Plans for the Future

Plans… well more like “Hopes for the Future”. Haha. Well… on a positive note we’re basically done writing the new album, and now it’s just a matter of getting out there and hitting the music scene again. I think Jay and I are going to pick up some guitars and start performing acoustic live sets around Edmonton; it would be a good start to a slow and shaky year. From traveling to multiple cities in North America to getting in car accidents and living the mundane life of the day job worker, this has definitely been a slow year for LI.

This year there has been far too many days that feel like we should just say fuck it all and go teach English overseas. Haha. You ever feel like that? Where you just wanna say piss on it all and go do something else? Cause it can be hard at times to stay motivated and committed to something that doesn’t have a lot of “perks” along the way… but I guess with music, it boils down to the fact that none of the “perks” really matters. The music is enjoyment in itself. I personally think I would be miserable without a guitar and a means to share my creativity… Yup.

So where does this leave us? Well hopefully were going to be performing some where some time soon. Of which I will obviously be posting online. I wish I had more definitive information, but that’s all I got. One cool thing that is happening (kinda unrelated) is the fact that we’re going to go see Dream Theater in Calgary this weekend coming up. They are an awesome band that I have been dying to see play live for years! Not a huge fan of the “Vocal Style” but with musicians as good as the guys in Dream Theater you can see past the 80’s metal singer.

On a side note, I am going to start blogging on a semi-daily basis. It won’t always be about the band or even music for that matter, but it will be insightful and entertaining…. maybe. Haha. Keep in touch and feel free to email me anytime.
