Welcome September!

Wow! I feel like I haven’t been here in ages!

We were so fortunate to take over a month off this year, we really needed it after the sad winter we had. Between the sun and hard work around the yard and on the house, we have come home to ourselves and are ready to get back to it!

It wasn’t all play though in truth, I was TA-ing for the summer and we also had an AMAZING Mema Tech-kno Camp in Chicago, where the teens produced a documentary on teen pregnancy. I am so proud of those  youth, it is amazing to see them come alive in that creative situation, behind, and in front of the cameras.

Although we had only one session over the summer, we spent a great deal of time working on the studio and the ‘booth’ is nearly complete. I spent the past weekend rearranging amps in the studio and giving the gear room a good clean up. It feels good to get passed that feeling that the construction will never end! There is indeed a light at the end of this tunnel and thank goodness maybe it came just in time, as we’re awaiting the green light on a rather large film project.

I hope you’ve been following along with these amazing artists who are doing some incredible work, including opening their own studios (Ranj Singh) and  touring almost non-stop (Jody Quine)! Also keep your eye on Billy the kid who has new music AND is going to be supporting Billy Bragg (I’m not even kidding!). Billy and I cut our hair this year for Locks Of Love as well, and I hope you’ll join us for our next cut if you have a dozen inches to share!

As always more news coming soon, we may be expecting a new addition to the family – come over to our Facebook pages (here and here) and Twitter for up to the minute updates!

We will also have news from Soulpancake, and some bookish things to report as well a few new games and apps.

 

Ok, it’s back to lectures for me – oh hai Harvard!
