I'm in SF at the moment...
The woman (named Kendra) is still in Boston...
we have various stuff to figure out about timing and geography...
I've been here for about a week now, about a week left till I head back to her/Boston.
But yes this is a disjointed message to say things are still going really well.
I miss her lots but we are staying in touch.
Of all the times I've been in love...
I've never felt both this crazy about someone... yet at the same time felt completely reasonable.
When I get back to Boston we will only have a few weeks together before she heads to Hong Kong for 6 weeks to teach. That's going to be a bit hard. But...
This is the most optimistic I've ever been about the future.
I met a woman.
Well, more accurately, connected with a woman who I've been interested in for some months now.
She's really incredible.
Smart, fun, communicative. Driven to make the world a better place.
About 3 weeks in and we are still both utterly floored with joy to be in each others lives.
I've never felt like I've occupied the same headspace with someone so quickly.
It is pretty magical.
I'm truly happy for the first time in a long time.
I feel inspired and ready to do new things.
Hi & Happy New Year!
Sorry I've disappeared...
I'm trying to get my life together so I can make some big moves.
Felt like I was missing something to pull it all together.
Anyways maybe found it...
Anyways just wanted to let you all know finally I think I'm on the edge of everything lining up for me to finally be... happy...
it's weird :)
Anyways we'll see what happens. I'll let you know!
I just want to thank all of you, those I see and those I don't.
So I tried to post something a while ago but for some reason was thwarted.
I know it's been forever since I've posted here but I do still read every few days.
• There was a story on NPR about my Sustainable Sound (aka lowRes) project!
Lots of attention from that but I'm a little fried from below things so it's hard to keep up
• I've been Teaching (we call it coaching actually) at this... alternative immersive hands on studio based high school
replacement called NuVu - nuvustudio.org Topics have included "Dancing Robots"...and they like me so have
offered me essentially a staff position (most of the coaches just come in for a 2 week course).
This is at least initially in Boston so it will be keeping me Bicostal for a fair while... they wanted me full time
but I need to be in SF for my "sanity" if you can call it that ;)
• SF stuff proceeds exponentially... we have received as I understand it, our permit for Live/Work/Entertainment
variance, so we can do the types of things that happen at the Glitch Loft, only legally and more epicly as we
have a 20 year lease on a warehouse in SoMA
•Just came back from back to back trips to New Orleans/Baton Rouge and Austin Texas.
Baton Rouge was for NuVu, New Orleans was to explore for a few days...
Austin Texas was to help my friends from VerminStreet.com (Boston based art/music label) throw a party at SXSW.
I liked Austin a lot. New Orleans didn't grab me... it was somehow too normal.
So yeah stuff like that!
That's the main stuff for the moment I think... I maybe repeated some of it from other posts but it's hard to say.
1/31 Never Forget!
Tonight 8PM Eastern Zebbler and I will be on a Live Streaming Internet show called "The Latest With" at www.thelatestwith.com. Hosted By Simone Klein... We'll be discussing the Moonininte Fiasco, and what we've been up to since then. Tune in and check it out, it should be fun!
It was not traumatic.
but also not that exciting.
had some good conversation, but other than that not too much.
Perhaps I will try again!
needless drama, check.
unhappy with (first iteration of) project, Check.
maybe found what I've always wanted and then maybe fucked it up with needless drama, check.
broke up with girlfriend, check.
Maybe I can start over a bit in a while... right now I don't have anything left.
Leaving for Burning Man tomorrow.
This will be #6 in a row for me.
This year for Burning Man, I'm bringing lowRes... by far the biggest project I've ever worked on.
Amazingly it's been mostly sponsored by donations... I've raised I think over $11,000 in about 5 months!
Thanks to everyone out there who's donated or told people about the project :)
It's been sort of a trying last few months, finishing (well mostly) lowRes, and also a number of changes or potential changes in my life happening all at once.
It's definitely pushing me to grow and reassess myself, I just hope it all works out (sorry to be vague, issues of the heart and all).
I was really hoping to have lowRes finished before going out to Burning Man, but instead I would have needed another few days (as is often the case) despite heroic efforts by some friends in the last week or so.
Not that I mind working on the Playa, but I was FRIED (up 36+ hours) by the time of truck load... and since it wasn't finished that means I had to bring a ton of extra stuff I might need instead of just disassembling and putting it into boxes.
oh well it will be OK, we have early arrival passes.
life is a bit weird at the moment but I guess I'm used to that!
See some of you on the Playa -
I'll be camped somewhere around 4 and probably C or D... come see me and come for a ride on lowRes!
