i have 3 rehearsal dates booked with the guys and then we're recording some demos of my new songs!
i probably don't need to tell you this, but i'm f*cking excited.
i also have a lot of lyrics to memorize!
with the exception of a couple of the songs, i wrote everything within a 2 week time period, and i basically know the words i wrote, but sometimes i forget, given that there are about 14 new songs.
we'll only record 4, i think.
and i'm so happy with my recent 30 day photoshop trial download...just made a banner for my myspace page. i feel like i'm moving into a new flat and slowly decorating all the rooms.
hanging up photos, dusting off shelves, making it my own.
i feel so empowered by photoshop....like i can finally keep up with all the 12 year olds....making banners, using code...all that stuff scared me til recently.
now i'm all over it.
today i cooked lunch for salvie and giorgio. giorgio is our friend. his band is called vadoinmessico and you can find it in my top friends on myspace. they were recording here at the house, and i decided to cook linguini with mussels, chili, white wine and garlic. very light sauce, very yummy. risky to cook pasta for an italian, but i think i did ok.
and i gotta say - the fresh mussels at tesco are really good! i was a bit nervous. never cooked mussels before. had to pull off all this weird plant-like stuff which was sticking out from their shells. i felt really bad doing it. but not bad enough to travel to the ocean and dump them back in.
ok i'm off to learn lyrics. and practice.
this is fun.
