After my last post I fiddled around quite a bit, created another t-shirt design (which has since been approved. I of course still haven't put any designs up for sale, 'cause that would be, like, productive), and got to bed around 7:30am.

Even with the delay, I spent an amazing amount of time trying to fend off that 3am tuna melt. It happens every time, but it tastes so good...

'Round about 4:00pm, I got up, cleaned up, and started playing with recording settings on the rack. I even figured out a problem I'd had when recording cekyr0. Then I actually cleaned up the place a little bit.

OK, I took out the garbage. Given how much I let it accumulate, that's somewhat of an accomplishment. It's perhaps telling how much of a spiderweb was built over the garbage bags...

Around 7:40pm, my visitor made it here, and we started our little recording project.

So far, it looks like four takes is the most anyone manages before deciding the result is good enough.

Four takes of not, it took about an hour - it was 8:40pm by the time we decided what we had was good enough, and zipped out for some dinner at Chili's.

Then I got home, and both surfed and fiddled with sound for a few hours. I was happy with the track by about 11:00pm. It's amazing how long it takes - but then, I don't do this that often.

And I'll be able to say who it was - and maybe even post a link to the track - post-solstice celebrations.

I got to bed at the unheard-of hour of 1:00am, because I needed to be up and dressed by around nowish - which I am - to go pick up turn2nz and Sabrina at the airport. They're out visiting for the week, and I'm going to get to see them!

I'm pretty excited - I haven't seen them since I visited them in NZ! And that was over a year ago!
