Yes, I made a Crow reference. I'm like that sometimes. ::grin::

Stress reduction... For reals, having Jaime only be out a week of work is a huge burden lifted. I felt confident enough in the world to go buy some cheap-ish sneakers and get rid of 3 pairs of unpleasant black shoes in the same trip. My old sneakers cause my hips to hurt, so let's not wear them, eh?

Random T interaction... I had an amazing interaction with a woman on the train on the ride in this morning. It took from Alewife to Central to finish my meditation (that's 11 1/2 min, fyi, for those of you interested in the meditation OR how long it took me to get through that part of the commute... today). She was an older lady named Jane (guessing my mom's age or somewhat older). She was chatty and I was feeling chatty so why not? I actually like talking to strangers on the train if they are nice and I'm not otherwise engrossed in my own thing. It was a perfect 5 minute friendship, thus illustrating that they don't have to last forever to be worthy and valuable.  Also, I am my mother's child. So very.

Kid stuff... My kid-parenting regrooving seems to be working out so far. This is nice. I feel proud and pleased.

Work stuff... I have the office to myself due to the demands of today's schedule on the remains of our office. It's been OK. I just let myself be damn sad yesterday. Not denying or trying to tamp down my feelings was really nice.

Fun stuff...  I'm going to see the Indigo Girls with [livejournal.com profile] caulay on Thursday in Lowell and going to see the Doubleclicks at Thunderoad with [livejournal.com profile] samuraizergling and some other folks on Saturday. Yay fun! I was looking at the ticketmaster lawsuit info- turns out I've seen a LOT of shows in that time-frame. I am not certain I'll be able to use even a fraction of the settlement in the time allotted.

I should be writing up my notes from the last 2 days, but I've been on IM instead and generally feeling emotionally flayed from all the interacdtions and eye contact. So much has happened that I think I can only do the big overview and then I may be able to add stuff later, but if nothing else if you are interested in a particular thing, feel free to ask me to elaborate. Possibly even in person, if I ever come  out of hiding after I get back home.

  • The childhood friends: all 3 in one place with me for a mini reunion that defies superlatives.

  • Losing my internal sensor almost immediately upon arrival (primarily from that mini reunion)

  • Marathon day at the conference, hitting later afternoon and experiencing this surreal state of cascading epiphanies and clarity.

  • Writing the draft to an article I want to expand on describing the big deal stuff going on with work project(s). More to the point, having encouragement from Leader In Field suggest I write it

  • Diving into twitter, gaining almost double the followers I had last week (36 to 61? It's odd)

  • Getting a ton of support from a ton of people who are more convinced of my capacity than I am

  • Lots and lots of good learning moments

  • Rock n Roll hall of fame visit

  • Visiting with [livejournal.com profile] jedipartner1967 (short short form: home from hospital, doing super well!!)

  • The kid and his grandpa and the extended time together while the wimmin folk worked

  • Looking forward to a low-key social on Sunday in the back yard

  • Looks like Grace and Amy will be visiting me in Boston in November. That's going to be epic. Prep the bail money now.

OK. That'll have to do for now.

[livejournal.com profile] asciikitty and I had a date last night, which is rare! We are often quietly doing stuff together at home, but it's not the same as going on an adventure.
Warby Parker and Fluevog did not provide enticing retail therapy; not true for ascii who left with two pair of very-good-for-her shoes. Win! Thai food: win! Fiddle player as opening act, part of Ani's backup band, a fiddle player named Jenny who was good enough to have me get her CDs at the intermission.

And Ani.
Oh, my Ani. There was a time when I'd be sure to catch every show she had in my town. She was at the pinnacle of my muscial temple from the moment listened to her my senior year of college and long into my time in Boston. But as the political landscape darkened, her music did, too. It was music that was needful and good to make, but not the music that spoke to me. But I'm ridiculously loyal. I haven't missed many albums in the intervening 12 years since my interest diverged. I'd still go to most shows, but the previous two times, concerts at the Orpheum were... just not great. I left feeling grumpy not elated. Going this one more time felt a bit like a gamble.
I don't know... times changed? Venue (Berklee not Orpheum, and no booze on site... and Berklee instills in it a sense of reverence for music. In my opinion), time passing, median age of audience leaning way more towards 40 than 20 (yay), and that she'd not been out on the road for a while following a second child arriving.

