Having a coffee and starting a new book this morning, and I was struck by how uncommonly quiet and nice my apartment was. Our radiator makes a nice little knocking sound that for some some reason doesn’t annoy me, kind of makes me sleepy instead. This is what I can see and hear riiiiiiiiight now -
The boys from forward music were in town this week, and saw them play a couple shows. They have touring down to a science. They travel with 5 people, and depending on the venue and the type of night, they become one of three bands each with a different sound and set of music. It’s pretty incredible. Andrew and Kyle came over and did an interview with me for a video blog they’re putting up soon that’ll be a sort of footnote to a music distribution program they’re setting ( more on that later). I’d never been interviewed for a) that long b) on camera c) had questions that were that interesting/exposing.Â The question I kept asking myself throughout was ” do I sound like a pretentious dick?” Maybe I should ask that more often, maybe a couple times a day…especially after a few drinks. Anyway, really interesting stuff, and I’m excited to see the whole slew of them with all sorts of different song writers.
The point of this rant is that talking about music making with those guys and the things I love about it really made me aware of how little I’ve been out there getting sounds. I’ve been lazy, my little H4 is cold and lonely and afraid. I need to fix this, there’s a lot of people saying strange things and animals making weird masticating type noises that need to be at least posted here, or hopefully end up in a piece. So from now on I’ll be a good little blogger and bring you something more interesting then me questioning my own pretentiousness. Ok? Come back soon, like tomorrow.
