I am full of excuses. I caught a cold and haven't been able to sing, and then I sliced my index finger open on my left hand, so no guitar until it heals (it's almost there!). I will almost assuredly be late. Many apologies to [coveree name redacted].

I turned down two things this week so I could get done. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.
If I had a dollar for every one of my songs j$ has called a 90s pastiche, I'd have $1 for every song I've written.

I might be a hair late too. I also blame 2 weeks of a cold and being unable to sing. Yes, MG, I'm ashamed of myself.

Should get it in by Sunday evening.

My excuse is I still have no idea which songs are eligible for my I'm-not-even-sure-if-the-assignment-was-official assignment.

Last night, I had a brief opportunity to work on the song. Had the house to myself. It looked like it was gonna be perfect. Until I went into the office, where I do all my recordings,...

And it seems that the wedding has thrown up all over the room.

I'm going to be late, almost certainly. Only by a day or two, but late. Mainly 'cos I've stupidly left all the finished music tracks on my work computer - unless someone kind wanted to extend the deadline 'til *next* weekend ...

Oh cool, you got me? :P

The Psychotics will be in on time. But BLT will be a bit late, like sometime on Monday unfortunately. I can't record vocals and finish it until tomorrow (Sunday) due to work and finishing the BatP song. But it will get finished. ;)

Given the extension and the fact that I can't get the external drive I recorded onto to show up on my desktop computer, I'm not going to be done tonight after all. But I should easily be done by the new deadline.

I'm like 95% good on my mixes, and will use this extension to get closer to 96%.
