Friday April 5 2019

[i]

Around 8:30 or 9 a.m. we all wake up in Phil’s studio apartment. We discover via email that the First Fridays show has been cancelled due to inclement weather, which means we don’t have to leave so early now. Some of us drop back to sleep and others venture off.


It’s a wonderfully chilly and rainy day as we slog through DC city traffic. Dropping off Phil at his new apartment. I help him move a couple tubs of CD’s and personal things. It was nice seeing him.


Onward we go in route to home. Stop at a McDonald’s for brunch. I chomp down on a breakfast bar and sip on Earl Grey Tea.

...

Because of the event cancellation we decide to move the show to Charlie’s. Between the four of us we start tapping on our phones to spread the word about the show.


Bobby and I switch spots at some point so I can lie down and nap. Meanwhile, we cross the Monitor Merrimac tunnel and into Norfolk. We depart ways with the van/band until tonight.


Back home. Warming up some leftovers for dinner. Ana gets off work and we discover the cat is absolutely nowhere to be found. It’s very strange cause he’ll usually be walking about when we’re both home. The whole thing is unsettling cause we sense he’s gotten outside somehow. I start searching around the neighborhood while the rain is consistently pattering down. Mom comes home and we suddenly hear Elvis meowing out back. We find him hiding between two cinder blocks right next to our back patio. We figure he got out when mom briefly opened the back door to inspect a racket from the birds.


At Charlie’s for the show. We wanted to make it a worthwhile trip for Levitation Room and we got a decent turnout of people here. We put on a great show. They put on a great show. Well done.




Outside when putting some stuff in the van I notice the floor of the van is wet and there’s a leak whenever it rains. I’ve tried to tell Josiah about this before when it soaked the bottom of our futon mattress and now it’s done it again. Sometimes he tends to brush things off so nonchalant and it bothers me. Having a leak in the band van with our gear and stuff at risk of being damaged by water is a real problem. We get into an argument about it. I could care less about the futon itself – I just want the band to have a successful tour without having to worry about things of ours getting soaked. He’s stubborn. I’m stubborn. It’s another unsettling moment of the day where I’m feeling flustered and without solution.


Back home. Settling down. Something else happens between Ana and I – an emotional debacle. And thus, the third unsettling moment of the day. I just feel so out of control.


Later, in my room. Ana lies down snapping photos of the cat in the cupboard. In response to all the turmoil today I say to her, “I just want things to go smoothly. I wanna be understood. I don’t wanna be misunderstood.”

Waking up at 9:08 a.m.


Lara Bar. Earl Grey Tea.


Meeting up with Jonnie, Josiah, and Bobby in Norfolk packing up the old Astro van, aptly named “Miles”, for the little Ladada tour weekend stint.


Josiah takes the wheel with Jonnie at shotgun both frequently holding cigarettes in their hands – Bobby and I comfortably in the back on the futon cooped up with all the gear and bags.

...

Making one stop along the way at a Starbucks and head shop.


Rolling into Washington D.C. – a diverse mix of CCR, Talking Heads, and Mas Y Mas blaring on the stereo – the Pentagon in sight – the Washington Monument in the distance. Arriving at The Pie Shop, a fairly new place that serves only pies, savory and sweet. The stage/venue on the second floor – cool brick house vibe.






Enjoying some Chicken Pot Pie and Apple Pie.


Hanging out with the Levitation Room guys in the green room and chomping down on pie and sipping on Natty Bo’s. Rick, the sound guy we notice is super hospitable and nice. With the capability of projection on stage we decide to make use of it. Jonnie drops the idea of playing Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain up on the screen. I look up a link of the full movie and we start it at just the right spot before the Jesus guy enters the rainbow room. It actually synced up well with our set. Afterwards, a lot of people I talked to thought we designed it that way. The crowd was decent for the small room – audience response was welcoming.





Levitation Room put on a great set with their warm revivalist 60’s psych sound.


After the show chillin’ with the Levitation guys in the alley out back passing around a handle of Evan Williams (the album mascot). I’ve already stopped drinking for the night – a headache creeped in earlier. But I’m enjoying the camaraderie. We make our way down H Street to an English  pub.




