I would blog

March 23, 2009

I would blog, but I can’t really think up much to say.

Work: work is slow. Progressing ok, but I could really do with a nice productive week to set me up in a good mood for spring. As it is, my latest algorithm is showing potential, but annoying, it wouldn’t work quite well enough.

The Als and the Pussycats: have played three gigs in the last two weeks. Whistlebinkies was very disappointing. Sound on stage was terrible ( I could hear myself at least, but not very much of anybody else). An 11pm start, coupled with being cut off half way through our set left me wishing i had just gone to bed instead of heading out. But hey, you win some you lose some. Talking about winning some, the Untapped Talent BotB Finals went pretty well. We came 2nd, and more importantly we played well. So well in fact that I’m pretty sure I complimented Niki. Which doesn’t happen often. To round things off, we played at the Cab again last night, which was probably our final gig, for the time being/current line-up.

AlKandAlC: Zip. Naught. Nadda. Nothing. Although there is a (TBC) gig at the Golden Rule on the 9th. And Ali has just moved back to Edinburgh. Sadly though, the poor man is incredibly busy and I imagine it’ll be a while before we get back into our old routine. Hoping he can make it over for a curry and music evening night on Friday (tempted him buy suggesting I’ll cook my special lamb curry). Truth be told, still a little lost/directionless since the Blue Blazer gig. [Blue Blazer gig was near-perfect, and I can’t imagine bettering it anytime soon, so, well, what should we do?] I guess the answer is to get a nice cd done. But see above comment about Ali K. being very busy.

Cantor: Nothing. I was busy gigging last Thursday so we didn’t do our usual weekly jam. We were going to do some rough recording on Sunday, but Louisa and I borrowed Daisy for the afternoon instead. Hopefully we’ll make a jam this week though. And nearly got a good first draft of two different tracks done!
