Record ALL the songs!

We seem to have happy problems when it comes to the Thunder. Namely, we can't stop writing songs, and we like all of them. So right now, we're working on getting our new album, Time's Arrow, ready for release. Meanwhile, we've written enough material for CD #4, but also have songs written for an entire concept album. Also, we're thinking of releasing a Halloween EP. Also, we want to tour again this year.

It only sucks to have these problems because we're not loaded with money. We're not on a huge label that will allow us to record ALL the songs, plus we're only 4 people and we only have so many hours in the day. So what we have to do is pick and choose which route to go, pick and choose the strongest songs, pick and choose whether to go the traditional album route or... gasp! Release a concept album. Personally, it's one of my biggest dreams to release a concept album. As you might have noticed from the way I write my lyrics, I'm big into story telling. I love playing different parts and writing music from a character's perspective. So, a concept album would be a dream come true for me! However, there are also some songs we've written that I really love. Or I'm starting to. For example, yesterday we came up with a new song that matched lyrics I had already written and I got that "HAPPY DAY! NEW SONG!" tingle that I always get when we write something I love.

So, what to do? I'm not exactly sure. I'm happy we have these sorts of "problems" because it just goes to show that we're creative enough to continue writing music, recardless of the circumstances. There's still a lot of songs I'd like to write and sing, so you can bet we won't be quitting any time soon. I just wish it didn't have to take so long to share our music with the world!

Tοday, ӏ went to the beach front with my kіdѕ.
І found a seа shell аnd gаve it to my 4 year old ԁaughteг and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." Ѕhe рlaced the shеll
to her ear and screamed. Τhere was a hermit
crab inside аnd it ρinched her еаг.
She never ωants to go back! LoL I know this is
entіrely off topic but I had to tеll someone!

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog like yours
take a lot of work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my
journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
