OK, so I had planned on getting back from my tour and dedicating this journal to that experience but then I checked my email and got an email from my German ex-boyfriend from like 4 years ago at school. This was really exciting and gratifying for me because he wrote to me after seeing my picture in the European version of Guitar Player Magazine. I’ve included the email in it’s entirety and the broken English is really awesome. Here’s a little background on the situation. This guy treated me like crap for the 3 or so months that we dated. He’s about seven years older than me and was always telling me that I needed to meditate and that I wasn’t spiritual enough. He was on this wannabe Buddhist trip and it was really annoying. He told me I needed to lose weight and I told him he needed to take a freaking shower. Anyway, we broke up when he went back home and I always felt inadequate when I was around him, so revenge is very sweet. Clearly, he’s trying to get something started with me again. You be the judge.
How are you???? you know what, I saw in a guitar magazine when I was waiting for plane on my vacation in Australia. You looked great, and your bass did too. Apparently you removed the stickers that I predicted in my spiritual vision. (with smoke and shit…) I play a lot these days, Lionkong, other musicals and livegigs with bands. Are the sprouts still stink like penis? Maybe you should feed them some lube instead of water.
OK, so first of all he signs the email “love” and uses the bizarre nickname that he made up for himself while we were dating. He really liked the word “kitten” and liked the feel of it in his mouth when he said it. I had completely forgotten about it, but was happy for the reminder. When I first got the bass he’s referring to, it had these stickers that the guy who died and from whom I inherited it had left on it, so I wasn’t about to take them off. He was always badgering me to take them off and I won’t but one of them fell off and he thinks he one the argument. I’m not sure what (with smoke and shit) means though. Also, I vaguely remember an episode where some alfalfa sprouts had gone bad and I said they smelled like a penis. I can’t believe he put that in the email. I just can’t believe that he saw that picture and is trying to be my friend. I wrote him back to correct him on the sticker incident and inform him that I recently moved in with my American boyfriend. I just had to share that with you guys…
Well, I just got back from an awesome tour with Joe Stark, opening for the Mark Broussard Band. It was so awesome. I was on their tour bus for a week and had my own bunk with my own dvd player and I didn’t have to lift a finger. It was so much fun and I hope I get to do it again soon. I’m playing tomorrow night with Blair at the neutral ground at 7:00 so you’d better come. I have a gig later that night at the Old Point bar and you should come to that too, but the Neutral ground will be awesome. You’d better be there. Goldstein…
