we are who we were when...
So it's been a little while huh?
things (you) have been getting desperate around here...not me though, i keep both eyes on the prize.
It's late here and i'm tired so this'll probably be short. The Christmas slow-down has kinda started - not because we want it to, we have more to do in the next three weeks than we normally do! it's just what happens around this time of year...time gets sucked up into some sort vacuum and you have to go with it - if you fight it too hard you end up more stressed out than ever. a deep breath and count to ten.
A pretty casual friday - really made a break from phoning up schools and speaking to receptionists who range from super-friendly-brighten-up-your-day people, to people who seem offended that you've dared to phone them. Don't get me wrong, i'm not complaining about the work for booking the tours - but there are definitely good days and bad days. We spoke to some bands recently who were asking about the schools tours... I think they thought it was a doddle and maybe they should try it out. After setting up the studio, it will probably be the biggest thing we've done. deep breath, count to ten.
me and dan were chatting idly today. what the hell does it look like from the outside? i swear to god we are the most boring people on earth. me and dan spent like an hour and a half designing our new bio and fact sheet today - something that most of you will never see. we then wrote a song that you will never hear (it got scrapped once we jammed it out when kev showed up). worked on some album ideas that will never get made (we kinda know the concept we're chasing now, just need some concrete ideas...more nights in the tiles around tables chatting about it with friends). i love it, but i bet it's way more exciting from the outside - i think most things are.
so if I don't get a chance to post back here before xmas, I hope you have a good time. we are sorry we didn't get a chance to play a home-town show over christmas time as a lot of our friends will be back in town after being away all year, but we are working hard, we promise. we have some new songs that all three of us kinda know are gonna make it to the album and that makes me really excited to start work on it. we'll also have some older songs out for you soon, they'll probably get mixed when we get back from the january tour.
so much for this being short.
