Happy New Year 2006!
Just a quick recap on 2005 as I head into 2006. Obviously some good things happened this year.
• First and foremost the band and I played some great gigs
• Practical Insanity was released and is already selling
• Practical Insanity was released on iTunes and is selling well
• Streaming of older material on services like Rhapsody and Yahoomusic
• I purchased a tour bus, recently named “Claire”
• The second video for Practical Insanity was shot – Falling In
• T-Shirts for Practical Insanity were printed and are already selling
• Practical Insanity Posters becoming a big hit at shows and conferences
• Nominated for Best Band of the Year going into 2006 (I find out in March of 2006)
Obviously the music seems to be grabbing hold of people. I saw a rough near final edit of the Falling In video yesterday and I’m excited to see the final version in the next day or two – Byron Turk has done a phenomenal job with it. It will be getting shipped off to The Fuse in early January so keep the fingers crossed that it gets a really great response.
In all 2005 was a very good year. I’m really looking forward to 2006 and working my ass off with the band to blow up on the national scene.
