I am not going to talk about the election outcomes right now. This post is about me, dammit.
My last few weeks have involved the amazing Future of Music Policy Summit, speaking engagements and meetings on each end of the country (including CMJ in NYC followed by a kickass trip back to VT), an international TV appearance, new recordings for the Strange Angels project with Arthur Leon Adams III, and the erection (ha!) of our new label, Lux Eterna Records.
In between all that, my wife and I managed to squeeze in a few days together in wine country, where I did this phone interview with Baltimore City Paper while driving the corkscrew mountain path that is Pacific Coast Highway. Then it was off to SF for a meeting and some hang time with Art (during which I taped a segment for NPR; not sure when that airs).
Now I’m back in DC for a day, then I go to Baltimore to speak about the state of music distribution in the digital age at this event hosted by Maryland Lawyers for the Arts. Friday, I have another engagement at the IP Empowerment Summit at Howard University alongside some real superstars in public policy, technology and law.
On Saturday, I pick the missus up from the airport (she stayed on in Sonoma for a training). Maybe we’ll catch a movie or just stay in with the cats and bunny. Either way, we shall have a time!
I’m hoping to bring in a few new writers to Team Contrarian in the next few weeks, to ensure the same level of quality our readers have come to expect. If you’d like to throw your hat in the ring, email casey.contrarianATgmail.com with a brief summary of why you think I should make you a star indentured servant part of our crüe. Please have writing samples available at request.
As you were.
