It's amazing what can happen in a day. The album, as I know it, is done.
This week will be dedicated to finalizing the graphics, but otherwise, I can toast to the end of a very long process. The financial burden is nowhere near over, and probably won't be until the CD release, but at least the leg work is done. If all goes well, I'll have copies of the disc in my hands by the end of July.
Luckily, the end of recording coincided with some birthday celebrations, so I got to indulge a bit before diving back into debt. We started at Oz Cafe, and finished at the Mercury Lounge. Oz was amazing, as usual (the food! the drinks!), but the Merc? I could have done without seeing the bartender do questionable things to his lady friend behind the bar / in the women's bathroom... But hey! I was celebrating, and no amount of gratuitous sex on the floor was going to spoil that.
I'm off to make an enormous lasagna and salad. Time to overdo it, I say.
