  • Friends are posting pics of the flooding in Chicago — it’s making me very very homesick, but at the same time glad I’m not there right now! #
  • Nice when nice people write nice notes asking to use my pics, which are CC-licensed anyhow. News is not nice tho. http://tinyurl.com/3cfcdv #
  • I f’in hate showing my receipt at the door, and showing ID when I use my card. Considering polite noncompliance. http://tinyurl.com/2hz3ht #
  • Googling “chronic earworm”. Got one that’s bugged me for at least 25 years if not more, a 4- or 8-bar loop I call the Default Song. It sucks #

Hello from Roma!

I haven’t been able to blog in forever just because every time I’ve gotten on the internet (which is rarely) I’ve only had time to check my mail, and to write a few people.  I’m keeping a journal though, maybe I’ll post some of that later when I get home.

While we’re in Rome we’re staying at this girl Sara’s apartment.  I’m using her computer and she has a really old version of Internet Explorer.  My site looks all fucked up here, I guess it can’t read the style sheet right.

Hey there, happy Halloween!!  I just got back to the hotel after the show in Sevilla at the Fun Club.  I KILLED tonight.  Swear to god.  The sound was really really good, at least for me, so that made it a lot easier to hear myself well and put on a good show.  Also, all the employees of Green UFOs were there (the folks who put this Spanish part of the tour together), so I guess I wanted to do really well so they could see what a kickass performer I am.  Hahaha!!  Good thing they didn’t see me last night in Puerto Real.  ;-)

Puerto Unreal

Hello!  Just got home (haha) to Sevilla, from the show in Puerto Real (Cadiz), a seaside town.  Or anyway, we saw a beach and some water, but I’m not sure if that was the actual ocean.  It’s only a little over an hour’s drive from Sevilla so we just drove back and forth.  We’re staying in the same hotel we we were at last night, called La Muralla.  We have these rooms tomorrow night too.  It’s real nice to be able to stay in the same place for a little stretch, you don’t have to spend so much time draggin’ yer suitcase around.  I think me and Ryan are starting to drive poor Andy a little bit batty, but that’s okay.  There are only a few days left for him to put up with our dumbass jokes, and I’m pretty sure he’ll forgive us our weirdnesses and not end up completely disgusted with us and never wanting to see us again.  (Believe me, it can happen!)

HEY!! from Sevilla

Sorry sorry sorry I haven’t been able to blog lately.  I can’t even do it right now, we’re about to go get some lunch.  All the shows have been going great.  I just had time enough to update the Italian and Scandinavian dates on my shows list, and to write to my two Johns (my boyfriend and my little brother).  I have to run now.  Been doing all these interviews, one or two every day.  In Vigo I did an interview live on Spanish national radio, IN SPANISH!!  Good times.  Tonight we’re playing in Cadiz, tomorrow there’s a show here in Seville, and then god knows what.  I have to look on my own website before I can remember where the hell I’m going.  LOL

Day off in Sevilla

I’m in the hotel Muralla in Sevilla.  Me and Ryan stayed up for a few hours drinking beer, smoking cigarettes, talking and laughing the whole time but we didn’t realize the sound was carrying through the hotel.  Just got a huge bang on the door so I knew it was time to go to my room and shut the fuck up.  When we opened his door there was nobody there!!  I guess the night clerk banged on the door and bolted back downstairs so he wouldn’t have to actually yell at us.  I hope we don’t get in trouble for this, ‘cuz we’re supposed to spend another couple of nights here!!  Uhhhhh…. sorry?  Lo siento, no sabiamos que fuimos haciento tanto ruido!!

Porto postcard

Hey.  I’m in fuckin’ PORTUGAL, can you believe it?  I can’t.  We played in Porto tonight (=last night) at a place called Mercedes… actually the full name translates to "My Mercedes Is Bigger Than Yours".  Heheh.  This is probably… no, definitely… the most unspeakably beautiful city I’ve ever seen in my whole life.  I took about 65 pictures today so you can see for yourself once I put them online.  The town is just… I don’t know.  Medieval meets old-fashioned with a little modern thrown in, in all the right places.  It’s a river town and the club was practically on the waterfront, where all the action is.  This doesn’t seem to be quite as much of a party town as, for example, Caceres in Spain, which is also a really medieval-looking place.  There everyone was out drinking in the streets all night long, but here it’s really dead outside at 3 in the morning.  Of course it is Sunday so maybe everybody’s home tonight getting a good sleep for work tomorrow.  Which is what I should be doing!!

3am in Vigo

Note: This is a journal entry — it was written on paper or on my computer, then transferred to my website, maybe years later.


Just got back from the club where we played in Vigo, called Vademecum.  Great club.  It’s like a groovy dance club with a chillout room on the side.  The owner Julio said it’s only open on weekends.  We played at 12:30 AM and by the time we left it was really hoppin’.  Tonight was daylight savings night, so we got an extra hour to hang out without worrying about losing sleep.  :-) Anyway our drive tomorrow is super short, only a few hours to Oporto, Portugal.  I had a pretty good time playing tonight!  The audience was very good so I rewarded them (haha) with that Lydia Mendoza tune for an encore.  :-D There were plenty of people for my tastes, maybe 60 that came to see us play.  A lot more people came in later though, for the dancing.