She walked out onto the stage and .... I forgot how tiny she is. I forgot about that boucy gait, the mad glee, the energy that bursts from her and then a bit more with restless feet under the hot lights- The ridiculous jokes that start in the middle, that she almost doesn't tell but then can't help herself. I didn't know how deeply I missed all that, being in her presence, til she was there again and I regained a part of myself I hadn't realized had faded so far into the background that it almost wasn't there at all. A layer buried deeply under the person I am right now. She played Not a Pretty Girl then You Had Time for the first two songs, and at the first chords of You Had Time*... and the realizations tackled me and lo, I wasn't wearing anything I couldn't wipe my hands nose on. Thankfully.

I wasn't sure I could feel THAT way again, because where Ani was musically was just so far off... but now with two kids and who knows what else, her perspective and mine have so much more overlap. And my sense of activism is stronger than it was 7 years ago. Meeting in the middle? Her mom-stories just made me cackle... and her energy, that of a kid with a day pass to go play with her friends after long confinement. Her son is a year and a half now, and this is her first tour since he arrived. All that creative energy was diverted for all that time, and then let loose, she's just compulsively creating. (I wouldn't know ANYTHING about that, nope, not at all) She shared a song that she had only finished that morning, and apologizing too much for not just playing the old stuff.  But she did play older stuff, thank the goddesses. It really was a gift, to have her let me have my nostalgia, and to give me a window into where she is now with her boundless enthusiasm and glee.

All this to say: I will be buying her new album(s).

The day started off with a bit of a sleep in for me. Sadly, the kid was keen to be up at 5:30, so no rest for [livejournal.com profile] quiet_elegance.
After breakfast, the three of us went out for an adventure at the "pirate park"-- the playground at the Cambridge Common/Harvard Sq. That will be the last warm weather adventure I go on with Crime Fighter that doesn't include at least a hand towel and a complete change of clothes. Winter made me complacent. I went out and got a Harvard shirt and a small towel while QE played goalie. The water/sand feature was entirely enjoyed.
I did not realize that the Garage's pizza joint, Crazy Dough, features the big squares of bready pizza that they had at one of the pizza parlors at OU. It was the perfect pre-lunch snack.
Post nap, we hung out at Estradell, came back for dinner with the family, and post lunch I was released into the wild to have ice cream. I love Davis Square, I really do. [livejournal.com profile] primal_pastry, [livejournal.com profile] red_canna +kids, [livejournal.com profile] mangosteen, [livejournal.com profile] lifecollage were on purpose, but then saw Ethan, Aili and their wee child, [livejournal.com profile] zzbottom, librarysexy, and their less wee child; [livejournal.com profile] beah, and her even less wee child, [livejournal.com profile] kit_holliday & her crew, who were hanging out with the musicians. Of course. While with Kit, a nice looking youngish guy came over to say hi to her- turns out it was Ryan Montbleau. I am ashamed I'd not really remembered him, but hell of a great musician. See? Proof. Awesome.

So, thank you to my mother. Hope all my fellow parentals had a lovely day regardless of gender. Extra love for those missing the hell out of your moms. Big squeezes for the whole loving tribe that is my family for making this job easier every day, especially the ones I live with: [livejournal.com profile] quiet_elegance, [livejournal.com profile] fubar and [livejournal.com profile] asciikitty.

My trek out to the hinterlands of almost-NY (Tanglewood) was great! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] caulay and [livejournal.com profile] ahf for hosting, and for a great travel partner of [livejournal.com profile] taura_g.
Walking into Tanglewood made me think very much of what it was like to be at Interlochen and just have amazing music + woods. We had pavilion seats. The Indigo Girls had already started when we got there, as it was a longer slog than expected. It was a bit of an older crowd since Joan Baez was headlining, so between the culture of Tanglewood and the fanbase skewing more towards her everyone was very well behaved.  Kind of too well behaved. We found out later it was a lot to do with the default security settings, which is more appropriate for the BSO than for a rock-ish concert. After Joan's set (the 4 of us hung outside of the pavilion on the grass, which was much more companionable), they combined forces into a super folkie force for good. At that point Joan asked security to chill and let us just do our thing, which involved standing up (gasp!) and walking around in the aisles. Their last official song was Water Is Wide, which was pretty devastating. So gorgeous and heart-breaking. The vid I found is from last week but the same tour, so you have all the right elements, just not with that Tanglewood... thing. ;) OK, I might be ribbing the venue a bit.

