I know you’re supposed to “get behind” your new album, play the songs relentlessly, tour, promote, etc. But I’m 60, I don’t like traveling and I don’t like marketing even more, so the most I do is post some videos, let my facebook friends know about it…and then I start working on the next one. So rather than get behind my albums, I get them behind me and move on. I do this mainly for myself. I like the process of writing, recording and sharing what I do…but mostly I like releasing a charge for myself…saying something musically, that makes me feel better for having said it. I guess I sing more like a bird than an ambitious musician. It is nice though anytime my music touches anyone else, especially if they let me know, so please feel free to contact me or post a comment on this blog.
*A heads up for next month: Wednesday, February 7th, 2018: “7th Annual Love Songs”
The only rules of this Hack Circle:
1. You’ve got to use your feet to keep the sack in the air and off the ground. No hands! (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
2. If you miss or otherwise screw up, you can’t say, “I’m Sorry.” (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
3. No serving to yourself. (10 voluntary pushups if you do)
4. No hotdogging. Meaning this is not about how many tricks you can do before the sack hits the ground, and it’s not about working obsessively on tricks. Tricks are fine but in general, we want to keep the hack going as a friendly group and keep everyone involved.
See you at Caldera rain or shine. The overpass provides shelter from the rain and once the circle gets going, you’ll be plenty warm regardless of the weather.
