1.33 - The one with the cheerleading cows

While driving through the back roads of'll never know what you will see. Usually tractors that take up too much road and that are going way too slow...a large field with a single tree in the middle...makeshift landing strips for small airplanes...odd shapped buildings that are just randomly placed...cows cheerleading...ok what?!?!

That's right...on our way to the recording studio (which was in the middle of nowhere...more on that later), we went past a farm and saw a heard of cows. Not too uncommon for farmland in Ontario...but the strange thing about it was that in the middle of the appeared to be a single cow in the middle, standing ontop of the other cows. You know how they lift up the cheerleaders and they stand clapping and do their thing? That's what it looked like...I'm sure there's a good explaination to why that single cow was "standing" on the other there was a platform...but the cheerleader idea is more fun.

Back to the recording studio...

It was probably one of the best times I've ever had playing music. When you watch shows that interview musicians and they always say that they are working all the the studio...laying down tracks...its hard work...blah, blah, blah. They are soo is alot of work...its hard work and it takes alot of time. I fully appreciate the time and effort it takes musicians to record. Now we didn't record an entire cd...just a few songs for a compilation Christmas fundraising CD...but it was still fun. I loved it and can't wait to go do it again. Not sure when the CD comes out...but I'll let you know and you can all buy it...and I'll autograph it...

yes...that's my shameless plug
