Why yes, yes it has been more than a year since I've posted anything...how selfish of me to frequently check in on friends near and far while maintaining complete silence from my end.
Attempting to sum up the past year would be ridiculous...let's focus on the now, plus a bit of the future. Right at this moment, I'm at my new job as a QA tech at a software company - been doing it since 4 days after I graduated from PCC at the end of June. So...yeah I work full-time, 9-5ish. My last full-time job was during the summer of 1995. I'm not doing the best job of making a new routine - I keep telling myself it'll happen naturally, but it's been about 6 months and I still live in the reality I was afraid of - go to work, come home, eat dinner, hang out in a leisurely manner, repeat M-F, and the weekend vanishes in a blur of being psyched that I don't have to go to work. Project ideas, to-do list items, and of course electronic-pieces-of-shit-to-be-fixed continue to pile up just like they did when I was in school, except now my excuse for not getting to them is just miserably mundane. Ummm...hey at least I've got plenty of fodder for New Year's Resolutions....?
I'm looking forward to going south for the holidays and having nothing to do except cook and eat. Tonight and all through the weekend I'll be mixing The All Girl Summer Fun Band, don't ask me why I decided to book a recording session right before leaving town for the holidays. I mean obviously I'm super psyched to do the project, it's going to be rad and I love the band. But why didn't I just say that the weekend before Xmas wasn't available!? (OK I'll tell you - I need money bad.)
I also need some more coffee.
Other news...Mer and I have new housemates who just moved in this month and so far it's working out really really well, they are both mellow dudes with sunny dispositions. The studio bought a new computer so I got to take my computer home, and it's pretty awesome to have a nice computer in my basement, I can work on groadies recordings (rough mixes of new songs here). I've been listening to a lot of Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Yes.
And finally - FUCKIN' ROCK BAND
