Finally got my new Mac updated with old Mac stuff, took advantage of Native Instruments’ 4th of July sale (when am I going to have time to learn all these plug-ins???), now I’m back to work on tunes! Got a sample of one below, actually a tune from the distant past that’s being updated. You ever create something and think, “Yeah, that’s cool.” then hide it away never to be seen again? That’s what I did with this one. Then I was at my day job and the song kept invading my thoughts for a month, so I decided it’s time to revisit.
Been in LA for ten months now. Many stories, but here are my highlights yesterday from a visit to Santa Monica/Venice:
- The Venice Boardwalk ain’t that far from the Cantina in Star Wars. I saw a drunk man in his…60s in a mermaid suit passed out on the boardwalk with a sign that said–surprise–Drunk Mermaid, along with a tip jar nearby. Seriously…
- On a shared Lyft ride home a woman expressed how awful dating in Los Angeles was. “There are so many beautiful women here that guys are constantly distracted, thinking they can get someone better.” I politely counter my recent experience of meeting a woman at a wine tasting event, exchanging info, setting a date the following weekend, then she stops answering my texts and voicemails.
- Then I see her at another event a few weeks later and she runs up to give me a big hug as if nothing had happened.
Moral of the story: There’s plenty of crazy to go around for both genders.
