glass cage of emotion

glass cage of emotion

On Thursday December 22nd I left work early (by half an hour) because I was starting to feel sick. I believe I mentioned the fact that I thought I might be getting sick in an earlier post. Amy came over. We ate dinner and went to bed very early because we’d be getting up at 5am. I woke up sick. Sick. Aaron picked us up and took us to the airport. Our two flights that day were not unpleasant in…

sick again

In other news: I’m getting sick again just in time for christmas. The last two weeks have been super stressful at work. Couple that with a concert that went on until midnight on Monday and you’ve got a battered immune system.

Dubya in 2000 after taking office in a message to the EPA: C’mon boys, lets ease up on those industrial dumping restrictions, a little mercury ain’t gon’ hurt nobody. Sides’, I’m takin’ a pay cut to work for Dick (Cheney) anyway – I need my factory stocks to go up so’s I can afford to buy Laura sumthin’ nice for christmas this year.

For the past four weeks I’ve worked on a monstrous project. I decided I wanted to digitize the old Pusher and EM recordings. These only exist on cassette tape. I pulled out my box o’ tapes and started going through them several weeks ago. I found 54 tapes. From that I gleaned over five hours of actual content from over seventy hours of tape (some were 60 minutes and some 90). The process was fairly laborious as I had the…

On Saturday Amy and I went to Denny’s for a free brunch with coupons she’d obtained from her brother. From there we headed up into Angeles National Forest on one of the most dangerous roads in America – Angeles Crest Highway. It was overcast and we didn’t really know what we were doing. I had printed out directions to hiking trails from the Angeles Forest website, but the information was outdated and many trails were closed. California has the first…

Dolly Trauma and USPS trauma

I forgot to mention the other day that the new Dolly Trauma cd “The Loyal Oak” came out last weekend. Jeff (guitar player and studio genius) is sending me a copy in the mail. I’ll have a review when I get it. Jeff has actually been very helpful in the whole “me getting back into recording stuff” project with advice. Byron is getting his ducks in a line (or is that chickens?), and putting up a business website. It isn’t…

I haven’t posted in a long time I suppose. I went to Black Angus with Amy and her family on Thanksgiving. I was glad to get a meal with other people on that day, but none of us were particularly impressed with the restaurant, it was my first time. I did get my music recording situation underway. I bought a Creative E-MU 0404 sound card. I’m putting all live instruments into the MD8 and using it as a pre-amp. I…
