Just spent a couple more hours trying to find places to promote Silber music videos. It’s harder than it should be to find active sites that deal with indie labels. I’m finding a lot of sites that seem really cool from 2007. If anybody knows any from 2010, post a comment.
Talked to Aaron from If Thousands & the big news is they’re going back into the studio. This of course also means they are back together as a band. I can’t remember if the breakup was officially official a couple years ago, but bands breaking up is just a natural thing that happens when members get married & have kids & the like. Anyway I’m excited to hear what they’re going to do this time out as it’s been way too long.
Talked to PD Wilder of Hotel Hotel & their album is about halfway done. Looking forward to the results on that one as well.
Trying to stay caught up on my emails to press & radio & it’s a bit hard sometimes.
Talked to Brian McKenzie about doing some recording together eventually. He wants me to write an album built around “Nevada Smith.” I guess I should do it. I mean, it’s probably one of my three biggest hits as far as personal satisfaction with a song. We also talked about some Electric Bird Noise material coming out on Silber.
Got a hard drive mirror software (remember how my hard drive glitched up a few weeks ago? I got a drive to replace it, but have still been living on the old drive’s borrowed time). So I’m hoping to fix that up soon. Then I can load up some new software on the laptop to have portable recording capabilities.
I went into my local Borders & their music magazine selection seemed exceptionally low. No Signal to Noise or The Wire or anything much. Granted a lot of the mags I used to get are dead, but the only two they had in stock that I would even peruse for reviewers to contact were The Big Takeover & Under the Radar. It felt weird.
Wrote two little 4 panel gag scripts for Lost Kisses. Just need to draw them up.
I’m trying to fool around with optical/video feedback & want to try feeding multiple cameras into the input via splitters. Anyone have experiences with that?
