Happy Holidays!!!
How are you, my dear friends...as I write this, it is freezing outside here in Chicago, and I don't have any of my Christmas shopping done (this reminds me of every Christmas!)...i hope that wherever you are, you are with loved ones, and are warm, happy, and motivated for the coming year...there are so many challenges afoot right now (culturally, spiritually, energetically, and most of all keeping one's integrity intact) that it is hard to remember what a great gift that life is, with a tremendous set of opportunities at hand every single day...at hand, at foot, at mind (pantanjali, I believe/ancient avatar)...i know I have said many times the album is done, the album is almost done, blah blah but since all that I have gone back into the studio and recorded a few more songs, which I think make the album stronger and more cohesive and yes, push a little harder, so I think we are on schedule for a spring release...don't forget that famed smashing pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin's first album is coming out mid-January, so start looking for it, or check Jimmy's website at Jimmychamberlin.com for more info...Jimmy is also doing a few shows in los angeles, new york, and chicago, so try to check that out...he has put together a killer band that I think is going to be a must see live act...
Besides all that, life is good, I have no complaints, only praise...praise for all the good friends who have guided me compassionately thru this year, holding my hand when it needed to be held and kicking my fragile psyche when it needed a good, swift kick...i feel that this year has very much been about moving out of old patterns and habits into new potentials that in my eyes will yield a deeper level of work and a more involved, passionate life...that is a crude way of saying I feel strong and motivated and I'm ready to get back into the mix...the only caveat being that I am not playing by anyone else's rules but my own...you can have your behind the scenes and your stripping away the last ounces of blood all you want, I a'int having that no more...i am proud to say I am independent, and getting more so everyday...and I really, really appreciate the good business relationships I do have, with those few people out there who really care about music...they know who they are, and I'm sure they don't read this website! So again, dear friends, I send you love, and the blessings of 1,000 angels...
Yours, bc
