Seven new songs! A long summer. I’m writing my 1,000 words a day, sometimes more, 1,250 ideally, and sometimes 1,500. That’s 4 pages, 5 pages, 6 pages, etc. Word count never changes, it’s the only yardstick for success this summer for me. Working like a mule!
Ahhh, but it’s good. My new Converse shoes & Ted Baker pants arrived yesterday, and Lexus had my dashboard in stock for replacement, and they actually have drinkable espresso in their waiting room.
And for a quick weekend reward next month, when I reach my milestone of 300 pages on the current book, Lois and I are flying to LA to see Bryan Ferry at the Hollywood Bowl.
What a ramble! Here’s my new CD. You can buy it immediately at CD Baby. Soon to be in Waterloo Records and on iTunes. Kim Simpson and William Mansell played with me, made it possible, along with Cris Burns, brilliant engineer studio maestro at Ameripolitan Studio, courtesy Dale Watson. Jon Dee Graham guest stars on one track, “Mockingbird Town,” and it’s a pretty one. See ya soon. … Like at the Texas Book Festival November 4-5, where I will be presenting TWO books, Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir, by Eddie Wilson and Jesse Sublett; and Esther’s Follies: Funny Business, by Jesse Sublett, period.
