Ohhh man. I'm sorry I'm in here so seldom, you guys. I feel like I have failed you. I still miss you all and miss the forum, but...I guess I started to lose steam after Looper, when it became evident that message boards just aren't the preferred method for fan-creator interaction anymore
I just want to take this opportunity to say I love how long this forum has kept going, and how many people are still kicking around here since the beginning. I also love that Marc has never changed his username
I feel like I missed why we're playing catch up since 2010, but here's my last five years in a nutshell: Started a band that year, which has now recorded three home recordings and a studio EP and done a few small regional tours. Started writing solo material, released a demo in 2013, and am starting to plan a proper full-length to record this winter (probably). Lost my Regular Grownup Job two years ago next month, and have been working odd jobs and scraping by. Making more money from music, though still not enough. But in the last couple years I've started to play at being a studio musician, and provided washboard and vocals for close to 10 different recordings locally, so I'm hoping to keep that up (and maybe actually get paid sometimes). This summer I acted as musical director for a theatrical production for the first time, which was exhausting and terrifying but rewarding in the end.
Couple weeks ago ChadPeter and I came tantalizingly close to making a movie together, but things fall apart. Wouldn't that have been a hoot?
After living alone in the same apartment for 7 years I finally got priced out last fall, and am now living in a place I can't afford with a roommate I can't stand. So, things could be better.
But I still love y'all <3
I'm way too lazy to ever be truly belligerently insane.
