Eddie and Matt of Suicide Kings came over on Saturday and we laid down some guitar and bass tracks. I think it went pretty well, I got to experiment with recording techniques for stand-up bass. I’m going to work on writing some drums and then editing the tracks we recorded.
Feeling creative, writing ideas down. How many grains of sand can one fit through the hourglass.
Had yummy Dim Sum this morning with Jolie and Misha, gonna drop by Misha’s tonight for some Halo 2. Oh yeah, Pacific Ocean Market off of 120th is pretty cool.

Just got home.
Went out to Netherworld and met up with Eddie and his newly found bass player. I’m going to be producing and programming drums for his new rockabilly/punk/industrialish band. For those of you not from Denver, Eddie Suicide was previously a bass player in the short-lived Divine Reich and roadie/guitar tech for me in Deviant. I slated them some studio time next Saturday, should be interesting as it’s definately a new genre for me to work in. I’ve never recording a stand-up bass before so we’ll see how that works out.
Next, Jolene and I went to Wave. Music was good, Cari and Suzanne looked fucking amazing tonight, I wish I had brought my camera. Kristian was supposed to meet up with me but the bastard still hadn’t shown up by midnight so I grew impatient and left.

Insomnia I hate you.
Spent a few hours working on Sweeney Todd material last night, came up with cool ideas on how to take the original score, destroy it and rebuild it as one of my own creations.
Jolene came home stressed about the wedding so we chatted about that for a bit. After getting stressed about that I spent a few more hours just listening to songs in my vocal booth until I realzed it was nearly 4am and I had to be up at 7:30.

Time can do wonderful things.
I’ve noticed that since I quit drinking I’ve spent more time reflecting on my life, what I’ve done and what I’m spending my time doing now. I’ve been spending more and more time contemplating what is important in my life. On the downside, sometimes I think too much about depressing topics such as existing as a sentient being and whether or not it’s a blessing or a curse (more on that subject another time).
One thing that is changing in my life, I’m pleased to announce. I’m getting married on June 25th. Yes, getting married. Soon invitations with fly out, outfits will be fitted, RSVPs, dinner arrangements and all the complications of a ritual that has existed for so long. I will no longer be an outside to this mysterious “married club” that some of my friends already belong to. June is very close, just about 3.5 months from now, so I’m sure my experience will be even more chaotic than usual.
Nothing is changing really, at least in my perception. I’ve known my fiancé for eight years now and have been committed to her for most of that time. The only thing that’s changing is maybe I’m growing up just a bit and realizing what is important to me as an adult.
