First of all, I was going to write about something else yesterday on the blog, but an Ode to my Toast came out instead. This marks the FIRST time I’ve written a poem instead of prose for you all here. And, I think it may in fact be the first poem I’ve written since my BIG BIKE accident 5 years ago. I used to write poetry quite a bit for fun – goes along with making up songs to sing for the cats. I didn’t think about this one, it just appeared. So I am encouraged that my creative mind is starting to make more of a comeback.
Also we got the shipment of the ceiling track and sound blankets that we are using to turn our guest room into a viable recording space.
Here’s the before – it will be a few days before there is an after.
If you’d like to see some more of the recording space and how I use it now, Here’s a link to the video tour I made to send the Coffee Klatchers.
For the first time ever, Mark used my studio mic to record some takes of the poem he’s reading for the next show. It’s his favorite poem. I was astonished by how much heart and will he’s putting into his ‘performance’. Usually he uses Speakpipe on his iPhone to record. It is HIS favorite method. To use a studio mic takes some getting used to, as it shows your breathing and vocal tics much more. However, it also allows more color in your voice, and I’m very excited about Mark’s progress.
Went to my animation voice class, and for various reasons my classmates couldn’t make it, so I lucked into a GREAT solo lesson with my coach David. It was very fruitful and I was pleased with my progress. Especially as we both noted, my fear of the sound booth seems to be totally a thing of the past. YAY!
After this, I’m going to write the show for day 116. I’m hoping to record it early tomorrow. Mark told me he wants to record some more takes for his poem too. So after we do that, I will begin dismantling the studio equipment and cleaning the guest room so we can begin our sound transformation tomorrow. Exciting!
Have a great day BCs!
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
