Life in Constant Transition

This summer I have been to Devon, Spruce Grove, Viking, Cold Lake, Fort Mac, Calgary, Jasper, Kamloops, Parksville, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Delta, and Victoria; and I’m sure I missed a few others that I can’t remember right now. I put roughly 25,000km on the Focus I drive in less than 4 months… I feel like a god damn travelling sales men… except I get to go to those places and have a giant party each time. I guess that’s just my life as a DJ, well a wedding/corporate DJ, I don’t consider myself a real DJ, you know, I don’t have a cool name like DJ Lethal or anything (haha), I just assist people in having a great time.

It was kinda nice to be out of town lots this summer, it helped keep me busy, and I made good money. Plus when you’re on the road for hours on end all alone, you certainly get a lot of time for thinking, contemplating and devising new ways to grow as a person; the universe knows I’ve been doing a lot of that this summer. All in all my time over the last 4 months has been enlightening and incredible – a cornucopia of emotions, I’ve met and reconnected with some of the most wonderful people and have had some huge life changing experiences… to top it off, it doesn’t look like the momentum is going to run out…

Here’s the rundown: The band has a sweet gig at the Starlite Room in Edmonton this Friday the 19th of September, then we’re gonna be working at Beta Sound with Kevin Hoskin doing Pre-Production for the next record/EP (which we’re gonna have mixed by Bill Kennedy), after that I’m going to Cleveland for a conference in October, then by the time I get back we should be ready to go back into the studio to start laying down tracks for the record. All the while working full time and DJing the occasional weekend. The list just keeps going…

Haha, I just thought of more, cause during all that time we also have to do the design work for the new album, redesign the website and myspace, get a proper photoshoot done, and play any gigs worth playing… although we will be taking some time off when were in the studio 🙂 Holy crap my life is gonna be busy. Needless to say, it’s a good thing I like to be doing things all the time and that I enjoy it, otherwise I would probably go crazy.

So in closing, to everyone that I had the pleasure of spending time with this summer (whether you read my blog or not 😛 ), Thank You for turning what could’ve been one of the most melancholy summers of my life into one of the most amazing. You guys are awesome and I don’t know where I would be without you all, so again Thank You, Thank You, Thank You (That includes you too Kels, you will be missed). I hope that you can all make it out to one of our shows some time soon, even if you do live in another city… then again maybe we’ll just have to come to you!

Make good choices 😉
