recording with swith_drawn

they say that a task will take up however much time you allot to it. in one sense, it has taken an eternity to record a set of songs i wrote about 10 years ago, because i never set a deadline for it. in another sense, it is taking exactly three days.

after 10 years of schedules-never-working-out, swith_drawn and i finally found a small window of time when we could get together and play music. we had exactly one day for rehearsing - yesterday - and we started recording this afternoon at my friend jason's house. we've already done the basics for six songs, with three more to go tomorrow. then it's off to our grandmother's in harrisburg on wednesday for christmas.

it's so strange to hear these old songs with drums, as they were intended. i am incredibly psyched and so glad i waited for the chance to play them with stephen - they never would have sounded right otherwise. thanks brother!
