I'm so Lonely

While it was great to see Chris, Katie, Erica, and to finally meet Fuzzy. It has force me to realize ,or admit, how truely lonely I am here. I know I have only really been living here a few weeks, and I have not gotten out much, thanks to my job, but those only feel like excuses. For the first time in a long time, I really don't know anybody around.
Most of the people I do know in Jackson are married and have kids. Or they knew me when I last lived here. But I am not the person I was a decade ago(Really! who is?). I don't want to be that person and I probably couldn't be if I tried.
I miss my friends in H'burg! I have never been mister popular, but I had a good circle of friends who would call and go out with me. Hell! I am on My Space mainly to stay in touch with them. That and to hunt down the AmeriFolks.
I guess, I just got to get out and make new friends here. But How? Where? These are the problems as I see it. I doubt I will make many friends at work. Its just not that type of place. While I do know alot of people at church, most of them fall into the married with children catagory mentioned above. Other than the occasional rock show, I don't really go anywhere else. Hell I don't really have time to go anywhere else.
So do I accept my solitude? Do I go out night after night till I burn out? Do I find a new interest to try and make new friends? Do I just hope and pray new friends fall into my lap?
These are the thought that ramble threw my brain. Sorry to anyone who reads these, I know it sounds like self pity, but I am just using these as a sounding board for my thought process. I swear!

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! Enjoy your day with Turkey, Family, and Football. And Yes! I am being sincere!

WoW! I am a sell out....

So I got a myspace page. Here is the link. I mainly got this so I can keep in touch with people better. Really I need all the help I can get with that.
I will still be maintaining this Blog though. I have decided to keep this as my more serious, more thougth out, or longer writing blog. Any writing I do on My Space, will more than likely be short and stupid. Alot like MySpace.
Of course the best blog got is IPW vidoes. Which has been updated with three new songs/videos(First is the new Johnny Cash video; the second is from the new Black Keys ablum, and the third is a repost of the Stevie Wonder on Sesame Street).
Anyway you all should keep out all my blog regularly, because you never know what you will find.

Super All Star Blues Band

It was awesome! So aewsome I would have exploded in my pants had it been any better.
The Super All Star Blues Band is/was made up of Boddy Rush, Cary Hudson, Kenny Brown, and Cedric Burnside. The crowd was full of assholes, but the band was rockin' in the most supernatural way.Words will fail to express the greatest of the time had. I do wish more of the band had gotten to sing, but it still kicked ass!!!

I'm Back!

Yep! I am finally moved into my place and have my internet connected.
This means alot more posted on this, my blog.

So, what have I been doing seen moving out of the H'burg. Mainly, I have been working. Learn the ins and outs of my new job. Do I love my new job. No! But I don't think I will ever love a job. My view of a career is that it is what allows you to so other things that you love to do. Hopefully, after a few months of the shitty grunt work I will move up to stuff I like to do. Hopefully!
Anyway, It is interesting to be back in Jackson. I haven't lived here for so long. I don't really know anyone here anymore. That sometimes leads me to being depressed because I really don't have anyone to talk to. But I also forces me to go out and meet new people or find people I have not seen in awhile.

My job helps with this a little because people wander in to eat and see me. I have had this happen a few time now. Travis, who I worked with in H'burg; Jerry, who I went to High School with; and Psycho Erin, who is crazy and Chris Reid dated her even after I told him not to. Plus there is the odd time when me and a strange stand there looking at each other trying to figure out if we know each other. The best example of this is when a cute little red head asked if she know me. I have seen her eat there once seen then, so I hope she is/become a regular. He He He!!!

I really like my new apartment. It is pretty large for one person and relitively cheap.
It is Belhaven(here on out to be called the Haven), which is pretty much in the center of town. This means no long drives after I go out to the bar or to see a show. Plus I am right down the street from one of my favorite resteraunt, Keifers. I would like to say I have gotten to know the neighborhood better, but its been pretty rainy and miserible here lately. But I got time.

I have not gone out much seen being home. I took one of my favorite people in the world out to eat, when she flew into town for the night(Thats you, Sarah Luckey!) I took one my fellow MITs out for some drinks, and I went and saw the Griffenz when they played W.C. Dons. I do plan to go out the next two weekends. An all star blues band featuring Bobby Rush, Cary Hudson, Kenny Brown, and Cedric Burnside is playing in town Saturday. Then the Friday after Thanksgiving, Jimbo Mathus is playing. Hopefully, a good time will be had by me.

The only thing I really miss about H'burg, are the friends I left behind and doing my show.

Well, that pretty much catches you few up about what is going on with me. I hope be more active on this thing now.

Democrats win control of both houses of Congress for first time since 1994

I wish I could have voted! I did not get moved and registered in time to meet the voting requirements. That is that here in Mississippi it would have made a difference. This state is strongly in the hands of the Empire...I mean the Republicans.
Do I expected much change from this? No!
But now Bush doesn't have his "mandate" from the people to do what ever he wants. Like kill hundred US troops a month in Iraqi, while North Korea builds "The Bomb".
