Notable that there have been no SFWPs here since Saturday.  That may be a record lull since the thread's inception.  Heh, lull.

Dog ate an old shit he found in the yard yesterday.  Today he shat, and I suspect he may have shat his shit.  Someone let Seinfeld know I have a new bit for him.

These were two of my friends who I've worked with for 13+ years. One of them I'm pretty sure I was put with to train under on my very first day.

There's another one in the hospital on a respirator. I am told managers skyped with him to check in on him and he was crying and saying he doesn't want to die.

Shit is rough.

my refrigerator/freezer died.  It's my fault, I went overboard grocery shopping on Sunday.  Doesn't matter how well you plan and follow through with good intentions, a shitnami tidal wave will always be on the horizon to challenge you.  But after 8 hours I am feeling relief that I saved all my meat and other perishables.  I am very thankful.

Yep, that wold def cause my mind to unravel.

It's not even like a droning noise cause every time he moves it it buzzes at a different pitch so my mind can't block it out. I live near an airport and a motorway and those are no way near as annoying as that chainsaw.

I think all that muscle mass I gained from the gym has slowly been getting replaced by fat since hunkering down. All the gyms are closed though, and I don't have any exercise equipment at home.

Oh well. Just gotta hit the gym like a mf once I'm back on a regular work schedule.

Totally. Although my gym is constantly hitting me with very considerate texts and e-mails, letting me know that they care about me, sending me tips for exercising at home, wishing me happy Easter ... Before the quarantine I would never hear shit from them, but suddenly it's like they're my best friend, lol. I guesss they're scared that after a couple of months I might get the hang of just hanging around and never come back. And rightly so, I might add!

Also, happy Easter, everyone! (No strings attached.)

I think the song I'm working on might be outside my abilities as a vocalist.  If not delivered well, it will just sound extremely annoying.  Not looking forward to banging my head against the wall in the days to come.

singing is hard. cheat! there's software for fixing things. 

one producer i worked with would give this one singer a couple shots of nice tequila.. anejo i think it was.. and let her smoke a cigarette or two to warm up. i think mostly she loosened up and would sing out in a less self conscious way.

Software will not fix the things I'd need in this case.  it's 100% the tone and conviction with which it's sung that's going to count.  The notes I can hit accurately no prob, although there's one part where it goes from quite high to quite low which IS a bit more challenging than the usual in that regard.  If sung right it will be powerful, and if it misses the mark even a little bit it will sound embarrassing.  The tequilla shots are actually a great idea.  That should relax my throat, in a way that a cold drink wouldn't.  I might take that suggestion!

Right now my throat tightens up when I just think of singing it... which is bizarre.  Might be some psychological thing going on.

so much is a head fuck right? i mean.. half of it is just knowing you can do it and surrendering to the facts. i don't sing or play an instrument in any conventional way but being on the engineer side of it i've recorded some singers and pretty much every session i'd tell the singer.. rapper whoever.. that "we're just going to set levels and do a rough take so don't worry about being perfect" and i'd always put the machine into record and not tell them because sometimes it'd be the best take.
