Served Chilled

My 16-year-old nephew Timothy came up from the hinterlands of East Texas late yesterday afternoon to spend the night before heading to a party this evening. We sat around most of the evening talking before eating pizza at Vitto in Oak Cliff's Bishop Arts District. Afterwards we walked around, then settled at Nodding Dog for tea and live music.

After an even lazier morning around the apartment, we went to Torrefazione for coffee and muffins, Virgin Megastore for music (and virgins ... but alas, none were to be had!), and White Rock Lake for a walk.

Since he left, I've been working/reworking a song I entered in a contest several months ago. The original version used copyrighted material from the contest sponsors, and since I didn't win (BOO!), I've been rewriting/recreating/reworking/replacing that material with my own. It's kind of fun hearing this newer, even more original version of something I finished back then. The title is "Rusted City (History is A...)," and I'm planning for it to end my next CD: an EP entitled Harm, which will also include the following soon-to-be club hits: "Harm," "Satisfied," "The Dream Beyond," & "False Starts." The tracks will be mastered in early June and probably released around July or August. Stay tuned here for updated information as it becomes available.

Finally, I'd like to wish my 12-year-old niece Felisha a very wonderful & happy birthday.
