I’ve been running but not putting these up for the past few days. I’m not sure why I’ve not been posting them. This morning, I listened to the latest Decemberists record, The King is Dead. I’ve been listening to it on and off for the past few months and I have actually been in enjoying it, however, yesterday I heard them talking to Jian on Q about how they got Peter Buck from REM to play lots of the guitars in the studio (well…barn), and now the whole thing makes much more sense to me. This is the danger of purchasing music from iTunes and not having liner notes to read. I’d been thinking that “All Arise!” sounded more than a lot like “Orange Crush”. Ahh… I get it.

Listened to Saint Aggie’s again this morning (God there’s some stuff I’d like to remix) but thought mostly about the (yet as unnamed and still formulating) new show. Trying to come up with a good newsy line like “Keeping them honest” that is a catch phrase for one of the main characters. It would be great if it could end up being a song title. Meh. It’ll come. Going to work Tuesday on the new Aggie’s songs…and one more re-mix of the Wheat Pool.

Listened to the cast recording of Saint Aggie’s ’84 this morning. I wrote two scenes for the show yesterday and I’m thinking the two week completion deadline might actually be achievable. I’m going to start on a new song for the show on Monday which I think I’m going to call something like “HOW CAN THINGS BE WORSE THAN THIS?”, about being characters stuck in a musical adaptation of Shakespeare.

I have to finish Saint Aggie’s ’84 in the next two weeks. That is the deadline I’ve set for myself. This morning as I sloshed through the ice and slush I thought through the directions in which the play is going to go. Some of the ideas are going to shake things up considerably. On my headphones was Radio 3 again. I love that Danny Michel song, “Switchman” that’s from last year’s Sunset Sea record. I’ve heard it a few times on R3 in past couple of weeks. The “Switchman” in the song is the guy that switches us between the tracks as we chug along rails of our lives where we have little of no control. It’s all up to him, the “Switchman”. Well, “Switchman”, just let me finish writing this damned show, let me figure out how to fix scene 3 and don’t let me slip on this f#@KINg ice.

Listened to an interview with King Cobb Steelie on Radio 3 this morning. (They’re celebrating 20 years as a band). I remember meeting them a few times around T.O. in the 90s when we were there all the time. Great band. Made me feel like it wasn’t too crazy to be putting a new record out after 17 years! And another good omen: CD BABY has sold out of FAMOUS LAST WORDS and it’s only been up on their site for 3 days…they just sent me an urgent message asking for a re-stock. That’s pretty cool…of course, they only stocked 5 copies. But this time they’re asking for 12. We’re moving up in the world.

As I set out running this morning the wind was blowing and the snow was beginning to fall. Josh Klassen’s spring storm had arrived…and it hasn’t stopped since…14 hours later. Uggghhhhh!!!!

Tomorrow the photo will be white again.

    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
