Seawolves rugby season (well, pre-season) begins on Thursday... and there's snow on the ground in Seattle. Should just be the usual wet and shitty in Seattle by Thursday, but we will have the added benefit of wet, shitty, and cold.... for a NIGHT game.
Hmmm... I wonder how many layers can a human conceivably wear and still survive? (Apparently the number is 227 t-shirts.)
Band Collaboration In other news, when I was in Budapest I was a part of a group of about 20 or so musicians who all played together in various bands for about 10 years. Those people all dispersed to the wind more than a decade ago, but 8 of us recently reconnected via email.
We are spread around - UK, EU, all parts of the USA, Sweden, Australia, etc. - but we all have some sort of musical software (usually GarageBand or Logic) and a GoogleDrive.
So we have started writing new music!
One guy uploads their part - say the guitar part - and each of us write a corresponding part for it: guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals, etc. We upload all of the separate parts to the GoogleDrive, and then each of us mix the bits together in our own unique way, or ask others to write a section or part that is heavier, or softer, or whatever. There are multiple guitarists, bassists, and singers, so there are always interesting different interpretations, depending on who wrote the part.
So we are winding up with 2 or 3 great versions of individual songs that have no empirical "single final version"!
The creative juices are flowing, and we are having a lot of fun. Hopefully I'll have something to share with Hubski soon...
