Saturday 

Good morning! 9:32 and 36 degrees. I've been awake about half an hour. A night full of dreams I don't remember, except for a snippet right before I woke up. I was back at work. Unbeknownst to me, I had a girlfriend. She wanted to spend her break time with me. I obliged. We were heading off arm in arm when I woke up. 

Usually, the ones I remember are weird and disturbing in some way. That one was actually refreshing. Hope I get to see her again...

Music news. With Winter fast approaching, this would be a dynamite time for a new project here in the Lab. I've got a makeshift recording studio going here, with a synthesizer, lots of guitars, a guitar processor(heavy on the Death Metal sounds, but still lots of good stuff), a 5-string bass- plus a 16-track Fostex recorder I got 20 years ago but is still holding up. 

I haven't given up on working with other people by any means. As a musician- and as a person-  I still need  that in my diet.. I'm a pretty good hermit, but I don't want to get too good at it..  

The home studio is pretty addictive, though. Through the synthesizer keyboard, I've got a whole orchestra plus some crazy sounds not found in Nature. A whole bevy of tones in the guitar processor, and a variety of guitars to choose from. I used to joke in working days that if I didn't have to earn a living, I'd never leave the house. Definitely some truth there...

So that's the view from here. My weird-ass vantage point.. I think there was something else I was gonna talk about, but I'm already out of space. Next time, maybe. For now, thanks as ever for stopping in and reading. Happy Saturday to you! This boy's outa here. More later.
