not keeping up

i am spending far too much time on twitter these days.. so much so, that i am neglecting to ever post here. it's not that i have nothing to say, because i do. a lot has happened since i left seattle. i've been traveling with my trusty companion jamie, who has been riding shotgun the entire tour. since my name is listed as the only driver on my car rental agreement, i am doing all the driving. by the time i get home, i can say that i drove an entire tour across america and canada.. (triumphant music here). we saw denver through 10 degree temps, battled snow, out ran the cops, (not really), discovered orbs who come from the fourth dimension, had cupcakes brought to us by some very nice people, visited my friend jim in chicago, who has the worlds most meanest cat, took a ton of pictures on my phone, visited our good friends at secretly canadian, saw the studio i will be recording my next record in, cried, laughed, shook hands with angels, came to the conclusion, that i really don't care for canada, even though i love the people who come out to the shows, discovering our car has xm radio, listening to the spa channel, missing my wife and son more than i ever have before, stuck my foot in my mouth, trying.. and doing my best, getting to see calvin and shane, who drove all the way from ohio, video chats with sarah and miles, getting zero amounts of sleep, experiencing a high tolerance for everything, contemplating a whole foods and comfort inn tour support plan, eating when i can.. or not at all, talking more in between songs, trying new and old songs out for the first time.. there you have it. i'm sure i have left a lot out. there is still three more weeks of this tour left. ...a lot can happen between now and getting back home.

O' I am grateful for Twitter! & grateful you do write on it. It feels great to keep up with you & your tour. Cities, places, pictures... Speaking of which - today you are especially productive with pics :) Thanks!

i saw the brooklyn show on friday. immensely moving. felt like i wrote the set list myself - everything i wanted to hear. and interested to see that you wrote about talking more between songs, because i was pleasantly shocked at your loquaciousness. oh - and i stole a record title for my photography website: www.rehearsalsfordeparture.com.

I caught both shows in Philly. They rocked Damien. Thanks for breaking out some old songs. You gotta come back here and play the chapel again!

Dude, I'm trying to make the Memphis show, don't know if I can, but I hope that one day I'll be able to shake hands with my favorite musician ever!

Be safe out there, especially in Memphis, they likes da meth!

the bottom of the hill show can't come soon enough. PLEASE play "fuel," that is all i ask. i will give you a total hi five.

Josh said...

Hey man, the new songs you put up on your myspace are awesome. Hope the rest of the tour goes well.

Campbell said...

fantastic show in sf last night. anyone know the title of the song about the green river killer?

dylan said...

thanks for coming to canada, we appreciate it!

A.M. Hatch said...

thank you for playing 'the killer' at the doug fir. were you talking about the rouses point border crossing, near vermont? if so, i definitely agree with you about the odd surroundings.

I hope you enjoyed the cupcakes. Megin is a tremendous baker, I'm just a lousy driver and I don't know how well they survived the drive. I'm glad you got home in time for the birthday. Take care, Rebecca

If you find yourself in San Francisco and feel like stopping by the Twitter office to shmooz (is that a word?) and maybe play a few songs, let me know! I'm sure we'd love to have you!
