THE BEAST OF 2010 SO FAR…

it has been so full and so extreme i’ve barely had time to sleep, reflect or eat, let alone blog it. so making up for lost lost time…. mini novel would have to be written to express the range of emotions that have been soaring through the first wave of 2010 … i can only hint at them here, beginning with I AM STILL INFUSED AND INTOXICATED WITH #ILOVELIFE BLUE MOON…. then the story began (almost in chronological order) completed the MASTERING of my album, had the best japanese food, i found a much needed proactive agent to book MAdM OOOM for LIVE events in USA, took part in a circular group talk between 40 women, NYLON mag came to my house to observe my life, told the NME where i’ve been hiding and what i am coming out with, premiered the OOOM music video with the support of quicktime, participated in a discussion of “ART AS DECISION MAKING” at the DONALD JUDD foundation, saw marianne FAITHFUL perform, went to LA for the first time in over a year, while there: i went to a KINGS hockey game, did a signing for AMPEG at NAMM music convention, got reconnected with long lost allies: AMPEG, FENDER, DUNLOP, witnessed one of my dearest friends go into LABOUR!!!! did an interview with the BBC about being a bass player for an interesting series on comparing the different roles in bands, caught up with my parts of my ’90’s life left behind in that strangely melancholic sunny city, saw a magic cat crawl into bed with my two friends and declare it his new home, drove by where a used to live and waved goodbye to my past.

back EAST, visited my mother on her retreat near the ocean, donated to RED CROSS HAITI RELIEF (in USA text “Haiti” to # 90999), sang ozzy’s CHANGES for my friend jason under a WOLF MOON, experienced the epic beauty of KATE MCGARRIGLE’S LIFE at the most beautiful 24 hour funeral event in MONTREAL- where my old friend RUFUS sang a song in NOTRE DAME cathedral with the voice of a GODLY created ANGEL, finalized the art work for my new album, did a photo shoot for the cover of premiere woman’s music magazine VENUS, went to see OOOM FILM for the last time at the MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS (bye bye lady of shallot and the magic circle – an honor to have shared a physical space with you) and last night, went to an opening of FRED TOMASELLI listened to him speak with great delight and connect then had my mind blown by his work….

now skipping the SUPERBOWL party to write to you and try to schedule and master plan the LIVE EVENTS for me and ooom in 2010…. HOMEWORK for the LIFE I LOVE.
I WILL FIND YOU OUT THERE – LIVE – IN THE FLESH – LOUD – WITH HEART IN HAND.

    I hope this year brings lots of rewards. You deserve it after working so hard.
