What have I been up to?

This:

Sxxxxxxxxxxs Recording

(The name is not final.)

This will likely be the name of my recording studio. I'm the high roller. Joe's the artistic director, and our friend, Tony is the producer. (Titles are meaningless & subject to change.)

A large swath of our house has been turned into a recording studio, complete with vocal booth, live room, control room, equipment racks, amps, keyboards, computers, booms, guitars-a-plenty, mics by the dozen & cables by the score.

Bastrop, Texas, it seems, has quite a music scene. Overflow from Austin, perhaps? What it doesn't have too many of yet is studios.

That's where we come in.

What else?

Converting the boring incandescent rope light in my living room's ceiling into computer-controlled (and iPhone controlled) RGB LED light show.

Working on a secret project with the Robot Group of Austin.

And lots of other, boring stuff.

YAWN!

Another "eccentric" turning his house into a recording studio. That's almost as boring as people who make tongue-in-cheek remarks about exciting DIY projects.

Almost.

Well, I had planned to turn my place into a bordello, but I was afraid the girls' former pimp might steal all of the stuff in my house and I'd drown my dad's red Porsche. Besides, I'm too busy applying to Princeton & hanging out with my friends on the Lake Michigan shore.

If I speed-read that, I get a nice juxtaposition of bordellos and Princeton.

LOL, of course. Just ask my Yale & Brown friends. :-p

I assume you noticed, upon second reading, the similarity to the plot of Risky Business. Of course you did.

Oops. I get an F on that one.

The only thing I remember about Risky Business was Tom Cruise dancing around in his underwear and shirt.

Wow, I bet you never saw yourself managing your own music studio, eh??

Not until after I met Joe, that's for sure.
