For a vast amount of the northern hemisphere on this 3rd rock from the sun it’s still knee deep in the throngs of winter. What a winter it’s been. Tons of precipitation. I’m hearing about snow piled up over 10 feet high in Utah. This means one thing… I’ll be heading back up there to do some skiing in the next few weeks.
Here in Southern California it’s quite the opposite. It’s now been reaching temperatures of 75 to 80 degrees. Not mild. It doesn’t feel like February, no.
In the meantime, I’m attempting to finish up the major undertaking of getting all my studio backups in order. Getting things organized and updated. I can fully understand the need for interns to deal with this. It’s time consuming. It will be good to get rid of a bunch of older backups that aren’t as trusty. I’ll be happier in the long run with the new organization scheme and it will make getting remixes done on previous projects much easier.
Speaking of remixes, I’ve already stemmed out Hero Unexpected as a friend of mine has requested to do a remix on it. It will be interesting to hear it. It would be fun to have several different remixes to release at the same time as the single goes out. Something to think about.
While I enjoy today’s sunshine and sitting in the backyard, I’ll leave you with this pick for Single of the Day. It’s got a summery feel to help you feel warmer if you’re in a cooler climate at the moment. It’s also the first song I can think of that is very specifically gear towards women that I’ve featured here. I’m sure there are others, though they are escaping me at the moment.
I like the vibe of the music and I think that Sonia has a very earthy quality to her voice. It flows like a gentle brook near a backyard porch. I envision it’s a simple house with a very large meadow that the porch is looking out on. A meadow where the brook is cutting through it. Down home. Simple. Easy. Relaxed. I’m not familiar with the concept of keeping things in shoeboxes, but I’m sure it’s similar to my more modern CD/DVD organizers. Though I’m not keeping secrets of the heart of a member of the opposite sex in them.
What are some of the things you collect and save?
