Things to do before your heart seizes from the dulling frustration of a desk job…
1. Visit a sunny fishing village in Mexico in the middle of December.
2. Do not make plans of any sort.
3. Get by on only the Spanish you know or can pick up… throw your other languages away. (they are not necessary and only confuse things)
4. If you can, have 15-20 baby sea turtles hatch under your sun chair while you are lying on the beach. They are so cute and you meet so many people that come up to look.
5. Eat cactus and other fruits, vegetables, and meats you have never before eaten. (you will find them to be good, and perhaps you will gain a healthy cactus addiction)
6. Close your eyes.
8. Be thankful.

So the day finally came. The release of the "Soothing Sounds of Joel Kinunen" album, produced by my friends Dave and Seth. It was a real nice final product with 27 rad tracks from all sorts of folks (I even contributed one). The idea was to take a phone message that Dave and Seth had been collecting from Joel, and incorporate it into a soothing song.
The whole while, Joel was completely in the dark. Until last Saturday, at Binks, when David, Seth, and my other buddy, Eric played their soothing songs to a crowd of people, including Joel.
Check out the fruit of dickbirds loins at "http://www.dickbird.org/music/ssojk/ssojk.html". David did a beautiful job with the final product, and he even has some for sale (15$?!... THAT'S an F'ING STEAL!) Buying one would make an awsome gift for baby Jesus' birthday.

OH! by the way.
I was listening to KEXP (my favorite radio station out of Seattle) and I heard this awesome cover of the Tegan and Sara song "Walking with a Ghost", covered by the White Stripes. I cant seem to get this song out of my mind... out of mind... out of my mind.
Tomorrow. DancePod warm-up party. The Avalon. DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION! and a bag of quarters. Pictures to follow, if you are lucky. Who are you?
