I have a half hour set at Bohemia on Tuesday! I think I’ll be on between 8 and 10pm but the set list is not set in stone. Cover is by donation ($5 suggested). Also note that if you Google Bohemia you might get their old address. The current address is 10217 97 Street, Edmonton. I’ll be playing old and new songs, some funny ones and some serious ones. I’m excited!
Yesterday I practiced two guitar songs (Seven Earthly Virtues, My Heart is a spool of Thread) and today I practiced three (The Coming Out Song, Not on the Same Page, Closing the Mine). :D
I practiced four songs on the guitar (Leave a Message Anyway, Cover Me I’m Going In, I’ll Save My Last Rifle Round For You, Stop Being So Fucking Awesome Darren Criss) and one on the piano (The One I Loved When I Was Young). Yay!
The reason I had time to do that is: I got all ready to go swimming and was feeling pretty proud of myself for being motivated enough to do it, but after five minutes of swimming the caretaker of my building kicked me out because apparently she cleans the pool on Tuesday mornings. I was pretty grouchy about it at first but it turned out well in the end!
I practiced Brash and Free on the guitar. I hope to do something bigger in the next few days, like practicing a whole half hour set or editing a recorded song. :)
This is my showing off post. ;) I finally got 100% on one of those nations of the world quizzes! :D This one is on JetPunk. This has taken me like 2.5 months heh, and I’m pretty pleased with myself. :D
I watched this 4 minute video about how reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone park literally changed everything about the park and just sat there for another two minutes, mouth open and teary eyed and amazed. Definitely worth a watch.
it’s amazing how the earth itself changed in response to wildlife…
This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen!
I forgot to post yesterday! I almost said I didn’t do any music yesterday, but actually I practiced The One I Loved When I Was Young on the piano without even planning to, so apparently music is just a thing that happens sometimes LOL. Today I practiced Whatever the Weather on the guitar. :)
Today I only practiced one song on the piano, The One I Loved When I Was Young, but that’s okay! I had a busy day of going to the Fringe (got a poem written for me at the Poem Shop, ate Taco in a Bag, and saw It’s All in the Timing, which was really good, particularly the Sure Thing section,) getting groceries, doing chores, and going to the Edmonton Night Market (saw some comics for sale and some cool old suitcases, and lots of people dancing to the music that was playing). Good day!
