Funny how I’m making a post about the new year on the last day of January… oh well, better late than never I guess. 2012 went pretty well, I recorded a few cool bands, got far better as a producer, played shows, drove a ton, and ate a lot of interesting new food.
Earlier this month, my band As Judgement Day Approaches played its final show. It was a bittersweet feeling indeed, as AJDA has been a big part of my life for almost three years. That’s longer than most relationships nowadays! The last show was definitely one of our best, we certainly ended on a good note. Moving onto the next chapter of my life, I joined another band called With Shallow Views. The dudes in that band have been good friends of mine for a while now (I’ve actually known the guitarist longer than I’ve known most people), and I had fun recording them for their upcoming EP, so I joined, as a guitarist and backing vocalist. It’ll certainly be fun to play a different, less heavy style of music. Plus I get to play guitar in a band, I’ve wanted to do that for the longest time. My first show with them is in March, needless to say I’m excited!
2013 is looking pretty good so far, I have several bands lined up for recording, even after I raised my rates considerably. I also finished a snazzy new website for Drop B Recordings, “check it out”:http://dropbrecordings.com! I was surprised how I still hadn’t forgotten web design even after not doing much of it for two years.
I also just got a call back this morning from a movie theater that I interviewed at a week ago, going in for a second interview on Saturday. Pretty stoked about that, keeping my fingers crossed, I hope I get the job! Maybe then I can buy myself a snazzy new Galaxy SIII, my G2 is showing its age pretty hard right now; the camera lens is so scratched up that pictures end up being really blurry. And the flash died a few months ago, which is a pretty big bummer considering how much I always need it for the light.
My girlfriend and I are still happily together, and our three-year anniversary is in about three weeks. As a whole, I’m pretty happy. Sure, little issues might pop up here and there, but I can’t let that bother me too much.
PS: Did anybody get the song reference in the title of the post? ADTR <3
