Long for the Machine
Today I drove for one of Ollie's fieldtrips, to a strawberry farm about an hour away. I drove with a parent of one of Ollie's friends, Mike (who is also a good friend of Darby and mine). He wanted to hear Darby's music, so I played Casting Out stuff for him, and then he wanted to her The Look Machine too.
It was weird, I hadn't listened to us for a while now, and playing the album again with him listening was a pretty bittersweet experience. It sounded good, something I could be proud of... but at the same time, I really missed playing that music, and writing new music, and playing with this group of peope.
I'm looking forward to the summer when we get to play again, for sure.

Funny thing... I randomly just listened to our album today for the first time in a LONG time. Bittersweet is right.

Funny, you still listen to it every day, and cry a little bit.

a LONG time for you is about 45 minutes

That's what she (Ian's wife) said.

Hm... considering the average (human) male lasts for 3 minutes of intercourse, 45 minutes is not bad. Even by my standards.

i listened to the album that day too.
a few days in there.
it's quite good, if i say so myself.
i really miss us...? is that how you say it?
at any rate, i love the Machine and can't wait for the reunion show.
