Don't Take Your Feet Off of The Highway



Only 300 miles from home, my feet wave in endless admiration for the traffic in front of them on
Interstate Highway 66.
This is a layover that enables rest and I reviewed some guitar tracks as I mixed them into 'Roadside Blues'.

Recent Steps on the Road

At some close time after work, I like to get outside and walk a few miles.
A new camera that numbers four, serves to capture some of what I see.
New songs, different approaches, a few streaks of uncertainty; something will come along.

 I need a more dynamic guitar playing style.
This is possibly on-par with guitar picking.

Parking By The Pool

Into September the reminder of cooler days sound off with the sporadic crunch of stale leaves along the roadway.
A once soothing swimming pool is now observed only by the searing hot pavement along the side of the sun tantrum-ed cover to conceal any reminder of water.
It is a Saturday with subtle reminders of a change to come that will bring cold of many months duration.

On My Way

The climate in Virginia has proven to be more comfortable than I would have expected.
The nights are cooler as my job becomes more tolerable with cool air.
The photographs are of Broome and Tioga Counties, in upstate New York.
It's always better to get outside and walk a few miles.

 'Six Eyes is Three Less Eyes than Nine'
MPK
2014

I am only now starting to record anything.
It has been a slow period of construction with more to be done.
Looking back at 2012 into 2013, it was nice to have an album each month.
At this time, I expect to round something off this Fall.
I couldn't even guess what I will actually record.



A new camera on order should put a end to the 'artistic prints'.


 I can always use more throughput on the guitar.

That Was It

It is a busy week. As I sit in a chair here in Manassas,VA.,
I will soon be driving and delivering product.
On Monday, I released a EP; this the first release in two months.
A new computer system is in development with eight TB (terabyte) of disc space and Windows 8.1 will be used in support of  a Sony Movie editing program.
I am going to try to produce more audio and improve on the quality of the supportive video.

I would like to set up equipment in the center of this blacktop island and
play hard.


 
 'Roadside Garden (Single Edit)'
MPK
2014
 From the EP:
American Me (EP) (2014-08)


The EP was mostly recorded in 2014 but,
some of the 2012 blog video entries were used as well.
Much of the finalizing was done on other computers.


The future is a little rough.
Here and there, its better than before.
