Video recording

Wow recording yourself rehearsing is hard. It’s a whole new world.

We’ve been working on submissions for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts and trying to get used to the camera running is nerve-racking. It’s great practice though. It’s hard to watch yourself in the screen. I find myself often not looking into mirrors, takes me out of myself and into harsh criticism so I just don’t look!

The deadline for Tiny Desks is this weekend so wish us luck. We will probably submit America Where Are You.

America Where Are You has always been notoriously hard for me to sing because it’s so emotional for me, now more than ever. But I think we’ve already gotten a good take. I will post all the good takes to YouTube. Cheers!

thanksgiving 2016 in the time of fascism

I spoke to my parents again and am going to go to Thanksgiving. I tried to explain that I don’t feel like I can talk to them because they always yell (and then sometimes I yell back) and I’m tired of the yelling. I don’t think they will ever change at this point or understand what their vote for Trump and hate has done but they are my parents and the only ones I will have.
