it’s warm here.Â i’m not sure what it’s like at home, but the sun has made my skin a bit pink, the air smells like fresh cut grass, and all the flowers are in bloom.Â i drove home today and noticed all the blossoming trees, the sheep with their faithful shepherds nearby, and all the wonderful old buildings in each town.Â it’s beautiful here.Â i’m starting to understand why everyone who comes to Germany says that it’s the most beautiful place they’ve ever been andÂ today i decided that a bit of paradise will resemble Germany in the spring and summer.Â it’s amazing.
for four days i sat in a small recording studio in the warehouse of a glass house company.Â most of my time was spent sitting on the parking lot and praying that my palms weren’t resting on any shards of glass, sitting on a cushioned chair in the parking lot, laptop on my knee, facing the warehouse so that i could see what it was that i was watching, and sitting in the room where the guy who records the music is (you know, the room with the mixers and all that stuff).Â it was most entertaining to be in there since with the glass that separated the two rooms, i could watch someone stand in the recording room looking like a real idiot as they shook a tambourine for four minutes straight.Â
but then again, i shouldn’t say anything since i spent a bit of time in that recording room singing into a microphone and playing the keyboard while concentrating so intently on the metronome coming through the monitors that i probably looked rather strange myself.
yeah, we just recorded a cd.Â
i was tempted to end the post like that and leave you so impressed with me and what i’m doing over here, but that would be rather like deceit and since i try to stay away from things like that, i’ll be a bit more honest.Â yes, we recorded a cd, but don’t go on thinking that we’re an amazing band.Â lets just put it this way:Â i’ll probably send one home, but once i return home, i think i’d appreciate never having to listen to it again.Â yeah, i’m that good.Â
but it was fun to make.Â you know, i felt kinda cool.Â : )
