I have a ridiculous amount of work to do, with this blog, with my music career, around the house, etc. I also have to proofread a book for my Dad and I have a friend’s book that I really want to write about, but I don’t want to do a half assed job, so I am waiting till my brain is somewhere close to normal. Between being on the road and canvassing for a political group on my days off, I am reaching a point of exhaustion close to insanity. I’m not complaining. I am just stating cold hard facts. I would much rather have things to work on than not. However, I told my brother that you know you are busy when you are excited about going on a long van ride, because you will finally get a chance to catch up on the reading that you need to. You can’t keep a blog going or write songs unless you are taking in a constant stream of information. Lately I get home and have just been watching The Walking Dead with one eye open.
1. I have noticed that the older, the whiter, the richer, and the more masculine you are, the more unlikely you are to be open to new ideas. Some guy told me today that he votes down every proposition on a ballot that no matter what it pertains to! Another guy told me that public transportation was a scheme of the international elite! WTF?!!!
2. If you are insanely exhausted Public Image Ltd., Rollins Band, and Black Flag are a great soundtrack. All three bands are perfect soundtracks to insanity and are energized enough to keep you going.
3. Way more kids than you would think open the door to a stranger. Luckily I am just trying to inform people, but how do they know I’m not Charles Manson crossed with Dracula? I remember I was always told to not open the door for strangers. With the way I look right now, with a full beard, in serious need of a haircut, and with dark circles under my eyes, I would be a little wary of opening the door to me.
4. When you are tired why do you find yourself staring at the wall, waiting for the last minute to do everything, only to end up running around like your hair is on fire to finally get whatever it was that you needed done? You only end up burning yourself out even further.
5. Why is it that when you are tired that even a simple question, like what is the weather like, makes you want to make a flute out of someone’s femur bone?
As Andy Reid used to say at Philadelphia Eagles’ press conferences, “Time’s yours.”
