It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Nice and sunny, and quiet- except for the kids playing in the Day Care across the alley from me. I enjoy hearing them playing, and sometimes regret that they probably have to hear me too, at least to some extent.
My noise is much more obnoxious than theirs, at least my non-musical noise: playing video games and cussing when I miss a shot. Something like ding-ding-ding-fuck. Many of the Lumosity games are set up with a 4-part set of patterns, with the appropriate dings when you get them right. Only instead of ding-ding-ding-ding, it often ends up as ding-ding-ding-fuck. Or even ding-ding-fuck..
Music news. With the smoke starting to clear from this year's assorted adventures,(see previous blog: What a Year I'm Having) I'm starting to get back on track as far as what I was doing musically. The Covid Years- 2020, 21 and 22- saw a ton of home projects from me, something that seemed to run its course. Going into 2023, I had just one more of those projects to finish up.
So that's where I'm finding myself here in mid-May of 2023. Right where I left off. Finishing up a CD. This will make CD #50, at least as far as what I've got up on CD Baby.
From here, I've got a whole solo guitar project I've been meaning to do for years. Something I was finally gonna do as 2023 rolled in. Even got another person to work with on this one. Sometimes life gets in the way of music, especially as you get older. And you have to tend to it for awhile before you can get back.
I've done two gigs of my own this year, and hope to do more as we go into 2023. Not looking for sideman stuff, except for the one band I always bail out. Ocean State, of which I was a member for about two and a half years in there. I don't have regular personnel, as far as that goes, but I do have people I can call.
Anyway, that's the basic mostly musical news for the moment. This goes up on my website first(and really, foremost)but I'm wondering if Facebook will have a problem with my use of the f word. We shall see. As ever, thanks for stopping in and reading. Happy Thursday to you! Ich bin outa here. Later.
PS today's tune is a tune of mine called Hanging On. It's one of the songs on this CD I'm finishing up.
