we drive all night thru darkness and wild terrain

the gig in nebraska was a good show

not having been eating much lately i was surprised at how hunger

can help lift your energy on stage

so i had a good night and the audience likes us

then that huge black drive through the night and morning to get here

we arrive and we do a radio show recording some stripped back songs

st louis is hot and steamy but its ok

tomorrow it all starts up again

the last 3 gigs for awhile

fly home sunday night

get in tuesday morning early

man i’m looking forward to that

this is a strange life out here

sometimes it pulls you right in

other times it keeps you at an arms distance

so much fucking blah blah blah

waiting around

looking for things you keep losing

people borrowing stuff that never come back

trying to keep a track of everything that random capricious chance dishes up daily

today i feel neither up nor down

just alright

and alright is fucking alright

    There’s nothing like the feeling of coming home. Especially when one lives by the sea and sea gulls. Next week you’ll be back and everything will feel like a dream. Being on the road is a tough life and I hope you can heal from it. Regardless, Rich and I look forward to seeing you in Rapid City. We promise not to be emotional vampires only observers.

    What they saw was not the perfect sight. Just their own face reflected in the night. But I’m tryin so hard just to tell you it’s now. And the video rolls up like Gem in that empath episode. So true. Our loneliness on this ball in space. The things you want they never can be found….. I always thought tear it all away was the most churchy song

    The world without David Bowie feels noticeably emptier and sadder. Less is possible. An era has vanished. My era. Our era. I feel more and more like a lingering survivor. I don’t know if his death has played a role in your recent moods, but it still weighs me down sometimes. The helmsman has been lost and the rocks of shore approach.

    No show in Minneapolis this tour so 3 middle agers road tripped to Sioux City. What a weird place to see The Church and The Furs. Walking through the Hard Rock and seeing the memorobilia-thinking The Church is a better band than most here (Entwistle green suit and bass was cool)The crowd was sparse-but you brought it the entire set-Steve was a Rock star-and I am so glad we made the trip. Thanks for being a great band!
