I ran into two old friends this weekend. Bothe were old schoolmates I hung around with in Victoria and Bloomington. Both were musicians back then. My Victoria buddy, Ruben, still plays guitar and wants to get together to jam. I wish I had time! We exchanged numbers and I intend to send him a CD or two.
Herman was the bass player for Legasys. He and I were original members and he was in band down in Bloomington. He played a smooth sax, great guitar, and a thundering bass. He stopped by the house just as dinner was about to come out of the oven and I threw a little jam for him.
I was totally suprised when he told me had an original reel from Legasys' minimal studio work. If fate smiles we may be able to digitize and rework those tracks! That would be way cool!
Jumping in the other emotional direction now, My cellphone dumped a ton of old messages on me saturday afternoon while I was in town. Jesse De La O had tried to get in touch. I missing his messages as I know how hard he works to get things done. Gotta call him today!
One of my social sites pages got hacked to heck and some (expletive deleted) wiped the page clean except for one friend who is my niece. She turned me on to the site and now my page is (another 15 expletives deleted) ruined. I think the death penalty should be the only punishment for such intelligent criminals.
Swinging back into a good mood now, I finally started the sketches for the new album cover. I'm rediscovering how to work in chalks. The only thing I'm missing is black cunstruction paper, but I might try some smother surface to render on. The white sketchbook is easy to work on but the texture affects the layer too much. In any case I've finally started somthing I really want to do.
I also made a nice accomplishment of changing the string saddles on my strat. This marks the first time I have ever done anything this major to any of my guitars. It also marks my very first intonation setting from scratch. Thank God for electronic tuners! That strat is now screaming like never before thanks to that wonderouse metal, "titainium"!
