I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.

Of Course

Shalom! (Some shalom would be nice right about now, don't you think?)

Last week I submitted my new album to all the major digital distributors, which us unundoable! Like a one-way function. Hehe. I haven't listened to the album since because I'm too scared that I'll hear something I'll want to change- and of course I can't! Ahh!

Just need some shalom.

The release date for the album is 'officially' 12/31/12... BUT, of course the entire iTunes staff isn't working for what will feel like an eon in honor of Christmas/New Year's Day. So if you're an iTunes-exclusivist, you'll have to wait until something like the 3rd of January. Oh well. The album will be available elsewhere :)

And just yesterday, my design team (hehe) finished the disc artwork, so we got that all submitted. People in New Jersey are making Peteified musical discs even as you read this. So that's exciting. And of course that means that I haven't looked at the finished disc artwork since submitting. Too scared that I'll find a mistake.

Breathe in. Breathe out.

Last time I did an album, the artwork was a bit hastily thrown together. I mean it was nifty at the time, but we didn't really think through things thoroughly. I assure you, the title of Bygones Be is intentionally vertically aligned! Of course, everybody turns it 90 degrees clockwise, the disc falls out of the sleeve, and I get a funny look. One of those "Oh, Pete." looks.

So of course the album art for this album is horizontally aligned. Just thought I'd warn you. In case you were going to try to be super-considerate/slash/polite by turning the new album 90 degrees counter-clockwise. That would be sweet and silly. Zeal without knowledge.
