Well I figured out in the night that I had food poisoning. Thai food. Never again. Slept all day and all night, then woke up bright and early Tuesday. It’s amazing the difference 24 hours of sleep can make. Lillie got me Saltines and Ginger ale. Have you tried them lately? Wow are they good. But I felt like I was going to die, and even thought for a moment it might feel better to die than to have a stomach ache like that. Tidied up the studio Tuesday morning and listened to a radio station in Boulder, Co. on my phone. I really like listening to different cities and hearing the advertisements, the accents. The app is called 00Radio and you can get it here if you have iphone. Went to the park with the dogs, then to Wykoff, then to Smith and Wiles. Home and cleaned up a bit, sent some letters and emails. The “Our Idiot Brother” soundtrack came out today! And Paste Magazine is streaming it, although they didn’t mention my song in the review. It was mainly about the Fruitbats guy, and Dolly and Willie, and Nina Persson. But I think Lillie and I will go to the theater Friday when the film comes out. Lillie made pasta with spinach and it was yummy, then she made a chocolate cake. I worked on a new Silver Seas song called “Blue Eyes” and read the paper. The scary thing is the oceans now. We need to leave them alone for a while and let them replenish themselves, but so many peoples livelihoods are dependent on fishing. We need to find some other work for these guys. Cleaning up the oceans. An internationally funded ocean cleaning task force. Anyway, I’m not eating wild caught fish if I can help it. Just farm. Oh, and then there was a funny thing about “Arthur”, and I actually got my feelings hurt because none of my friends re-tweeted my twitter about it. Isn’t it funny how easy it is to get your feelings hurt? I try to re-tweet whenever I can, but you know, things go unnoticed. I think there is a general feeling around that my stuff should be noticed more than it is, and I agree with that, just don’t know what to do about it. You don’t want to be that guy that’s like “Retweet! Retweet!” all the time. I would never ask someone to. Oh! I don’t know if I mentioned it, but Pee Wee Herman (Paul Ruebens) wrote me back an answer to my question about weather he laughs at his own movies or not:
daniel, i almost never laugh out loud at myself. although recently i did when i saw a clip of me on the phone in texas trying to prove where i am by singing The STars at Night and holding the receiver outside the phone booth to hear the sound of Texans walking by singing the response.
