Hey internets! Howya doin’? It’s been a while. It’s been a wild month of being busy and procrastinating on things I’ve wanted to get done.
- Finishing an Android app I’ve been developing.
- Writing/finishing songs I’ve started.
- Creating a Binary Heart t-shirt design.
- Writing more in this blog.
- Helping build a website for a great friend.
- Playing shows
- Working odd jobs to make ends meet.
When we were on tour with The Sidekicks in August, I finally downloaded, American War, Matt Scheuermann’s other band. I must’ve listened to it at least 4 times that same day. (You can download it here.) Cacthy hooks, great lyrics, and of course, Matt’s angelic voice. I feel like no matter what I write about this album, I cannot do it the justice it deserves. Even though it came out 2009 (yes ….I know, I’m behind on great music) this will be in my most listened albums of 2011 list. Pending I don’t procrastinate on writing that list til 2012.
Bomb recently played Fest 10, in Gainesville, and what a weekend that was!! There was so many awesome bands that played, so many friends I don’t get to see too often, and way too drinks on that Friday night (thank you Andy for the constant flow of PBR tall boys). On the way back up from Fest, we played a show in Atlanta with some great buddies as well. But for me, the highlight of that day was seeing my brother, Gary, and his awesome wife, Sindi, for a night.
So, Saturday night, I played my first solo acoustic show at the Parkside Pub in Levittown. I had a wonderful time and couldn’t be more thankful to have so many close friends to witness me be awkwardly nervous on stage. I have a video from the show that I will post tomorrow on the Binary Heart social media trifecta (tumblr/facebook/twitter).
I have another solo show coming up on Dec. 10th in Milford CT with George and Dave (formerly of High School football Heroes), Vic Ruggiero, and Ron and Mike (formerly of Spring Heeled Jack). It’s an all acoustic show, and I’m looking forward to playing another show. I’ll have more details posted on the trifecta soon.
I recently read the Steve Job biography (which I actually just finished reading less than an hour ago), and I have to say, WOW, did he act like a brat sometimes. I give him credit, he really had a passion for the things he believed in, and didn’t care what anyone thought about him. He was a man who knew what he liked and what he wanted, regardless of what he did or said to people to get his way. I thought the book was amazing written, and would recommend it. I’m a big Apple fan, and I hope they can continue to be as awesome as Steve had envisioned it to be.
