Its official... I'm in freak-out mode. This happens every year about this time.  I'm getting ready for the epic loopfest season and there's always many things to do that haven't been done yet.  Except this year. 

I've got it all done.  I'm on schedule, I had an unexpected expansion for one of the fests.  The logos should be done tonight. Then it's promo, promo, promo....I don't know why I'm so tense.   I'm guessing it's a few yeas of habit.  My tour schedule is pretty full.  I've got most of my bases covered.  I'm still soliciting sponsors. But everything is handled.  I wonder if I'll look back at this post in a month a have a good laugh...

Today I cranked out a bunch of video. I need to do some tweaks on the cameras.  I'm not liking the quality I'm getting.  I had it set better a while back.  I need to figure that out again.  Getting most of my house stuff caught up.  Got my paperwork caught up.  Got the horn in the shop, again.  Sheesh... really hoping I found a good repair tech this time.  It's tough getting your horn repaired in San Antonio.  Competence is a real problem down here. But I've got my Yamaha to jam on, and for once I'm nowhere near as critical about it as I used to be. 

Got a little airplay in Philadelphia from an older recording - that's always awesome.  Got the new loop record done and waiting for my buddy Zack to throw some EQ on it.  And we've finished up the last O.M.N.I track which is awesome.  West Kings Highway just got a regular Friday night gig and La Chichada rehearsal are super-productive.  Got some new loopers coming down for my Wednesday night gigs and they're all great.  You tube channel is plodding along.  Trying different things with that with a little success here and there, but nothing that really makes a difference.

All in all things are really good right now.  Still, the pay sucks across the board.  That's pretty much the last missing piece.  Marriage is great, I do love San Antonio although after three years the honeymoon is finally starting to fade.  There is an incredible amount of stupid shit constantly going on that is irking me right now.  But it's 1000 times better than before, so I'm going to be contentedly irked for the moment. 

Really working my ass off these days thought.  Up late and it's fast and furious on the computers.  Right now I've got a album uploading to a licensing site, the other computer is uploading two videos. I just finished an article of tips and tricks for looping performance, sent out about 100 emails, did some Roots biz, check out some tunes, clean the office up a little, did some research for some home projects, chad a couple domestic duties to handle, pimped some videos, web-page and social media updates, calendar updates.... oy. And while my body is tired, my brain is frenetic - it's not stopping...it's hard to shut off right now.  I got one lesson to teach in a little bit and then I think I'm taking the night off.  We'll see how that goes...
