The weekend tour

Friday gig, Saturday gig, Sunday gig, I can just hope I'm not gonna screw the second and third one up just like it screwd up the first one yesterday.

But it was fun, more or less. Some people who came pissed me off, but others were really nice, I am sorry I could not stay to hear Magnetická Páska, but I didn't feel really ok. The main point is that we were playing at Modrá Opice /blue monkey/, which is the most punk place in Prague. We went out, where some punks were just smoking around, mumbling "geez, it's SOO EMO in there", while the people inside were like "It's weird in here, so many punks". One of them even hit Adam, which really strenghtened my personal opinion on punk. But actually, hearing "Big! Cheese! Big! Cheese" and "Oi!Oi!Oi!" at the same time was quite a cool experience!

At this very moment, I feel like I kinda hate Maddy, which is a situation I would never expect to come. Happens.

Had a nice day.


Well there were some black spots on the bright canvas of today, but after all, that's what makes the contrast, and you know how much better a picture can look with some extra contrast.

My material self've bought a lilac perfume and is happy
My spiritual self is a bit upset, but on the other hand is willing to ignore all the bad things, for it really enjoyed the afternoon on Petrin with Adam.
My creative self starts to wake up /really/ slowly, but was playing with some pictures I took today and this is what came out of it:

Ms. Brightside

There is an actual chance of playing on the same fest as the Killers.

Yep, that's the main point of this whole post - the Killers are coming to Czech rep. after all, brilliant! They are gonna play on the Rock for People fest, it's in July, and we're participating in that contest which results in playing there or at least getting free tickets /which is awesome, ticket costs 700 crowns, not that I wouldn't invest that into THE KILLERS, but I am a poor loser and this would help me/.
I was thinking if there will be any chance of meeting them in the backstage for other musicians.

And on our last gig, I've almost drumsticked my eye out. /"Hey Brandon, have you seen that pirate chick playing drums in Big Cheese?"/

The origin of love

Stayed home ill. Watched Hedwig and the Angry Inch /again/. Actually when the movie got to the Origin of Love song, I had a interesting flashback. Last time at Adam's place, we were listening to a cd of my favourite stuff, including few picks from Hedwig. And it kinda related to the lyrics. I mean... especially this part:

so we wrapped our arms around each other,
trying to shove ourselves back together,
we were making love

If you're not familiar with the whole story of this WONDERFUL song, check it out here. It's worth it. But I hope at least some of you know the movie and lyrics well enough.

Me rocks.

My tele is so out of tune - the first thing I am going to do tomorrow morning is to buy a tuner.

But still I'd love to post a pic from the last session

Worth attention

Sunflower Caravan

Czech band, three guys, hammond organs, bass and drums. No vocals. Dynamic. Older improvisations I've heard are bit like 60s psychedelia /The Zombies or maybe later The Who/, the new single is like guitarless Ufajr. Which excites me. a lot. give it a chance.

Damn, they play next week, I still consider visiting the festival and then running to our own gig, sounds adventurous.

I need to see this guy live:
Hard to explain this "asshole charisma" of progressive pianists.

Everybody! An applause for my new guy!

His name's Telecaster and he's.. duh, yesss, probably Chinese. He's candy apple red with bright-white pickguard, kinda pale neck, too.

Basically the one I've posted here, but looks SO MUCH BETTER live. And by my side, too. We've already had a ORLs session with TWO guitars, sounded better then -ahem- session with only one .D I hope July puts some pics on her pics site soon. I really like how the two different types of guitars really suit the two different types of us XD and how lame we look with the other one. Eh.

I think Strats, SGs and acoustic guitars are girls, they should be named girl names and be referred to like "oh my new black and white beauty, isn't she wonderful?". Les Pauls, Teles and probably the awful metal-ish Explorers are guys. Bwahaha.

A miracle!

I am sitting!!!

Have to stop listening to Teitur. It's killing me emotionally.

I am just too afraid to start loving someone again. I don't trust in myself and as far as HE is concerned... once again I don't trust him as well. I mean - I just cannot put the thoughts he lightens in me here, for I'm sure sooner or later he'd find them. And in this case it is better to keep them for myself and myself only. I have to act and try to be strong.

To step over this melancholity, I have to say I've decided that I don't want a driving license. I want a guitar. Yep, exactly that telecaster /Squier, not a bad one at all/ that I've posted here once.
I hope I will have it next week, or maybe I will think it over a bit and wait until may, then I would maybe get an amp, too. i know, that'd be more economic, but.. I WANT IT NOOOW... I am too lonely without the chance of playing drums whenever I want to. Rocker's life is so unfair. Damn guitarists.

Aaand, I am working on some ART after a long time, too. I am just trying to work away thoughts of Him, obviously.

One big endorphine!

i've mended Mum's bike and took it out on the way to BC rehearsal, just DELIGHTFUL. I've seen lot of things I've never thought they exist around our rehearsing garage .D and an iron crocodile eating a building!

I bet I won't be able to sit tomorrow.

My ego hurts.

Sunday, March 11, 2007


sorry for the fucked up font size in some of the posts /like the last one/. I am just hopeless when it comes to pasting stuff and making it look the same as the rest of the text. I swear I tried everything, even in the html code. FORGIVE ME oh great readers!

The store has new stuff in stock

The sunny weather makes me listen to indie folkish stuff, that makes one kind of... mellow. Recently I started to listen to two scandinavian artists, Ane Brun and Teitur. She is norwegian, he's from the Faroe Islands.

