After a couple of months dreading, freaking out over and crying about it…I finally got on a plane. It was boring. I will admit, that whole taking off shit was not the business but I’m glad I finally got the chance to do it and I won’t be so scared the next time I have to – which is next week when we have to head back to LA. Speaking of, it’s weird in Virginia – but in a good way. Being from the desert and then moving to LA – I’ve never been around this much greenery. Also, there are A LOT of cows. Surprisingly it’s only smelled by one of their fields. I wish I could tell you about the wedding, but that’s yet to happen and I think I’ll walk away from that 50lbs heavier because there is not only cake, but A COOKIE BAR.

Musically, I got everything done last week for this week since I wouldn’t have time to sit and write everything. So what happened here…hmm, a really awesome interview, a little Foo Fighters and a helpful list if you’re into mainstream music and want to know what albums are out in June. Next week a review of one of my favorite records of 2015 so far, an interview with a well educated individual and a yet-to-be-picked cover song. Any suggestions?

Now I have to get back to helping with a wedding, looking at homes that look like life size dollhouses and the rest of my first adventure outside of California and further than Vegas. One last thing, I hope that family with the baby who cried for 3/4ths of the trip here…isn’t on the plane on the way home. Cute baby, but give that kid some Nyquil and call it a day.

Nope, one last thing and this time I’m serious…The Academy Is… is doing a 10 year and it’s not a tour or near me. If you could’ve seen my initial reaction, you would’ve thought I’d just won the lottery and then lost the ticket.

There was no other song I could’ve done this week because today I’m getting on a plane and really hoping that this pilot has learned to fly and well. I looked at the weather and I’m leaving the sunny beauty of SoCal for actual east coast weather…NO. I’ve been a desert rat my whole life, so seasons aren’t for me. Why and how can it be in the 80’s but raining? A mystery I’ll soon see for myself. I’m nervous as fuck but my BFF has assured me that the bumps just feel like hitting a pothole and her boyfriend said flying is just like riding a bus, only in the air. It’s just an air bus, it’s just an air bus. So while I do my best not to piss myself on this flight, enjoy this week’s covers!
