    I wanted the word to be free, but free is too much work. Plus I'm not totally, yet.

    Spent the last hour watching Game of Thrones in the lounge. Artists are the best: someone hung a bedsheet and rear projected the finale to a rabid group of watchers. Community is part of the work, not literally, but maybe metaphorically. Shared groans and glee. Now it is 10:22pm and I am back in the studio, blasting the Strokes again into my headphones and working on this.

    Quickly, because maybe after I finish, and prance around, and convolute my body, and feel the music in my chest and spine and pelvis, ankles raising and lowering, knees carrying the rhythm, heels hitting the floor so hard I wonder if my neighbors can hear, and I wonder if I should turn off the light so anyone walking by can't see my shoulders and arms flailing, but really, I am beyond caring.... maybe I can get some work done.

    After a piece of Green & Blacks 85% dark chocolate. And the rest of this album, seriously one of my favorite summer time listens. Pull up "Hard to Explain" online, and tell me if you can sit still?

    And ok, no spoilers, but man, the finale. What?!?!?

    And for those of you who don't, maybe you should ... take it or leave it....
