A Sort Of Update

To be honest I don't know if I'll ever finish "the band story series" I think too much time has passed and my personal interest has waned and that is pretty much the end of it. I guess the end of the story is that I went on to record an album that still after all these years is one of my proudest accomplishments as a musician and I am am grateful to every friend that aided in the recording of it.

With that said I really haven't written in this thing in a long time.

I guess mostly because my present career has made me incredibly busy and as a result my free time has been at a premium and I have found myself losing interest in creating art in any form.

I have focused on more commercial ventures that are uninteresting to most, but generate a modest return. I guess that is probably the best explanation for my absence.

So basically at this point anyone that used to read this site has pretty much lost interest and disappeared.

Whats new with me these days? Well I recently got engaged to a wonderful chick which is very exciting. We are going through the sometimes comical adventure of trying to plan a wedding in what we hope to be the least painless way possible.

My LCD screen on my cell phone recently went out which has left me in a state of technological darkness. I'd be lying if I said I haven't thought about getting an Iphone. But I'd also be lying if I said I've come up with a way to rationalize it's purchase.

I'm mostly hanging out in my apartment just outside of Chicago watching obscure television shows on dvd and listening to as much music as time will allow.

Music as a whole hasn't been all that great lately though. I find myself more interested in documentaries and art flicks than going to concerts. more interested in restaurants than bars.

I've found my self getting sick of Rolling Stone and more interested in reading the Wall Street Journal.

Sometimes I wonder what the 16 year old version of myself would say about me now.

But then I remember that the 16 year old version of myself was completely out of touch with reality and wanted to be a professional punk rock musician.
