David Byrne

had a dream last night that david byrne came to my show to check me out, and a string of technical difficulties continually delayed my start time and pissed him off. the equipment wouldn't work, the bass player was missing, then finally we get on stage, half of the microphone (yes, only half) is missing, then the mic stand was collapsing and the levers were stripped so it couldn't be tightened. david got more upset, i grew discombobulated. i never actually got to start the show. so it goes.

Sex, God, Rock 'N Roll

song of the day: Sooner Or Later (English Beat)
word of the day: lassapso (is that how you spell it?)

yesterday and today i've been going through audio of the dharmapalooza concerts, picking songs which will appear on the DVD. we're now discussing possibly making it a double DVD. there sure are a lot of songs. i'm pretty darn happy with it, actually, the sound is rockin', songs are kickin'. i already like it better than any live stuff i've ever recorded before, including 16 nudes and late stuart davis. i think this live DVD is going to become a classic of small-scale sorts. sort of like 16 nudes. it's interesting to note that 16 nudes has out-sold everything else i've done by a large margin. sales to date of 16 nudes is over 10,000, the next closest runner up would be nomen and self untitled at 5,000 + each. it'll be good to have another live album out there, and i've never released a DVD before. i'm still not sure when this will come out, but we're hoping fall (this fall, as in Oct / Nov 2004). tentative title: Sex, God, Rock 'N Roll. so far i've listened to show number one, today i'm going through number two and looking for tuning issues, tempo problems, what we can live with and what we can't. the first night was pretty solid, the largest number of problems were with my solo set...

i love diet coke

Song Of The Day: Evil, Stevie Wonder (evil, why have you engulfed so many lives? leaving...)
Word Of The Day: FRUHS-jhok (it's a noun in IS meaning "a laugh that is stifled or supressed"

dharmapalooza newzaaa

sunday after my talk, ken wilber hits the stage, and spends the afternoon asking the audience questions. we spend (when i say we, it's 98% ken) three hours talking about ITP, the reality of building an organization- much less a 2nd tier organization, and what it's like working in the trenches for the integral vision. ken gives a loving, brilliant, and very sober account of the difficulties and struggles involved in this emergent dimension of being. i find it synchronistic in a way, because before he got there i had been wondering if i was too sober in my talk saturday morning.

Dharmapalooza twoza

sunday i get up and scurry off to Naropa's Nalanda campus (that's where all the talks are being held). we begin again with meditation, and then i talk a bit about the changes at Dharma Pop. for the last year Dharma Pop was comprised of Vipassana, Rinzai, Shambhala, and Soto branches. Soto was the management branch, and handled all the details of running a record. soto was staffed by kismet smith, rob berg, jason digges, and chad phillips. they worked very very hard for long hours and no pay, and i am very moved and grateful for how generously they gave of themselves to the cause.

dharmapalooza is thruza

sorry i haven't written in a few days, since dharmapalooza started (thursday night) it has been non-stop. i picked matt (my drummer) up from the airport thursday night, we came back and rehearsed until 2:30 in the morning. it was so unbelievably loud we seriously worried the police would be over any moment. it also happened to be the first day my next door neighbors had been in their new house, and it sounded like a monster truck over here.
