Past and Present

Boxing Day is my Independence Day.  On this day in 2004 (same day as the Asian Tsunami, coincidentally) that I left my abusive boyfriend for the final  time.

Since then, I've felt the past chase me similarly to how  the horse is chasing the dog in this picture.  These two are just playing, but you get the idea.

I know that after so many years, my ex is not going to come after me (that would take valuable time away from drinking) but I still feel as if I have to keep a watch out for him wherever I go. 

Anyway, back to my usual Peter Gabriel-flavored blog posts next year.  In the meantime, you can check out my new Vincent Van Gogh blog, Why Van Gogh Matters.  Thanks and have a stress-free New Year.

Denmark Date Back To Front 2013 Tour

Danish Peter Gabriel fans have probably already bought their tickets for 28 September, but just in case you haven't, here's the link to Ticketmaster Danmark.  There may be more dates available in the New Year, but who knows? 

And did you know that Denmark has an official website?  How cool is that?  Even America doesn't have it's own website.  Sure, there's an official site for the American government but that's not the same thing.  No wonder Americans don't know what's going on most of the time -- we don't have one definitive official website for US.  Wouldn't that be great?  Can't you just imagine it?

American: Hey, what's going on?

Another American: I dunno.  Let's check the website.  (Checks.)  Ahh, here we go!

Anyway, now that Peter is taking a year off to travel the world, I thought I'd start another blog.  (No, I don't know how I made that connection, but never mind.)  Why Van Gogh Matters is a Vincent Van Gogh fan and reference blog.  The blog isn't exactly ready for prime time yet, but hopefully it'll get rolling along smoothly soon.

More Dates to Back to Front 2013 Dates

There are now so many dates for Peter Gabriel's 2013 Back to Front tour that I can't keep up.  Remember, the latest dates are usually announced first on Peter's official Facebook Page before his official website.  Anyway, here are the latest dates (at least, the latest that I know of):

EDIT:  I had to delete a few posts from 2006 because of problems with the new template and my free photo limit at Blogger.

I tried to update this blog's template and it hasn't gone so well, as you can see.  I've somehow lost most of my sidebars.  Story of my life.

In other news, I'm going to Leipzig again next October for a Peter Gabriel concert.  I'm getting so tired of this freakin' house that if I know there's a vacation from it in the near future, my head will refrain from exploding.  My Mom asked me if PG was going to do a different show for the European Back to Front tour than he did this autumn in North America.  I looked her right in the eyes without blinking and said, "Yes."

PG will be playing Vienna as well as the UK and Germany in October 2013.  If I had known he would do Vienna, I would've went to Vienna instead of Germany.  No offence, Germany.  I've just never been to Vienna, home of the Spanish Riding School and the incredibly beautiful Lipizzaner stallions (pictured.)

Not that I will have any energy left over from the 12 hour trip, the soundcheck and the concert, and thinking up a lie to tell Mom about PG's show when I get back.  Silly me to think of looking at anything else other than Peter, I know. 

Meanwhile, Peter is goofing off with his family until about September of next year.  No news as to whether any Lipizzaner stallions will be involved.
