“As a 40-year-old bachelor, a band is probably the right place for you to be right now. AOf course you can be old and serious about your band! Look at Stephen Stills, for example—he is both very old and very serious. That said, you need to do a few things if you are going to next-level this band and at least start playing shows regularly. Have a little sit-down with your drummer—you are going to be merciful and kind to him because if his wife is a resident, this dude is essentially single-dadding it, and I bet you $13.50 that the two band practices a month he gets to are the only times he gets to go out and cut loose (if you don’t count the occasional Friday night Target run with two beers in him). Tell him that you like playing with him, but you want to be serious and practice often and you know that is an impossible demand given his real life. You are going to propose that he give you a call when he is down to jam once a month. Or ask if he’d play on your solo demo recordings/ironic metal album. Think of it as the band practice version of NSA post-breakup sex. Plus, you can spare a night a month to throw back some beers with this dude in the practice space and jam out whatever Pavement songs you can remember.”

“You think all existence lapses in as quiet a flow as that in which your youth has hitherto slid away. Floating on with closed eyes and muffled ears, you neither see the rocks bristling not far off in the bed of the flood, nor hear the breakers boil at their base”
