It is approaching 6 am and I am wide awake. I am stone cold sober and some what at peace with the world as it is right now.
I’ve ben in Los Angeles since Tuesday and its so great to be back. I feel so at home here. I honestly wish I didn’t have to leave…but that is still a few weeks away, however time flies when you are having fun.
In relaxing and enjoying my down time we have been pretty busy. The first Hotel Cafe show was a hit.. It sold out and I even watched people get turned away at the door. I met fans that had flown in from around the world to see his show.. It absolutely blows my mind. When I first met Sam he had only written one of his own songs and played rolling stones and johnny cash covers in a coffee shop in the part of Vancouver that we live in and now this.. It is amazing..
We attended the premiere for Twilight : Eclipse this past week and when we got out of our car we were greeted by 3 girls who were huge fans of Sam’s as well as some fans screaming from the bleachers across the road. One of the girls was even wearing a t-shirt made for the Justin Nozuka tour… It is amazing and I cannot begin to describe how… How fucking cool it is (for the lack of a better description)… It seriously excites me…
The premiere was a blast, we had a great time and got to meet and see a lot of people.. I never new that the Nokia Theatre was so big. I have only ever heard of it and never been. Infact, of all the time I have spent in Los Angeles I have never been downtown LA.. It is actually kind of charming.. It almost makes you forget how twisted and strange this city is.. But I am hooked. I am addicted and I feel alive again..
I am beyond inspired.. I want to do so much right now… I have this overwhelming desire to be successful again.. Something I have lost over the past few months.. I have literally been stuck in mental turmoil. I have been so unhappy and dealing with a lot of un needed bullshit that I seem to have forgotten what I want and I have forgotten how to be human.. When I am at home I feel like a fucking robot and it destroys me inside… I have a hard time saying no to things I know I need to be saying no to.. I am very easily tempted in Vancouver to party and just get off track but it makes forgetting everything else easy. I am not dumb and I know that’s no way to deal with a situation, but I get bored easily and I always need to be on the go.. I hate drama, I hate trivial BS and I strongly dislike people who bring me down or slow me down.
I have made some amazing friends over the last few days and today we had to say goodbye to two of the most beautiful(inside and out) people I have met in a very long time. I know I will see them both again but we all live busy lives so know one really knows when, on the upside I now have a couch to sleep on in New York City, something I have longed for, for a long time. Everyone I know in the NYC area all live in Jersey or Connecticut so it makes finding a reason to go to New York hard.. Not that I need a reason, it just helps when you know people there.. And I have been there I don’t know how many times and I’ve never seen the damn Statue of Liberty.. Like wtf is that all about.. When I was in London the first thing I did was went to see the London Bridge, San Fran: the Golden Gate Bridge, San Antonio: The Alamo, Chicago: Sears Tower and the the fountain from Married with Children… I am a sucker for cheesy tourist traps and it itches me under the skin that I have not seen that god damned statue. I’ve been to Times Square and seen Madison Square Gardens and walked through some of central park, but that big old statue will be the death of me..
We also went to the premiere for Kristen’s new film “Welcome to the Rileys” and I cannot say enough good things about this movie. In my opinion, you can’t not like this film. The cast (as small as it is) is amazing. Gandolfini plays a different role from the Sopranos but you cannot help but fall in love with his character. Melissa Leo is AMAZING as is Kristen.. her character Allison/Malory, is very different from the few roles i have seen her play and she is played so well that you feel everything that she feels during the course of the movie.. I was actually sad when it ended and I wanted to know more. I want to watch it again and again. From what I have heard though it will not be released until the fall… 😦
Other then that I have not done to much.. I went out on Wednesday night to watch my boys in Divide the Day play a show at some weird club in Hollywood… It was actually kind of neat the way the club was set up.. It was half indoor half out door but everything else about the place was right twisted.. For instance, they served free drinks until 11 and then charged you 4 dollars for a soda and 10 dollars for a drink after 11.. Women had to be 18+ to get in, 21 to drink and then guys only over 21 were aloud in.. I get why they do it, but that is fucking wrong.. Like… Nothing about being at that place made me feel comfortable aside from my circle of friends as it were and it made no sense why the guys were playing there, it was a dance club with a hard western rock band playing in the middle of the night, to what seemed like a crowd of unwilling ears, however the group of people they brought out had a good time, it just went a little later then I would have hoped…
England plays Germany tomorrow..
Sam plays Hermosa Beach tomorrow..
Its now almost 24 hours since I started this post so I’m going to play the sleeping game.
