I have a love/hate relationship with blogging. Mostly because I am tied into the social networking platforms trying my best to work with musicians and other writers, I often find some projects get put to the wayside. But I also like my advocate blog sometimes because I know it reaches an audience that is much more varied from my usual readership.

What's been happening? Lots. Since the last time I wrote in this blog.. (Dec.) The band picked up a new member, went on our second (mini) tour of Texas and is currently working on two new albums. One will be the typical soft sweet ballads most people are used to when they hear the loveletter, and the other will be the rousing indie stuff we have been playing the last few months that has gotten a killer response. A little of that is my fault. I love evolving with the band, but I just love brooding songs of unrequited love and hopelessness that goes nowhere.. so sue me without that, there would be no band and I make music for the sake of music.

At any rate. Sometime last year, we had this idea to write a musical. A loveletter musical, get our friends to put it on with us. Why not? You're looking at the only indie emo folk hybrid to come out of Victoria and repeatedly do what people tell us we can't do.... I'm not saying our musical will be great. Not at all... I hate musicals personally. But I like songs. I like our songs... and I like our stories... so maybe I don't really hate musicals. Maybe I just hate all the musicals people shove down my throat. Maybe I should just make my own because people say I can't and when people don't care for it... I can reply with "How many have you made?" So I decided to start writing in this blog again Vicky Texas, because for the first time in awhile, I have something to write about again... I get to document this process and share it with you...
