There's no A/C in the office today and I'm dying.
There's also gruesome mousedeath out on the sidewalk in front.
It's so grisly. Something is already feeding on it, so it's actually like a puff of lint with a spindley tail sticking out of it. I almost wish I had my camera with me so I could share. I bet you're glad I don't.
I wonder who's going to clean it up?
Anyway, moving on to the less macabre....
Went into the studio again Saturday night. We worked on Roi's stuff some more. The whole thing is a comedy of errors. Not only were the original guitar tracks tuned only to each other, they are full of unintentional rhythm changes.
So, when the drum parts were added, hilarity ensued. It's not like we have a real drummer on hand. Or even drums. We have guitarists, playing drum samples, on a keyboard.
You can only imagine.
In between the kick and the cymbal tracks, Roi did this infernal high pitched wood block tapping thing...throughout the whole song.
I went up to him and started tapping my finger on the center of his forehead and asked if that was what he was going for. Because if so....he nailed it.
I wanted to kill something by the end of the solo.
Hopefully it can be fixed in the mix.
Or not, Roi seems to like it.
I'm so glad I'm a spectator for the most part. I made one attempt at some background vocals (on a Grateful Dead cover, of all things) that was eventually ditched. Harmony is NOT my specialty. Especially not in spur-of-the-moment "just get in there and sing" conditions.
I made them give me a copy of the second song so I can practice this week before I go in and waste everyone's time.
I'm still thinking about doing one of my originals, just for the hell of it.
I just have to tone down the girly angst and refine the thoughtful irony in the verses.

Whatever...I'd just prefer it didn't SUCK.
I could use a bass player, too.
Damn, it's hot.off topic | from inside the mind of krix at July 22, 2002 01:31 PM .