At some point Phil Gray lets us crash at his old apartment. The boys venture out to find pizza at a 7-11 and smoke on the rooftop. After a shower I walk out with a towel wrapped around my waist. They guys are all laughing because the lights are low and the glow of the streetlights seeping through the blinds creates this film noir moment. I feel inclined to perform by holding out my arm in a pose then dropping the towel unashamed. The rest of the night I lie down listening to Phil, Josiah, and Jonnie laughing and drinking in the kitchen.

Ana and Elvis wake me up in my room at 11 a.m. vying for attention.


Ana and I get some Coffee/Biscuits/Pastries from Three Ships. Elliott’s working of course.




Then, at In8 Chiropractic for an adjustment on my neck. It’s a laid back place but Dr. Whitney is very welcoming. Two toddlers provide amusement to Ana and I while we wait.


Grapefruit.


Mom just got back from a doctor’s visit in regard to her cancer. She’s overwhelmed but in a positive way at all the miraculous things happening around her. We finally got her this CBD oil to help any pain she experiences and it’s an absolute total relief.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. Irish Breakfast Tea.


At the Rec for basketball. At some point during a game I collide with another player in an awkward way that it sprains my neck – I can even hear the cracking sound in the way it would happen at a chiropractor.

Catching up on business.


At the studio affixing band photos to the wall and organizing. On my way out I happen to catch the ominous storm clouds form a large panoramic mass in the sky almost resembling the spaceship in the Independence Day movie. Aliens have arrived in Hilltop!


PB&J Buttermilk Biscuits.


Doing the accounting for Music Makers and other business.


After Ana gets off work we head over to Prosperity Bakery for the pastry/bread happy hour and scoop up some goodies.


On the drive I point out to Ana a squirrel sitting on a tree stump nibbling on an acorn. She immediately starts up imitating what the squirrel is saying in her silly cartoonish voice.

“Find nut. Bury nut. Eat nut.”

“Man, I wish my life was that simple.”


Mom takes care of dinner: Salmon with Stroganoff, Brussel Sprouts, and Carrots.


With the Ladada boys rehearsing songs in preparation for our tour weekend.


Apple Bread Pudding Slice. Oolong Tea.




Serious talks with Ana about our relationship – there are some things related to affection, sexual and nonsexual that is lacking from her perspective. The biggest thing is I’m so preoccupied with “tasks” and all the things related to the business that we make no time for her and I to just enjoy our sexuality.

Ana somehow lost where she put her citizenship papers. We all spend a good amount of time looking for any possible place they could be. It’s a racket.


Just before Bangkok Garden closes we sit down for a family dinner, Ana, mom, and I. Enjoying some Chicken with Vegetables and Rice in Garlic Sauce.


Back at the house. At some point we all get settled in the living room for a movie night to watch Green Book (2018). It’s a rarity to just sit down and watch a movie with Ana and mom. Enjoying some Raspberries, Green Tea, and Cheesecake.

The world’s full of lonely people afraid to make the first move.

With Ana and mom for the Musicplayer gig at Winston’s Café. It’s always a challenge setting up everything in this tight corner but I’ve figured out a system. As I’m about to finish up the set up a guy comments, “That is a serious set up!” He was surprised when I told him it was just a duo.


Enjoying an Ahi Tuna Wrap with French Fries and Spinach.

...

Ana and I do our show – it’s a great time with an unusually quieter crowd for a Friday night but also very receptive.







Settling down back at home after unloading the gear at the studio. Mom made a wonderful Mango Smoothie, a perfect refreshment for the end of the day.

We’re throwing a celebration at Shannon’s house tonight. Not only is Ana turning 28 but she also officially became a citizen of the U.S.A. about a month ago. We’ve got just about anyone and everyone we know out here in country western attire. Shannon decorated her parent’s house appropriately with horses everywhere. Ana is well loved and appreciated by all. The bundt cake and cupcakes mom picked up were a hit. The spread: Grilled Chicken, Pancit Noodles, Veggies, and Shannon’s mom’s homemade Spinach Dip. There’s dancing, a fire pit, and karaoke.

Lara Bar. Oolong Tea.


