Oh dear, I have neglected you!

It has been brought to my attention that I neglect my various internet pages.  I think I've been better with youtube lately but yeah... no blog posts in February. Ah.

Well, for some reason as Dom sings the Spice Girls to me over Stickam, the old blog just came to mind!  I am pretty tired so this will probably quite short. I'm at that point where you don't know whether you're more hungry or tired, and you need to follow one of those instincts soon. I think I'm gonna go with sleep and leave food for the morning. Dom is now on to Take That if you're interested. It's good. 

Ok so blogging... how does it go again? Oh what's going on with me, yes that's it! Well I'll start with today I suppose, not that I did anything particularly interesting. Well this blog isn't about how interesting my life is, is it?!  The only incredibly interesting thing that happened, unless you count me unsuccessfully attempting to write a song for MuggleSam, is a friend of mine finished his EP!

Ok it would be better news for my blog readers if it was my EP, but live with it. I don't think I've mentioned him before so here is your formal introduction; This friend is also known as Jay. I'll give you a link to his youtube channel at the bottom, it would be a substantial missed opportunity for you not to go there and subscribe to his videos.  So he has been working on an EP, if you don't know that's basically half an album, and it's what I'm working on too (though mine is unfortunately rather static at the moment on account of my lack of a good microphone.) I have been talking to Jay about it for a long time and was more excited than it would be realistic to expect! But I wasn't disappointed. I actually felt proud of him, which is fairly ridiculous as I have had nothing to do with his musical education at all. I suppose you can be proud of friends... Or I'm just weird. Well at any rate, it's piano based, alternative, low fi, full of awesome and free. I'll link that too, you can decide for yourself. I told him I was jealous because I wish I'd been recording when I was his age (15... I think) and that's very true. I'm constantly devastated by the fact I was too damn shy to go with this music thing until I was, what, 21? I'd love to hear the songs I had inside me as a teenager. Oh well, at least I'm doing it now.

Right this is quite long now isn't it? I haven't really talked about my life at all! Well I'll be going back to do the upstaged final in a couple of weeks, I'm sure you'll hear about that soon enough. It's just in my head because we had a little meeting about it tonight.

There you go, that last paragraph is enough to cover my life, its 3:33 now, which although I like as a time, is quite late. So I'll be ending this blog, which basically turned into an advert for Jay's EP. Oh well, it deserves a blog! I said I'd do a video for him actually; I'll do that in the next couple of days.

So there you go then; a blog! I'll try to make the next one less than a month away.

p.s. Mine will not be free. Just feel you should all know that!

p.p.s. It's now gone 4am and that means it's far too late for proofreading or spellchecking. I’m sure you'll get over that!
