Ho Hum

I've been busy, folks. All of the songs for the Ideal Home Music Library are finished, and my attention has turned to other projects while I twiddle my thumbs waiting for Jenny Conlee to come back from tour. The strings and horns for the next Parks & Recreation album are taking up most of my time. I've been up late every night working them out and reworking them. It's been fun, but crazy. The most time consuming venture was the "overture" that's going to appear at the beginning of a song called Don't Get Caught Up In Your Dreams. Right now it's quite long. It's hard to describe how I went about writing it without getting too technical.

The other half of my time has been consumed by the liner notes for the Ideal Home Music Library, Vol. 2. As of today, I have no idea if the record is even going to come out, but that's another story. I cling very hard, however, to the possibility that it will, so I keep writing. Writing is hard. Real writing is really hard. I've been editing and re-editing, bent over my Thesaurus and The Elements of Style. Lyrics are so much easier than prose. Anyway, I wish I could tell you more. More later.
