The past few days 1

I've been going to sleep later and later everyday since I'm currently in Zaragoza and willbe traveling to Texas next week to do a few shows with Huecco, the artist from Madrid I currently play guitar for. Last night went to bed almost at 8am. Of course, that means I woke up at around 5 in the afternoon. Guess I was tired.

Yesterday played an interesting set at The Penguin Row, the pub I play in every monday night. Did a mash up of a couple of my songs with Silvio, AC/Dc, Sabina, Pablo Milanes, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears,.... considering I broke the top E string in the first song, I kinda of stretched. Had left spare strings in a backpack back home so was playing as gentle as I could so as not to pop another.

OSCARS - Watched on Canal + . I thought Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were great. Jeff Bridges speech was a little long but heartfelt. Sandra Bullock was cool on stage althought I think she really thought she didn't deserve it. Can't really comment on that cause I've only seen Meryl Streep's performance ( on a flight from Philly to Madrid ) and I loved her. Meryl is just incredible. They should just create a category for her.

The dance number sucked. Well, it didn't suck, but didn't find it compelling enough to sit through it.
I think a lot of the things that go on in these type of shows are actually better at the venue than on tv.

Christoph Waltz was amazing in Inglorious Basterds. When I saw the film I knew that perfomance was deserving of an oscar.
Haven't seen any of the movies nominated for Best Picture aside from Basterds.
I probably won't be seeing Avatar, have never liked those types of films, although I'm curious about the 3D. Maybe when I get to Texas on sunday, I'll go to the movies and catch up.

JLS - On friday we went to Madrid and played Jimmy Jazz, a small bar/venue. It was a rainy, chilly Madrid night and not many people came out. Still we had a lot of fun, enjoyed playing our set and watching Armenian play theirs.
