I told you I was troubled
You know I'm no good

K-top- I am excited to see what you have come up with so far. No worries and no rush... I obviously didn't kick off the project with a bang. Anyway, I am looking forward to it.

My fingers and hand are fairly sore from playing all these fucked-up jazz chords I have never played before, in an effort to throw a "Christmas-y" set together for December 1. I had forgotten that my dad will be there then, so he will get to experience something a little unusual when he is here.

Also, my friends Tom and Will are coming in December, and we have another Christmas/music thing then, too... except this one is at some really rich dude's house.

Bad timing on both counts, but odds are, Will and Tom would've heard some guitar that Saturday anyway.

It snowed Saturday. I leave for California on Friday morning. I'll be visiting my friend, Dan. The next weekend, Thanksgiving, my sister, Lizzy, will visit.

I think we will go out to the Gallatin Gateway Inn, rather than cook.

For those of you who missed the "offensive post" then requested it, sorry, but it is gone. I just deleted it.

Also, I decided to not send out the vaguely criminal, but absolutely hilarious story from a couple months ago... in case you were wondering. When (if) you see me, buy me a beer, and I will happily tell it to you. It's just not the kind of thing I want to memorialize in writing.

Saturday, we attended a fun party down in Ennis, Montana. Sunni threw a 40th birthday party for her husband, John. We all wore black.

Ennis is a half hour or so away, so we lined up drivers. Six of us piled into a Land Cruiser and enjoyed a mini road trip. I made a couple discs of some Guns-n-Roses and other songs. It was a fun party.

As I mentioned a few posts ago, the people in my new social circle live in some absolutely killer houses.

Sunday, we laid around for most of the day, then rallied to go see American Gangster with Denzel and Russell Crowe. It was good, but frankly, I was expecting more. It was well done, as you would expect from Ridley Scott, Russell Crowe and Denzel. (Is Denzel ever bad? Really, his presence can make a "C" movie into a "B".)

First, I was pretty jacked that Jay Z had created a new album "inspired by" the movie, but none of the music was in the movie! Although, there were some pretty sweet, funky seventies' tunes. Second, although it was a fascinating (and based on a true) story, there were no surprises, and at the end of two and a half hours, I was ... meh.

Verdict: It was good, but wait for the rental.

That was my weekend.