Catching up on business.


Running errands. It’s a beautiful sunny but windy day.


At South Beach Grill they’re having their 25th anniversary with a bunch of local bands all day long including DEJA and A New World Record. I drop in to catch DEJA from the side stage door. In the past I would’ve been up there with them. But it’s cool seeing it from an audience perspective. This whole place is packed like sardines – the sounds of motorcycles revving up their engines outside – the wrinkle room is hoppin’ today!




I meet up with Ana and Stacy at Prosperity Bakery to grab some goodies for the pastry happy hour.




Back at South Beach to perform with the ELO tribute band. We do our short 20 minute showcase set along with Don’t Bring Me Down for the last song. We make quite a mark on the crowd.


Later on, Ana and I try to practice a few songs with her on guitar and me on drums – all in preparation of the show coming up Friday.

Ana and I drive out to Hampton for the Tattoo Festival. Ladada is doing the last performance of the night. Earlier, Ana got a new tattoo when The Lazy Dangers were playing. We all arrive just in time to witness people doing body suspension where they place hooks through your skin and swing you from a chain – not for the faint of heart. After they announce the best tattoo winners Ladada goes up to do our thing – not much of a crowd but something fun to do and get paid.




Back home enjoying some Gelato.

☼▬

Somewhere out of town. With Will and a couple of friends inside a German pub/restaurant. We’re seated up near the entrance door where patrons keep walking in and out. For some reason I have to keep letting people by making it a very inconvenient seat. Meanwhile, down on the main floor I can see Ana and Cynthia hanging out near a piano. Ana is playing a very intense classical song that I’ve never heard her play – it’s very good. You can even hear the string sounds behind it. Cynthia for some reason is wearing an awkward shirt that reveals her breasts but nobody seems to care. The girl bar tender starts singing in an operatic voice along to the song. I pull out my phone and record a great clip. A couple sitting near the piano feeling romantic goes in for a kiss – I zoom in feeling proud of the moment I just captured. The whole restaurant is clapping and singing along. The song and its melody really stick with when I awaken.

Enjoying some Kale Salad with bowls of Bean Chili with mom and friends at the table. Mom’s slick and gorgeous attire draws attention from some young males, one of whom was so affected he had to walk over and kiss her on the cheek.


Back home after midnight enjoying some Gelato and recounting tales from night with Anthony.

At the studio having a business meeting with mom – we go through and organize accounts on the system.


When Ana gets off work we all head to Prosperity Bakery for the pastry happy hour – all pastries half off. More errands – going to Whole Foods.


As we were driving away from the bakery I snapped a couple photos of mom in the passenger seat. Golden hour gave this moment the perfect lighting. I make a post on Instagram, “The sunlight reflects the golden warmth she has emanated throughout my whole life and the pastries in her hands represent the timeless sweetness she gives to the world.


Mom made us a hearty Vegetable and Bean soup for dinner. We all enjoy a bowl while watching an episode of Queer Eye. Sweet Potato Scone.


Later at the studio working songs with Ana – mainly focusing on her drumming and making breakthroughs.

“This is nothing,” she says brushing off the achievement she made on a particular beat we’re working on.

“No!” I argue. “This is everything!” further explaining how it represents the process of overcoming things in life.

After Ana gets off work around 7:30 I take her and mom out to Simple Eats off Shore Drive for dinner. None of us have ever been here yet and they’re supposed to be a farm to table kind of restaurant. The atmosphere is homely and rural. Simple good food. I enjoy a Crab Cake Sandwich with Home Fries, Oysters, Pancakes, and a Berry Mimosa.


Later, Ana and I have fun at the studio making music. I mean, it is called Music Makers for a reason.

In Ana’s room right before bedtime. She just cleaned her room and Elvis is seeking out all the clear spots on the dresser trying to mess with the plants. Meanwhile, she’s acting a little distant and unsettled about our relationship. We talk about our feelings and how who we are affects the bond. Lack of affection is always an issue on my end. I’m an introvert that values time alone just as much as I value time with her. Plus, I’m so busy all the time – always on a mission. There’s stuff we both need to work on to keep this relationship strong.
