blink of an eye

I turn 24 in 5 months. That’s only 151 days. I am overwhelmed by how fast life is moving. Grad school starts next week. October is almost over. Fall is my favorite.

We had another packed weekend. Friday after work Erin and I went pumpkin hunting at a local orchard. WAIT THAT REMINDS ME I still have cider in the fridge yay. Anyway. We’ll carve the pumpkins some time soon.

PUMPKINS!

We packed up and drove down to Dover and played at 33 West. Lots of friends came out. We took a short break and my father played a couple songs. Erin sang one with him too.

Saturday was UD’s HOMECOMING! Greg was nice enough to play techno music at 6am while cooking eggs so I got up and made a couple pounds of bacon and people kept on arriving and after one tailgating false-start, we eventually were able to set up and tailgate and grill and eat and it was fun.

Erin and I got back and changed and went to Wilmington to be a part of Noelle Picara‘s music video for her new single, “Zombie Girl.” It was my first time acting for a video. I enjoyed it even though I’m so awkward. The producer had me sprinting down streets and jumping fences and running up and down tall staircases multiple times for different takes and angles and fancy stuff. SPOILERS: At the end of the video I get eaten. Sometimes the zombies tickled me too. It was a fun night. Noelle’s show went really well too. They covered Muse and The Cranberries and she played two sets of new and older originals. I’ll upload videos sometime soon ^_^

Filming!

Sunday we had a second full-day recording session with Diner Club! It was more relaxed than last month’s session. I think that is mainly because I felt a little bit more comfortable running things and also because the different groups were more scheduled and knew what they wanted. Em had us streaming live via her laptop all day and at one point there were 99 viewers!? That was cool. We got five more tracks mostly finished. Now I need to start mixing and figuring out what else we need to complete everything.

Last night Erin and I went back to Supermagic Studios to track some of her vocals and also to record Shane‘s song. It was nice. Shane’s mother Judy made an amazing soup with this fancy stuff called “quinoa” and it was delicious. That’s all. Back to the grind. We are seeing Ingrid Michaelson tomorrow at the Queen!