Her album
Duets is really beautiful, incidentally one of my favourites is the duet w/ Teitur and of course Little Lights, very catchy yet so touching, too. If I had to recommend something from Teitur's work, it would be the album Poetry and Aeroplanes, with the killersong One and Only /one appreciates a disgustingly romantic lovesong from time to time/ and I Was Just Thinking, kinda sad, in a bit cliché way /if you ask which indie folk lovesong is not a cliché - the Casimir Pulaski Day by Sufjan Stevens/

Let's get cliché then.

Teitur - One and Only

I've been wishing on a star but I never could have imagined
I would land just where you are after all this lonesome travelling
Took one look in your eye, reached out to hold your hand
This is when I realized what I could never understand

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

So you wanna be my friend, so you wanna be my lover
With you I do confess I can't be one without the other
That was hard for me to say, I hope I said it right
Which ever, come what may, you see I need to know tonight

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

Do you want to play these cards, do you want to lay them down?
Do you want to run away or do you want to stick around?

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

/And YES, despite all my cynical looks and staying ice cold, I think of Adam, when I hear this. Which makes me even more cynical and cold in the end/

Besides all this I kinda fell for Razorlight, especially
Who Needs Love? , cute contrast, aint it? lol.

How comes...?!?

...that MATT BELLAMY is the sexiest man according to the NME Awards 2007?! I hope you're happy now, Al!!!

Besides that, neither Pete nor Carl got anything, I bet Matt Bellamy just walked around all the NME editors' flats and did dirty stuff with them /I hope he'll at least write some song about it on the next album/, because they've got the best british band one, too. Which is good, after all, I think I've voted for them.

Aaaand, best album is Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not, which is fine, too, at least one of the better ones from the list of nominees.

If you wanna check the complete list of, jump'ere.

Up and down up and down

Went to the seasonal amusement park with Mike and Soc today. Bumped into a guy who looked like Julian Casablancas on the bumper cars - twice. I had enough adrenaline for the whole next week. And enough nausea, too.
And I've met Dysny on the tram stop. Ahem. I've just mumbled "hello-um-good music taste you know-um-gotta go-see ya" and that was pretty all. i can't help it, I like that guy.

Well, I still have someone I like much more than this guy, well, dating a guy from school makes you think weekends suck. While putting jam on pancakes last night he said "I am the master of lubrication" - which made me, my mum, soc and Mike laugh out loud, yes I know, top silliness, but evberybody appreciates a good silly joke from time to time /well, cathack talking about himself living in the "house of horror" - that's what actually one magazine really had written about their house - that was funny and maybe a bit more tasteful XD /

The medical rock

The Otorhinolaryngologists had their first session today!

Well, it didn't go so easily at the start, but eventually I had to admit, for me it was *musically* much more interesting than most of the BC sessions. Finally my word had some weight. We've put some things together, well, lot to do now, but I hope this month I am finally getting my own guitar, so then we can start on the full speed .D oh, this is gonna be....... so..... weird .D

Speak to me!

Don't you remember we wanted to be friends even after all the other feelings pass out?

Come on, don't play it so cool, after all we both know I'll be sorry for it one day.

Seaside Randez-Vous

gosh /so July-or-Amy-like word/.. listening to Queen, ignoring all my duties, falling for *Ego on two legs* and probably you know who I mean, although there are many Egos strolling 'round Alej /my school/ and they'll always do.

I have a killer day tomorrow. Yet had dreamy one today. So. Let's pretend I really do look on the bright side of life. Ahem.

Listen to We Will Become Silhouettes /by The Postal Service/ if you have a chance, the song rocks, but remember to listen to the lyrics, too. oh, or Mika's Grace Kelly /the most poppish song of the whole album, but also the most catchy/ and RHCP Scar Tissue. Addiction.

I know these posts are totally pointless.

I'd appreciate that EMOTIONAL RESCUE Rolling Stones are singing about

Bad mood, people piss me off, but I believe that it's gonna be gone until tuesday /pissed off rehearsals suck/

There's this new equivalent to YouTube, finally czech, I've just seen nicey report from The Prostitutes gig - check it out, they rock. There's also one on First Choice, my former drum teacher's /btw that one who talks them ost in the report/ band. And if you love sick humour, enjoy the first part of original series "Gynecology"/Gynekologie/.

We have a gig ourselves tonight at XT3. With our exguitarist. Not a big love of mine, indeed, I will probably take a big paperbag and pull it over my head so nothing will bother me. Woo. Hoo. But you can come, no problem, XT3 is a nice club, it's just that I am REALLY glad that it's monday tomorrow. They say monday is the day with most suicides.

And I hope July gets well soon, I am even worse psychologist than physician, so I'm afraid there's nothing I can help with, but she'd would probably not let me even if there was.

It's not just the hangover - I mean it's neither physical nor emotional hangover, but the old good PURE moral hangover. What the hell was I doing?

I tried to be like Grace Kelly, why doesn't he like me, oh listening to Mika helps me a lot.

I mean, sometimes there are bugs in your mind you've learnt to ignore or, well, *live* with them peacefully, but, like my friend said, it's just like the alcohol just tried to pull them all from the back of your brain. I hope one day I will end up like Adam Benda or Cathack, I mean, an abstinent. This sucks.
