As I’ve said before, I’m no longer much of a football fan. However, I did watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. It was an entertaining, competitive game. Can’t ask for much more than that. I didn’t watch any of the halftime show; wasn’t the least bit interested. I made my dinner instead. Pizza using nan bread as a crust, spaghetti sauce, three kinds of cheese, and pepperoni.
I made the right decision.
It’s starting to feel like this next collection of songs will never be ready. I initially hoped to release the album on my 50th birthday, which was 8/9/19. Obviously, that didn’t happen. I decided to take my time not work without a deadline, but I kept working - with a few major distractions, as I’ve documented.
Work continued over the weekend. I rerecorded vocals for nearly every song. I’m still going through the process of choosing which takes are the best. Once that’s done, I get to remix and remaster the songs. Again. It was taking my time with that part of the process which led to my decision to redo vocals. I’m not complaining. It was the right decision. But at some point, you have to go with what you have or shelf it and maybe come back to it later. I could literally spend the rest of my life woking on new material and never be 100% happy with it. Does that mean I’m not entirely happy with any song I’ve recorded? Eh. Sort of. I couldn’t tell you about every little nuance that I think needs improvement off the top of my head, but I know there’s always room to make things better. Still, I actually like a lot of my stuff. So I got that going for me.
I won’t make any predictions as to when the new album will be ready. I will say I’ll release it as soon as I can. I’m looking forward to other things I want to do.
Finally, you can see my website has been redesigned, which again, I discussed within these pages. I’m ok with the basic look, but I’m not done. The same friend who designed my new album cover is going to take some pictures of me which I will incorporate into my site and will then likely necessitate a new color scheme, but the basic layout will likely remain as is.
Y’all be good.
