Just Busy, Not Dead

Busy and interesting weekend. Haven't had time to read many blogs. I love doing open mic. I'm gonna try to do at least one a week even when my gig schedule is busy. It's a terrific way to find out how your material connects to people who are listening intently. As opposed to say, ordering a round of whatever and sharpening their pickup lines. Before and after my own performance, which is usually 3 or 4 songs, I do have wait a long time listening to others. Sometimes it is a painful listening experience. It's refreshing though to see where I came from. That off key guy pounding chords and moving spastically, or not at all, was me my first few times. Years ago. Had I seen myself then, I would never have gone on. It's good to see where you came from. It puts how you got to where you are in a sharper focus. Points to where you're going. People in all walks of life can get the same experience by helping out fledglings in their jobs. Next weekend I have two gigs, though. Have to check around and see what open mics are running on other nights.

Did a lot of planning on my promotional video Saturday with Mark Zampella, my producer. How lucky am I to have a guy who wears so many hats so well? Dude does graphic art and video production as well as mixes sound and plays guitar. On top of that, he's a terrific friend. We tend to laugh a lot.

Struggling with a new E-zine format that I have to get out today for next week's gig notices to my Florida fan base. Also obsessively replacing fat molecules with muscle. Will somebody please tell me again when the hell the endorphin rush starts? I need that to start pretty damn soon. Is that whole endorphin rush thing a hoax/ has anybody out there ever experienced it during intense cardio workouts? I get nothing but the need for a shower.
