One of my favorite music games is called “What other genre could this song slide into?”

A lovely song, this one. So, a country crooner or a country lass? I say gal. I’ll shy away from the big power voices and go with Kacey Musgraves. It’s not the sort of tune that she’s staked her early fortunes on but I would buy it. If I can get a couple hundred thousand others to pay her 99 cents, I’ll bet ya’ a dollar she’ll do it.

I would say “somebody grab the keys and crank the Excuse Making high performance Spin Machine into top gear” but that hot rod started tearing up the pavement before the smoke had hardly even cleared.

To nobody in particular; and to anyone who ever meant something to someone. And, perhaps, above all to all those who never mattered as much as they should have.

I keep thinking this is against my better judgement but I’ve been known to binge watch Spanish bulls dominating two legged creatures as well.

Proxies activate. August 7th… go to BC… watch some bands… side trip to Whistler… a little mountain biking (bypass the first aid station)… head back to Squamish… take in some more bands…

I command you to action proxies!

It’s only fire

I wouldn’t surprise myself if I tap into this album multiple times in the next week or so.

This whole album is wrapped up in making the best, artful, honest attempt at remembrance and reflection as most people could expect – in advance and in response – to what could be an insanity inducing situation.

I have my own Made Up Word Dictionary.

Tonight’s addition? Let’s go with: Seductified. It’s an Adjeverb (of course, what else would it be) and means: to tally victims who exhibit trance-like, suspended in disbelief, freeze-framed fascination.

That’s totally lucid, no?

An extended unwind of a beach day. A cacophonous culdesac. A seared ahi Caesar. It was all kinds of a weekend.

Back to that cacophony for a second… man, people deserve to be happy. We all deserve to be happy. It’s not a given that we will be, nobody ever guaranteed it but if you’re not, why not?
