2. Speaking of Papa Bear O'Reilly, I thought I'd pass this link along - if you've been following the Ben Ownby/Shawn Hornbeck kidnapping (which I haven't), you might not know that, according to Bill, it's the kid's fault.
3. Downloaded the forthcoming Apostle of Hustle album last night, which I listened to this morning; pretty good. Probably a better album than their previous, Folkloric Feel, although FF's highs ("Energy of Death" and "Kings and Queens") are two of my favorite songs of all-time, and nothing on this new album comes anywhere NEAR those two.
4. Supposed to have drinks with my brother tonight, but my stomach's been in a bad way; I'd hate to cancel on him, I haven't seen him since Xmas and he just got back from 2 weeks in Panama and Costa Rica. I guess I'll see how the afternoon progresses.
5. I think I'm starting to get somewhere with the song idea I mentioned yesterday; I'm at the point now where I think I can start putting things down on tape. I wish I were better at ProTools in terms of being able to easily cut and paste things, which is sorta how I think this recording is going to have to come together; well, I guess this'll be a trial by fire.
