I've spent some days in the studio: 4 scattered over the past two weeks. I cut a Christmas tune for Brian Wiltsey. I also cut a tune for the band Echo's End. I also mixed both tunes. However, the past 2 weeks have been riddled by errands - trying to finally get the tiny things in my life in order. I am reclaiming my old studio - which lies in the building behind my house. It's been used for storage over the past 4 years. It HASN'T been taken care of. Many creatures hath taken residence there. I am currently trying to have them vacate. I bought a new dehumidifier & set it to KILL! My friend Kevin & I will dispose of the mold ridden couches tomorrow. This is all very exciting to me. I will stage my drums in there along with all of my guitar maintenance tools - like it was when I had my studio back there. It's just going to take a little time to gentrify.
This weekend was full of ZBB fun. We had a CD Release/Open House party last night for industry folks & our business partners. It was a wonderful night. Chef Rusty christened the new kitchen at the warehouse/headquarters/leather shop/machine shop/t-shirt shop/bus & cook trailer storage site... referred in our circles as the warehouse. & what a warehouse it is. We had about 150 folks for dinner & the party.
Today was slightly different. The 5 members of the band shot their scenes for the new video (due out next year). We did that at the warehouse then made our way to Zac's house for a party for the crew/family. Rusty, again, cooked up a storm & fun was had by all.
I've been juicing everyday... &, until today (day off), working out everyday. I feel SOOOO much better than I did a couple of weeks ago. I can't preach enough about it. Juicing is actually really cool. It curbs my appetite & flushes my body with vitamins & minerals found only in raw vegetables & fruits. It tastes like shit but it's totally worth it.
Anyway, I'll try to keep my 'at home' updates at tad more frequent. Reclaiming this house has been a full time job unto itself.
