I'm Becoming A Lounge Lizard

I can tell that I've been using my iPhone too much because my right hand has been hurting a lot these days.  I know it sounds weird, but it's true.  In some ways it's good.  It's a reminder of DON'T TOUCH YOUR PHONE UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY REALLY NEED TO.  Which, in most cases, I don't have to use my phone.

I played at the Lizard Lounge last night on a moment's notice.  There were spots available so I jumped on one.  I think I've only missed two Mondays since March 16th.  One was to go skiing and the other one was because of rehearsal (and my inability to grab a slot last minute).  I love spending my Monday nights there.  There is always a great crowd and great performers, and it's a great space to try out new songs.  I haven't done that in a while.  I've got some tunes in the works that I'm finishing up hopefully soon.

Until then, enjoy the temporarily titled "Passports and Calling Cards"


Consistency Is Everything

Isn't it?  This is a thought that has been on my mind as of late.

I like to think I'm a pretty consistent human being.  There are times where I have completely neglected things, but on the whole, I think I'm consistent.  Now, this blog has had its ups and downs as far as consistency is concerned.  I write daily.  I don't blog daily - which is somewhat surprising to me because I've been blogging since 2001 or 2002 thanks to Xanga, Blurty, LiveJournal, DeadJournal, Blogspot, tumblr, WordPress, and eventually this.  I don't think I blogged every day back in the day either.  The point is, over the course of the past 12 years or so of my life, I have been a regular blogger.

I keep telling myself that I want to blog every day.  And maybe I do, maybe I don't, but I'm going to.  I might blog every day for a long period of time, I might do a 30-60-90 day test window to see what comes of it.

I want to be consistent.  I want to be dependable.  I want to be counted on to do what I say I'm going to do.

And on that note, I must be off.  I'm playing at the Lizard Lounge for the fourth time in five weeks (I missed one week to go skiing).  I don't know what I'm going to play yet, and I'm probably not going to stay until the end because I want to get up early tomorrow.  But I am going.  Because I want to play my guitar and sing for people.

And because I want to be consistent.
