Blog: Newsletter Day
I must a confess, however, that it doesn't feel that way from this end! There is a TON of stuff going on and I am barely keeping it under control as it IS. Take Moon Horse for instance - as well as learning lines, GRAPPLING with props, and preparing for the preview shows (which start next week - YIKES!) I've also been beavering away on the RADIO version, which I'm going to go and hand deliver THIS VERY LUNCHTIME for someone to have a look at. In the same lunch hour I'm ALSO popping round the corner to see someone about a new venue (and, possibly, whole new MODUS OPERANDI) for Totally Acoustic - by "new modus operandi" i just mean it might be MONTHLY, rather than ELECTRICAL or anything, don't worry! We're hoping to have a SUMMER SPECIAL in London to go with the two Edinburgh ones, then MIGHT switch over to a regular night every month starting in the winter.
ALSO MEANWHILE the lumbering behemoth that is Dinosaur Planet rumbles on. I've started work in EARNEST on the eventual multi-media aspect of the CD - the SCRIPT is pretty much done, and over the weekend I finished transcribing THE CHORDS. This was actually quite restful - drawing chord diagrams for the (not very many!) chords required was oddly relaxing, and now I just need to add some PHOTOGRAPHS to make a rather nice little package. When that's done I really need to get on with NOTE TAKING for the MIXING SESSIONS which begin in a couple of weeks. Oh, and there's the contents of the CD Booklet to work out too!
And then there's also various OTHER gigs - not least one a week today when i am [EEEK!!] COMPERING - and SECRET PROJECTS including a SONG I've got to learn for someone next week and new batches BADGES and possible T-SHIRTS and... well, you get the idea.
I think the best thing I can do to make things easier, rather than actually GET ON and DO some of these things, is to write a lengthy blog about it and drive myself into PANIC about it all! AAAARRRGGH!!!
