Being sick sucks. Afforded an almost 2 week vacation from work during Christmastime, I was looking forward to using that period to work on lots of music stuff, mostly vocal recording. Well, having a severe cold screwed that up. Not only was my throat too sore to hardly talk, let alone sing/yell, my head was too stopped up to even hear correctly. Non-fans may swear that I’ve had that problem for years, but I assure them that’s not the case.
So yeah, lately I’ve barely been able to enjoy listening to music, not to mention make it. But it gave me the chance to do some other things. I’m getting closer to being able to unveil the official cover for Boobs, Butts, and Feets. And I’ve also been jotting down lyrical scraps and concepts for new songs. It’s hard to say how much of it will amount to much, but I’ve planned out a draft of a song of some sort that will feature acronyms. I won’t say anymore about it, but it should be funny at least.
In other news, I’m still waiting on a project to finish that has been in progress since September or something. I think I’ve vaguely mentioned it before. Maybe I announced exactly what it is. I don’t remember. Either way, that will probably be a thing that you’ll be able to hear soon. And then as soon as my sickness is gone, I’ll be able to complete a project that I’ve been wanting to do for months that should be able to go live shortly thereafter.
And then…or maybe sometime within all that stuff happening, I’ll make the last additions to Boobs, Butts, and Feets. Since I’m not going to be able to get permission to use audio samples from a few movies as they appeared in the unofficial 2008 release of Boobs, Butts, and Feets, I’m going to re-record the parts myself. Or more specifically, get other people to record them for me. Various reasons have kept that from happening as quickly as I would like, but progress has been made. For one song containing some RoboCop samples, I did manage to get all the samples redone, although I’m going to need to redo one part since I recorded with a congested nose.
When I update next, I should be able to shed some more light on what the status is of Boobs, Butts, and Feets, which, fingers crossed, will be good. There might even be some visual and/or audio preview goodness.
