Awesome things happened to me today. I am one happy camper.
First, I received the first midi files from the pianist for A Year with Frog and Toad, and I have nothing to worry about! They're awesome. He totally knows what he's doing on the keys. I just hope I get enough (or all) of them in time to record the drums and other instrumentalists. Tonight Matt and I recorded Joe on the guitar on those tracks and a couple of the snail's songs.
Second, some recording scheduling conflicts magically righted themselves, and all the other musicians look on track too. I'm actually starting to look forward to the process of putting all the music together, as opposed to dreading failure with every fiber of my being.
Perhaps most wonderfully of all ... remember the Adbusters competition I entered back in November? I won! I get a new pair of Unswooshers, the totally bitching evil-free shoes from the arch enemies of Nike.
Life is so great! I work myself half to death for the promise of days like this.
In other news, Moonlight's surgery was apparently a success, although she still hisses whenever Tripoli comes within a few feet. I have my fingers crossed that the behavioral problems will lessen now, though.
