So today I spent an amazing amount of time working on the CD. I worked on budget, I worked on sequence, I took songs off and put some on. I worked on exactly how stripped-down this CD could be. I started playing with the ideas for the CD. I figure that it's an important step in my creative life,or something like that, you know?
How did this all feel, farmboy?
I'm glad to have at least started this. It's astounding how much work it takes to make a CD -- and I'm not even at the stage where I'm making charts or lyric sheets. There's a fuckin' lot of work to do. And I'm motivated, believe me. I love making a CD. I have to be careful to not drag it out so much because I love it, I love the process. Which is a good thing.
It is a good thing, farmboy. It's something you love.
Yeah, that's true. I love music and I love songs.
I mainly just want the nerve to pull this thing off, you know? All these people who did the Kickstarter thing, they all have faith in me and they are encouraging to me. I want to do a good job for them.
From what I've seen, farmboy, you've got plenty of nerve when it involves something you believe in.
I better, man, that's all I know.
