Last Night

OK, first off-
Great Game. Great Season. STELLAR performance by Dominick Hasek.
I had to listen to the last 5 minutes of the game on the radio while I was driving to pick up Roi. I was screaming and shouting and got more than a few odd looks at the red lights.
Go check out goaliegirl's blog for a great picture of the champs, and be sure to read her "Night Before Playoffs" ode.
Also, "the dude" has thoughts about last nights game. I think the post speaks for itself. He makes me wish I really was twelve again....

OK...if you're dying to know what happened at the studio last night, well...not much. We actually never got around to working on the song that I helped write. There was a lot of work to do on tracks from last week.
Here's the deal. Keefe, the other guitarist, moved last weekend so they made a rush on getting his guitar parts down before he blew town.

RULE #1: When recording, be sure and tune to A TUNER! Not to each other on that particular day, because....yaknowwhat? It's an extreme pain in the ass for people coming in later to put down accompanying tracks.

Much time was wasted due to that.

Another example of "Sid! you guys are just wonking off!" is when Roi decided that one of the songs needed clapping as a rhythm track. And even though any 19 dollar Casio synth has a clap track, we got in there and made our palms red for 3 takes, only to decide that it just didn't work. Oy.

All in all, I'm glad I didn't have to do the song last night. It was swell when we wrote it ten years ago, but it's gotten...well...lame. After playing it about 40 times in the last 3 days, I came to the conclusion that it needs something. I'm not sure what, but I do know I'm not going to waste time on singing it as it is.
Roi can do it if he really wants to.
Now that I have this resource, I might start working on writing some new stuff.
Of course I've been complicating writing a Keanu song of some sort.
How cheesy, eh?

I think what you're doing with music is awesome! I only wish I had the balls to do the same. What kind of music do you play? I think a Keanu Tribute would be quite proper and fitting...I mean he's good material!

Hmmm, kind of like Lisa Loeb-if she totally sucked, mixed with Cheryl Crow with her arm in a cast.

I bet the song is terrific! You're just to close to know it. And a Keanu song! Not cheesy, o so tasty!

Hey krix, I concede that the Redwings kicked ass, and were most deserving of the Cup. However, I don't quite agree with The Dude's assessment of the 'Canes...

Yeah, but The Dude's twelve, ya gotta love the enthusiasm.
