I’ll be honest, I could’t think a title for this post so I just kind of summed up the first part of this blog.
So I’m sitting here, Friday night…a week in the future from last Friday…a week in the past from the next Friday in the future. I’m in present time that will become the past. A legacy. Time always shares common, but different moments…yet never stays the same. It’s a static Before, Now, and After. Maybe someday we’ll learn to break that order. Or Maybe It’s better if we didn’t. There’s a lot of things that we started doing I think we should of never started even with the benefits. I feel like humanity is regressing in personality, emotional response, and overall interest in life. We either live for an end result/what comes next or dwell in times that can’t be erased or changed. We don’t really ever live for now. I don’t mean like “live for the moment” now go run down I-95 naked for 20+ miles (but by all means if you want to…,) just not only be content, but appreciate what’s going on at this moment. I won’t lie, I’m horrible at this. However, I’m aware of it and trying to be better at it. There’s no point in living in a place that doesn’t exist yet.
So here is me living in the moment…for better or for worse (probably for worse.) Plain ol’ me! ps I’m pointing at the strategic positioning of our barimbau
There’s a really good episode of Futurama where Fry, Bender, and Professor Farnsworth go so forward in time they end up going to the end and restarting. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it! I recommend all Futurama episodes actually.
Speaking of Futurama, I have this really weird thing with comedy. Not all comedy, but for the most part comedy makes me feel uncomfortable. It’s not because I’m offended or I don’t think it’s funny. I love laughing…and my sense of humor is weird. I’m not going to try and explain it. As far as comedy shows go or standup comedy, I don’t like the format, it makes me anxious. I guess I’m so used to serious drama mind twisting perplexing out of this universe shows and/or stories that comedy doesn’t sit well with me. I’m not joking when I say it makes me nervous! I really can’t figure out why. I wonder if there’s anyone else like this? I have a few shows I feel comfortable with and love that could be considered comedy such as South Park, Futurama, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and…I’m sure there’s maybe one or two others. Part of me thinks it is because I never grew up watching standup and such? I don’t know. It’s like I have a really strong dislike towards it! When I watch something I like feeling comfortable. I feel comfortable in imaginary worlds(that are presented as imaginary not like “reality” TV,) or watch shows that make me think. I should probably not think so much, especially about this ….but it’s always been an issue for me! Guess you can add that to the list that makes me weird :p
That was bit of a sidebar rant… anyway… I’m really excited about Illusionarium! I’m also excited about the e-mails and questions I have been receiving about it. I’m glad you’re interested because it makes us more driven! For those of you that do not know, Illusionarium is a music project that is compromised of myself and Jeff Willet. The only “updates” I really have is that it’s going to not just be a progressive album, but a true concept album. The sounds will speak words. I think it’ll bring back the meaning that music is a universal language I can guarantee that there’s going to be no lyrical singing for the simple reason there will be no need to. Whatever “message” or communication that would be between Illusionarium and you (the listener,) will be conveyed thoroughly through all the colors Illusionarim’s music will unfold. I’m truly excited! It gives me something else to daydream about besides all my projects due by April 30th.
What else? Hmm…I’m thinking of taking up a new instrument. Although not entirely sure what. Maybe something wind oriented? Maybe I’ll make up one.
