It would appear that I have been neglecting this little chronicle lately, haven't I? Well then, then time has come for an update.
This is a photo of me and my buddy Kevin taken in New York in 2006. I talked to him last night for the first time in more than two years(!), and it was super fun. We communicate pretty regularly via email, text message and even Facebook, but we realized we hadn't actually spoken in a very long time when I didn't know that he has a new girlfriend. Um, he's been with this "new" girlfriend for... well, two years. Okay, then. One of the best things about Kevin is that he and I have known each other since sixth grade and have been good friends since high school. So whether the topic is girlfriends or boyfriends, work, music, the death of a parent, whatever, Kevin is a person I can talk to about it.
It's really nice to have old friends.
You know what else is nice? Working on recordings with your little cover band. As I mentioned in my last post, Sober Nixon has been doing some recording, and the process is going well. Here is an early mix of our version of Blondie's "Dreaming." It's not done yet; Kenn, our guitarist, still needs to record his part, and then we'll likely remove some of the more karaoke-esque sounding instruments that are part of Ryan's recording program. I will say that I'm pretty happy with my singing on this one, although I always can find something I don't like about my vocal performances.
Is it wrong that at 41 years old, with a successful career that I love, I still secretly wish I was a rock star?
