Lost In Music

It’s Hump Day, Wednesday. It’s been a week since my Arcade Fire meltdown. I think I’m better, but in the back of my ind perhaps a brain scan would be a good thing. Of course that costs a lot of money, and I don’t have insurance yet, that become active on June 1st. I think the answer could lay within my gray matter. It could be reassuring to know that something was actually going on up there and it’s not all echoes of footsteps in a long dark hallway. And the cobwebs, they certainly would have to be cleaned out.

Last night I watched the series finale of Gilmore Girls. I have been watching the show since it was on Friday nights before a show called Popular. Popular is on DVD and worth checking out if you can. Lorelei and Rory are speeding through the universe now. It was a good ending, not bittersweet, just sweet. I admit I was getting tired of it the past season so I guess they pulled the plug at the right time. They didn’t kill off Lorelei’s father, Richard. I guess they didn’t want too much reality creeping in. Christiane Amanpour was about as real as the show got last night.

Rory went off to cover Barack Obama’s campaign for an Internet magazine, Lorelei stayed behind in Stars Hollow, planning to continue to her Friday night dinners with Emily and Richard. Lorelei also hooked up with Luke again as if there was another way to carry on that relationship. I read somewhere that Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson couldn’t stand each other, which probably added to the romantic tension to their characters. It was a sad happy to see it go, not like the way Six Feet Under ended where I was a puddle. Not a poodle.

I didn’t mention this but last Wednesday I had to go back to Wanker Banker. That was odd. It was official business, I had to drop off something for Greg Stevens and volunteered since I was headed up there for lunch anyhow. That could’ve been an ingredient in my momentary lapse into unreasonableness. The place wasn’t as busy or as crowded as it was when I left. I talked to the IT guys, still as nutty as ever, saw Christina who really misses me, saw Brenda as well who looked great and promised to have a drink with me when she gets off her diet after Memorial Day.

This morning I ran into Rob Jakacki who still works at Wanker Banker. He looked great as well. He was also the first person I knew into Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. A very hip investment banker with pretty good taste in music. He seemed genuinely happy to see me and it was nice for me as well. The day was busy for me and at one point I had to go to the bank with Tom Chin. As part of management, eventually I would have to go to the bank all by myself (who’s a big boy?). That was fine, Tom and I noticed the Emergency Services guys outside the Waldorf Astoria with submachine guns indicating that someone big was staying there.

It was a beautiful yet hot day. At 6:00AM it was 70 degrees out. Too crazy. Within 10 minutes of being outside with Tom Chin in the sun, it had turned to night. Dark clouds rolled in and it was nighttime at 4:00 in the afternoon. Totally crazy, and it’s been rain rain rain ever since. I’m just going to chill out and wait for Lost to come on tonight. That’s it for me today. Love to all.
