Taking a Beat . . . or 2 . . . or 12

Well . . . that was certainly an abrupt break from the blog!  I’m sorry to have left some of your comments hanging, for leaving some blog awards unanswered, and for disappearing from your posts without a word.

Big D and I welcomed some unexpected opportunities and surprising changes.  All good.  But the blog had to take an immediate back seat, and a flight out the proverbial window soon followed – leaving my blogging manners to twist in the spring breeze.

I think of you all often, and I look forward to catching up with all of your blogs in August.  Now . . . it’s time to take that summer break I planned all along.  🙂

Have a great summer!

You Tubular

You Tubular

When You Tube suggested I make a commercial to boost my channel’s ratings, the words “cross promotion” came to mind.  What a brilliant idea they had!  Get more people to view my videos, and lure them over to the blog.  After just a few days of running the commercial, I noticed that my number of You Tube subscribers had jumped up by ten.

And then I got reading glasses.

That number was a little smaller than I originally thought. . .  By nine.

So, the bad news is that my near vision has declined.  But the good news is that my distance vision has improved by a lot since college.  An allegory for life?  Let’s hope so.

 

And with my long-distance visions in mind, I put together a long-overdue demo of my studio work – a vocal sampler like a box of Valentine’s chocolates.  Please let me know if there are any you’d like to spit out.

P.S.  The first song is a sneak peek (or would that be a near hear?) of our new song, coming soon.
