the grey comes down. a cold warm blanket. with memories of people and places never met nor been to. of things gone before my time. and i had it before it was gone. but that was then and this is now. now is a different time. if only by the tiniest pieces.
the city dissappears into the rain. almost a fog but not quiet. taking pictures and watching movies. killing time and (trying not to be) killing hope. making plans and course corrections. but not with out a price of course. but you’ve gotta stay positive. keep on a positive jam. and the songs just keep coming. life tied up in sound bites.
i’m looking for a return here. premade new years resolutions. to start of the first. a return. and a picture a day. unrelated words. but here. again.
so at the airport waiting for a plane. always end up being to early when it comes to these things. had to many variables to account for. possible border wait. time to find the parking place. security wait time. so all that made me be 2 hours early. better then the other way around.
so airwaves. have most of my nights planned out. we’ll see if those plans hold up or get changed. always have to be open to that. wednesday i’ll be going to venue and nasa. thursday is listasafn and risid. friday idno and factory. yes i’m missing the proper letters for a few of those. sunday i’ll be back at nasa but i’m still up in the air for saturday. going to start at the erased tapes records night but might go to a second place or stay the whole time. still not sure. day times i haven’t accounted for at all other then the blue lagoon party.
the only one i know for sure is the wednesday morning rock and bacon at prikith. i think that’ll be the only day i’ll be awake that early. might catch hundreds at the pool wednesday as well.
so time to go back to airwaves again. 2008 only made me want to go again. so i am. and with that comes nerdy planning. obviously the first place to turn for info is the official site. www.icelandairwaves.is
next i made a spreadsheet of the schedule to work out who i wanted to see. i’m hosting it here if anyone else wants it. http://esquetacular.com/airwaves.xls
the iceblah blog has another speadsheet if you want things presented a little differently then I did. http://iceblah.typepad.com/
and the airwaves blog has it all in ical format as well that markus moises did up. http://www.icelandairwaves.is/media-/festival-buzz/nr/309
so lots of ways to get organized. still hoping someone writes an android app for it all as well.
i’m still wrapping my head around all the bands there are to see. have a few picked out already. trying to strike a good balance between seeing bands i saw last time again and finding new great bands. definitely want to see a few play real shows that i only got to see play day shows last time. and picked out a couple new ones. looking back over pictures as well. forgot just how many great things i saw last time.
can’t wait for skyr and hotdogs.
it all goes wrong when the strings come in.
the times i feel like writing i’m not near any paper. the times i’m at the computer i don’t. so thus this site sits.
always some sort of distraction into the night. later than it should be. this drawing into the night. away from these early morning rises. headphones on and the feeling of a hum in the throat. wishing it could go on for longer than i’ve got.
we want to be heard. we want people to say nice things about us. we want a best friend. we want someone to be with. we want our friends to like each other. we want to be needed. we want it all to be alright. we want a shield for the lonelyness. we want a wild rumpus and sleeping in piles.
a long time of nothing. but everything circles around generally. and things change and move. but still circles if you’re looking for it.
