WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Tuesday, December 14, 2004

The last few days, I've finally gotten my alarms working right. I've been getting up really early to do music. That's really the only consistent time I have to do it. Of course, it's more for things like doing keyboard parts, and cutting electric guitar tracks, because those can all be done through direct lines with headphones on. The other morning I did cut some acoustic guitar over a mic, but I was always afraid that I would wake up the fam. Nobody complained, though...

So, I've been recutting tracks on "Today and Yesterday".

This morning, though, I was starting to cut, and I heard Jacob crying from the next room. So, I go in and his CPAP face mask was all askew. I took it off, and helped him get back to sleep, or so I thought. A few minutes later he was calling, "Daddy!" again.

He wanted to come in and watch. So, I picked him up and brought him in and set him on the studio floor with a toy or two. That all went well for another couple of minutes, until Brendon showed up at the door. He started to climb up on my lap. I don't know if you're aware of this, but it's kinda tricky to record guitar parts with a seven-year-old on your lap.

But somehow I still manage.

Then he decided that it was time for us to have a father/son moment and play a little pinball on my computer. So, in the middle of cutting the track, he starts whining, "Let's play pinball!" Of course, it's hard for me to play the part right and answer at the same time, so he keeps at it. Finally, he just grabs the mouse and starts to close up Cubase so he can start the game.

Of course, I have to stop the track and reset it up for a punch-in, so I can finish...

I wish there was an emoticon for "rolling your eyes and sighing".
