I'm not dead yet!

Well I said from the beginning that I probably wouldn't be good at keeping this thing up. There have been way too many things going on in my life lately. When I do have the time to update this blog lately I find myself just vegging out in front of the television.
Work is getting better since Sean came back. I actually feel as though we are making headway. We still however are being dragged into a lot of weekend work that sucks time away. Couple my hectic schedule with the change in seasons which always puts me in a dark mood and you have "Insta-Grump" (sorry 'bout that Nik), a character that most of you who know me are familiar with.
The band thing has been coming along nicely. We were supposed to have a gig a week or so back at a wedding but then said wedding got cancelled. I was a little disappointed but hey we only missed out on a show. Once I got my perspectives straight on that I realized that we will have many other opportunities. We are working very hard at the moment to put together a demo CD and a press kit to distribute to local clubs. It has been a lot of work and it won't be letting up any time soon. We recorded 5 rough tracks yesterday and Nik put us through the paces in a 200+ photo photo shoot. Now we have to sift through the results of the shoot and choose the best pics for our kit. We also are going to start recording individual tracks beginning tomorrow evening. I have to finish setting up my "studio" in the basement and test the systems. After that I have a band mate coming over every night until Thursday to lay down tracks. I am really looking forward to this experience but at the same time am looking forward to a little me time as well.
Time to get back to work on the studio. Hope everyone is well. Until next time please enjoy this standard "We are a tough yet sensitive band photo". Ooooooh Markov Chain is scary. LOL
