Welp tried starting off the year on something sorta positive which was of course the 20th Anniversary of the release of my original Funhouse Recordings. For starters all I could figure to do was share a few old video clips and set up a sale in the shop. Had designs on working up some other something special but before I could build up any creative momentum I had to say goodbye to my last best dog buddy, Wendell.
I mean good goddamn. In less then six months I lost three of my closest buddies. In addition to Wendell there was Butters, who was Wendell's dog brother from a different mother and Sparky, their cat brother. And this is on top of all the stoopid Covid crap and personal health issues not related to Covid, that I've experienced.
In a nutshell a pretty shitty damn year.
But hey there's this anniversary which is something and yeah like really bad fucking hangover all this will pass and at some point maybe I'll even find another dog buddy to hang out with take for walks and....excuse me a moment...uhm sigh, yeah missing those guys big time. Sorry.
So yeah again there's this Anniversary thing and who knows maybe I'll work up some video series where in I play each song from the album, I don't know. It's just been too hard and yeah but at least I have been able to mess around some developing my other side hustles.
Lady friend gave me a pile of old wooden ABC blocks and I started turning them into frames. And then again on account of this stoopid Covid crap, yet another pivot this year is required for ClydeFEST - the Children's Art & Learning Festival I help produce. Getting ready soon as I finish this update, to work on revamping an image that I created for last years festival. Idea for the pivot this year will have us parsing out one of the more popular activities at ClydeFEST and taking it on the road. Reimagining it socially distanced with all the proper protocal "In The Wild" as it were.
Yup so hardly a minute or the mind, to pick up a guitar but I'm keeping busy and trying to stay out of trouble while continuing to heal and get healthy and mourn the loss of my buddies.
Right so that's about it for this update uh and oh say if you're inclined and wanting to help celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Funhouse Recordings with me I've created some new merch featuring the original Watertower triptych design I illustrated for the album art. If you pop on over to the Breadfoot Store and you can score yourself a Special 20% Anniversary Discount on the Original Holden Release CD, a mug and a classic 3/4 sleeve baseball T featuring the album art.
Cheers and thanks!
Ah there's my boys. Wendell & Butters. Dog brothers from a different mother. Weren't hardly nothing they wouldn't do for carrot.
One of the first frames I worked up with them wooden ABC blocks. Finding the time and head space to muse and be creative musically has been tough as of late but I can work on stuff like this in little bites and yeah hoping maybe it can turn into a good side hustle for times in between. And yes that is a little Christmas morning me. Kinda wonder what ever happened to the firetruck. The slippers? Not so much.
This is the image I designed for ClydeFEST. 2020 would have seen us celebrating our 18th annual but stoopid Covid and so again this year we'll be pivoting. Gonna rework the image and add "In The Wild" in there somewhere. Funny times these are.
Available in the Breadfoot Store the Holden Records release of The Funhouse Recordings including a live version of 'A Hard Day In Manhattan' recorded in London, England, a cool as hell mug and a 3/4 sleeve baseball style T-shirt both featuring my Watertower triptyph pen & ink design.
