Clearing the Books

I have this blog.txt file always sitting around on my computer, where I write down things I intend to mention here. It grows and grows and I never seem to get around to making with the words. So, here’s all of the stuff…

  • There is a new record in the works. Nearly fully written (I’m shy lyrics for 3 songs), I’m hoping to have it out in the early part of 2016. I have elaborate plans surrounding it, lots of moving parts, and I don’t know if I can pull it off. But we’ll see how it goes. Either way, there will be a record. I can’t make a decision regarding how much to share about the process and the plans… is it better to put it out in the world without looking behind the curtains or is that fun? I have no idea.
  • There is a second side project I am working on with what should end up being a lot of people. If anything, it is even less sensible than the first. Same curiosity on my part about oversharing it before its anywhere close to done.
  • I am also fast getting to the point where the talking and thinking about these projects are just new methods of not DOING them. It’s about having to trick yourself, but every trick eventually gets figured out and skirted and you have to find another. My brain is like a corporation dumping cancer into a river.
  • People, if you want to feel energized about being creative and about doing whatever the hell idea you want to do and screw everyone else… watch the film Jodorowsky’s Dune. I can’t tell you this strongly enough.
