We have the basics for the sax part on a new song called tentatively “Cradle to the Grave” – but will need to be revisiting the verse and bridge – I will try to get some lyrics up here – I might post them first. I am not sure if Josh P will be able to deliver the album cover by the slated Nov 26th date, there is some breathless anticipation there no doubt. I have spoken to a respected co-worker in music about pitching an audio bed for a tv show…more to come there, as we are planning a very industrious approach to writing. I have some exciting announcements coming soon – to celebrate the 2 year mark of this blog – stay tuned.

doing some drum overdubs on a song – and trying to finish 2 others of my own. I spoke to a sax player about helping me with one of my new tunes. I am also putting in a dual screen monitor in the studio…should be cool.

I have added some shots of the snare project…right now the shell looks kinda like a beaver hit it – but I push ahead…the gallery is below here and also in the photo section. The latest shots of me carving out the interior are on their way. Note that when you click on an image – you open up a gallery viewer. I have written a new article entitled “Who in Hell is Satan?”- which you can read here if interested. I am working on some new tunes of my own – and of others, and have guests coming into Pajamas studio tonight. I asked Josh about showing the album work but he said it was too big – but it does look good – so we will have to be patient, he said he’d probably be done in a few weeks….

I will hopefully be meeting Josh on the album cover – maybe have something to show (but – well – you know those artist types…:-o)…working in pajamas studio doing some vocal and drum tracks (all guests, I am not drumming). You may not know this but I am trying to build a single piece snare drum from a piece of maple wood. I have done some preliminary research and found that it is harder to do than I had hoped – but I am making some headway, and I forge ahead undaunted, I will update you with pics and it progresses. I have also written a new article at The Examiner on forgiveness – you can click here to read it.
