29 - Gettin' Giggy Wid It
My plan was
to come to Beijing and start a band.
Which i haven't done.
I do have a gig scheduled in.
My friend Yuqi, one of the few friends i have in this massivorama city, is one of those few actual professional musicians. Paid to write songs, support bands, invited to play at festivals yadda yadda. Aside: but he's not that professional, 'cause when he doesn't like the band, he looks soooooo bored out of his brains.
He's also buddhist, and often recounts amazing stories about how his master cures his ailments by telling him to purchase and set free animals, and about fish jumping and jumping and jumping for joy in gratitude.
He invited me to open for him at his next gig, which is a wk and a 1/2 away. i should choose my songs. I should practice. I should secure a digital delay pedal.
I'll bang out some old songs. Like 10yrs + old. Sheesh, i sure hope they don't sound too dated.
Anyhow, it's enough to keep me busy for now.
ps. Weird, that Yuqi's wearing a CBC shirt in the picture, not that he knew that at the time of the photoshoot.
