Harry Potter and the Nine Week Music Challenge

So, I haven't fallen off track with the Music Blog Challenge ... well, kinda.  I've been keeping up with reading the weekly chapters and doing "some" of it, but I'm a bit behind in some of the Action Lists.  There's just SOOO much to do!  But even if I can't accomplish it all, I am making progress.  I love the 5 daily tasks thing.  I'm not always successful, but I feel great when I am! 

So, the day of the week I have time to actually do stuff is Sunday.  Ironically, that's the day I get the least done.  It's almost like I need it to recover.  I always get more done when I'm busy.  I wish I could turn that switch on whenever I need it.  I need a trigger!  Well, next Sunday at least I'll be back in the studio working on a new "Junkyard" release.

So, I'm planning my CD Release Party, aiming for a February date in San Francisco.  I'm checking out this cool spot called the "Mezzanine" tomorrow night.  They're hosting the RootMusic Launch Party and I should be able to network and meet some really awesome people.  I'm excited.  If you're in SF and want to go, hit me up! 

I thinking I'm going to have to repeat this 9 Week Challenge just to really absorb and soak it all in.  I need to find out if  there are any really successfuly indie artists out there who ALSO have very demanding (and fulfilling) full time jobs simultaneously.  Maybe I'm just expecting too much of myself.

On a completely unrelated note:  I've now seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I two times now.  I could write an entire essay on my thoughts, but suffice it to say, I thought it was AMAZING!!  I've seen it twice and I'll probably see it again.  Can't believe this saga is almost over.  I was thinking about it the other day and this story, these books, this world and these characters have been a part of my life for a DECADE.   That's pretty awesome.  It's funny how art ... whether it's visual, movies, and especially music, help to define so many of the moments of our lives.  I hope something that I create can reflect a moment in others lives someday.  Then you know you've really done something special.

Anyhoo, so much to do, so little time to do it in ....
