Allie gave me a bunch of Peach Kelli Pop merch and I had a nice chat with Kate Nash and she said my girlfriend is beautiful. It was a good night.
Album progress: 6 songs finished.
Hungover morning listening to George Harrison, thinking of new songs and working on my portfolio. Not too bad.
I think during the week my girlfriend was here, I gained back all 17 pounds that I had lost the month previous. Because when I’m with her I don’t feel like utter shit and I can eat like a normal person.
My girlfriend will be here in less than 24 hours and instead of cleaning my apartment I’m having a half drunk anxiety attack because I’m unable to fall asleep and watching law and order to try to distract myself.
You can easily gauge my depression/anxiety by the number of empty ice cream containers in my rubbish.

How long did you have that feeling with, for example, “You Won’t Miss Me”? Is it predictable at all how long it takes?
I wrote the first verse and the chorus in like 20 minutes. Then it took me three weeks to come up with the second verse. It’s not always predictable… for instance, “Pike Street” and “Courtney” from the first record and “Astronaut” from the second were started around 2006-07 and didn’t become fully fleshed-out songs until a few weeks before recording. “Secret Song” I wrote in 20 minutes while driving home from work. “Trouble” took like 3 months, “All The Time” took less than an hour… I never know what I’m getting myself into, basically.
Every time it’s the same thing. We finish one record, I get sick of the songs in it, we keep practicing because we need to keep playing shows and I get worried that I’ll never be able to write another song ever again.
And then all of a sudden all these ideas start popping up. As of right now there are 7 songs in various stages of completion.
My main problem now is with lyrics… the last three records were pretty much born out of frustration and loneliness. Now I’m in a happy relationship. I have no idea what will come out.
We’re playing a show on Thursday.
Last time I was at this venue, Bleached was headlining.
To say I’m stoked is an understatement.
Can’t fucking sleep. Because of reasons.
