Weekend Update

Ironically my name "Kale" is actually a leafy stationary vegetable (edible and decorative woopie!). And realistically I lived up to my name this weekend, almost three days of being a hermit and I finally feel ready to face school again. I sat around, napped a lot, ate even more and watched a lot of football. Three weeks to go till freedom.

Musical Artist of the Week: I had forgotten I bought their album for about two weeks, and since I remembered I haven't forgot again. The band is Tea Leaf Green and they opened for my favorite band Flowmotion at Summer Meltdown this August. If I wasn't so fixated on the fact that I was about to see the greatest band of all time, Flowmotion, I would have noticed that hanging in there right with them was another epic band, Tea Leaf Green. There isn't any other way to explain them really, epic is the perfect band. They aren't really a dance band, but they definitely aren't a chill band either, each song builds toward a resounding crescendo of sparkley soundscapes. They are like Grateful Dead holding Roman Candle's in a Wind Tunnel. If you want to check this band out 2006's "Rock and Roll Band" is a great starter album and introduces you to some of the more classic Tea Leaf Green songs.

Old Person Phrase of the Week: "Darn Tootin" only really corny people say this, but say it thay do. I don't really know what it means but it can be used in place of "Damn Right" and if you add a "yeehaw" afterward you basically are the biggest hick ever.

Nunivak Weather: Do people even care? Anyways its absolutely frigid, I did make it out yesterday to the Post Office and the corner's of my eyes crystallized so yeah pretty cold, and dark too, and unseasonably high pressure and clear skies, lets just hope that it stays that way for my departure from this rock in three weeks.
Personal Art Update: I made a great song this weekend (I won't upload it to this blog post but it should be up on the IAC player to the right or you can visit my artist page).

I've got a new method. I just listen to a great artist and make up my own lyrics inspired by the feeling I get from that song. I used the Tea Leaf Green song "Faced with Love" to inspire this one:

Love Overgrown

It doesn't really matter in the end
What you said or what I said
What we'll or what we did
But those messages we sent
Oh those messages we send (X2)

And When you feel all alone
And the walls come crashing down
And there's trouble all around
Let love come overgrown (X3)

Let those roots run deep
And your dreams escape your sleep
Go ahead and say your piece
But what does that even mean?
What does that even mean? (X2)

And When you feel all alone
And the walls come crashing down
And there's trouble all around
Let love come overgrown (X3)

My next big goal is to write the words and chords down on final pieces of paper so that I can start practicing them for memorization. Someday, maybe if I move back to Washington, I would like to start a band. I have a few people in mind for it, or I might have to go it alone, but either way, I want to bring complete songs to the table.
Health/Yoga/Fitness Update: After eating like a fat lard all weekend, cutting out on yoga lately, and sitting on my ass watching tv its high time I get back in gear for the next three weeks so that I don't feel like Jabba the Hut for Christmas break. I brought my yoga stuff with me to school and as soon as I get done with this update and my school work I'm gonna have a personal yoga sesh.

Lastly But Not Leastly: This weekend I started compiling a sort of "State of the Delta" Address. Its basic intentions are to record what I have learned over my two years hear and what my suggestions are for change. I have a few people I intend to send it to at the end of the year but its major recipient is someone who has achieved a much greater degree of influence recently then when I met them about a year and a half ago. I'll let you all know when its complete. Its going really well so far

Also, Tomorrow is the first day of December. My birthday is on the 12th of the month. An eerie exciting, prophetic feeling came over me last week when I realized something. You know how the Aztec calendar ends in 2012 and people think the world will end/or a new level of human existence will take place? Well my birthday will be 12-12-12 that year. What this basically means is that I'm pretty much like some sort of chosen one right? Like NEO in the Matrix, or that chick in the Fifth Element. Like I've been marked by interdemensional powers as the key to unlocking some pyramid of eternal truth or something. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! I knew it, I knew I was special. How cool is that, when armageddon is taking place and the world is crumbling in front of our eyes, just remember what I said today, 12-12-12 baby.

Thats right, the old Kaleskees called this one 4 years earlier all Nostrodamus style.


But hey the end of existence as we know it is still 4 years away so live it up and have an exponentially satisfactory week my good homies!

Maybe instead of Neo or the chick from the fifth element you could be Jesus's step-father?
