Retirement

We are officially homeless.

Yesterday we settled on our house in DC. In all reality it went pretty smoothly. The buyer had some issues with putting all her trust in the home inspector, which she had every right to. It just held up some details. All in all, everything went as planned and we are now officially retired.

The reason I say, we’re retired, is that most people end up going through the motions in their 9-5 for decades and live for day they can retire. We thought, “Why wait?” – We wanted to do what we loved when we had the energy to do it. Hence the recording studio. Hence ‘Retirement’.

I just like the sound of it.

So for the next few weeks, we will be vacationing, traveling and checking out studios in Seattle, Portland (& seeing Jamie get hitched – YAY!), San Francisco and Los Angeles. We hope to learn some of the do’s and don’ts from studios that have already done it successfully. Not to mention design ideas.

If anyone lives in those 4 areas, please, my all means, contact us. We’ll love to hook up and get a beer and/or beverage of choice. We’d also love it if you had a connection with a local studio.

Have a great September.

    It’s in LA. My friend Chris (Gene Defcon) puts his records out on this label.

    Can send you info if you want.

  • congratulations on your retirement!! 😀 i’d like to retire with you and hit the road. play music and all that… sigh.

    if you’re going to LA, you should definitely check out the recording studio that elliott smith lovingly put together and that was taken over by friends of his that are keeping his vision alive. it’s called New Monkey. elliott collected and restored a lot of vintage studio gear… i’ve heard it’s a great place, and they more than welcome visitors. i hope to make it there someday.

  • Had to check in on you guys to see how things are going. Obviously, they are going pretty damn good! We are going to miss you being so close to us, but then again we moved first didn’t we 😉

    Enjoy the traveling and learning. Best of luck and keep in touch. Our numbers are the same.

  • Congrats on the retirement! Now it’s time to live in the lap of luxury… or maybe it’s the loins, I can’t remember.

    If you guys ever want to detour to New England, you’re always welcome in hang with a couple new Providencers…!

  • please let me know when you guys will be in LA! a drink must be had!

  • oh, and chris’s best friend is a sound engineer. i could ask about his studio. he’s very knowledgeable in that stuff, too, and would be a good person to hook you guys up with.
