i met my friend and fellow musician tamar at think coffee the other day so we could have girlchat, and i could give her a copy of my cd. through this whole "break" thing, it's occurred to me that i miss blogging about my everyday encounters- friends, coffee, brunch- and want to start doing it more :)
within the past few months, i've been finding more pals within the "scene" here. see, many musicians in new york are like bees... they form hives. and i guess i've never really been cool enough to be a part of one. so it's special to me whenever i do find someone on my level, excited to converse about the woes and triumphs of living as an artist in nyc!
so we did :)
one thing about tamar, is that she's kind of a magical celebrity magnet. she meets SO many of them, somehow. this is amazing to me... even if ryan gosling himself was walking down the street next to me, i'd be totally oblivious. (unless he said "hey girl." he totally wouldn't, though.)
she's run into paul mccartney multiple times... he even gave her a quote about her music that she uses in her press kit! she drank with vincent kartheiser on a boat to iceland. and most recently hung out with... gulp... johnny depp. in a totally professional capacity, but still... JOHNNY DEPP.
anyway, it's nice to have friends to bitch about things with. and to listen. i had this idea that some of my friends and i would form little "teams" to help each other in our goals. nyc is so full of people so focused on pushing their own agendas, it might be nice to focus on helping someone else for a change. maybe it'll happen someday soon :)
