A Monumental Purchase

I just received an order from Musician's Friend last night. I now am the proud owner of a cheap mixer, a condenser microphone, and a pop filter. I am excited to start on some projects next week. One of these highly anticipated projects is a musical concept introduced to me by Davy. It's called Album-A-Day, or AAD for short. http://crapart.spacebar.org/aad/ The basic idea is to create a full length album within a 24 hour window. The project has to be completely original, and unplanned. The vast majority of the submitted albums are total crap. They remind me of Ross playing the synthesizer on Friends. Yes, I watch Friends, kill yourselves. Anyway, the concept is tailor-made for people like me and Davy that dream big, but are quickly sidetracked. Anyway, When I'm ready to start up, I will get a one word suggestion from Davy, and I will base a full length album on it, to be completed within roughly 24 hours. I will keep you all up to speed. It will probably turn out to be a mess, but that's half the fun.

I only hope that I can clean my room and keep it clean long enough to make a rocking song this summer. Album a day is a good (though flawed) idea. we'll see what happens...

Ha ha, you watch friends...

And x-files....

Anyway, hope all is going well in the land of kanab and I am excited to see you this weekend, even if it's only for a second. You better take good care of my husband whilst you are in Vegas or you will have a very angry pregnant woman to answer too. Am I kidding? I don't know...

I sent you a text last night... I hope you received it and laughed heartily.
