Good morning! It's straight-up nine o'clock on this halfway sunny Monday. I just saw a meme on Facebook from my old supervisor at the State."What do you call a person who's happy on Monday? Retired." She was supposed to go about the same time as me, but hung in there for a few more years. Glad she was finally able to bail.
Music news. Still working on my new website, getting things in order. I've got a bunch of pictures up, and am adding music as well. It's still samcrain.com(I kept my 'domain'), just under new management. Naturally, I encourage whoever is reading this to stop in and check out my new 'place'. Like they say in front of the strip clubs in Baltimore,"don't cost nothin' to check it out".
Been working away in my makeshift home studio this past week, and have a new composition. It's a Suite of nine short pieces. Not sure whether to make this as an album in itself or part of another album. Decisions, decisions. But the stuff works, and therefore needs to be shared.
Yesterday I took a break from recording, and dusted off the guitar. It'd been a couple days, so there was just a little rust. I'll have some new jams for YouTube sooner or later.Tough keeping everything together. Something always has to take a back seat.
And on top of all this, I'm still trying to maintain an exercise regimen. This also took a back seat this past week, so yesterday I got back on track. I've got a nice compact workout with 3 different leg exercises, several sets of pushups, dips(for triceps)and finally a couple sets of leg-lifts. Takes about half an hour. I'm pretty whipped afterwards, so I know it's doing its stuff..
Two bandjobs later this month, on the 20th and 21st. I'll be at Pease's Gourmet on the 20th with the Samba Llamas; and at Robbie's on the 21st with Dan Rivero and Co. This stuff is now on the Shows link on my new website.
And that's the major headlines for now. I'm not a football fan- college basketball is much more my style-, so I missed Superbowl Sunday- but am glad that the great state of Kansas was so well-represented..
Thanks as ever for stopping in and reading. Happy Monday to you! I'm outa here. More later.
