It’s way too hot to survive Manila with a full head of hair. (Photo taken and uploaded via MOLOME )
most of the time i’m the dependable one when it comes to a collaborative effort—i love planning things, i love the creative process, and most of all i love being able to share an awesome final product with people who will hopefully enjoy it.
sometimes, though, i get into funks—just sort of a natural ebb to correspond with my musical workflow. i get creatively blocked, or work suddenly needs 200% of me, or i get hit with the flu, or maybe i just get depressed for a month. usually i’m able to plan around this, but sometimes unlucky collaborators get that dreaded delay in communication and/or deliverables. if that’s ever happened between us and you’re reading this now, i’m really so very sorry. it’s an annoyance i’m familiar with, believe me—whenever i’m aware that i’m the one being the pain in the ass, don’t worry, i’m disappointed in me, too.
it was easier to own up to these things when i was still updating this blog with my musical progress each week; so, to be a musician who plays well with others, and just to be a better person overall, i think i should start doing that again.
here we go; a short list of things i need to do by the end of this month: record a demo of the new ukulele song i’ve been writing; record the cover of the saber rider theme that rekapper and i have been meaning to do; record vocals for the collab with throatcatcher; and spiffy up two of my WIPS well enough to be included in the next gentle whale sampler and the new hai compilation, respectively. game on.
oh, you know. just some pictures of me doing my job… at the pulp summer slam press conference.
that’s me (in the first picture, duh) with half of dragonforce! got to ask them (along with the other bands: amoral, circa survive, a skylit drive and coheed and cambria) a couple of questions. it was a good day. :)
