Had an artist bail on a project today. A good gig...company owned work-for-hire, new launch, new character. I'm not sure he was quite right for the book, but it still kind of bums you out to have someone walk away from something you think could be cool.
John Siuntres called yesterday afternoon to confirm a ten o'clock taping for his Word Balloon podcast. Yep, yep. Sounded good. Wrote it down in big letters on the whiteboard on the fridge. Wife asked about it when she got home, told her. Kicked around what projects I might talk about. So at 9:55 I ran out to the store for some milk and baby grub, completely spacing off the interview, missing his call.
Luckily John's an understanding guy, and I caught him thirty minutes later.
Bob Seger. Come on. What's not to love? Anyway, check out The Distance sometime when you're bored. "Shame On the Moon," "Even Now," "Roll Me Away," and "Coming Home" just get better with age:
