... I'm really surprised how hard today turned out to be... it didn't really sink in until around 7pm on a TTC bus heading home (I skipped out for a few hours to play hockey).
... pack up the studio... no big deal, right?
It's been difficult...
Not just because I realized how many things I have stashed away in the place, but I started feeling really guilty not taking pics of every nook and cranny of the studio before pulling it apart.
Well... share on Facebook I guess... I don't even know... I guess I just wanted to remember (proof) how great this place was to me... how awesome (beautiful) it was, for me, in its prime.
I'd like to believe the last few days here, the studio was running at and looking it's best... and I think that's why I feel bad not taking more pics... and the one I did (of the live room) turned out blurry!
I finished the Age Of Days acoustic EP this morning too... we went back and forth a few times on mixes but my internet was cutting in and out and I really needed to start pulling the control room apart... I wish I could've got a chance to play the final mixes here for the guys... it sounds awesome... I think it sounds awesome... but the truck and people are booked for tomorrow... had to get packin'.
I feel the very last song on the very last project here was one of, if not, the best sounding tune I've produced, recorded, and mixed... just funny how it's for my own band... considering how I feel about things like that... life is funny sometimes.
... I actually set my speakers up again to listen to the track one more time... the lady stopped by and I wanted her to hear it too... the last song to be played through my mains, on loud...
... I battled the urge all evening to just set everything back up... even though I know that's not really possible at this point.
Despite the rollercoaster of emotions today, I know for several reasons this is the right move to make and the right time to make it... until then... I hope this f'n works.
