I will be in with a hippie-dippie protest song. Actually more beatnik, daddy-O.

The recording is done, but if the past is any guide, I'll be tweaking it up until the deadline.

usually I come up with an idea early and spend all week working on it even after I grow to hate the initial idea (happens too often) . this time I decided to try a bunch of ideas first to try to find one I actually like. I have one now, but the problem is of course leaves me less time to do all the recording etc. and no Chumpy - I ain't saying I didn't spend much time on this! been trying to think of ideas all week. just have less time to actually record. kind of a trade-off I think of trying a bunch of ideas vs spending a lot of time working on one idea. also I have a lot of free time the next couple of days so I'll end up spending a lot of time on this thing. rock n roll sunshine.

In at 12:56! I think that's the closest I've cut it to the deadline. Ended up scrapping the thing I was trying and went back to the old thing but changed it a lot. Here's a thing. A long one. 2 minutes, 36 seconds!

BSS is in too. Ken was sick so listeners will have to suffer through my drumming and mixing.

Rats! We would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you kids! :P Seriously though, hope you feel better soon!
