Solo Album

I'd like to do a Barry Manilow type solo album. Crushing emotional ballads with and orchestra. Maybe that'll be the next next next next next next next album in 8 years or so.

I haven't brought it up to my manager.

I'm not really interested in doing a solo album of standards.

This Website

Programming this website has been unbelievably fun for me, since day 1. Now with a functioning market, its pull over me is even more powerful. That being said, I want to limit my time working here to 4-6 hours a day, so I still have time to work on new music. That means I can't add new features as quickly as I'd like.

Thanks to all the HTML/CSS heroes who are helping with everyone's account pages. The pages are beautiful and interesting.

Here is my to-do list.

Since this article is a copy of Mr. Rivers' Neighborhood with less information, I think I could delete this one.
