2.9.2007 Lovely to be home
Nice to be away, nicer to be back. This dude was hanging out in the dark at the entrance to a Buddhist temple in Busan, South Korea. I'm not sure what the deal is with the little guy on the lower right. Looks stressed. Maybe the jet lag was buggin' him, too.
I had access to almost no music for two weeks, didn't go to any clubs over there, or go to any shows except for this wonderful break-dancing-to-traditional-Korean-music theater production. Break-dancing is a national passion in Korea. Really.
Today Sandy McKnight stopped by and talked about songwriting, producing, making music. It was great except I hear my mike was off for the first part of the interview. Damn. We were in a nice groove from the git-go.
Did you see the bump Haale got in the Times this week? Yeow!
