I procrastinated all week! All week. Like it’s Friday at 10:30pm as I start this. This week was busy. I started at my new job. I biked around. I ate lots of kale and spinach. I got two jiu jitsu classes in. I accidentally fell asleep watching The Newsroom (not a strong endorsement for that show. It’s like Aaron Sorkin made a sitcom without a laugh track) and slept for 12 hours. I read books. I climbed the mountains and sang the signs that I like to sing. I stole lines from Chappelle’s Show. And now I’m at a concert. Writing this on my phone.
I haven’t been to a concert in forever. And I haven’t brought my DSLR to a show since I saw Zammuto.
I don’t like being that guy at the camera with the camera in everybody’s face. I mean, I do. I totally do. But why record your life to watch later? Now I bring a compact digital if anything. I’ve only ever shot film at a show once. And it was with a gimmicky camera. I’d be too embarrassed to share them here. So instead I’m just going to phone this one in and reflect on how phoning something into my passion project feels. Hopefully I’ll have something better next week.
