I can't believe how long I just talked on the phone to my old pal Andy Milne for. Two hours?...funny. It is always great to talk to him though as we share so many things in our "bandleading lives" He always has things to say and I think I help him when he bounces things off of me too. When we both lived in toronto we used to do that almost everyday. now that is funny.

I do want to watch the end of this film, Goodbye Lenin. Nice to see parts of Germany that I just saw when I was there.

Fun day....good rehearsal with the Rob clutton group (see us at the red guitar saturday night!!) Always fun watching Dylan at his Wednesday morning swim lessons. He swam the lenght of the pool at the Y today. Pretty amazing. Not as amazing as the proud smile on his face when he got to the end!

off to the is nice to just be hanging a bit. Not as much going on for me in the next couple weeks as there has been. Watching a movie is a bit of a treat.

Exclusivity is something that has always bothered me. I know whenever we talk about starting a collective, music organisation etc. it comes up. I noticed it today when I was down at JazzFM doing an interview. I felt included. I know the Djs, they play my Cd, I am welcome. Of course it is a nice feeling but it there is always something strange about that. I suppose it is a good reminder why a lot of my peers don't like the station. they are "not included" I am sure this will only last for a short time for me as my Cd will only be "new" for so long an my next record might not be so popular.

nice to get an order from Sweden today for my new Cd!
I wonder how much it will cost to mail one cd there?

Oh well. Glad they are interested.

Was fun to be at the station with my boys. they loved it and everyone was interested in them and talkative etc.

don't forget: Ratgate! at the Supermarket tonight. 930pm two sets. (air conditioned!!!)

Supermarket is on Augusa in Kensington market just south of college.
