To live is the rarest thing in the world.

HOUSTON (KTRK) — If you have driven down Westheimer in Montrose recently, you may have seen a new mural being created on the side of Numbers Night Club. It is being painted by local artist Rene Fernandez.

The mural includes several famous 80’s and 90’s alternative music artists faces or their band logos. Right now Fernandez has so far completed, from left to right on the wall, the Bauhaus logo, Peter Murphy, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Al Jourgensen of Ministry, Deborah Harry, Joey Ramone of the Ramones, David Bowie, Depeche Mode’s logo, Ian Curtis of Joy Division, Morrissey, Siouxsie of Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Robert Smith of The Cure.

Fernandez says he was inspired by his own memories of bands that have played at Numbers. The artists adds that the walls of the club are a giant blank canvas in need of some love. Fernandez said he chose the artists he because he feels they laid the groundwork to influence so many artists today and they are important to the history of Numbers.

The owner of Numbers also says this mural is one of several improvements the club will be undergoing inside and out.

Ahh Bauhaus, Joey Ramone, David Bowie, Ian Curtis, Morrissey, Siouxsie and Robert Smith. Okay there is Trent Reznor too.

Tonight, Russian Circles created a wall of graceful sound in a thought-provoking atmosphere with their emotional riffs, intense drum hits and whirlwind of mood shifts.

Just when they’ve driven things to a thunderous climax, it quietly simmers down. The unpretentious songwriting is comfortably perfect.

They’ve set a new standard for post-metal.

Flying Solo is Good for the Soul

1) Make a list of all the things we want to do and move through them one by one without ever having to stop and ask another person if they are okay with doing it.

2) Experience the exquisite company that is taking a good book to a dinner out by ourselves, getting so lost in the precious solitude that we begin to forget the world exists at all.

3) Move to wherever we want and start completely fresh, giving ourselves the ultimate challenge of learning how to develop and create a new safety net.

4) From sleeping through the night, to feeling good about ourselves, to trying new activities and meeting new people.

5) Dedicate nearly all our social time to developing and enriching the friendships which sometimes fall by the wayside when we are consumed with a relationship.

6) Throw ourselves fully into our work and enjoying it, without having to worry about it coming at the cost of the relationship.

7) Get to spend extended periods of time wandering around, reading, people-watching, drinking tea, and just being.

8) Everyday we live holds the potential of starting an entirely new chapter in our lives.

9) Have more cash in the pocket. Let’s be honest - relationships are expensive.

10) We don’t have to feel guilty about being the most important thing in our lives.

The beauty of being in our 20s is the license to screw up and be reckless.

In our 30s, we start to understand that everything in life is a trade-off and we can’t have it all. 

The good news is, we’ll always retain some of that youthfulness even in our 40s. ‘Coz it continues to be true that nobody knows what they’re doing.

And above all, respect and be kind to ourselves. Life’s such a brilliant and beautiful ride, and just keeps getting better.
