  • Past couple days finished up a simple remaster (with a few remixed tracks) of Irrelevant, Look What You Made Me Do, and Attempt No Landing.
  • This completes updating of Mailbox studio album catalog.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Still ironing our some passages and riffs for “Winter Song.”
  • I think I have it where it needs to be now.
  • I still don’t know how or if we’ll be able to record as a group. Might have to go solo.

Mailbox

  • Several months ago I tinkered with mixes of songs from 1999-2000.
  • I spent yesterday and today putting a final coat of polish on them.
  • Not sure exactly how I will release them. It’s kind of a best of 3 albums.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Worked on “Winter Song” just a bit. Settles on the tempo. Printed up a lyric sheet.
  • Planning to lay down rough guitar and vocals tomorrow so I have building blocks I can use for cutting and pasting an arrangement together.

Elephants of Scotland

  • Wrote music for a new song. Working title: Europa Irish Ballad. Because it’s kinda Irish-y and sad and uses a riff from an old instrumental of mine called “Europa”
  • Needs lyrics. Greg suggests I write about a “man who is in love with an octopus and must find a way to tell his children.”
  • I’m tagging this as EoS because it definitely will need John and Bob to help me flesh it out.

HH Musical

  • Finished the book!
  • Going to review with Greg on Tuesday which will only yield improvements and even more ideas.

Studio

  • Fixing an OSB wall that I stupidly glued carpet tile to. Removing tiles took quite a bit of the wall with it. So, spackle and paint.
