a funny little valentine

Happy Valentines Day, everyone! I know that Valentines day can be a tricky subject. But the way I see it…there’s nothing wrong with showering your loved one with affection over and above what you may every day. As far as all the chocolates and flowers and expensive dinner reservations go…well…do with that what you will. But for today, my valentines comes in the form of a song. Enjoy.

PS: If you were wondering… This is the (re)start of a project that I have had on the back burner for a while. You may have remembered a few years ago I sang in a short lived jazz group called “The Free Time Four” Unfortunately, the Free Time Four lacked free time, and we disbanded. I’ve always kept the idea in the back of my mind though. Whenever a fellow musician would mention they had an affinity for jazz, I would casually mention my plans for fame and fortune a low key jazz ensemble, and hope they dug the idea. And as a result of my hint dropping, “Courteney Rodda and the Other Guys” has been officially been born.
A big thank-you to Mr. Rob Herrett, who has agreed to be the guitar player extraordinaire for the project. And of course, Mr. Dave Rodda will be accompanying on drums. We’re still looking for the last “Other Guy” to be our bass player…but for now I’m quite pleased with this little ensemble (and I hope you are too.)

day 148: untitled…a post about nothing.

I really wonder if posting something when I have nothing to share is worth it. I mean…I have things to share…they just need to wait.
For example…Chatty Budgies is coming along quite nicely. We had a meeting today and went over some product that we made in the last two weeks. I bought a domain and will be working on a website in the next two weeks. I can’t really show anything, because I want it all to be launched at the same time when everything is finished. So…stay tuned for Chatty Budgies.
I also have been working on a little song that I was going to post on Valentines day, but it appears I have run out of time. I will definitely be posting it in the next few weeks.
And speaking of Valentines day…Tomorrow evening Dave and I are heading out to Vancouver. (See above–partially packed) We will be spending the night at my brothers place, and then Valentines day we will be spending time in our favourite part of Vancouver (Main St.) In the evening we will be heading to VSO (Vancouver Symphony Orchestra). I will be wearing my most wonderful dress that I made. Huzzah! You will most likely see pictures posted in retrospect, since I will be away from my computer till Tuesday.
Ok. So this post was boring.
I promise not to suck at blogging in the future. Heh…*sigh*
