...and then you hit "delete" and do it again. For the last few weeks, my band has been working on our new demo. Not that there's anything wrong with the old one, we just like to torture ourselves. And I do mean torture! Nothing like examining all your little screwups under a microscope. After listening in abject embarrassment, I swore I would never sing in public again. Preston promised me, though, I don't really sound like that. It was, after all, just a reference track, and I wasn't really putting my best voice forward. At least we're doing it in the comfort of Kevin's basement this time, which is far better than in our usual space where it's bloody cold.
The first part of the process has to be the recording of the drum tracks, which means Preston has been very busy with playing and Joe has been very busy recording and dealing with computer SNAFUs.And I have been supervising, offering unsolicited opinions, and crocheting. Kevin is in the other room on Facebook. Soon, though, it will be my turn on the rack; bass tracks are next.
Preston informs me that we are setting the clocks ahead next week. I'm one of those people for whom daylight savings time represents a major upheaval. It takes me days to adjust, so I know THAT's coming, but even still I can't wait. I look forward to coming home with enough daylight left to take Myah for a walk. Both of us need to shed our winter fat and neither of us can get it together in the morning so the walks have been few and far between.
Funny thing about my new year's resolution (and I said I wouldn't go here again, but...well, I lie). Since I vowed to get off my own back about not starting new projects before I finish the old ones, I have not only started AND COMPLETED many new projects, I have finished all but a few of the old ones! Seems stress just causes you to spin your wheels, and self-inflicted stress even more so. So since I have decided to re-open the gift shop at Incredible Threads, I've got lots of stuff to fill it with. Now I just have to get the shoppers in! So now to go brainstorm some free publicity. Hmmm.....
