Tension and release. Theme and variation. Rhythm and pitch. I went to music college in New Orleans with VJ Hyde. Books and pens. We met across the street from Cafe DuMonde. Beignets and coffee. His hair was dyed red, his eyes were as wide as Decatur street. Tourists and hobos. I am a cynical dude; I thought his zeal for life was just a side effect of a Saturday night in the French Quarter. It was not. I didn’t make any friends during my first semester at college, I made good grades. Dork and nerd. Then, I met VJ. Grades plummeted and love for life skyrocketed. Butlers and snakes. We moved to Chicago together in 2001. The night we arrived, someone broke into our truck and stole all his stuff. Guitars and amps. Many years have passed, many things have happened, his band made a great record. Candles and Bombs. From: http://rockproper.com/go-home-robot/candles-and-bombs.html
