The Remix Project (or, 350 and rollin'!)

Well, this is a first.

Someone who I don't know contacted me via Myspace and told me that they found one of my songs (27) on a music download site and remixed it. I am flattered. And I like the remix.

You can listen to it here. It's the track called "I'm sorry." It was recommended to me to listen to it in headphones because it hasn't been mixed yet.

Anyway. That's kinda weird and cool and it feels strange.

I went out tonight after work with folks from work to commemorate Adrienne's last day at the B&N. It was a good time. So now that I'm home I'm continuing the party with a beer and a baguette.

The Alaska trip has been on my brain ever since we've been back. People have asked if I want to move to Alaska now that I've visited, and the honest answer is no, I don't really feel like it's the place for the J-Dog and I to move. Alaska seems to be a place for people who know that they're meant to be there. And I thought it was gorgeous and peaceful and fun, but I don't think I'm meant to be there. But damn, it was good to see Seanyboy. There's something musical that clicks between he and I that makes both of us do better work than we do individually, I think. I feel like if we had a week to hang out with nothing else to do, we could write a hundred good songs. So we decided that the next visit we have will be a writing visit rather than a recording visit.

I've been spending my free time mixing the songs that Sean and I worked on. It's been going pretty well. I think that everything we worked on is really solid, and it's just a matter of making it sound as good as it possibly can. Things are starting to shape up...

Tomorrow the J-Dog and I get to spend all day together, which should be pretty awesome. We started some Spring cleaning today (gathering together all the old clothes we don't wear) and I hope to continue tomorrow, getting rid of more shit we don't use.

The Jeanners and I bought some dice.
