Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Bits of News, Largely Dispensable

Not much news to report. Tomorrow I'm going to take a little time to look through some old recordings (there's still a couple of interesting unreleased things from the singles sessions that I could make available) to see what I can find for the next CDBaby upload which I was informed today is now available. 

Jeez...seems like I just uploaded the last one. Anyway, not sure what I'll upload. You can probably guess from previous posts that it'll either be some sort of live compilation or another collection of some of the singles from 2015-2016. Since I have already done some preliminary work on re-mixing the first single, HUMAN AGAIN, that might be a good choice to revisit that material.

I'm going to see George Nipe III tomorrow evening. I'll be discussing some band matters. I doubt that we're going to get together this week since I haven't any idea what songs we'd be doing and I'll need a week to get myself up to speed on the four or five songs we start with.

On this day in 2001, George Harrison died. This period was one of the worst ever in my own life. George was my favorite Beatle, of course. But even worse than losing George, in November and December, I lost my dog Maggie, as well as a good friend from college, as well as my favorite aunt, and worst of all, my dad died the night before Christmas. And my personal life wasn't exactly all peaches and cream either. Hell, even my band, Book of Kills, was in crisis. Oh well...I made it through. We all endure what we have to endure, eh?

"It is being here now that is important. There's no past. There's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there ever is, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it. And we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one." -- George Harrison
