TOO BUSY TO BLOG!

My great friend David reminded me that I had not blogged for almost three weeks this evening. So this is for him, although he does know some of the things I'm about these days.

Ideally I would be blogging and twittering like Phillip (Schoefield) and co and building up a community so that when I bring music out there will be millions of you ready and waiting to wiz to iTunes and buy and enjoy it... However. With 4 followers... I am just not getting my act in gear for this, or maybe there is nothing of interest to say!

Concentrating on creating something worthwhile first is the plan, otherwise all is just hot air...

But my I seem busy right now...Writing has been increasing, last week articles for The FT, my iSkate column, Portunis Magazine and I wrote a Country Song inspired by the Crazy Heart movie (I love Jeff Bridges) this weekend.

Oh yes and I created and built a website last Wednesday for my friend Bruce between 4pm and 2am see www.vikingice.co.uk - needs some tidying in proof stage but I was quite chuffed. iWeb is cool. I was reminded of how I love the possibility of the internet. Bruce sponsors my ice floor so it's the least I could do....

Friday Show was a hoot - I was so tired that I was trying to be alert! Watched it back and I think I looked like a poodle on speed... Emma looked at me as though I was on something - I wasn't ... might have been better if I'd had an expresso.... Anyway some people thought all was OK...

This week - This Morning on Wednesday - will be great to be on that show and Pause for Thought recording for Sarah Kennedy after that... Yes I am pausing for thought on what to say for that? A poem methinks....

And I'm in my studio and finding updates to software - Logic 9.1 - sabotages plug ins and hardware doesn't work as it should and no one quite knows what to do about it just yet.... Ahh the joys of technology at the cutting edge. Stress and time eaten getting you no where. There will be a time when, as the study books I work from promise, "The Technology enables creativity" that will be heaven. I did have some breakthroughs midi programming and drum programme design being one of these that opened up - great fun...

I also put together a small jazz set last week and Christiane said "That's amazing" the Oasys provides wonderful quality in its sounds and is starting to integrate to Logic... a taste of what's possible.. along with Ableton Live starting to fly working from my APC controller which is awesome.

So - on track and on plan - just takes effort and time. Tomorrow evening a relaxing dinner in a London hotel - that will be nice... Pity the Savoy is still shut.

Well that's it David I have blogged... :)

Love