The one downside of the day: dinner. Ohhh god. Eveyone but [livejournal.com profile] caulay had pretty much bland food, and his was over the top spicy. And so slow. Ah well. First world problem. The ride home included a brief but stunning view of the Super Moon. It was, in fact, super.

Now bed.
mizarchivist: (Marlene (on the wall) Dietrich)

I may not comment often, but I pretty much always read [livejournal.com profile] drwex's music posts. Today [livejournal.com profile] caulay shared an ear worm with me and I was already in an analytical mood, so I'm inspired to do a Wex-ish style music post. 

He pointed me to the video for Gotye's Somebody I Used To Know, which starts off so innocuously, I didn't expect it to go anywhere as such in any aspect. Gotye's style reminds me a great deal of Peter Gabriel**, who is someone I've always liked in passing, but to date have never made any effort to buy his stuff. Then the background starts changing, and I'm getting more sucked in. The music is still OK, but I'm not paying that much attention to the lyrics. Oh. Now we are painting on people to make them match the background? Ah. In the last third we finally get to Kimbra. Woah. Hello, nurse. Great voice, great body. Somewhere within the first few bars of their duet, I realize I'm going to have to backtrack and rewatch all of it. Which I do. 

Now I am inspired to hear what Kimbra sounds like on her own, so I go down a few rabbit holes in YouTube until I get to her video for Good Intent. Again, I don't start off really paying a lot of attention. Then there's dancing and imagery and symbolism, and I go back. I adore the 3 aspects of self, the use of color, the throw back to Mad Men-era 60s, the dancing! So, if you choose to watch the video, you may as well plan on really really watching it. Don't try to multi-task. You may want to leave time to watch it two times to catch the stuff you didn't see the first time. 

Ideally, I should find a solo song by Gotye to complete the circuit, but I've already lost a lot of time to these three (if you include Excellent Birds, listed below) and theoretically should do something less procrastinaty with my time. I do have every expectation of purchasing Good Intent, although in reality I'll probably 'Used to Know, too, since it's already stuck in my head as it is. 


**My first exposure to him doing Excellent Birds with Laurie Anderson. I didn't know at the time who Gabriel was. Maybe not so unusually, it was Laurie Anderson who was played at my house. However, that specific song was on my father's very first CD, which was a compilation that may well have come with our first CD player. That disk also had Chaka Kahn, Don Henley's Boys of Summer, and Wang Chung's Dance Hall Days. Getting back to the video I found for Excellent Birds: talk about a trip back in a time machine, and yet, whenever I think of either Anderson or Gabriel they are that age in my mind. It's jarring as hell to see that they are not those people anymore.

 I worked last Saturday, so I have today off- (woo!)
Stuff done:
read up on new health insurance. Some. I still am somewhat mystified :P
sorted a bit of the kitchen table mess
started laundry
put away winter wear (scarves and stuff)
emptied dishwasher, refilled with waiting dirty implements
put away stuff on counter
did dishes
went through kitchen shelves to remove things I don't think we're keeping. Anyone need a vase or 3?
CD project revisited* -- A-Co completed. 

I have had some lunch (it was lame). I did sleep in some and took a bath. I have a book I'd like to keep reading. There's also Cook's Illustrateds to go through to figure out what new thing might get cooked, particularly if it requires really big tomatoes- (produce of the month are insanely large tomatoes- not a kind I normally eat in any way. Sauce? Probably)

*CD Project: really nobody cares about this- not as such.  ). Hi, welcome to the wonderful world of persnickety archive behavior! The thing is, I know I'm the only one who cares.
mizarchivist: (Fingers Crossed)
I told the gym that I'd be going on hiatus in May. I rarely can manage more than once a week, which is not cost-effective. I have been doing well with filling in gaps at home with DVDs, and it's almost bike season. I feel a bit bad about it, particularly since I feel the gym is struggling, but I also need to do what's right by me. They can put my membership on hold for 6 months, which should be about right if all goes well.

