Sometimes you meet people who are so hungry and are so passionate about their work that it inspires you. These are the people you need to be around when you’re trying to be productive in whatever it is that you do. I’ve been a bit quiet on our SKETCHPAD projects, and to be quite honest, the hunger turned into exhaustion for a minute, but after our last meeting, the ball continues to roll. Because of the economic pressures, business is hard for EVERYONE but it’s really about who stays afloat because everything comes and goes in a cycle. We had to make some changes in our business dealings but from here, everything is fit into place. The next few releases from SKETCHPAD is going to be different from what you’re used to seeing. I’ve revamped the whole look and I really can’t wait to show you guys what we’re working on at this point, but I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the outcome.

Well, back to the whole topic of surrounding yourself with productive people, we hung out and pigged out with a friend of ours who is really going to be BIG soon. He’s in the process of tearing down his garage and turning it into an all-out studio. The vocal-booth is almost done and his whole vision of how the end result is going to be sounded really mind-blowingly dope. (I don’t know if ‘blowingly’ is a word so don’t use it when you’re playing Scrabble.)

There were no seats or tables for all the guests arriving for the BBQ, so it was all built on the spot with whatever pieces of wood piled up from the studio construction. Talk about a last minute improvisation eh? To let you in on how it went down, even the BBQ grill was bought and set up minutes before people started arriving. Everyone put in some kind of work to get the party started, but once it started, it was a success and we all had fun and ate plenty. Kinda rare that I actually EAT at a BBQ and was full.

Ugly Eaters.

Oh, and AUX is the name. Remember it. You’ll be hearing it more often soon.
