So, I ended up not going to the MMW concert in Central park this Saturday. I was ready and I was pumped for it but mother nature had different plans for me. It was grey, rainy and overall a very shitty day. As much as I wanted to grind it out and be the hardcore music fan I used to be, I decided to stay in on this one. The idea of sitting of a patch of wet grass in the middle of Central Park while getting rained on didn’t seem like the greatest idea (even if I got to see some great music while I was at it.)
While at my apartment in Greenpoint Brooklyn, I sat there contemplating “should I stay or should I go?” I decided to stay in when I thought of how much time I will be spending with these guys in 7 weeks and how much music I will get to see them play in much more intimate settings than the summer stage at Central Park. It was then that I realized getting soaked in the rain to see them play a set was not really worth my Saturday evening. Instead, I stayed indoors and watched the movie True Grit with my girlfriend and her son. (Jeff Bridges is my favorite actor!)
I have been keeping up with my practicing and am slowly developing my calluses again. If I can stay disciplined at my practice schedule I think I should be more than ready by for a hardcore week of playing by July 31st. Now, even though it’s only 9:45am here, I think it’s time to go practice some bass. My neighbors may not like it but screw ’em, they should be at work anyway!
