Long time no post

Just figured I give a quick update since it's been so long since I've posted.

Keith and I have taken a sort of involuntary hiatus; we haven't practiced since March. Between Keith's wife getting pregnant, my grandmother getting sick and subsequently passing away, and my getting certified to teach, there just hasn't been time. Priorities.

Not sure where we'll go from here; I don't anticipate Keith having an abundance of free time once his bambino (Levi if boy, Gwyneth if girl) arrives, and starting my teaching career is much more important to me than music.

One thing I have done recently is start trying to organize all the songs I've written, decide which ones I want to flush out and which ones get left behind in case I ever finally put together a solo acoustic setlist. I know I've mentioned this before, but I've written over 50 songs. There's probably only 4 or 5 that I'm proud enough of to want to play in front of people, so I may start trying to write some new songs just for me.

I'm bummed that I haven't progressed further with the expensive recording gear I bought, but it's not going anywhere.

I've also been playing the piano quite a bit. I've gotten to the point now that I can play any song I know on guitar on the piano, so it's been fun banging out piano versions of Old 97's songs when I come home drunk.

Ok, hope this finds you well. Much Love!!!

I disapprove of these child names.

Levi: trendy; biblical. No basis in the lives of parents.

Gwyneth: celebrity tie-in.

I like 'em. My one knock is that Levi is swelling in popularity.

I don't think it's fair to slam Gwyneth based on Paltrow; she's really not that big right now. Plus, I'm pretty sure that wasn't one of their main influences.

So, anything biblical sucks? That eliminates a lot.

Oh, they're not that bad. At least they're spelled correctly (or you did). I'm just living up to being the name curmudgeon. But they wouldn't know of the name Gwyneth if Paltrow didn't exist.
