The Sun Is Shining But The Sky’s Still Grey

Oh goodness.  I am such a diva.  I’m too intolerant of way too many things.  It’s pretty much to the point I need to be alone constantly.  There are people who are exceptions I suppose.  Queen Hell is definitely one of them.  There are a few others.  A few.

It’s weird being me.  I had no idea it was bizarre to not be able to handle someone engaging me.  I’d rather people ignore me.  I don’t want to talk.  I WILL NOT engage in small talk.  What a pointless endeavour.

If I became the new God of the world, there would be a lot of changes.  The following offenders would immediately be eradicated:

– loud chewers
– loud belchers
– people who fart anywhere but a bathroom
– bullies
– mothers who make the father’s life miserable and use kids against them
– people who get hammered knowing there is a chance they’ll be disruptive when they are
– sensationalists
– anyone who relies on substances to function
– people who don’t signal when driving
– people who sprint for their cars after getting off the GO Train
– cheapskates
– one sided conversationalists

This list in definitely going to grow right along with my high strungness.  I know that.  I just might start another page for it.  I suppose I could do one for things I love too.

I’m having problems making a new album.  I was supposed to go to St. Thomas to do that but the city doesn’t want me.  What city does want me?  Oshawa!  I can’t go back to Oshawa.  I am tired of running open mics and seeing the same old people and hearing the same old songs.  Oshawa is weird.  The musicians there aspire to be huge in Oshawa but nowhere else.  No one wants to do anything original.  They want to sound like their favourite band.  95% of the bands there are so fucking mediocre.

So now I’m in Ajax.  Ajax is ok if not extremely uninspiring.  I’ve decided the next place I am going to live in is going to be an actual house.  I don’t care what city it is.  Writing has taken precedence over music it seems.  I’m fine with that.  I played a show last Saturday and just wasn’t into it.  I will always make music but I think it’s time to think about doing something else.  I’ve been stagnating on a meager pension for thirteen years.

Interviews for the Doug Hell documentary will be starting February 18.  I’m looking forward to this movie being made.  Let’s face it.  We all know I’m my favourite subject.   There is nothing I would love more than to watch a full length movie about me, every day.

Also on my list of things to do is an indie mockumentary.  I’ll need people to act.  I’ll also need songs.  You won’t receive any money.  I’m doing this as inexpensively as possible.  I have to like it too.  I’m not just going to accept any piece of shit song.  I can promise you a sweet movie though.  I don’t think I’m capable of doing anything bad artistically.

Alright guys.  Let me know if you want to contribute in any way.  You know my email.

    About Oshawa – Spot on. Same shit allllll the time. And they wonder why people don’t go out as much anymore. It’s because people know what to expect. Musicians trying to please each other with their recycled trends. All they want is to hop on the bill of out of town touring bands as they stagnate in downtown Oshawa, playing other people’s music.
