It has been a while since my last post and a lot has happened. In addition to my regular life, I took on a “country” life. Here is a glimpse of that, including my new house, truck, chicks and goats.

A couple of months ago I started playing bass in a band called Chasing Dinosaurs. These guys don’t mess around, and we already made a music video for a song on an upcoming 7”. Check it out at the link above.

Quentin and I stayed a couple nights in a small cabin at Shabbona State Park in IL. We got real artistic with the long exposure feature on the new camera.

What a treat to be able to take a break from a recording session and go hang out with some elephants! Hamadal and I took a break to go to Park W for a day. Although I wasn’t particularly eager to step away from the album (of which we are getting down to the wire on), it turned out to be a great respite.

Here’s some photos from the last few days hanging with Tal National in Niamey.

All is well in Niger, although my head is stuck so far in the new Tal National album it has been hard to think about other things like taking photos. Here is one I took trying out the long exposure feature on my new camera. This is the center where the studio is located, where I am spending the majority of my time here.

Scenes from Niamey. Today the Tal National performed a “corporate” gig at the main brewing company in Niamey. Complementary Biere Niger and food!

I am back in Niger to record Tal National’s next album. We’re having a good time together so far. The studio is set up and sounding great. I still haven’t heard much of the new material, so I’m looking forward to the days ahead.
I have my own car and am driving around town. To be challenged like this after feeling so in control of many aspects of my life is really interesting. It’s definitely something that is easier to do the less you think about it.
More updates soon!
