If your in California today, the chances of you being unequivocally amazed by the presence of rain, are pretty high. Once again nature has decided to grace our state with some showers. Now I think this is great for one, because realizing that this is possibly the worst our winter weather will get reassures my happiness living in California however brings slight guilt as I get comfortable in my cozy warm Snuggy while I watch the rest of the nation struggle to defrost themselves on television. But, I love the rain.
Because I have so much time for myself when it rains, I tend to have a lot of productive days, well usually. I usually make a really awesome playlist full of what I deem as “Perfect Rain Music”, which usually consist of mellow to upbeat artists that usually put me in a nostalgic trance of some sort… Then I cook. And do I cook. I cook like a mad man, I feel like some of the best dishes I’ve ever made have been cooked in the rain… Well not literally in the rain, I mean could you imagine the taste of soggy pan fried crab cakes in a garlic aioli sauce laid next to bed of fresh arugula salad mixed around a perfectly cooked poached egg, so wrong I know. I usually follow the cooking up by jamming out on my guitars and piano trying come up with super un-mainstream indie songs, which I often tend to title with exceedingly nonchalant song names like “Fish Talk” or something like that. Then after that I usually get all angst and feel the need to get out, which usually ends in me running around in the rain.
Lets make this clear. I did none of that today.
I slept like a fat kid who just ate a giant piece of cake too big for his stomach, in which he instantaneously fell into a food coma. I did put on some sweet music through out the day though.
But, tomorrow I plan on doing all those things I mentioned. Now what I am super eager to do is to convince my friends to come outside and run around with me sparsely clothed with colorful Native American bathtub crayon markings all over ourselves doing rain dances of the Cree. Yeah, Cree was the first tribe I could think of, probably because I just watched Legends of the Fall like a few hours ago.
Check out Boy & Bear’s music video to Rabbit Song, I really dig the Native American theme.
