After the June I had, it has been nice to have a few days off… but not really. Tomorrow, July 30th, will be the first gig I’ve had since the end of June. And, while the rest was welcome, I’ve been a little concerned that people have lost my number. A quick poll around the different on-line communities I belong to, and several phone calls to other freelance friends confirm something I already knew… June has been a slow month for everyone!
So I’ve been working on some things around the house and office that have sorely needed attention. Mostly doing minor maintenance on my gear, editing my movie (Uncle Bob’s Leg) with the help of my buddy Jon Deckert and coming up with other things to keep me occupied.
While staring at the screen the other day a flash of an idea came to me… something that has been gestating for quite some time, and I think it is time to execute it. Over the years I have met a lot of interesting people in and out of this show business thing I call a Job. I made a list of interesting people I have met along the way… then I made a list of interesting people I have met in my lifetime. Frankly, it astounds me how many interesting people I know… people who wouldn’t think they are interesting, but they are. Famous people, nearly famous people, and people who are famous, but you wouldn’t know them if you passed them on the street. So what I’m going to do is start a little interview blog, right here at SteveBakerSoundGuy.com. Have little chats with them about who they are, what they do and how they got to be where they are or are not.
So, if you’re interesting, expect a call from me. If you interested, stay tuned. I’m using this post as motivation and commitment to actually do this one. Stay tuned folks…. and until the next one..
