Happy New Years Eve! I am so excited to be in NZ! It's a beautiful place and I am so happy to be with my brother and family. Yay. I think in NZ we get to do New Years before every where else I have ever lived!
So I am thinking about good, bad and ugly of the year that was 2018 for The Strange Valentines....
The Good - I would say I am super proud of our album 'Society of Good Intentions", our 12 videos that represent our 12 songs on the album, and the 'Live in the Tiny Tub project. These things have been very fun and I am so proud of us. Plus we have had so much crazy fun playing in Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and the UK. The Good has been so good. I love the folks we have met, the experiences we have drunk up, and the stunts that have worked out so cool.
The Bad - I really like thinking about good more than bad. However the bad is how I tend to learn things to do better. What has been bad? - well, last winter was terribly cold. Science was really bad. What can we learn? Find a warmer place for winter and give up science. Done. Cool, something already done.
The Ugly - And what is ugly? Well, we do have a 2018 memory that was pretty ugly....oh I hate to say it, but here it is. The Manitou Beach experience was pretty ugly. Sorry guys, we loved Manitou Beach, the atmosphere, the people, the landscape, but unfortunately the gig was an organizational nightmare. It makes the ugly list. We also had to pare down pretty seriously with moving into an apartment including a lot of music stuff, so that did get a bit of ugly, but whatever. I guess our ugly list isn't all that ugly.
So what do you have for good, bad, and ugly?
Hey and Happy New Year!
