I mentioned in my last post that the Blue Tattoo site is up and running, but I didn’t really dwell on it. It’s actually a pretty big step. These days, to be a band and get a gig, you need a website. Most places don’t want press-kits anymore, they want a web address.
So, we’re online. I play guitar and sing half the stuff (my brother sings the other half). If you’ve ever wondered what we sound like, you’ve got your chance. Check out the “Media” link and go to “Music Downloads” to hear the whole of our four-song demo. They’re MP3s, so it’s not excellent, CD-quality…but it’s clear enough that probably 99% of the people that will download it won’t care.
The site’s just kind of “up” right now. I had to put something out there so the other guys could tell me what to do with it. Right now, it’s a little plain-Jane, but I’m hoping to add a bunch of stuff soon. Anyway…check it out. It’s mostly just kind of cool to have my band (finally) online. 🙂 Here’s hoping we don’t suck!
Here’s a taste, in case you don’t browse over: \”I Go\” by Blue Tattoo
So I’ve been working my butt off on one of several different projects all week. I’m pretty much out of it, and by like 5:00 every day I’ve been so exhausted I’ve been dizzy. It sucks. I’ve been putting little diversions into my days, like changing over to the new blog and updating the Blue Tattoo website (www.bluetattoonews.com, btw), just to keep the synapses in my brain firing. It’s currently 3:33, and I’m probably not getting to bed until like 5:00.
…but on the plus side, at least I’ve been simultaneously getting caught up on a LOT of TV. Particularly been enjoying the third season of “How I Met Your Mother” over the past couple of days. One of my favorite shows. Also been watching a ton of the Three Stooges. Which actually just makes me sleepier, because they were on late on Saturdays when I was a kid (I want to say around midnight) and my parents would let me stay up to watch every week…but most weeks I didn’t make it, because midnight’s late for a kid.
At least I’ve got this weekend off from gigs…but, on the other hand, I’ve got to go to a meeting on Saturday morning at nine-freaking-thirty. Worst part is that I actually volunteered to be on the committee. So…I’m kind of an idiot. Plan is to not shower, show up, say nothing, contribute nothing, and leave within an hour, then go back to bed until like 5:00 pm. The thing is, I kind of like the committee and I like the guy who runs it (we’re friends), so it’s not all bad…I just hate the entire world before 11:00 rolls around. It’s never personal…
…anyway…I’m going to go eat some pizza now… I eat a lot when I’m up late.
Summary of the points in this post: None.
PS- I like this blog design, but the only real minus is that I have to hit enter twice between paragraphs to make it look like it’s not just one big block of text…but now it looks like this, which looks like there’s too MUCH space…so I’m trying to figure out a way to adjust that. Does either one bother anybody? Preference?
