Canada Narrowly Avoids Being Rocked
Apparently the “computing machines” in Oklahoma that are responsible for making flight plans and distributing them to, erm, I guess flights, had a little trouble today. As a result, my 12:30 flight to Toronto was stuck for a couple hours on the runway and then cancelled altogether. They sent out all the luggage except for my guitar, which they kept hanging around somewhere secret for another couple hours while several luggage helper people attempted to locate it and I wept quietly into my inflatable travel pillow. When it was found, I hopped a cab to La Guardia for a 5:30 flight, which I have just learned is delayed as well (and may eventually be cancelled for all I know).
Long story short, there will be no 9 PM JoCo show at The Reverb tonight in Toronto. I am hopeful that I’ll get there in time for tomorrow afternoon’s interview with me as DIY/Artist 2.0 Poster Boy. I’m sorry if you’ve bought tickets or changed plans or anything to make tonight’s show. And to think I was worried that I had waited too long to publicize my appearance – if I had waited just a little longer, that would have been a smart decision instead of just bad planning.
In a related story, the Ms. Pacman machine (why are NY airports filled with Ms. Pacman machines?) I played had a hinky joystick that only went up SOME of the time, so I didn’t even make it through the apple screen.
I’m going to have a drink now.
