I went to life drawing class last night. It was fantastic. The model was brilliant.

I’m impressed with the result of yesterdays healthcare vote. It was hard. Insurance companies are evil and the way the republican party dealt with it all was very disturbing. They pray upon peoples worst fears. It’s shameful.
Congratulations AMERICA. Yet another historic step.

Last week, 2 men rolled into our communal back yard here in Berlin, tooled up with chainsaws and hatchets. Some property developers are about to rip the place apart to build some pokey apartments. That’s a reality in Berlin and I kind of resigned myself to it but it was sad to see what they did. The men spent 5 days tearing these two massive wall climbers down. They had grown there for 40 years. Hundreds of birds and bats nested there.
Nora took some pictures out on the street of them filling their huge truck. When she turned her camera on the two guys, lazily leaning against their van, the bigger one ran at her, grabbed her wrist and twisted it behind her head. Nice people.

I had until the past week been going to bed between 1 and 4 in the morning and getting up at 8. After arriving back from New York, my jetlag sent me to bed before midnight. I thought I would stick to this and I have experienced much longer days. 1pm feels like 4 or 5. 6pm feels like 9 or 10. The last week felt like a week instead of the usual WHOOSH “God is it Friday again!”
I have been listening to the absolute finished album. The last stage is puting the transition between each song. Some songs need an extra second before they begin, some need an extra pause when they end. Emily and Joe at the Lodge (uh!) did a great job. We also changed the mix of the first track of the record. I’m relieved we reopened this track. It’s the first track of my solo record. Ohhheee!
God. It’s snowing again!

The long cold Berlin winter is almost over. The clouds are shaking off their last snow. It’s still cold though. Seems to have remained below zero for 3 months. I was told the Berlin winter was tough and thought yeahhh but god, it really has been relentless. I grew tired of looking like an arctic explorer and went back to normal clothing but it’s a big sacrifice.
Wreckorder (revised) is about to be cut. This is the final cut. I promise. Then it’s handed to organised people to get it ready for release. Not sure when this will be. It is so much tighter now than it was. The two songs I took off just didn’t fit. They will make cool b sides or something… can we say b sides anymore… sounds odd… Anyways it’s all done.
