If we don’t stick to a routine, we may be eligible to the slight foundations of our own mental health falling apart.....but having 3 days off this week from busking can’t hurt too much right?
Well, it’s 18:02 at the time of writing this and I’ve survived the day. Rachael has just left after we had a fun live streaming session on Socially Distant Fest combined with rehearsing songs that will go on our album.
I got to virtually meet her friend Patsy Thomas ‘officially’ whom I already know is a nice friendly person because of the energies I get from her live streaming shows.
Live streaming today has shown once again that that’s a whole lot more fun either using my loop pedal or jamming with a friend.
Before that, Rachael was finally able to come over after a frustrated day (bless her!) and get down her vocals and superb vibrato on ‘Serotonin Siren’ and I am so happy with with what she’s done, the new reflection filter and that thanks to family support....AND savings....I will be able to cross ‘buy an electronic drum kit, practice, record, become a session drummer’ off of my bucket list.
My concentration skills regarding writing today’s memoirs have literally slipped down a Heineken drenched slope due to celebrating the return of one of my other flat mates Rob aka Beefcake who has just returned from Portugal and according to the current law, he’s got to be in quarantine for 2 weeks but whether he does or not...no one needs to know and we’re all okay with however he wants to approach it.
Time to be kind and rewind again to around 5am when I had only planned to go and play with my ‘pet elephant’ but as my step dad had replied to my question about whether or not I could use some of my savings (that are in my parent’s name as I don’t trust myself with that money and neither do they!) to purchase an Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit - Eight Piece Mesh Electric Drum Set With 385 Electronic / Acoustic Drum Kit Sounds and Solid Aluminium Rack ....
After my stepdad checked with my bro if he’s okay with it as my bro now lives upstairs and I have no qualms with reminding you that...i finally got the go ahead and now i am just waiting for my stepdad to order it and then forward the email to me so that I know when it will arrive and then we can record the rest of our debut album....
And most of all....this reminds me yet again how Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters recorded the latter’s debut album all in his own studio and ever since, I’ve been wanting to follow in his footsteps. Exciting times ahead and it seems like once again, these positive energies are boosting my faith in my music career once more.
I would also like to give a special SHOUT OUT to friend and fan Merissa Karr who has been an avid follower of my music since I went back on Socially Distant Fest about a week ago and was very kind to donate a dose of love today towards getting our debut single ‘Serotonin Siren’ mixed and mastered!
Right....despite the lazy but distorted and restless mind I had for most of the day until I had a chat with Merissa and when Rachael came over and when Rob returned home...I’m looking forward to continuing that B- movie I started watching which is set in Thailand then maybe another movie after that!