The agent sent us a great listing today. It's in Arlington, decent location- not as great as I'd like, but so much potential. Sadly, there's no pictures of the inside. It's for May 1, which is a bit soon- may need to do some over-lap (and really get in on that packing thing). We have the street address so all of us are likely to do our own recon today.

Musical Note: I added Zoe Keating to my Laurie Anderson station on Pandora. Wow, is this fun.  If you want me to share said station with you, let me know and I'll email you.

[livejournal.com profile] quiet_elegance  and I had a date last night out at The Foundry in Davis. This was after a bit of socializing (for the first time in months at Diesel). I have high marks to assign. The service was exceptionally attentive. Food was entirely tasty. They have poutin, too. Holy cow. They mixed me something that was like a lime rickey. q_e enjoyed both the beer and the Manhattan. Not cheap, but considering the booze not that unusual. Particularly if you appreciate a bit of extra attention from the staff.

Still no word on work for him, but he's 2nd in line for apprentice work (out of dozens, if not at least a hundred). That's fantastic. Hoping hoping hoping for something that will be high quality and with some longevity.

Between the coffee I didn't even finish and all the half-thoughts I have in my head, I'm wholly without work focus right now.

I felt like a jerk for breaking the rule on no vid in the church, but I also thought if one was unobtrusive and not doing the whole thing so one can explain even a fraction of what it was like... Then yes. That.

So-

Evensong song

In UK wrap up- Yesterday was nothing but travel and food that was disappointing. We got home an hour after landing (10:30pm) and I managed to sleep to 6:30. Go, me!
[livejournal.com profile] quiet_elegance  has been busy as a bee and dealing with his usual semi-annual lung infection (on the good drugs, will not share germs) so there's decidedly no food in the house, save the ton of chocolate I brought home, and that's not dinner.
My plans now that I'm home are minimal. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I also think sticking around the house some and spending time with q_e are rather important.
mizarchivist: (Glasses & Manuscript)
OK-
This afternoon Tom, [livejournal.com profile] purple_terror and I- after a few hours of meandering through Cambridge- went to King's College Chapel for evensong. This experience absolutely made the trip. I'm sure I will have other moments of fun and pleasant diversion, but this was, for once: awesome. Stunning. Amazing. Reminds you that sometimes the human condition creates pure beauty.

This video
will be a good example of what that was like. And the ceiling--- I have no words.

Is anyone going to hear Ani at the Wilbur Theater on Sunday?
Tags:
mizarchivist: (Default)
Today's the first day I've been back in my office, therefore the first normal-feeling day since I returned from vacation.
Because I wrote everything down in analog form, I haven't felt a huge push to write about the trip. The very short version goes:
-arrived in Rome
-saw OLD STUFF
-ate insanely good food all the time
-walked to exhaustion just about every day
-drove to Florence (survived, even)
-saw more OLD STUFF
-failed many saving throws re: shopping.
-saw the countryside one day, including picking up wine/olive oil at one of the countless farms that sell to tourists/passers by

The rest will be tl;dr but not quite yet.
If you'd like the mostly unedited (yet) pictorial journal, it's here.

The inevitable of going to do so much impressive stuff in a concentrated manner is the hangover (emotionally). I expected and got just that, which has made the past few days a bit of a challenge, but not so very horrid.

