i’m not particularly upset or anything, just tired. eyes getting more and more bloodshot. i feel like there’s a barrier between me and productivity right now….my creative output has dwindled into a more minimal offering than i can remember. i need to find my way around whatever this obstacle may be.
smoked and took a bike ride around my neighborhood tonight. i truly live in an incredible spot, 78704, south downtown austin. the houses possess so much character, it’s astounding. there’s a mix between charming 1950’s southwestern homes, and hyper-modern, multiple-story modern houses with a minimalist japanese aesthetic, with a dramatic range in cost. most homes have quirky elements that serve to express the individuality of the owners, and it’s clear that the general section of austin i live in, the bouldin creek/barton springs/soco/s first st neighborhood, has a distinct vibe of its own. it’s a really special community that i’m grateful for falling into. also, it looks like i’ll be staying in my place for at least a few more months, and might re-evaluate and consider a new spot at the start of 2012. still though….you guys should take a 2am cruise with me sometime.
i stuck around until 8am on saturday night for the second silent disco, by the way. one of my friends was there until noon apparently, and met the owners of the enchanted forest, before making it to freddies place for bloody marys. i just slept from 9 until work later that day. met dj chicken george before leaving; he and motion potion closed out the show, two fantastic dj’s who brought opposing but compatible beats for an all-night ragefest. chicken george closed with flying lotus’s ‘tea leaf dancers,’ and also had a sweet expansion of a loop from fela’s ‘water no get enemy.’ two of his mixes are featured on my favorite site for reliably dope podcasts, the parisdjs website.
been babysitting and working a lot lately, but i’m still hungry for change. fantasy football draft is tomorrow. neon indian show this weekend that i might go to. maybe i’ll get a coffee maker or something. put it in my room and get some extra momentum to start out my days. i’m waking up too late again….i do feel like i’m experiencing a lot at night and making memories and meeting interesting people regularly, but i’ve spoken of my intentions to become more of a morning person for months now, if not longer, and want to resume progressing towards that ideal. i also have shitloads of drafted posts on here, and don’t feel like that’s okay either. all sorts of festival pictures and concert videos, just clogged up in the mental queue somehow. must strive to articulate and find myself in a more prolific state of being. lucidity is progress……fitting that i’ve been listening to lots of tame impala lately.
