    so what cd's you guys listen to today
    waht books you read??
    waht tv you watch
    what food did you eat etc.

    today i listened to
    stan getz/kenny barron- people time
    harry connick jr. trio- lofty's roach soufle
    charlie parker/ dizzy gillespie- bird and diz
    wynton marsalis- the majesty of the blues
    doors- la woman
    alice deejay- who needs guitar anyway
    cannibal corpse- the bleeding
    radiohead- the bends

    as far as books (yes despite what people may try to tell you bass players do in fact know how to read)
    i took out the birth of bebop (a social and musical history) by scott deveaux from the library yesterday.

    i didn't watch a lot of tv, but i saw some crappy movie on stars about a blind woman who solves a murder, and then the ken burns jazz thing on pbs.

    for dinner i made steak topped with ziti and tomatoe sauce with garlic bread.

    how 'bout everybody else, lol the trivial stuff can be fun sometimes.

    I got up at 7AM this morning, plan to go to bed around 11PM or 11:30PM, get up again at 7AM

  3. Up at 5:15 am.

    Slimfast shakes for breakfast and lunch at work, with some Wheat Thins to give my tummy something to chew on :)

    Music I was playing at work: Rage Against the Machine (first CD), Cowboy Junkies, Puracane, Morcheeba, REM, U2's new one, Depeche Mode, and Dire Straits.

    Off at 2:30...to the gym!

    6:30 to 8:00 Switch from my RB5 to my new P-bass and play along with CDs, playing favorites and ear training/learning new songs I haven't figured out yet.

    Online till bedtime....TV doesn't come on often for me during the week. I do watch more on the weekends, especially at night as I can stay up late.

    Book reading at bedtime: usually look thru The Complete Guitarist, read some back issues of Bass Player, The Bass Book, my videogame mags :D

    *Get up around noon
    *I then parooze the internet for job listings (I am a college grad who cannot find work) and then say to hell with it
    *I then go to my favorite musics sites, like talkbass, and then check my e-mail, hoping my ex has replied to my e-mail begging for her to come see my next gig. I am a loser.
    *I then masturbate.
    *brekfast and a shower are the next thing in line for the day
    *So about 2 or 3 I head to my buddies house (my guyitar player) and we ride around town hitting the bookstores, music stores, etc.
    *We eat dinner at our singer's house, who has a family so she actually cooks.
    *we then head out looking for women at Wal-Mart or the local mall. we never find any.
    *I drop him off, hit the neighborhood pub, get drunk, and then go home.
    *I watch Howard Stern and then go to bed.

  6. Lemme be the first to say "JWC you are a true musician" lol
    Ahh since when do budding musos have respectable jobs, a girlfriend who is willing to be second place to oh that beautiful bass?
