    It is 02:20 in the morning european time right now.
    I just came home from a very lovely club gig with my "Evil Elvizz"project. Sold out a 200+ club.
    After 3 months of abstinence from guitar because of illness I really fevered towards this gig.

    We really had an overwhelming response from the audience (and great mom and pop catering). Wages were o.k., too.

    Now I am at home. My family is sleeping already and I try to calm down.
    Since all the lovely girls that used to go to our concerts in the 80ies are grandmas now I really had to find some kind of therapy to find peace after the gig.

    I found out -more than several times- that this is a very nice way -and novel way- to calm me down and find inner peace after a riot-gig like this one:

    Bob Ross "The joy of painting".

    Haha. :) So relaxing.

    It really helps me to find sleep.
    How are you guys finding comfort after a great and fulfilling gig?
  2. Usually a very long drive home after a gig (2.5 hours) is enough to get me relaxed and ready for sleep

    A bit of Bob Ross is good for the soul. What's weird is that he was a USAF Msgt. Drill instructor. He started learning painting while stationed in Alaska to calm himself down. What a gentle soul!

    A guy meets a gal at a bar, and after a few drinks he asks her, “Do you smoke after sex?” “Gee, I don’t know,” she says. "I’ve never looked.”

    (I hope that joke doesn’t fall under the probition on sex here.)

    The Canadian Netflix has two compilations of his, a random mix and a winter themed one. I frequently use those to fall asleep when it isn't coming easily.

    And yes, it's hard to imagine him screaming at the troops. Also, he hates that afro but the marketing people had him keep it for his image.

    I find this cooking show to be extremely relaxing...the simplicity, the prep and rinsing of the ingredients, the scenery, the fire....all of it

    The BBC used to have a late night radio programme called Today in Parliament. Listening to that lot would send anyone off to sleep in about ten minutes. Ditto another BBC gem, The Financial World Tonight.
