"It's the end of a fucked up year/...there's another one comin'"
--Embrace, "End of a Year"
Musically, 2010 was pretty fucked up for me.
My involvement in two long-term bands ended. In late July, I quit Ovipositor, due to personality conflicts. It was a tough decision to follow through on, seeing as that I'd spent a full seven years involved in creating Ovipositor music. In October, Barney Cauldron fell apart. I had spent three years attempting to lead that band, but I feel that my efforts were very flawed, and the resultant implosion was probably justified.
All that said, 2011 looks to be a bit brighter. I hope to be announcing gigs by a few new projects, both of which have arisen from the ashes of my last two bands, along with another project that is shaping up from simply asking around, "do you know anyone who is looking for a drummer?"
Happy New Year!
