Go East, Fairly Young Man!

Well folks, it's that time again! I'm heading off to Ukraine here in the next few weeks. I need to spend some time where nobody speaks English and everybody believes in bizarre conspiracy theories. So yeah, my relatives await me - and they have lots of vodka. OK, so that will be nice for about a week, then I'll head down to Turkey, which, unless you're new to this crappy blog, you'll know is my favorite place to visit on this Godforsaken planet. After around two years of writing a crapload of music, recording two poorly-selling albums and having to deal with Belltown's various drawbacks, I need to spend some time staring at the Mediterranean. After doing that two years ago, I came back, wrote and recorded Greater Seattle and subsequently wrote a lot of music that was on Instant Classics. For those of you not keeping score at home, those are my two albums. As you may know, I have an extremely dim view of Ukraine, but I like my relatives very much and there's always a lot of drinking that happens. Plus, I'm incorporating my birthday into this whole mix, so things should be fairly interesting. I'm looking forward to it. Till then, despite the fact that I'm working full-time, I'll try to notice things about Belltown.
