This post begins a new weekly segment here on Where Pianos Roam. It should mostly happen on Fridays, but may occasionally come out on Saturdays depending on my schedule. Along with "Early On a Sunday Morning" and "The Video of the Week", this marks the third regular instalment that you can expect to find here on WPR.
So now, on with the inaugural post of . . .
I spent a day in Huntsville, Alabama earlier this week for a much needed break from Nashville. I brought Oreo and Buttercup along for plenty of "contemplating along the water's edge"-type-of-stuff.
Here are some photos . . .
Overlooking some Alabama mountains . . .
Also this week, I've been hard at work on my website-revamp. I just added the new video page . Here's a screenshot . . .
I've also been reading a new book in my rare spare time. It's called "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, and it's quite good so far. Here's a hazy photo from my screwy little camera . . .
I also recently dusted off my Roland JD-800 Synthesizer/keyboard and been playing on it a good bit. It's going to make an appearance in some upcoming shows. Her name is Olive by the way. Finished a new song with her earlier this week as well . . .
Well, that's it for now. There'll be more photos next week!!!
More, infinitely so, to come . . .
Just a few more photos to document the week that was . . .
Skies over Nashville . . .
Last Sunday afternoon, my good friend (and album co-producer) Ben Wilson celebrated his birthday with his wife Kassie. I took O and B along for some good poolside fun . . .
I'm in Austin, ostensibly for SXSW, but in reality I've spent most of my time at my friend's house, or at Casa, plugging away at my YC demo. The deadline is this Sunday and there's a lot to be done before I'll feel confident submitting.
So that's why I haven't posted yet this week. I intended to post a video of the talk Jason and I gave, but my camera ran out of batteries early into the talk, so I have no video.
My brother, who I wrote about last year, has been in Afghanistan. He's a soldier in the army. Besides shooting with his gun, he's also been shooting with a camera he brought with him. He posts photos to Facebook on a regular basis, and some of those photos have been really fascinating to look at. With his permission, I've reposted some of them here for you to see:
