Inherent issue with being your own boss, product, brick & mortar, marketing team, financial advisor, and clean-up crew: My expertise doesn't run that size. I had grand visions of how I was going to release and what I was going to release, but here are the facts as I know them:
1. I've been sick for what feels like 100 years.
2. I have a son. He's 5. He doesn't take care of himself.
3. I have a full-time day job, that is currently kicking my ass.
4. I close on a house 4 days after the CD release show.
5. My basement is still full of baby stuff that I will never again use, and I don't want to move it to the new house.
6. Christmas is coming.
So, let's just all agree that life is imperfect and cluttered and there is really no need at all whatsoever for pomp and circumstance. So you know what? Let's just get on with it, because I really need to haul out the Christmas tree today, even though it is totally impractical because I'm moving in a few weeks. My son demands it. He is not even the least bit practical. He once insisted on taking binoculars and a kickball to nap with him.
The release date for the new record is still December 1, but I updated the online store, and you can preorder now if you'd like. It's not on iTunes, yet, however. So if you'd prefer that route, you'll have to hold both your buns and your horses. But do not hold your horse's buns.
I also have stickers on the way. I was going to do t-shirts, but then I rolled my eyes at myself and changed my mind. Trying to figure out how to design a t-shirt made me tired and achy, and the thought of scheduling time with someone to help made me feel frazzled. Also, holy shit, buying a house is expensive. Little P's little budget needs to sit down for a minute. So, there will be no t-shirts. Maybe in the summer.
Also, there is a video coming soon. Unless I was too awkward to yield any useable footage.
So... TA-DA! Party Time! Go here for a FREE PREVIEW of the whole damn record. I feel really good about it. So don't tell me if you hate it.
More than anything, thank you for allowing me to be a big hot mess right now. Sometimes you show someone that you're a big hot mess and they run for the hills. I appreciate that you're still here reading and maintaining even an iota of interest. Thank you.
