never underestimate the power of a horn you can’t actually play.

i’d make a “horny” joke with the title there, but even i would wince at that.

in all seriousness, it’s kind of funny (serious and funny? what?) — not so long ago, i was posting only once every week or two, but my posts were pretty gargantuan. now i’m posting every few days, and not saying much at all. it comes in waves, i tell you. waves lapping at the shore of love. one thing’s for sure…word spreads fast. people in offices the world over are already talking about the new album that’s on the way. see for yourself:

i’m having way too much fun making ridiculous little cartoons over at xtranormal. as far as text-to-speech goes, once you get the hang of it there’s a surprising absence of glitchy crap. sometimes whole sentences come out sounding like real people speaking.

i’ve got 28 songs recorded for the album in various stages of completion, and another 8 or 9 i want to record. then it’ll be time to shave it down a bit and figure out what exactly is album material, and what isn’t. should be interesting. it really could become another double-cd pretty easily, but i’m not sure i want to go there again so soon. maybe a full-to-bursting single cd is enough.

as i suspected, getting it out there before december is gone would be pretty difficult. i don’t want to rush it. a january release looks pretty solid. i imagine we’ll be seeing more of those two animated johnny west fans as the release date draws near.
