melted mind.

Athfest melted me.
i need a vacation from my self.

These walls have smoked for thirty years
Its really a common fear
The drapes went up with such hot fury
We never had to worry
The corner of clayton is now cinged
This is no way the end
The walls will stand on the roots
Brush away the blackened soot
Mr. Greene guide the ship back home
The groove is deep in stone

long live the Georgia theatre.

i walked by the the ga theatre for the first time today after the fire.
i heard the news on friday am. and it made me ill. i have been in a house fire and it wasn't even that big but to see such an iconic figure charred and windows blown out and the smell of cinged memories once again turned my insides.
i have great memories and gigs from the house of so many bands launching pad. i desperately hope that she can return to the place it has been. My friend and Ga theatre owner Wilmot will surely instill an even greater space for the art of athens. ARU, MMW, Ween, STS9, Galactic, Dub C, Steel Pulse, Basement, The Frog Brigade, Derek Trucks, Pigs on the Wing, on and on and on. I can hardly put into words the amazing things i have seen in that building. the walls and speakers ooze inspiration. how does brick and pine hold the reverberations and not ignite with furious fire. inevitable or a new beginning??
I can't really remember all the details (duh) but i believe one of, if not the first of my athens performances was sitting in for a few tunes with Basement, billed with the Fuzzy Sprouts(?), to a packed housed. what a night. i was floored by the view and the buzz of the place. and mind you this was when it was sort of a dump, before Will bought it. lights, subwoofs, bouncing feet.
A void will be left until it RETURNS. i wish i was capable of donating the funds and means to have it grow back to where it was a week ago.
Please make your feelings known about town that this a vital place for our town.

this music i have found has begun to glow.
montana scare, cut my hair.
laugh at the lights.

got some great feedback.
the crew is loading the buses.

yup strange.

yup strange.
had an odd day.
new boss.
things felt off?
had a long vocal recording session last nite and probably got some keepers but was not totally happy with the attempt. i really believe going into this my confidence in my routes and ideas has to be high and i was sorta low entering. which way to go. you breathe clearly when the air is fresh and clear. empty myself. i will dive in again. i will rectify all that i set in motion.
