    What’s this about I don’t believe in the Bible? Of course I do. I have it right here.

Err… Fuck it, close enough.

    Hanging out in the CiTR lounge before the Vampire’s Ball kicks off at 1am Pacific on 101.9fm Vancouver http://CiTR.ca 

They killed my favorite parking lot close by here so I’m having to park 1km away, hence the not-so-rock n roll footwear for the hike in and out.

    Finally did get a few quiet minutes to shoot that video blog. Now onto editing.

I’ll probably post it on the weekend.

    Under My Skin Podcast #2

    Under My Skin Podcast with Pyra Draculea: Episode #2, August 20 2014 by Pyra Draculea on Mixcloud

    Since I was posting pics from the Slash show, figured I’d post the new episode of my blah blah blah podcast, in which I spend about half of it blathering about the Slash show.

    Destruction

    Plucking out the fattest blueberries
    to pile in my open palm
    —fingertips still sore from blues licks at the week’s guitar lesson—
    and consume

    Listening to every unverified track in my iTunes
    to cull out the garbage
    —incoherent electronic babbling from distorted mouths—
    and condemn

    The berries are mostly signal
    little noise
    few are discarded

    The tracks not so much
    little signal
    many to discard

    I am sick of so much noise versus signal
    —though I still respect unabashed genuine noise for noise’s sake—

    I want a vast collection of golden nuggets
    and nothing made of lead
    sweet plump berries, not underwhelming sour ones.

    Tonight I am a monster
    devouring the berry bush’s children.
    Deleting trash
    and killing dreams

    And I shall sleep just fine
    slumber visions of blueberries and blue eyes
    disturbed only by dreams of bleeding fingers
    from endlessly bending Les Paul strings

    I grow more callous as my fingers do.

    Ah, that annoying moment when you’re trying to record an acoustic cover video blog of “14 Years” in the jam space and your neighbours show up and start cranking their shit up. 

Sigh. Well, they gotta go for a weed break sooner or later…
