life can be weird

i ran in to my ex-s roomie yesterday. then someone mentioned him to me. they said, hey. was glad to finally meet him a month ago. haven't seen him since then. i didn't have the nerve to mention that we broke up so i made up something nice to say about him. then yet another person asked me how he was doing.

life works in strange ways.

another buddy told me how three different people in a 24-hour period mentioned some old cult flick he had to see.

things that make you go hmmmm.

i spent a childhood trying to be in the olympics as an equestrian

so here's some pics i scanned in just for fun.

we got her when she was 17 months old. it's not typical for mares to be utilized in competition but Dom Rossio's Gilda was obviously amazingly talented... Even at 17 months old when we purchased her. I broke/trained her.

Here's a newspaper clipping with Gilda:

Prior to this, I lived in Taegu, Korea and rode a horskie named 007:

And one of the buggers that started it all for me when I was nine was named GT:

Booker T. Jones: Booker T. and the MGs

I listened to an interview on NPR with Booker T. Jones. He was part of the staff band on Stacks Records out of Memphis. He was present at the discoveries of both Otis Redding and Bill Withers. He also worked with Rita Coolidge. I found this picture of when I spent a day hanging out with Rita Coolidge as a kiddie. Enjoy. It's hard work to be this cool. No really. Her drummer is to my left.

By the way, not to short booker t. he's just astoundingly talented. there's so many great tracks that came from him. not to mention he played maybe a zillion instruments.

latest and greatest

i have three days or so to decide if i'm sticking with my apt. i have had to have no less than 15 land lord visits in over a year. i am considering moving out to the beach. recently, i was reminded of a previous life in which i wanted to get a masters in physical oceanography. i even had support for the program.

it was with my alma matter... which happens to be in the top 2-3 in the US for this sort of pursuit. however, i couldn't stomach the idea of even 1 more month in southeastern va. i remember to this day driving with my car packed to NOVA cackling with happy laughter the whole way in the midst of a snow storm.

i am in discussions with a company in london as well. they are willing to pay top notch as well as relocation expenses. a london in-person interview wouldn't be too bad either. and it would be great for my DJ career. i would be locked down for two years.

i haven't done any of the blogging from big sur. *yet*. but i will. i have been hiding out from life recently spending most of my days with friends who i adore. their love and support has gotten me through.

look for me to be out gigging again. i have a few irons getting rather toasty in the fire.
