Yeah, pretty much the same as the plans for 2012. This past year really caught us at a bad time — Jude has a family to raise, and I just slacked. The size and scope of what we are planning is pretty daunting and it actually demotivated me — I was just plain scared, so I put it off and did other things. If you’ve ever seen the old stage musical The Music Man, it was a little like that for me — the kids in the school band are taught to “think” about the music rather than actually take lessons. That’s what I did — I considered this thing, a lot. But we are making progress, slowly, and it’s just going to have to be one of those when-it’s-done-it’s-done things. We have talked about that aspect of it and we both think it’s worth doing right rather than rushing it, and that it has the potential to be very awesome no matter when it comes out. But that said, I’m more serious about making progress than I have been in a while, so here’s hoping. Kat is actually helping me out with idea generation, lyric writing, and just plain organization and scheduling. So that can’t hurt.

Thanks for your patience. We’re simply not rock stars.
