Is There Anybody Out There?

Pink Floyd would like to know if you're still following the progress of What To Keep & Let Go. haha How COULD you really when there hasn't been much to update!

My bad..

So sorry for all the lack of updates and things....The only piece of news I have to share is that I was able to get all the songs from Dave and have been listening to them a lot to really figure out what to do with each. To the best of my knowledge, Dave has been working on the list I gave him and this week is supposed to be a pretty big production week. All I can say is from hearing the record from start to finish is that I am pretty excited :) I think my favorites are going to end up being City Lights, In The End and Electric Candle. I am looking forward to hearing the finals!!

More to come soon...I am hoping I don't have to report any news of a possible delay in the project.....:/

A Preview Of What To Keep & Let Go

YES!! I'm so excited. Sometime last week I requested that Dave send me every song where it stands at this point in production so I can hear the whole thing through. And why do I want to do this? Anyone? Well simple! That way I can figure out the flow between songs and also what is left to do on each song. It's been quite a while since I've heard the songs in their studio versions and a refresher will be quite nice. Dave has assured me he will have the songs for me by tomorrow. From there, I will take the next week to pick through each song, take necessary, detailed notes and supply Dave with a thorough to-do list for us to finish up the tunes. It will be great to hear where we are at as four months definitely blurs the vision a bit.

I think this will be a good test to see how happy I am with the songs as a break in hearing them was probably a good idea. I'll keep you posted on how things are lookin'.

Mailing list coming soon...

The Ebb & Flow of What To Keep & Let Go

I apologize again for the lack of posts this summer, especially to those who may miss more video or pictures. It's been a lot of work keeping up with the production from afar but Dave and I are confident to have this project all wrapped up on time. Again, if it's not truly how I want it by then, I fear another delay but at the same time I am determined to not allow that to happen.

If you look at the number of posts per month recently in comparison to the beginning of the production, the difference is quite astounding. I don't want you to think that I have gotten lazy (maybe in some cases, I have haha) but the reason for the drop in updates comes primarily from the fact that MOST of the work is already done. I look at it like we're in the eye of the hurricane, sitting serenely amidst everything going on around the project and just waiting for it to start up again. In the next coming weeks, I anticipate a lot more activity as I have requested from Dave the entire album to be roughly mixed down from start to finish in order for me to hear where we need to go at this point. After a thorough review and dissection of the record, we can move forward with the finishing touches. Along the way, I will be revealing some goodies that pertain to the project such as some t-shirt concepts, a website with complete bios of the players on the record as well as some other fun things. I'm excited!!

So although it's been so up and down, please have faith that the record project and the anticipated after-effects of the production will level out....and not on the low end either.

Thanks again for all your patience. You SHALL be rewarded!

Where Is He...

Some of you may have noticed on Facebook the past couple of days that I have posted a website called "Where Is The Weston Monster?" Right now, I'm doing my own work to see if I can figure out the mystery behind the creature and in the next few days, the site will be updated to allow for your help as well. It's been a whole summer in Summerville, SC without any sign of the beast and I am wondering why the sightings have ceased and if there will be any more in the near future...I'm guessing there will be.

So please keep your eyes glued to the website for updates and sighting reports on The Weston Monster. It should get interesting...
