So what the hell has been going on?
Christmas and Channukah was great this year. Emily and myself decided to make our gifts this year. We canned a few types of jelly & apple sauce, made magnets, felted pillows, made sachets for wool sweaters, did that bath salt thing, and made Xmas ornaments (yes, i soldered them). And we put it all in a wonderful wood box completely painted by us. I was so impressed with ourselves in the end. It only took 3 months to make 5 boxes. Anyways… So yeah. And New Years was normal. I am getting more and more done with New Years every year. What’s the big deal. We spent it this year with some work people at the studios. They broadcasted all night. Fun times.
So in other news, I am working with a few guys in some new bands. One is just me and this guy David who does electronics stuff. Motherfucker modifies computrons and casios. So it’s him on the Juno and some casios. Me on the SK1/5, my Juno and a ring modulated Roland beat box. And it’s all soundscapes and drones with small beats in the background. The other band is more cohesive and linear and Gordon plays in that one as well as David. And I am on drums and synth. It’s coming together. And we might possibly record soon. That is what I am looking forward to. And some shows will be fun.
And since I’ve been working non-stop on my studio, I invited my old friend from Boston to come record a few tracks with me. He’s coming in late January. It’s great having my studio grow. It’s the one place I am truly comfortable in, all the time. And having Gordon help with it is a godsend. The dude knows so much about MIDI and DAW is makes me sick. Oh, and this Saturday Zander is coming down to start pre-production on his almost done EP. In fact the kiddo has well over a full albums worth of material, but he’s thinking more along the lines of an EP. Which is totally cool. Happy Birthday, Zander.
And finally, I turn 27 a week from yesterday. Late 20s. Quite weird.
And some good stuff is coming our way. Like amazingly good. At least amazing for Emily and myself. But I can not really say much more as I do not want to jinx anything. But it’s quite wonderful. Karma is a good thing! More on that as it propagates.
