END OF A WEEK
When any task is done it becomes pretty apparent that you never accomplish as much as you thought you would. The thought is always in the back of your mind, but it never really solidifies until you run out of time, or the project actually reaches its end. We had some big goals for recording this week and of course, we didn't get done all that we wanted but, so it goes, huh? Today is the last day of recording for a little while. Got about 6 drum tracks done, and some of the guitar and bass as well. There's a lot more to do but thats a swell start if you ask me. There are usually unexpected things that halt your process (which we encountered) but you can't really complain when we're blowing the building and neighbors out with take after take after take. What I'm saying is, thanks to neighbors for putting up with ringing ears. We're already trying to decide when and where to put aside some more time to finish up. The idea is still to do vinyl. We're now working out ideas for hand made packaging and album art. Hopefully we can get recording and mastering done and try to release it by the end of the summer. IN OTHER EXCITING NEWS: This week we sat and talked with some friends about a gallery/studio space in the works. The ROTA Gallery seems to have endless possibilities and hopefully it all works out. Not just a space to show work, but a space for some studio equipment (dark room, wood shop, printing facilities, etc.) , and a spot for music, movies, workshops, classes, potlucks, and basically any other idea you have. Its located on 19 CLinton Street, Plattsburgh, NY. Thanks to Tavish Costello who rents the place and is trying to get this all started. We went down yesterday and started cleaning the basement out. There's a lot of great things that could happen here, get excited, because... its exciting. Give some help too, whatever you can do, it will be worth it. Check out the page for it at the link to the right under ROTA. It's really cold, stay warm. CHEERS!
