slowly but surely, I am leaving the house on a regular basis and getting things going. I have two producing jobs lined up in the next few weeks, both with bands that I think are really cool and have a lot of potential.
I am also going out to a lot of shows, and enjoying spending time with my friends in other bands (and seeing a surprising number of people who I don't know wearing Headboard shirts).
last night, I hung out with 3 people who have been instrumental in Headboard since at various times: Dominic, Nick, and Jacky.
if I had never met Dominic Davi, I am not sure I would have ever started a band, and
surely, Headboard would not have gone as far as it did. when he left
the band, there was a lot of weirdness, and it was like breaking up
with a girl--I acted childish and stupid and for anyone who has followed
this saga, consider this a public apology for 1998 and 1999.
thoroughly enjoying nothingwithout any live shows to play or band practices to attend, i must say I am enjoying this break from the unrelenting pace i am usually accustomed to.
i've gotten some terrific emails from people, and I remain inspired as I head forward with future plans, both headboard-related and new projects.
it has been quite nice to catch up on television, reading, and all sorts of other slacker-activity. I gave myself a birthday gift and got an APEX DVD player that plays VCD and SVCD discs.
the main appeal? watching tv rips downloaded off the net, so i can finally make more space on my tivo and archive smallville, undeclared, and family guy episodes to SVCD.
today, the directv guy is coming out.
i am keeping
up with work, listening to a lot of music, but enjoying this week of
being a complete and total loser.
80 miles outside of los angelesfirst off, thank you to everyone for your supportive emails. i never realized how many people cared and wanted to see headboard continue, even though there is currently no live line-up.
your support means a lot to me.
i took off a few days ago to hit so. cal, and just got home.
i've got quite a few ideas for headboard, and i intend to get on them soon. i am also
debating a few other ideas i have for projects i think i'd enjoy.
alone again, naturally
once again, headboard is glenn rubenstein.given the diversity that i have always strived to achieve with headboard, people are going to be coming together from different viewpoints, with different goals and dreams.
sometimes, different things take priority in a person's life, or they desire a different outlet.
and yes, sometimes,
as we've learned before, that doesn't include being in headboard.
