Edmontonians, take note! [Dec. 14th, 2006|01:48 pm]

I'll be in Edmonton for Christmas. It can't be all family all the time, so consider yourselves forewarned: I'm ready to party.

I consider myself on vacation, so I invite you guys to make the plans. You know me, I'm easy-going.

It'll be good to see some of youse again.

Updates:

Single again. We're still good friends and it was a happy parting.

Started work at The Beagle. It's fun, not too strenuous, good crew. And free food.

I love pomegranates.

I'm writing another song. (It'll be #3.)

The demo for taste/touch is up, minus vocals and polish. Enjoy. http://www.myspace.com/colinsic

[music |Boston - More Than A Feeling]

I start at the Beagle Pub in Cook Street Village on Monday washing dishes. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 4-11ish. I'll be making more money than I accounted for. I'm feeling pretty smug, I gotta say.

It's great. Things are starting to come together nicely. In the last week 3 or 4 things that have been kind of up in the air and stressing me out have settled down and come together. Things are looking good and up.

[music |epic metal on MySpace]

Dad and I had a good meeting/conversation tonight. After a few weeks/months of frustration around work, I'm ready to get shit done. It's been a while since I've felt this energetic about worky stuff.

And, of course, it's been bringing me down in other ways. But it's starting to clear.

I should write the post I planed to earlier, but got distracted.

I find it interesting how one person's self-indulgent personal blog can be cryptic but deeply personal, and another person's self-indulgent personal blog can be literal and steer clear of personal stuff, but you can gain the same amount of understanding of who each person is.

[music |Prince - If I Was Your Girlfriend]

Ever post something on LJ just cause you knew a certain person was reading, and that they might think you were talking about them? And you tried to write is such that they wouldn't know for sure if they were who you were talking about?

Well, I think I've failed.

[music |Tom Waits - Semi Suite]

There are things (and certainly people) that I miss about Montreal, but I'm where I'm supposed to be.

Even when I'm frustrated and tired of being broke, and want things to get fucking rolling for fuck's sake, I know this is where I'm supposed to be, and what I'm supposed to be doing. Things are good, even when they're not that good. This city is home in a way I don't think Montreal ever will or could be. I love Montreal, but it's not home. I love McGill, but it's not what I'm supposed to be doing with my life right now.

And there are people here, aside from my old friends, that I'm starting to kinda like.

[music |When in Rome - The Promise (dub mix)]

I found a collection of rare 80s alternative stuff on SoulSeek. 17 tracks of mid-tempo epic 80s dance ballads from bands I've never heard of. My favourite music in the entire fucking world.

Oh, and I take back all I've ever said about meeting people at a club.

The only reason I'm posting this is cause it's so damn true. Erica, I'm looking in your direction.
