Bowerbirds on SoundDiego TV

Last night I worked at the Casbah, selling merch for ...And You Will Know Us From The Trail of Dead, so I didn't get a chance to see my interview with Bowerbirds air on NBC. I was hanging out with my editor and we were talking about my interview. I have not watched the clip yet, in fact I probably wouldn't embed it if I watch it first, so in case you missed it, here's the clip. I think I will have to drink a couple bottles of wine before I can actually press play and watch myself. I did get some I should've had a mic on my hoodie so The Bowerbirds could share the stick mic, and that I should've used my arm closest to them so as not to turn my shoulder to the camera. I also felt super rushed toward the end because Strand of Oaks started soundchecking in the other room as we wrapped it up. Still, I felt okay about my first time.

I also wanted to repost my Facebook status from last night, because as Darren pointed out, it is something that is normally posted in my Diary posts and not so much on Facebook, but it was an amazing night so I thought I'd share again to anyone outside of the 10% of my friends who can actually see my facebook entries.

I couldn't have asked for a better night of work at Casbah San Diego. The tour manager, Arne, was awesome and even tipped me out at settlement (which doesn't happen often), ...And You Will Know Me From The Trail of Dead gave a stellar performance, singer Conrad was so kind and had great stories about his art and even gave me a super cool print that he drew when he was 17, I got to hang out with friends that I don't see often, I may have been offered a new writing gig with a prominent local mag, I got great feedback on my SoundDiego interview, and I got a safe ride home from my superhero boyfriend Darren Whittaker and am now just waiting for him to come over after work as I listen to the new Joshua James record.

We learned the simplest fact in one of our earliest taught nursery rhymes...."Life is but a dream."

merrily, merrily, merrily living and loving it.
