that's the time.
i'm home on a saturday night. didn't feel like going out.
watched 3 minutes of ET, tried to write a song, washed the dishes, sent some emails, tried to write again, it didn't happen, wasted a bunch of time online, looking at stuff which is best left alone...
things are really good at the moment.
lots of exciting stuff happening.
we are in the process of redoing my website, which i think i've mentioned before, and one of the coolest things about it is that all the photos will be taken by salvador and me. we already have a bunch of them. i love that everyone wants this to be back to basics, raw, stripped down, real...no more stylists and makeup and glossy posed photos. although that was a lot of fun to try, it just wasn't me!
that is the most important thing i have learned in the past year - no one knows what is better for me that ME. no one knows who i am more than I DO!!
i think i finally understand that. have stopped looking to other people to tell me what i need, who i am, etc.
it's all so very obvious if i just open my eyes, which is what i've done.
ok - getting boring - will stop now!
i just wanted to let you all know how excited i am about everything - all the changes. and the photography. i have discovered a new love.
we bought a lens which creates a really cool effect which i cannot describe in words without getting REALLY boring. so you'll just have to wait and see some of the photos we're taking.
there will be so much stuff on the new website. lots of photos and videos and exclusive content. at least that's the plan. but first we are going to post a questionnaire, which i will let you know about when the time is right. i want to know what you guys want.
i can't remember if i've already mentioned this, and i'm too lazy at the moment to go back and look at old posts to find the answer. forgive me if i repeat myself.
oh - i'm giving away a free track when you fill out the questionnaire, and i'll let you know when it's all set up and ready to go.
but it's not about all that, really, is it...it's all about the music.
and i will have new music to start getting out to you asap. whenever that is.
thanks for hanging in there while i sort everything out.
oh - when we redo the website, this blog will be frozen in time. i'm going to start posting my blogs on the front of my website. just wanted to let you know in advance.
believe me when i say that i would SO MUCH RATHER BE TOURING THAN POSTING BLOGS!!!
god - it really gets to me sometimes.
but i know it's only temporary and soon i will have more shows booked than i can even imagine and i will be playing all the time. that's really all i want to do.
blogging is fun, but i'd so much rather be writing to you from the bus, or a hotel room, or an airport.
i'll remember this when that's all going on, though, and i'll be all the more grateful for where i am having been where i am.
oops. i forgot about this blog and recorded a video. then came back to shut down the computer and here it is. from two hours ago.
new video up on youtube really soon. it's uploading. it's for arlan cos i've promised her a song by this particular artist for ages.
i think this house has ghosts. i keep hearing stuff. it's really freaking me out and i hope my housemates come home soon!!! i've never heard ghosts in here before, but i really think i have been hearing them all night.
there's a line in the song i just recorded..."i still don't blame you for leaving baby it's hard living with ghosts." and i feel like i invited them in or something.
i don't know. it's just freaking me out.
and it's 3 am and i want to go to sleep.
but i'm scared.
oh well. i'll just have to try and remember not to go towards the light...or build my next home on a native american burial ground. not too many of those around london, so i guess i'm ok. although the odds of someone being hanged somewhere around, well, anywhere in london, are pretty good.
ughh. i've had mice. now ghosts. what's next?!?