Sunday was W00tstock at the Wilbur theater here in Boston. The ones that have been elsewhere (mostly West coast) have been exceptionally well-attended. This one? I'd call it "intimate." The w00t could not compete against that which is Halloween in Boston (or Salem, as the case may be). Also, no Wil Wheaton is a factor not to be overlooked. I am probably oversensitive, but I feel like the driving force of Paul & Storm were hugely disappointed by the really low turn-out and for some reason I've been unnecessarily defensive about it. I fear that because of the string of bad factors, they'll never consider going to Boston with W00tstock again (preferably one WITH Will).
Anyway- enough angst. The show was entirely fun.
Standing in for Wil were two of the guys from MSTK/Rifftrax who did their magic with an educational video about grass from the 70s and another informational video on how to shop from the very early 50s (or late 40s) I need to see more of their work, of course. I'd never been huge into MSTK mostly from lack of opportunity. I've never gotten into Rifftrax.
Grant Imahara talked about working at ILM and being a stand-in C3PO at publicity events. SO cool.
Marian Call: geeky singer who uses a typewriter for percussion. Go on and look her up, I'll wait. .... OK, I know, right? Adorable!
Ig Nobel award guy: much more interesting than I expected. He did a review of some of the recent winners and some old favorites.
Adam Savage: stand up comedy in a wookie suit. Yeah, it was crazy-funny
Paul & Storm: did a usual set of their old reliable favorites. I've seen them at least one or two times a year for a while now (as often as they're in town)- so I know their stock stuff well, but it's like hanging out with old friends. They closed the night with a rendition of the Captain's WIfe's Lament that left my sides hurting from all the laughing.

Work... is work. I'm back, I'm glad for the quiet and doing stuff mostly at my own pace. It took must of the day to filter through all the email. There's an archive conference up in Keene NH this weekend. I'm headed up Friday and staying overnight (hm, I don't think I totally unpacked my travel toiletries bag, did I...?) I have been making faces about going, but really, I am looking forward to some do-stuff-on-my-own time. I have to do certain things while there, like attend a 4 hour meeting on Friday and go to workshops on Saturday, but I get to choose the workshops and choose exactly when I come and go. Also, I never did start Boneshaker in my Audible queue. That should be an interesting thing for the drive.

I applied for the sART at the Station craft fair in Worcester, scheduled on Dec. 5. I hear if I got in or not this Friday. I think I prefer "yes." I have so much stock. It would be good to sell stuff. Hey, if people are kicking around hoping to get inspired by hand-crafted art for holiday gifts, let me know. I am able and willing to do custom work if I have about 2-3 weeks lead time. Ping me in email if this sounds like a thing you want to do.

It's Wednesday, which means lunch with [livejournal.com profile] lifecollage  (Kermit flail-y arms, yaaaay!). The topic of podcasts came up up. I listen to several. People other than [livejournal.com profile] lifecollage  may find knowing about these podcasts to be a good and helpful thing. Also, if you listen to any, you can tell me what you like and why.

OK. that took a lot longer to get written out than I expected. But worth it. Did I mention that I work alone in an office and have 2 hours of daily commute? With that in mind, I also have some sort of backlog which I don't feel compelled to finish. You will also see that one show often feeds into another.
ETA: why can't I write this prolifically for the work blog?! (rhetorical)
mizarchivist: (Elmo)
I don't know why I think I should write posts when I'm brain dead. A visit from G-BFF Dale and his partner Lou was fantastic-- and somewhat alcohol soaked. We started off with sushi with Sang on Friday. They'd never had scorpion bowls- there were mandates to fulfill. Then Saturday involved a tour of Sam Adams. The brewery's in Jamaica Plain (walking distance from my house from grad school). I'd not been since that era, but the 25 min tour did sound somewhat familiar. They let you have some free beer after and you can keep the juice size sample glasses. If you want the freshest beer ever, that's where to go. Unless you make your own, then you already know where to find such a substance. Doyle's has some sort of deal with the brewery and they serve a metric ton of SA's product, including flavors you can't get outside of Boston, so we trekked there for snacks and Red Brick (or Summer Ale). They let you have the perfect pint glasses :
perfect pint glass by Sam Adams
Seriously- these are just brilliant. The guys (their friend Bruce was with us) were very nice and let me take all 4 of the glasses home. Well, they will be home. It made sense to secret them away at work on the way to the Scissor Sisters concert we went to next because who wants to haul breakables into Lansdowne and hope they come out unscathed? Yeah, exactly. 
So, the show. I had heard some S. Sisters in passing. They're OK. Very New York, lots of disco influence, very much an iconic group for a significant portion of the gay community. I emphatically trust Dale when he says I'll enjoy something, but ... wow. I spent most of the show with my mouth hanging open. The stage presence for Ana Matronic and Jake who share the front/lead vocals-- just... Hi. Yes, please! Ana's insanely gorgeous and Jake reminds me emphatically of [livejournal.com profile] saetyr  if saetyr was a former New York go-go boy. Raw energy and charisma. The backup dancers for this tour: sort of a match set of hot redheads. I suspect that listening to the recordings will not compare to the concert experience by so much, but I have every intention of seeing them when they come back, so it is in my best interest to be more familiar with their work n' stuff.

