    In a music slump at the moment. I hate it. Sometimes I'm just thrilled to listen but lately I've been in a meh area. I'm sure something will pop up.

    I'm always in the green. Kids make a good nice sleep a rolling chart. Maybe it should've just been some 2021 boots cause they're crushing it this morning. Best part of Gigaton is how much these songs have grown adn grown on me. I go back to the album. I go to the live shows and I hear so much more. Man, I love this band!

    I've had "Seven O'Clock" on repeat - there's something about that song that gives me hope.

    I realized the two most listened to albums during Covid have been Folklore nad Wildflowers. It occurred to me they're perfect book ends - one about an honest look at youth and the other about middle age.

    Game On! Chicago Night #2. And this time I actually knew how to operate the system. Am I guilty of never ever reading fine print? Yep. I sure am.

    Listened to an old song this morning, on repeat. Made me feel 16 again. The song, isn't quite brilliant but the sentiment is.

    Night 2 Chicago is mine! Playing Benny while grading finals and it's such a great chill show. I would sell a kidney to see a show like this.

    Alright!! Happy you scored some tix!! 

    Fingers crossed for Apollo! Predictions are looking at fall 2022… could be a long haul. I admire your unwillingness to give up! And am enjoying your daily thoughts (better than just “bump”). :)

    Thanks. Much appreciated. Fall 2022, let it be. 

    "Given to Fly" from Boston 03 came on yesterday and just really fueled my thirst for some live PJ. It wasn't the best, nor the worst - just a solid version all around. Still want that Apollo!

    Wondering how The Earthling shows are going to be staged? Any Eddie solo? Or Eddie and Glen then the rest of the band? I know Beck did something similar to that. Am I crazy that I don't care how many Pearl Jam songs I hear? If he played his solo stuff, some covers, Flag Day and Earthling songs I'd be thrilled. That video of The Earthlings playing "Long Way" was good, it wasn't just a super band backing Eddie; it was a real band playing their songs. Wonder if they have a Bowie cover up their sleeve? I'm excited. And I can honestly say I don't care what I hear.

    Happy December 19th. I watched Scrooged last night and it's just a knock out movie. It captures Dickens' A Christmas Carol not only in spirit but actually following the intended storyline to a T. I always loved the novella because while it takes place on and is centered around Christmas it's a piece about humanity and the goodness we should spread to one another for no other reason than it makes the world a better place. Give it a read.

    I hope all are having a Happy Holiday season. My kids just make this time of year so much cooler. Be safe. Be well. And if a ticket for the Apollo should end up in my theoretical stocking, that would be cool.

    Been loving Benny 03. Just a phenomenal show! I went through a spell where I wasn't into acoustic shows but every time the band has put together a mini set it's awesome.

    Enjoy the holidays. We’re on Covid lockdown. We do most everything right and here I am getting a test on Christmas Eve. Be good. Be safe. And if you’re lucky enough to be with loved ones revel!

    Watched Encanto with the family last night. It's a really beautiful movie about family and perspective. Animated films so often get to the core of humanity, with heft that doesn't seem so dark because they're literally so colorful and leave you uplifting without feeling contrived. When done in live action, it's a fete of brilliance. But I love when it's done so well in animation.

    2022 is going to bring us a lot of great things. Pearl Jam, Earthlings...hopefully an end to Covid (gotta keep hoping right?). I'm looking forward to setlist threads, a new record, getting together with people. There's a lot. Oh, and maybe a little show at the Apollo.

    Entire family got slammed with Covid. Technically "mild" but man "mild" is still gross as hell. No shortness breathing, no hospital. Docs told us without shots it's a lot uglier. Be safe out there.

    Thanks! We are getting there. It lingers. Sucks when it happened but if there was a time when you can have down time and let everyone get healthy with little to no consequence I guess this is the silver lining (if there is a silver lining to losing Christmas, your birthday and anniversary).

    Alrighty people, think positive thoughts. Something good that happened this year. Something positive that happened in the last year, tell your loved ones, tell anyone. People care. People want something positive and good Lord it's like water in the desert, we need it. Thanks for being a wonderful group. People dwell on the negative take the positive and run with it. Be well and enjoy one another!

    I hope everyone is getting home alright. Trying to find band catalogues to explore in 2021. So far I have Black Sabbath on the list. They've always felt a little too different for me, but they're one of the few heavies I haven't touched on.

    Looks like Winter has come. Snow and Zero Degrees. At least we have some comfort food with Eddie and the Earthlings coming this February. Maybe a PJ announcement this month?

    Every year I kick off my Creating Writing class with showing U2's "All I Want is You," as a means of showing the kids interpretation is up to them. It's a great video. It requires zero love for U2 and just an open mind for looking at storytelling. Check it out.

    Been in a Dave Matthews Band groove. I feel because they were so big and their following was less than desirable this group gets a bad wrap. They're a sound band. Very talented.
