Bruce Kimmel Photograph bk's notes

Well, dear readers, it is very late and I now must write these here notes in a hurry.  I got waylaid by a little detour over on the Tube of You.  I had an inkling of an idea and I wanted to see if it was practical, but once you’re on the Tube of You it becomes addictive, I’m afraid and now it is after midnight and now I’m gonna let it all hang out.

Yesterday was, I believe, a day.  I got about seven-and-a-half hours of sleep, got up, had a telephonic conversation, did some work on the computer, listened to music, and began to prepare what will be the second release we announce, hopefully on Thursday. At some point, I moseyed on over to the mail place, and thankfully the important envelope had arrived.  I picked it and some packages up, then went to the bank, where I did some banking, which is always a good thing to do when you go to the bank.  After that, I decided that the quickest and easiest food choice would be McDonald’s, so I went there, got some food, brought it home, and ate it all up.

Then I listened to lots more music, whilst doing lots more work on the computer, and I found a really cool extra for one of the releases we’re doing.  Then I had to upload tracks for our mastering engineer.  Then I had to take a break from listening to music to listen to other music from these upcoming releases.  Then I had a telephonic conversation with Muse Margaret.  I’d sent her four auditions for GEE.  Her favorite was exactly who I thought she’d choose, and that person is really my favorite, too, even though if that person wants to do it for the deal I can do, I’ll have to do a little directing, although I think once anyone reads the entire book, things will come clear.  Her second favorite was the other gal I really liked – she just has a great voice and I think she’d do really well for young GEE and Peyton, but I’m not sure she could pull off older GEE, which I’m pretty certain the other gal could.  But she’s a good back-up to have in my pocket.  But I’m probably going to give her the Adriana book to do – she’d auditioned for that one first and was the only one who even approximated my writing rhythm in those books. I’m going to have to read a little of Patrick Bronstein for whoever does the book, just so they can hear his rhythms and his flavor.

So, I should be able to finish casting the two books by Friday. Then I’ll send nice notes to all the folks who auditioned.  After that, I listened to more music, had more telephonic calls and that was that.

Today, I’ll do the usual morning stuff.  I think my dinner with David Wechter will actually happen tomorrow night, so I’m definitely going to the food court.  The other times I’ve thought about it, I just, for whatever reason, didn’t want to.  I don’t know if I’ll do the Philly cheesesteak place or the Panda Express place or the pizza place – many choices there.  I’ll write the blurbs for our new releases and get audio samples where they need to go, and then I can relax.

Tomorrow, we have our second Group Rep rehearsal, and then I’ll do the dinner with David – perhaps we’ll go to Barone’s and I can have that great antipasto salad again.  I’ve been thinking about it a lot.  Not sure what’s with Friday or the weekend, except I’m pretty sure I have a meeting or a meal or something going on and hopefully someone will remind me.  And then it’s right into Kritzerland rehearsals.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, do the usual morning stuff, eat, hopefully pick up packages, write blurbs, do audio samples, and then relax.  Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Ask BK Day, the day in which you get to ask me or any dear reader any old question you like and we get to give any old answer we like.  So, let’s have loads of lovely questions and loads of lovely answers and loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, happy to have had an inkling of an idea that could turn into something fun.
