Gnawing Her Leg Off
It seems fitting that since tonight's post is the start of The We Support Kitty on Tour blogging, that I got a package in the mail from her today, with my NIN cd!
Kitty, as most of you know, is stuck in a trap, gnawing her leg off, desperately trying to free herself and come back to the real world. Yes, she is on tour with the Jonas Brothers, who by her accounts are really nice kids, and she has no complaints there, but being on the road with a huge band is brutal for the crew. (and the performers for that matter)
I started adding up once, all the things that would need to happen, and mentioned to her that I thought I had this wrong as it would seem that she might only get 4 or 5 hours of sleep at night, and that on a bus.
Yes, she said. You are correct.
So I thought since she certainly won't be blogging much, I could do it for her, and we could all offer words of support for her to read in her, uh, down time.
Today, as I said, I got the NIN cd and am looking forward to becoming one with the NIN. I also, with the Bosses help, learned all about Last.fm. Found out I had an account (he was my only friend) but I had five other impending friends, including Aleta and Spacelaw. Now I have 6 friends.
I could send all day there! ALL the music of the world is there! Heck, MY music is there (who knew??) It seems terrible unfair that what I am meant to be doing is listening to 9 hours of live Paul and Lorraine and culling the best hour for the cd. Hmmph.
It's odd listening to yourself, live. I am learning a lot. I have learned that I rock,( who knew I was GOOD??) that I am very funny, that I make a LOT of questionable musical choices (meaning SUCK!) and that I am a dork (as in I can't believe I SAID that). All in all tho, wonderful fun! Reminds me of that Clint Eastwood line
"Sometimes the magic works and sometimes is doesn't"
(Wait, that wasn't Clint Eastwood. What movie was that from???)
I think tho, we will have enough great music for a really fine cd. We are still deciding about format, but it will be available online for downloading, and you will be the first to hear when it is ready. I wish I could put all nine hours up and have you all pick the songs for us, but raw un-mixed tape (as it were) is, like the road, brutal.
So in conclusion (always wanted to say that, no idea why..) Kitty is out there on the road for the next 40 or so days. Let's send her all the love and support we can, yes????? I'll be telling Kitty Stories every post (HA! Kitty, and I do have some rare ones!) and hopefully she will read them and feel loved.
And come home soon!
Love and Kitty,
