You got a rabbit in the head alright!

I can't pick on you too much for that lyric fart up since you are German.

You should have rabbits in your mail box soon too.

that wasn´t a mistake, it was on purpose

I have (at least) a rabbit in my head, don´t you think?

Sorry, this whole thing was just lost in translation for me.

Re: Falling back into love again.


I wasn't able to give my review of Ryan Adams concert in Toronto last Saturday because I couldn't get an internet connection in the vacation house there on my crappy netbook. Normally I write reviews right after the show because I am usually high all night from the music. And when I did finally have the internet again I learned of Stephen's death and I could not be bothered to write about the show.

Ryan was fecking awesome! The best I have ever seen him and I think I have seen him at least as many times as Bruce if not more.

The venue was weird. It was an old vaudeville theatre with fake leafs hanging from the rafters and faux bois tree trunks all over the place and they were not tastefully done in a Martha Stewart kind of way. All of that old crap really kicked up my allergies later on.

Our seats were fantastic. The seating chart was hard to decipher when I had to purchase the tickets from a scalper due to the show being sold out in like 90 seconds. Turned out that I passed up more expensive seats on the floor (Keith would have killed me) and purchased seats that were actually better.

What a nice surprise. That has only happened to me twice. The last time I saw Bruce we were virtually in the front row but just off to the side. Keith and I both got hand smacks and sweat from Bruce that time and I was surprised over how much that thrilled Keith. By that time I had met, talked to and touched Bruce numerous times so I think it was a bigger thrill for Keith than me.

Our seats for Ryan were in a U-box that was virtually right on top of Ryan. Only the front row had better seats. Our box was the first one and it only held 4 people and our seats were in the front of the box. Worth every penny.

At one point during the show Ryan said "What's it like to be sitting in those boxes?" Normally I would have hollered something in response to that but I didn't want Ryan to see me. My face is too fecking fat from all of the cortisone I have been on. Pretty certain he recognized me anyways because I saw it in his eyes when they turned the lights up.

I am not being nuts about this. Ryan told me that he had recognized me from a number of different shows. I almost slammed into him in San Fransisco without even realizing that he was right there. I have spent a decent amount of time with Ryan. He gave us a private tour of his tour bus, took us out for dinner twice and I even had to give him a ride in my car. Feck. That was so embarrassing. When he opened up the door for me (don't believe the crap you might hear about him; he is a gentleman) a bunch of empty Diet Coke pop cans and water bottles came tumbling out of my car. I had Frankie slobber all over the windshield and the side window where Ryan sat. Still have not had the heart to wash Frankie's slobber off of those windows.

How in the hell was I supposed to know that I would wind up giving Ryan a ride that night?! Honestly, he should have booked and ran for it after he had to ride up and down and up and down over and over again in the elevator in the parking structure because I couldn't find my car. Ryan even had to put up with me cornering him in the elevator and asking him if he liked Bruce Springsteen. Ryan said that he respected Bruce a lot and that was good enough for me.

Ryan truly has no idea of how similar his music is to Bruce's. It's a different genre (most of the time) but the detail and the care to the lyrics are extremely similar and they both have the ability to rock your socks off. Ryan is a better singer and over all he has written better songs than Bruce has in the last decade with the exception of "The Rising" album.

I know what I like and I have 3 go-to artists that have things in common. Bruce, Ryan and David Gray.

Keith always tells me that everything I listen to sounds the same but I can say the same thing about the music he prefers. All of that bloody heavy metal music sounds the same to me when my ears can even tolerate it. He listens to Rush for craps sake and that lead singer is like listening to nails on a chalkboard to me! It's painful!

I was trained as a classical pianist. Beethoven is my best boy. I have only recently started to appreciate the intricacies of Bach. I used to think of him as simplistic and boring. Beethoven had a symmetry and form that I could relate to even when it was difficult to play and more than anything else I loved his passion. Now I know that Bach is much more difficult to play. There are two melodies in each hand with completely different expressions. You almost have to be schizophrenic to play Bach well. I appreciate this now due to my Russian piano teacher, Rita, bashing it into my head. She said she never 'got' Bach until later in life either. I can play one gorgeous Bach piece well but I still love the rage and passion of Beethoven the best. The angst of Beethoven appeals to me.

I could have been a concert pianist if I had not fallen in love with horses and all things equestrian.

My piano teacher, Professor Romeo Fracalanza was extremely disappointed in me when I diverted my energy to horses instead of the piano. He wanted me to go to a conservatory to study the piano when I was 13 years old. My parents did not have the money for that and I am thankful for that. I think I would have become a repressed lesbian if I had been sent off to conservatory at that age. Nothing against lesbians but I do know that I am not one. Horses proved that to me (not in a dirty way!) as well as men later on. I would still prefer to execute a cross-country jumping course or a dressage test with a horse in a fair to middling manner than to be able to play Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata perfectly in it's entirety (my favorite piece of his).

Unfortunately or luckily I can no longer do either of those things. You break [email protected]#$ when you fall off of horses when you are as old as I am. And there is no useful reason for me to play any piano sonata or concerto perfectly anymore. I won't make any money off of it and it's too late to make a career of it. I am happy to play drastically imperfect Beethoven. I know he is already rolling over in his grave on a daily basis from the butchered and easy version of Fur Elise that piano students pound out all over the world.

The only way Keith and I ever settle arguments about music around here is when I sit down at the piano and play for him. That was how he fell in love with me. He watched me playing the piano at an event and that was it for him. I don't think he knew what he was bucking up for. The moodiness of Beethoven, the playfulness of Mozart and the dark side of Salieri. Mix in a Polack like Chopin, a bit of Liszt and a touch of Tchaikovsky, a few others and you have quite a handful of a woman to deal with.

I am beginning to wonder where the hell my husband is tonight. I knew he was going out to have a drink with his friend Paul (the friend recently diagnosed with ALS) and then he was going to meet with his friend Tim. Tim is a bad influence. He is unreliable, he drinks too much and he is the reason why the upstairs of our house has been torn down to [email protected]#$ for about the last 3 years. I like Tim but I think he needs to be in a cage.

I am going to have to phone Keith pretty soon and play the nagging wife. Keith is supposed to work tomorrow and he will have to get up before 6 am. I am not a fan of him working so much and I would love for him to take a day off but I know he will still insist upon going to work.

Oh, lord. My phone call to Keith went through just as he was coming in the door. He is just about as drunk as I have ever seen him. I am not happy! He only has one [email protected]#$ rule that I attempt to enforce around here and that is DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE. There is no excuse for that. He could have stayed at his friend's house, he could have called a cab or he could have phoned me to pick him up. I rarely drink anymore (I am not virtuous; my guts just aren't able to tolerate much any more) so I am generally a safe bet.

A bad hangover might take a day (sometimes two if you really do it up like I did after completing the state board nursing exams) to get over. Harming or taking someone else's life is something you will never, ever recover from if you have a soul. I am so pissed at him right now. He has never done this before. I hope he has a vicious hangover at work (he is still insisting that he is going to work) and when he gets home he is going to have to deal with me. I am not packing a lunch for him either.
