Boy have I been slack of late. Too many things going on to be able to keep up and keep posting.
In general I have been driving up and down to Dublin a lot. Tomorrow is no exception, well, today at this stage, as I have to drive down and back up in the same day.
For those of you who don't know, Leitrim is in the North-West part of Ireland, and we're about a 2-3 hour drive from Dublin, depending on the time of day you go at. Traffic in Dublin during the day is appalling, and it can easily add an hour to your journey time.
I'm driving down tomorrow to collect a number of computer parts from a friend who is moving back to the states, Alabama to be precise, and I'll pick up my girlfriend. Gaia has her college exams next week and is going to spend the weekend up here trying to study.
I have a tonne of work to get through as well, so hopefully we can support each other in this regard!
My main concern at the moment is trying to compose 3 short pieces of music that I've been commissioned to write for a dance piece that is playing on the 16th and 17th of December. I am massively running out of time and have done fuck all for it. I really wish I hadn't taken this on, but I need anything to get me out of a rut of not writing music. I've written 2 tracks this year, which is painfully poor. Mostly this has been because of my work load and generally being in front of a computer most of the day – it doesn't enthuse you to stay in front of one for yet more hours working on music.
Anyway, general rant over. I'm going to sleep now. Tomorrow is a busy day.
