So I mentioned that I live within forty feet of the local bar in my last journal. I have some questions regarding bar etiquette and whether or not I’ve broken it.

So my first offense is that I’m a jukebox fiend. I’m running out of new ideas for songs to play so recently, after a couple of beers, I keep on falling back on an alt country mix. Sometimes people say they like a song or two.

I think that’s pretty normal but financially it’s kind of wasteful.

But the real offense is a lady. A lady who loves attention. So this woman is very flirtatious and lives large. I have now shared a taxi fare to another local bar, played DD and had her and other parishioners over to my apartment, and most recently played the jukebox whilst confessing my inner turmoils to her in an empty bar. I think it’s a mutual WTF interaction.

Oh and one of the guys that works there has a pen readily available.

So I guess I’m saying that I’m diving into this place. These are the things that we find at bars.

But do people think I’m damaging anything other than my bank account?

Do you like this woman?

She’s a little loopy. I think she has a good sense of humor and a drinking problem.

I think I’ve pined.

A little bit of pining.

It’s really not that comfy.

There’s always something going on or someone who’s really drunk. Its more alarming and a stretch for my social skills.

It’s like subjecting myself to random social stimuli to improve my sociability IQ. The bars not set that high, pun intended, but it’s a large amount of variety in a social situations sense.

Please make sure you change your songs.

My local bar (well, there's many local bars but this one is the best one) has a few guys who play the exact same songs every time they come in and the employees and regulars really hate that. One guy, "Gerald" has been playing the same 10 song set list for at least 5 years now. He picked it out by asking the bartender he likes what artists she likes...and now he kind of tortures her by repeating these songs every time he comes in. At least he tips well.

I mix it up but keep it within the same six or seven artists.

I’m on pandora at work. I could make an effort to expand.

If I’m playing alt country I stick to the same string of artists. I have nights where I’ll lean towards indie pop or more 2000s alternative.

I’ve played punk music there when people suggested it. I use it as a conversation starter with just about anyone.

The alt country is the fallback because there’s a lot of mainstream country being played at the bar. I run through my Ryan Adams, Jeff Tweedy, Avett Brothers, Dawes.

Maybe Jason Molina or Conor Oberst’s later stuff.

I really like to drink to God Rest My Soul by Dawes.

Classic rock is always welcome there too.

Maybe play more obscure artists from the Genres that seem popular.

I’ve got Whiskeytown Pandora on at the apartment whilst sipping All Day IPA. Hopefully I find my new favorite song to play at the bar.

Mainstream country can eat sh*t. Pardon myself.

But you have to throw in “it’s not unusual” after 7 songs.

Then.
Back to pussycat

Genuine lol.

I’m like two decades late on Ryan Adams but this song has gotten many plays.

I played both What’s New Pussycat? and It’s Not Unusual on Friday. And took tequila shots. And was really hungover.

I’ll probably stop in for a beer tonight as well. If anyone’s around.

It prohibited me from playing What’s New Pussycat? multiple times in a row and still took the credits when I tried to.
