A CAPTION CONTEST WITH ZERO PRIZES AND VERY LITTLE PROMPTING
You-Me-Go friends, family, and guests (and those of you doing Erica Froman google searches.... SHHHHHHHH... I won't tell):
We are in the shiny land of new album recording limbo.
We have our record! It's been tracked! If you were to walk up to the pearly gates of Engine Studios, you could find a machine, hit play, and listen to the entire album start-to-finish. Monday was an exciting day.
(this religious analogy... seems terribly flawed... but onward!)
But that's not convenient. You'd eventually be kicked out of the studio and be told to wait outside (ahhh, there it is). And there you would stand - waiting - for three more weeks as we mix the record, transferring it from "weird machine in Studio A" to "all the sounds are in the right place and we feel comfortable putting this cd in your hands."
Our last day of recording was Tuesday, our first day of mixing is tomorrow. What did I do with today?
That's right. Television. Or to be more specific, legally hosted television programs found on the internet to be watched at my convenience! The problem - I am woefully out of my touch with my idiot box. Apologies to Hiro (above).
However, the fall season begins this week. And I am hunting for online treasures.
--But sir, why is this? Why are we only talking shows on the internet? Do you not own a television at your apartment?
(intervening question as blog-writing device? CHECK!)
--I do! Or my sister does. I live irregular hours, though. And it seems as if the apartment television is set aside for one channel only and that channel is Bravo. Which means I could converse with you reasonably about "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" and ask questions of paradox such as "how can Top Chef advertise last night's show as being both a Season Finale and a Part 1?"
It's either a finale or it's not. Last night wasn't. GOODBYE BRIAN!
(I feel as if I am the only person on the planet cheering for Hung)
But other than that, I have no idea what to watch (except for Lost... which is still months away).
Can you help?
I tried three out yesterday - Heroes, Journeyman, and Friday Night Lights. Coincidentally, all three are hosted free and legally at the NBC mothership. Perhaps I should see what ABC is up to as well.
The verdict: Heroes is pure gold, Journeyman is not (for real - I could only watch five minutes), and I'm not sure about Friday Night Lights. I will give it another episode or two. But... what else should I be on the lookout for?
So, in advance - thanks for your help. This post is merely a late night snack in between Matt's latest coast to coast roast and Danny's delightful ------------ (IT'S A SECRET BUT YOU WILL LOVE IT). And thanks for stopping by - I feel this final video is a fitting gift from recording limbo:
Noni's Field - a new and unrecorded song that nearly all of you have heard before. Just close your eyes and pretend it's track five on the record (BECAUSE IT IS). Most likely.
