Day 16: Song Recording.

I have spent the last 4 hours on skype video chat with Alex writing what will be the 10th track for the new Parselmouth album. I really like our song writing dynamic, and it's amazing we can actually do this over video, thousands of miles away from each other.

I can hear him recording the guitar part for the bridge right now as I type this. :)

It's a song about the Parselmouths approaching Harry Potter because they obviously share a gift, and want to propose he joins the band. Really, I think they're just using him for his fame.

All I have eaten today is half a chocolate easter bunny (I ate the ears yesterday; today was its face, upper torso, and basket with what I think was supposed to be its baby inside). The legs and pelvic region are still sitting, abandoned, in the box on my desk.

I am very excited because I have managed to turn my good friend Liz into a Doctor Who fan, so this weekend when she comes over to do album related things (she's designing our new tshirts and the album artwork) we're also going to watch a bit of DW together. She's almost caught up to me, so I am going to rewatch the Season 2 finale. I think watching it again might help me to move past it and finally start on Season 3. xD

I don't really have any funny anecdotes or stories to tell today like usual. I've just been doing music, nonstop, all week. Literally. But I love it so much and I am soooo excited for the world to hear this album.

Oh there's one other thing I did... the grocery store near my parents' house is going out of business, so I saw all books and magazines were 70% off and I bought a copy of Cosmo, which I never do because usually it's expensive and I'm not going to waste my money like that.

But here is a word to the wise: If your boyfriend lives in another COUNTRY, don't read Cosmo. That's just a stupid idea. x.x

I got our new Parselmouth buttons in the mail today! I went downstairs to get my guacamole chips because I am disgusting and don't eat real food, and I saw on my little mail spot on the entryway shelf that I had a package and there they were! Adorable little pink and green beauties that we'll be selling at LeakyCon.

I'm trying my hardest not to talk about the YouTube redesign because EVERYONE is talking about it and I don't want to go on a rant, but I have a whole list of things I don't like currently that I truly hope get changed before this is finalized. I have switched my channel over for the time being just to show YouTube that I CAN embrace change even if I dont particularly want to, but I haven't even been on YT all day because I don't want to look at it.

What youtube has.
Lots of people uploading, commenting and watching lots of videos. (Uses lots of servers and bandwidth, expencive, not much revenue)

What youtube wants.
Lots of people watching the same few videos. No comments, no uploading. (Very little load on servers, easier on bandwidth, cheep, generates buckets of cash)

How does it get that?
Kill the community. Stop uploads.
But as gently as possible so they don't get pissed and wont want to watch all the new Miley Cyrus videos. WOOOOOO! :(

Doctor Who is phenomenal, isn't it?! I've spent my entire spring break finishing series 3 & starting 4. It's on where I live at 11 PM on PBS on Saturdays but it sucks to wait 7 days to watch the next episode. Sadly, none of my friends ever want to watch it w/ me.

Everyone keeps on talking about the new YT change. I have the whole beta channel page set up, but I still haven't seen that so called change yet. I'm so curious as to what it looks like!
