TomBlog - in a reflective mood

Let us all just take a moment to look at the clouds. Or just wonder why for christ sake? This might cheer you up after considering that.

Haha. Strange. Maybe I'm not smoking enough spliffs.

Very introspective. And yes, it certainly did cheer me up. May we never grow old of the imagination.

My Mum is going to love that cloud website... Bless her.

Things I have reflected on today: 'How sick is too sick to go to The Black Keys?' & 'Is five pairs of the same shoes in different colours really too many? And if so, who cares?'

Also a headfucker - March of the Penguins.

Who are these so-called "celebrities" who have eaten their ways out of chocolate rooms?
Have any of you ever heard of Cherie Booth and Lord Brockett?

And speaking of the Penguins movie, I just learned the factoid that in France they have actors talking like people talking like penguins (as in "Here honey, I'm going to roll Junior over to you. I said now, honey, not that you ever listen to me. Aw, now look what you've done! It's all over. We're through." The American studio threw out that track and replaced it with Mr. voice-of-a-god Morgan Freeman. (10 bonus points for answering the following question: What does this say about our cultures?)

Cherie "Bang Bang" Booth and Lord "Meatpacker" Brockett are both the sort of celebrity that would have eating their way out of a chocolate room in their contracts.

Tom,
I am contacting you because my wife and I are coming to see you at The House of Blues in San Diego on May 20th...I am 57 and have been a big fan since I heard a snippet of "In Our Gun" on a review on Public Radio...I bought it immediately and listened in awe...I said to everyone I knew (and many complete strangers) "This band is where the Beatles would be if they were still making music (I didn't even realize that you were from Liverpool) Anyway---the reason I'm writing is that my son, Wes,(a very good musician in his own right-mostly a great drummer)is 16--We drove him up to see you guys in Anaheim for his 15th birthday a few years ago and we went up and bought front row seats at the Gibson a few weeks ago just to see you, Ben and Ian---nice job, by the way...So here is the point....They won't let him in to San Diego HOB to see you guys because he is under 21...Is there ANY WAY POSSIBLE that you guys would even think about getting me, my wife Candice, and Wes in backstage...We wouldn't even talk or pester you all in any way...I just want him to see the show...I bought three tickets for dinner and seats upstairs...He has a picture of you and one of Ian that he drew hanging on his bedroom wall right next to a photo of The Who (which is the only band he loves more the Gomez)We'll bring the drawings along if you insist...Write back soon...just kidding....but write back.

I read this on the San Diego HoB site.. hope it helps!

"Any guest under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent, or guardian who is at least 25 years old. There are a limited number of tickets for guests under the age of 21. "

You might want to call the box office to confirm, 619.299.BLUE (2583)

Hi Choona,
Thanks for the note...I called HOB in SD already and the Director of Operations was very nice but said that an "over 21" concert won't allow under 21's...He offered to have Gomez sign their new CD if I brought it in to HOB though...a nice gesture---but I just was hoping to see the show with my son...Kind of silly, but hey, we love these guys...I don't even like going to concerts anymore but I really think these guys are special. Thanks again though.
Mike

I just bought the new album off of Amazon where they let you download it after purchase which means I've already listened too it on loop for the past two days and it is AMAZING. Seriously, stop worrying because its dancing around the apartment like a fool good. I keep finding myself singing Girlshapedlovedrug and Hamoa Beach either of which should be released as a single. In the meantime, let me know which radio stations in LA to harrass into playing your music.

I have a chocolate craving now, but that room must be pretty dirty, how on earth do you hire a cleaner for something like that?.
I can't help thinking though that the chocolate room will become that scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Love the dog & kid picture, brings a good ol' smile to the face.

Yeah, the dog/kid one is great, but i didn't feel the same vibe from the others so much. There was one other I really liked, but that one is definately the best. It's got this whole sort of bittersweetness to it, it reminds me of being a kid, and having all this hope, but at the same time reminds me how few of my dreams came true when I grew up. It's sad, in a way... but in a beautiful sort of way. Because it's not a tragic or helpless sort of sadless, it's an accepting, c'est la vie, sort of sadness. I like it.
