I guess it has been busy. It feel like nothing much is changing though. We went back to Denton and recorded 14 songs. Its about 40 mis with of music and that was fun.
After returning to town and work the days slowed down a lot. But the following Friday we went to Comedy Works and watched a comic for Lacy's going away shin dig, we had some booze and we let loose a bit. The on Saturday we played the Washout Festival at Globe hall which was fun and we got to see a lot of old friends.
On Weds we got to go see T2 play at Hi-dive to start off another tour of theirs. They killed in and were loud as usual. I have been working on teaching myself how to make Pop Up cards and books.
This weekend has been a good one so far. It is Crissy's birthday weekend and so we have been out and about doing fun things. We Got her a new pair of shoes and then dyed them black so she could wear them to work, went and got her some new games, stopped by Trve on the way home for a beer, Talked to Fonda, got a print from her, came home, played games, ate tostadas, got a little crazy and listened to records until around 4 a.m.
We tried out a lot of the new gear we got over the weekend at the weekly band practice. We were very pleased with it all. The EMC amp is super loud and sounds pretty great. I am very happy about this.
John and Jasta came into visit for two days and we all hung out, had food and beer and caught up with life. They showed up Monday evening and left Weds morning.
Over the following weekend we went to the flea market, got a bunch of food, and then camp home and made some more pasta. it was pretty darn good pasta
So the last week of the month went out with a flair. I have been trying to solve a lot of my problems by throwing money at them. This has helped get me back to a small resemblance of normality. My phone died finally and I had to get a new one, and I also bucked up an purchased a soldering iron worth its weight in salt. Its not super fancy but I do use a soldering iron on enough of a regular basis that I go through about 5 cheap ones ($20-40) a year. So hopefully this will cost less in the long run. First project... I converted an old radio I picked up into a guitar amp. This is not a harp project but I enjoy doing this to these old radio because they have such unique and diverse sounds. I wired this one so that the radio still works, even when playing the guitar. Or you can just use the power transformer and amp solo. Below are a few tracks that I am sure were more fun to make (after a few glasses of wine) then they are to listen to.
Also, Crissy made some awesome Zucchini Flowers stuffed with Bacon, Goat Cheese, Mushroom
