Mix It Up: Dance Outdoors

I need a change of venues. Why do I groan at the thought of dancing in my living room? Becuase I’m fucking tired of dancing in my living room. Alone. Again. 

I need to dance on the beach, under the trees, in the rain, and with other people. So I’m upgrading from a basic Napster subscription to Napster on the Go, through which I can download all the music to which I have access. And I”ll buy the i-Podish PC Napster compatible thingamadoogee that I can clip on my belt, so that I have a portable music station.

Rock on. Literally. I can’t wait till Sony and Napster customer service centers open, so I can order my shit already.

Oh yeah, and guess what? I also decided to buy a guitar and learn how to play. Because putting a band together and keeping it together is a big fucking pain in the ass, given how flaky and drama-queen and ego-maniac musicians are. I’m tired of the juggling act, and it’s hard to accompany myself on bass or keyboards alone.

But a guitar? Once I learn how to play, I can accompany myself. Anywhere. Even at the edge of the ocean. And that’s just fucking cool.
