Well it took long enough, that’s for sure! At least now I can say I have found a place to live in North Hollywood (NoHo) and the location couldn’t be a whole lot better located. Pretty much central area of NoHo with a walkscore of 92 out of 100. Being the car-less guy that I am, that’s one of the considerations I’ve had all along.
And look, my street comes complete with a homeless guy sleeping on his resident couch. Now that’s one ‘couch tour’ I can do without…
Well it’s been a hell of a journey, full of disappointed and certainly not over yet, HOWEVER I’m going out on a limb saying that I’ve got a place in North Hollywood. A place to start out calling HOME. At 3×5 meters, it’s bigger than many bedrooms you’ll find under a grand and seeing as I’ve got very little shit, it’ll feel right big I bet. Tall ceilings too. Score.
First off, I’m glad to be back home. Home being the outskirts of Hamburg Germany the last years. Before that, was Mannheim Germany and before that was Munich (nineties).
Wifey’s on vacation too so she’s got time to just hang out and that’s a nice thing as well. Since our dude dog died almost 2 weeks ago, it’s been really lame energy around here. Now that I’m back I hope I’m should be able to distract the girls (wifey & chick dog) from some all of that mutual sadness and brighten things up a bit around here.
First thing I have to do is get on the TIME man! It’s so easy to let jet lag get the best of you if you don’t get right on the local schedule. I stayed up until 6am last night and forced myself to wake up 4 hours later. Hopefully that jolts me on the time frame. We’ll see how dead I feel later today.
Not long after being home again or arriving fresh in the United States, I always pick out the little things that one continent has better than the other. You know, the grass is always greener (or stronger) on the other side of the fence. Something like that. Anyway, today’s difference is the Mayonnaise.
I know, seems like a small gripe. Sure. BUT after years of questioning why the heck the Europeans can’t master this stuff is beyond me. Even worse, the capitalistic US of A hasn’t managed to strike a deal with fukn Aldi or some other food giant around here? I’m telling you…a fortune lies in that arrangement for sure, ha!
I’m sure to come up with other puny reasons to miss America. Of course a big reason is echophonics! My new band. Fresh together, a couple very good gigs under our belt, a game plan and some natural chemistry together. Ja, ja…I had to muck things up by going home. 🙁 Of course the plane ticket was booked before the band even existed but still sucky timing all around.
It’s just a matter of time before everything comes together. I’m quite certain of that. Hang around and find out what happens…
