Every single time I come on here to post I realize how lazy I am being about posting on here dammit!
BUT I am being very UNLAZY in many ways! I had a great time on the west coast though it was only 8 days which is pretty short for me when I travel. Met up with Crumb and met a lot of nice 78 collectors plus saw some friends and got to lay out in 95 degree weather on Venice Beach which was hilarious. So weird seeing everyone just smoking weed everywhere without worrying about it.
Since i got back I am taking some good advice from Robert and others and am going forth with some major productivity on my part. I have a great band, an amazing hubby who encourages me constantly and have enough connections that if I really work on writing some autobiographical stuff in book form I have a decent chance of getting it read by some big publishing houses...not to mention having anything I write being read by other authors who will help me with suggestions and editing. Sales from music are decent and I have all the time in the world to get better on guitar, write, learn new songs for the next album, work out like crazy, go to shows and see all my friends and socialize all night if I choose to. So I must take advantage of this and just go go go for it all. Including posting on this damn site twice a week!
I wake up. Return all texts and emails then take my laptop to the stoop next door by 1pm and write for two full hours every day and man, does it feel good. Writing and learning an instrument are solitary things to be doing and being outside just that little bit keeps me from going nuts. I leave for Europe the first week of July and we will be doing gigs, recording and doing a lot of podcasts with Crumb one of which we are releasing as a double album with Crumb artwork. Between the two of us, John and I have about 6 projects going on.
AnyWEED, here are some pics from LA and SF all mixed up cause that's how I do...Seeing Meredith Axelrod and Craig Ventresco play live when we were out there was just incredible. We also got to hang out with director Terry Zwigoff and his wife Missy whom we jammed with amongst other fun things...
