babe: pig in the city [redux]

a couple of you might remember the first time i used that title for a post. me and amanda took a few days for ourselves after i got done working on recording. so we came into new york city yesterday and are having a mini-vacation. i don’t know how much of a genius you have to be to want to stay in new york in the middle of february, but that’s how smart we are. it’s cold here, but that in no way diminishes any of the beauty or grandeur of this place. i know i’m glamorizing it, but i don’t care. the first thing me and amanda did today was go to rockefeller center. because 1. we’re tourists and 2. it’s awesome. we went to the top of the building and got a pretty good view of this whole island. here’s a picture looking towards upper manhattan. you can see all of central park and, past that, harlem.

here’s a shot facing lower manhattan. directly in front is the empire state building. if you look real hard, you might be able to see the statue of liberty on the right side waaaay in the back.

and then a really cool shot of my and amanda at the top.

if you want better description of the day’s events, check out amanda’s blog

and for the record, the recording went way better than i even hoped. we had the goal of tracking five songs in two weeks and ended up recording ten. there’s one that will probably never see the light of day and that might be for the best. all in all though, it was great to record in the place we did and with the people we did and i’m really looking forward to seeing how it all turns out

  2. I think being an American in a different part of the US labels you as an “out-of-towner” or something along those lines, rather than tourist. I believe that nowadays, when someone says “tourist”, one thinks of an oblivious Asian walking into oncoming traffic to take a picture of a street sign. You know, like my entire family does on a regular basis. Stinking tourists.
