Oh Lord it's SEPTEMBER?!?! My goodness. Well... this will be a quick post. Not a lot new at the moment as I've been wiped out with a flu-like illness over the last week. I've been coughing tons and don't have much of a voice at the moment... so that's why I'm here typing!
Spent the last hour doing some general track mixing and slight embellishments for bass drum. Nothing too exciting. These songs are just waiting for a vocal and background vocals- but there never seems to be enough time. I have been pretty frustrated lately because I just don't know how to move forward. I feel like a caged animal creatively. I have so much in my brain 24/7 that's playing- songs on top of songs on top of songs... sometimes 10 playing simultaneously... whilst my brain hears them and walks the fine line between loving them and thinking they are completely irrelevant. I have to say when I hear the awful "First" song by The Cold War Kids I instantly believe in myself. If that awful, remedial song and lousy production can get play 475 times on the LA top 40 station then I have a chance. So... even on the listless days... I can say I really believe in the songs. I just gotta find a way to plug the world into what I hear in my head and that's wasting away inside me.
But it's a new month! Some new weather... a road trip coming up that I'm really looking forward to. Jury duty coming up for the first time in my life. A big trip home. Sports driving me crazy (Mets) and my backup plan (NY Jets football!!!) starting soon. It's going to be a great month and I can't wait for it. I'll hit you guys with a monthly update hopefully tomorrow. Peace out.
