Happy Birthday Angel

February 27th, 2009 |

Angel got even older today. What a shame. As soon as she starts looking as old as she is she’s off to the curb. But until then, her secret is safe with me.

I just love her pretty smile. You had me at Daarrrrr.

Happy Birthday Honey. I love you. Fur rills.

Angel Kills Again

February 23rd, 2009 |

I ordered a new computer for Angel today. Angel has developed a reputation as quite the PC serial killer around these parts, although I think her death toll and my death toll are probably comparable truth be told.

The new computer is out of necessity but I told her I’d get her a new monitor for her birthday, which is this Friday. I’ve got a 21.5″ wide screen flat-panel picked out for her and she’s rubbing it in my face that she’ll finally, after all these years, have a piece of electronic equipment that’s nicer than mine. My monitor is an old 19″ CRT that I’ve had for years and years. I’m a little miffed about that.

I showed up on Jacob Detering’s blog the other day. Check it out if you’re into that sort of thing.

Sax News

February 22nd, 2009 |

Man I really need to stop neglecting the site.

The official start date has been set for the album. We will begin tracking the drums on March 14th. I’m wetting my pants in anticipation.

I took my sax to the shop a couple of days ago and it turns out that the needed repairs are much less severe than I first thought. So that means I’m only going to have to spend about 20% of the original amount I had planned to spend.

When I took the horn into the shop the repair man opened up the case, looked at the serial number on the horn, looked me in the eye and asked “Do you have any idea how much this horn is worth?” I did actually. Well, I had a ballpark guess and it turns out my guess was low, a few grand low. If I could find a buyer for the horn I would have enough money to buy myself a brand new, very high-end horn and then have enough money left over to get myself completely out of debt except for the house. That’s the truth. Any takers?

Album Update

February 5th, 2009 |

Here’s another vlog giving some updates about what’s going on with the album. I apologize that this video player insists that the entire video must load before it starts to play. Please be patient.

Here is a link to Jacob Detering’s website. I talk about Jacob in the video if you’re wondering why I’m posting the link. He’s the producer for my album.

I highly recommend listening to some of the tunes on his site.
