what people had been promising for years, decades, centuries even..,
the fucking world did not end.
and it probably won’t end this year either. the simple truth of it is, we want to believe that the world will end when the atom bomb or the y2k bug, or this thing or that thing comes and destroys us all. i got news for you. the world wouldn’t be over. we would, but not the world. there’d still be the bacteria.
and dick clark of course. that motherf*cker be drinkin ambrosia with zeus and shit…
it was ambrosia that the deities drank, right? i don’t think it was jack daniels. immortality through whiskey.
its something to ponder.
the second reason i am not going to recap the year’s events is because my parents are waiting to order chinese food until we get our asses over there. chinese food? you ask.
hey i don’t get it either but i ain’t gonna complain when i be gettin free beef on a stick.
i hope you like the new design. i do. its my late christmas present to you all. and of course your late christmas present to me will be your purchase of my new album “Ascent” available at mp3.com. (and by the by, if you want to order it by check and you see me on any sort of regular basis you do not have to pay for shipping and handling.
anyway, off i go to party hardy with the folks, flip incessantly between the drunken parties being held on tv, and to make more new years’ resolutions i can’t keep (last year i resolved to play one live show by the end of this year. it don’t look likely that’s gonna happen…)
oh well. have a happy new year.
