All I want to do is watch leave work, go the the mall with my loved ones, go for a walk with my dog, relax with my girls, watch How I Met Your Mother and Lost with Leah, eat salt and pepper chips, and watch Avatar: The Last Airbender. That's all I want to do.
We had rehearsal last night. Spent most of it working on a new song, "Preaching To The Choir Invisible, Pt. 2." Some songs don't lend themselves to being played to a rigid metronome and this is a first for us, but we're figuring it out. We've always played everything to a click, so this is us, stepping out of our comfort zone. We wanted to have it ready to unveil at SXSW, but we decided last night that that isn't going to happen. We'll probably pull it out at our CD release show in May, with who knows how many other new songs. We're also discussing covering "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths, which I think would be a lot of fun.
I've decided that I should get around to buying a road case for my amp at some point so I don't have to fix it every other year. So if anyone has a road case to fit a Fender 410 Deville at a reasonable price, let me know.
Harper turned 10 months old yesterday. It really feels like just yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital. Leah has written another sweet "birthday" letter on her blog. I agree with everything she says. Best 10 months of my life.
