Hey party people. Got a few real world things coming up, which I must share with you:

Thing 1: On April 27th I’ll be in Boston at the Rethink Music conference (a Harvard/MIDEM/Berklee College of Music joint). I think my panel’s at 4:45. And I think I’m doing something at the Berkman enter while I’m down there.

Thing 2:

Saturday, May 14th I’ll be playing Kingston with Dave Norris & Local Ivan at The Mansion. I believe it will be six Canadian dollars. (Here’s the Facebook event.) Next:

Thing 3:

Saturday, June 11th we’re playing Ottawa. I don’t know who the opener will be yet, but I’m sure whoever it is will be great. I’m trying to only play one show a year in my hometown so if you miss this sucker I’ll see you in 2012.  (Here’s the Facebook event.)

If you can attend or know of anyone who might, please spread the word. Thanks!

I’m taking my new purple pills and they seem to be going ok. In the meantime there have been a couple of interesting articles lately on the subject of shitty brains that I’d like to share:

The first is titled ‘Can a Single Pill Change Your Life?‘ It was linked around all over the place, described as an investigative report on whether Ecstasy/MDMA can be used instead of or as a supplement to traditional talk therapy.

A few pages in I became aware this was published in Oprah Magazine of all places. So I’m reading waiting for the end of the article where the author realizes drugs are bad and you should never try them ever for any reason. At the conclusion of the article she decides to undergo the MDMA therapy herself. “Ah, here it is,” I think smugly. But then she’s just totally cured of her issues. Basically Oprah just told me to do a bunch of Ecstasy. Well OK.

The other one was in The Economist for some reason about a computer program that can replace talk therapy:

Cognitive-bias modification (CBM) appears to be effective after only a few 15-minute sessions, and involves neither drugs nor the discussion of feelings. It does not even need a therapist. All it requires is sitting in front of a computer and using a program that subtly alters harmful thought patterns.

Sitting in front of a computer you say? I’M IN. So I get to the end of the article and not only do they not describe what the program actually does, there’s no download link or anything. What the hell.

Well, February blew if you’re keeping track. Mark that one off and throw it in the stupid garbage.

On the up side I’ve got some shows booked in Kingston (May 14) and The Elmdale (June 11). Once I firm those up I’ll post the details. Should be some more coming also. I’m actually looking forward to those shows which is a nice change.

My Mac struggles seem to have evened out. My trusty MXL v67 mic started acting up so I replaced that. I’m thinking the new brain meds might not be doing the trick anymore so I’m gonna see a dude about that (a doctor, not just any guy). Also my cheap little Nanopad I was enjoying seems to have stopped working. What do you have to do in this life for things to always work and never cause any problems? I thought that was what I paid taxes for.
