TGIF...




So my paperback is still a best seller -- I lifted the above images right off my publisher's website -- and now you can get yourself a copy with my autograph and a secret little message here. I know, I know, you all want to read about Rock School and not my book but I've got nothing new at the moment, and well, I did originally start this blog because I'm a writer...

Wait, I do have some news and it's pretty exciting. Julie's been offered a job this summer as an intern at Studio Four/Jive Records where they recorded the Rock School soundtrack and she's grabbing it. This is way cool since recording/producing is her major in college though of course her main dream is to play bass in a viable rock band. Speaking of that, her band (which features Eric on drums, Dan Nitz on guitar, and Teddi Tarnoff on vocals) is totally fabulous - they just recorded a demo CD and it blew me away. What's really wild is that her dad is friendly with someone knows Phil Nicolo (owner of Studio Four and president of the local chapter of the Grammys) and he said his pal told him that Phil compared Julie and Eric to Sly and Robbie Dunbar as the world's best rhythm section and may be interested in using them for future studio work, too.

Ah well. That's it for now. I have to really focus on my novel(s) over the next several days and then I'LL BE LEAVING FOR HOLLYWOOD/SEATTLE AND THE SCREENING OF ROCK SCHOOL AND ACTUALLY SEEING THE KIDS PERFORM WITH JON ANDERSON AND EDDIE VEDDER AND HOW FUCKING GREAT IS THAT.

Sorry. Just needed to let that out. Being cooped up all day in a law office is very, very frustrating. I seriously don't know how much longer I'm going to do this 9-5 paralegal gig -- I've done my time and I'm so, so tired and burnt out. I want to spend my (yuk)golden years doing what I love most, which other than being groupie Mom is of course writing, and I am going to find a way to do it or have a stroke trying.

Have a nice weekend -- I have got to seriously concentrate on my book, but of course if I get any news, I'll pop on to post.

Congratulations to both you and Julie!!

Katie, that would be so cool! I'm hoping to also meet up with Dave Clapper, Ellen Parker, and Denis Mahagin. I have links to the film and venue where the kids are playing in a post below - I'd recommend buying tickets now.

Oh man, I hope you and Geoff can make it. That'd be awesome.
