6 something election night...

...whereupon i am struck with the urge to start showing people pictures of me as a young person. actually, i think i just want to see them for myself. see if there's a difference, if i look conspicuously older now. i feel sometimes like i have that wisened look an old dog gets when the wind blows past its nose, maybe just that we're both stubbly.
i'm not old, i know i'm not. i'm not suffering some "woah dude i'm 30 now i gotta get my act together" bologne, it's just that quitting smoking kinda left me feeling like i'd started something new in my life, or returned to something else. like i get to put the smoking person away now, like there was an angry smoking chris and now i can go back to normal.
it's obvious i'm blogging in lieu of a shrink, isn't it? sorry..
at any rate, quitting smoking, changing that thing in my life (and some other life changes of late) made me want to keep going. do something new.
of course, the sad part is i'm lazy. whoops!

Today is day 4 of not smoking. I quit after 15 years, for my 30th birthday. So far the deprivation is hurting my muscles, playing with my head, and there's other things going on that may or may not be attributed to me getting sick as well (sinus weirdness? frequent urination?)
I dug around online today for some soup recipes, I'm pretty stoked about all that. Gonna make some vegetable stock tonight, that should make the house smell AWESOME.

Every once in a bluest of moons I get the notion to prattle on about something that's not music related... or is music related, but not related to music I'm making. And by prattle on, I mean blog. Thus far, my only bloggerly venues have been either the Ne'ers blog or the blog on my MySpace page. Neither venue seemed right for a web rant on such enriching subjects as where to get good donuts, or why Sarah Palin isn't as much fun as Dick Cheney but maybe more frightening, or remember Rent A Center? No, those pages seemed like they should be reserved for little dialogues from "Chris Buckridge: Artist" (big quotes, folks, big big quotes...)

All that is changed, bros and broettes.

Sadly, we'll have to kick things off more in depth at a later date, as I honestly have nothing to say. OH, except that Cleveland has the best bands. I saw Mystery of Two and Hotchacha play tonight, two of 5 great bands that played the Exit Stencil CMJ showcase at Spike Hill in Williamsburg. Both bands blew my mind, especially Hotchacha, who this was my first times seeing. i'll have some pics to post later.
