The trend of getting sick just as I’m about to finish a thing continues. I’m not sure how many years it’s been going on for now, but I know it’s been a lot of years, and a lot of things.
This STEW album is finished, for all intents and purposes. It’s been sequenced. It has an album page on ye olde Sidebar of Blog. It has artwork and a layout and all the things it needs to look presentable. A few mixes need a bit of last-minute tweaking, and one vocal part needs a bit of touching up, but that’s it.
I was going to tie up the loose ends in the first half of this week and have the CDs assembled and ready for public consumption by Friday at the latest. I got a good start on the weekend. Then I got a cold.
When I get a cold, it’s a SUPER MEGA COLD. Only the most frustrating cold will do. None of those wimpy “gone in a few days” colds. And nothing gets done until the super mega cold is gone, unless there’s a song that needs some froggy sub-Leonard Cohen baritone singing-and-coughing (there never is, except for those times when the voice won’t naturally go to the froggy place).
So it’s going to have to wait another week or two. But as proof that my ass was fully in gear before the cold came along to derail it, here’s a proof I had made to get an idea of what the final product would look like (final inserts/booklets should be ready on thursday).
At least now I have an excuse to catch up on some reading I’ve been meaning to do. So that’s something.
