The Band had another session last night.

Re: our singer, on his recording technique -- "I just copied it from 33 1/3."

=O <-- This was me, impressed.

For being an engineering geek who's never been in a band or pursued music professionally, he had a lot of studio gear. That's passion.


It still feels like we're dating. We met last June and have spoken endlessly about these new works. We really don't know too much about each other except our work life and what we want to do with this new music. We've never talked about our own histories.

I understand it now when outfits don't seem all super social with each other. Maybe not being emotionally dependent on your band members is a good thing. When you're not that worried about hurting each other's feelings, you can tell each other that ideas suck, and know that it's all in the best interest of the end goal.


The problem with creating art that doesn't necessarily fit in with any trend or clique or movement is that you have nothing to reference to in terms of wondering whether you're going the right direction. Does it sound good? Will people like it? Why would they? Why wouldn't they? Will the outcome be EXACTLY what I had in mind last April? It hasn't changed, so why wouldn't the outcome be EXACTLY like it was last April?


This is a great TED talk (THOOO INTHPIRING) about why you should never tell anyone about your goals and ambitions.



There'd a TED channel on Roku!
