coffee talk & such
hey there, i thought we'd have a chat over coffee today.
you are being magically transported to swallow cafe in brooklyn. it's one of my favorite spots to sit among the other laptop-wielding starving artists, hipsters, and poseurs of the neighborhood. i like to blog, browse craigslist, photoshop, research... you know, internet/ computer stuff. and it beats sitting at home.
have a seat!
man... i haven't blogged for two days... that's like forever in blog time. i almost feel like apologizing for my absence, even though that's just absurd. i also am not very caught up with my reader (omg, i just looked at it, and it's at 240 items....)
but actually i've just been busy. i've been working a bunch and even had a photography gig last night!
AND. the mastering engineer sent me a draft of the finalized EP. i'm so excited to listen to it!! since we've stopped tracking, i've been feeling a lack of musicality in my life lately. so now i want to/ should start planning more live performances.
i've also been attempting to do the cover art myself, and it's turning out pretty good! i've been slowly getting better with my design skillz. a guitar student told me the other day that i was a "renaissance woman," and i scoffed at the time.
but the more i think about it, the more i realize how much i've learned over the years from adapting over and over again. i used to be only an artist. only music. now i have tons of useable skills! music, photography, design, copywriting, social media, branding and publicity. the list goes on...
another promising sign: matt and i actually started work on the kickstarter video that i hope will help to reimburse myself for production costs for the EP.. we've got about 10 seconds down. lol. it's pretty sad, but hopefully we can do more work this weekend.
thanks for the tawk. now i'm out the door to go thrift shopping with maeve! what's been going on in your world lately?