So, after that much fun, I'm rather wrung out. I seem to have lost most of today, but after going to Newbury Comics, I have comics and a Zero 7 disk.  Please, I would like to petition for a weekend extension.

So, a good day yesterday--
I had picked up my cousin, Katherine, a bit later than expected on Thursday night-
After a day of food shopping and a great deal of talking, [livejournal.com profile] caulay , Katherine, and I headed to Lowell for the Indigo Girls concert. It was a perfect night for it. We got lucky and found [livejournal.com profile] curlychick  and her Blonde, we eventually fit in [livejournal.com profile] fraterrisus . To say it was crowded? Yeah- it was crowded. I did not see any Boston  Militia players, but I am not sure I'd recognise them without their jerseys on. (sorry, E.) There were an epic number of kids because Eastern Bank subsidized to have anyone under 12 go in for free. Also- a zillion pregnant women. What is up with that?
However, despite all the crowd, we had a very nice picnic, chatted, and were entertained by the most adorable band evar: Coyote Grace. Want to know how cute they are?
Here.
With Katherine and Coyote Grace July 30 2010
I wish I'd had more forethought to get my shoulder behind that lovely double-bassist (Ingrid)- But here we are with my many-dorable (not just adorable) cousin.
The main act, as always: fantastic. [livejournal.com profile] fraterrisus  and I were stunned by how much old stuff they played. Kid Fears? Yeah. "Who gets to sing Michael Stipe's bit?".... oh. WE do! (Although first runner up Joe- the one w/ the gorgeous beard from Coyote Grace)

... anyway great show.

It's been about 3 years since I've seen Ani. Time to try again- She's playing the Wilbur theater on 11/14. They're doing General Admission/standing room tickets, so that's my path. I'm not doing group ticket coordination this time (so burned out), so go forth! Tickets on sale Friday. Let me know if you're planning on going.

It turns out it helps to listen to the Indigo Girls while sorting through GLBT records. I feel more patient and sympathetic to the insane lack of organization in the current stack of records, the obscene duplication, and plethora of not-created-by-actual-organization stuff. When I get tired of the Girls, I'll move onto Brandi Carlile. Not that I'll run out soon. There's 93 tracks on this Pod (and I cut out the ones I really don't like).

Not unrelated: Girls concert: a mere 3 weeks and 2 days away! My cousin Katherine will be visiting me that weekend and we get to folk out with [livejournal.com profile] caulay.

- I slept horribly thanks to forgetting to put on the AC or fan before bed. The AC is being... dumb. It didn't actually cool down the room to any noticeable degree til well after midnight.
- I'd like to stop clenching my hands while I sleep. 
? It seems to be a trade-off, as I don't think I'm clenching my teeth so much now.
+ [livejournal.com profile] quiet_elegance  made coffee
+ the bike path was quiet and the temp. quite good for a ride in
+ shuffled playlist gave me the music I needed to get over sleeping fitfully
- forgot a 10am meeting
+ remembered at 10:30 and not too late to go (only 15 min. away)
++++++ FarmerSmarket at Copley! Danish pastry!
+ (many) walking back to the office through the garden/common with yet more really good music
+ sharing one of my doughnuts with a panhander
- not being able to share with the other 3 I saw before I got back to the office
+ very good functioning AC in my office
+ I get to go back outside for lunch in 10 minutes. And eat the Danish pastry! (after my sensible sandwich)
