I discovered recently that my friend Greg, who plays dobro, also loves Townes Van Zandt, and he was keen to play some songs with me. So it happened on Sunday at Timbre @ Gilman, and we’ll try it again soon. Here’s “Pancho & Lefty”, and “White Freight Liner” with Aman Wadhwa guesting on lead guitar.
I took over 900 pictures in Japan, so I have to resist the temptation to share the best pictures (maybe about 50-75?) here. Instead, here are some pics of Naoko, Zen & I, seeing as we seldom take pics together with one of us being the cameraman.
Here’s a video of my buddy Seth and me doing one of my original songs, “Omniscient”.
This used to be a mess…
This was once horrible…
This looks great now!!
This intersection was erased and re-drawn a million times… looks like this is the final version!
This used to be a cramped and awful space… now looks wide and green!!
A nice wide avenue!!
I wish all sidewalks in Singapore were this spacious!!
City comfort at its finest!!
What a wonderful neighbourhood!!
This road was also totally re-drawn, now it looks comfortable and fresh!!
Love this part of Singapore…
Hooray for Beauty World!!
Used to be a parking lot…
Big and wide!
The subway entrance.
My old neighbourhood…
I bought a Time Riders book for Zen.
Had a great Thursday night out this week checking out the open mic jam session at Sportsman. Wow – loads of fun, with so many friends coming out to jam!!
Wednesday night we had an office party, and after that I went out to see some live music at Hood Cafe in Bugis. Pretty cool – Huxley’s 19 years old, studying music in the US and is gonna be a big star, and Amanda Tee’s a talented local Singapore musician (and a fellow lefty) who plays most nights a week. Great music!!
Two lefties. Amanda always makes a funny face when she takes pictures…
Went to the doctor today and got great news – recovery from my hernia surgery from last week (January 5th) is going very well, and I’ll soon be fully recovered. I’m also told that I can go back to the gym in March, which is great news for me – I used to go five times a week, and was as physically fit as a teenager, when I found out that I needed back surgery in August 2014 and had to stop going to the gym altogether.
Yesterday I had hernia surgery. It wasn’t a lot of fun, but I was only away from home about 30 hours and only had to spend one night in the hospital. Not bad!
The hospital took great care of me, and even the food was pretty good! I’m glad it’s taken care of, I feel 20 years younger!
