Moved into a new apartment last Friday, just got internet hooked up today. I’m listening to Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto, smoking bud, and watching Ku Fu Hustle with the sound muted and the subtitles on. Great movie, just saw it the other day for the first time. As well as Shawshank Redemption; I can’t believe that I waited that long to see such a fantastic movie. Right now the top boss of the Axe Gang is prancing around with an axe and a tophat on. It looks like Moulin Rouge with the sound turned off. My bank account is nearly finished, after having paid six months of rent, a year of broadband internet access, and having bough necessary things for a new place. I haven’t worked in a week, also. It’s been pretty great having absolutely nothing to do all day, but it’s excellency (is that an adjective? is starting to wear off and I’m looking forward to spinning again. I go to Langzhou the day after tomorrow (Friday) to play a house gig. I think I’ll be there for 2 days. Looking forward to checking it out, I’ll bring my camera, but I’m concerned that no one will be able to speak any english there. Even if that’s the case, it’ll be a prime practice session for nothing but Chinese. I’ve gotten a lot of jazz megaposts from WDMA in the last few weeks. The jazz torrents generally include 6-12 jazz albums on MP3. I’ve listened to so much jazz in the last week it’s ridiculous. I’ve gotten pretty fond of Canonball Adderly, although I’m not sure that any single jazz album that I have is as excellent as the one I’m listening to. Maybe it’s because I’ve heard it so many times and I’m so familiar with it. 30 minutes later – I’m getting distracted and can’t focus on this right now. I’m going to conclude this journal entry.
