Today I worked on remixing some songs I've written. They weren't initially planned for electronica so I'm trying to take bits and pieces and compose it all in a classical composer's mindset. So far so good.
One of the songs is called Nocturnal Breed which totally rocks. Even I would dance to it. In the same song I pulled out a couple of "This one's for you Liz" several times. You really can't understand what I'm saying unless you know already what the words are. *dink! And most likely you won't think it's funny or cool unless you were in the car discussing what we were discussing that day. Forget about it.
My iBook has turned out to be quite the recording studio. Everything sounds great, even when I'm just recording guitar which I am starting tomorrow. I figure you aren't really selling out to techno as long as it's artful beats. I love having multiple vocal lines and I've been drawing (in my head) from Tori's Choirgirl for inspiration just for those layers. It's all a lot different than just pressing buttons and knowing what goes where. Plus, it eats time away. I spent 4 hours on a song that was 3 minutes long. That's longer than I have practiced for any aria (except Rossini.. I love you) in one day.

The new Tori (some old) videos were inspiring. Especially the commentaries and my favorite part is when she comments on Talula (I think that's the one) when she says... I have no idea what this video is about. Classic. I've always hated that video. Who knows, maybe it's just over my head and hers. But cutting plastic with a torch? Naaaaaaaaay I say!

Today it sleeted and snowed here and I missed it. Honestly, I don't care. Most of the day I just kept to myself. I find that being at camp requires that I have to make more time for myself, more than I usually do.

In less than a month I will be in AR. for 2 weeks. Everyone who knows me knows that everytime I go to Conway it's a big drama trying to figure out where I'm going to stay to see the people I know. It gets very tiresome. I don't like having the feeling of forcing people out of their routines nor am I content with being a nuisance . So I think I've decided to stay in a hotel there for a couple of days if I have the money. Or not.. I dunno. Maybe I'll invite some people over and we can get drunk, catch up on old times and trash the place. Then again... I don't remember the going rate at Economy Inn or the Super 8. I'll have to check on that. I will be flying into LR airport and I'm looking for someone to pick me up and take me to Conway or to hang out in LR for a couple of days. I'll keep touch!
