DREAM: Stopping by Keith and Danielle’s house. I want to leave my laptop there for some reason. I walk in and there are new kids I don’t recognize playing on the floor. I set up my laptop on the shelf near the TV. I have it on and it’s playing a music video by The Clash. I’m concerned about the volume being too loud for the kids when they go to sleep. Danielle suggests I plug the sound into the TV instead of the stereo. So I find this white auxiliary cord and plug it in. I’m in the kitchen now and it looks just like the kitchen in my house, almost identical. Tyler Watts walks in through the front door. I make a joke to him, “This isn’t a party house, Tyler. Do you think this is a party house?” I see Pizza and other finger foods on the counter. Rocky starts to grab a slice, then another, then another, taking her time. I get frustrated because I’m hungry and she seems to be doing it on purpose to annoy me. So I shove her out of the way and grab pizza for myself. ☼ Switch to a scene where I’m exploring around a park nearby Keith and Danielle’s house. It’s daylight and Tyler is asleep just below the hill. I see an orange rooster standing by himself. All of a sudden he starts gnashing at me and then the rest of his gang follows. I assume I’m just in their way and they want to just get past me. I don’t feel like they would harm me but my animal instincts tell me to back off. They continue on and I retreat up a slide in the park. More chickens appear along with a few dogs. I want to yell to Tyler, “Look Tyler! It’s Homeward Bound 2!” but I know he’s sleeping. A pig is straggling behind the gang. I swoop down the slide and pet the pig a few times. He’s pink and his nose is muddy. I sympathize with the pig because he can’t be a part of the flow.

Waking up a little after 2 p.m.

Breakfast: Toasted Plain Bagel with Butter and Blackberry Jam. Orange Juice. Zinc, Alfalfa Grain.

Business and scheduling.

Practicing songs at the storage unit for the show tonight.

Chris Cloud comes over to capture a few more interviews for the Tokyo DVD.

He films me on the basketball court playing a game of 21 with a few strangers.

Eating Watermelon and Figs.

Playing a MUSICPLAYER show at Chicho’s Pizza in Chesapeake. Performing a solo set, then the full band set. We rock Weezer songs, “Island in the Sun” and “The Sweater Song”. They cause booties to shake and lips to sing.

Eating Pizza and drinking a Blue Moon.

Back at home with Margot. Drinking Passion Peach Smoothies and eating Edamame with Greens and Carrots. Watching True Blood. It feels good to veg out after a hard working show.

Sleep around 5 a.m.
