I haven't seen a good campfire in a while. It's nice to look at.
Yesterday, I did a good show and Toby and Andrew came running back stage to hug me and then I played for them. Sylvia and Clarke came, too.
After, I saw the coolest dance I'd ever seen. It was a Russian Group called "Black Sky White". Fuckin' amazing. It was like Brothers Quay, stop-motion animation (like the Tool video), except live.
Around the campfire, someone came by to tell us they had just seen The Madagascar Institute (some friends of mine from Brooklyn) who had a fort made from metal scraps with fire cannons mounted at the top. When he mentioned they had a game of tug-of-war
a lady who had fallen asleep by the fire suddenly awoke and said in my direction, "Winning wars is like winning an earthquake."
What did I do? Where's my beer? I've got some new guilt to wash down.
