Counting my chickens before they're hatched, plucked and deep fried.
Man, it doesn't take much. A recent note from Sonicbids informing me that my tune Here Comes The Weather was selected by a company specializing in film/TV placement had me over the moon. Naturally, I took it as a sign that I was meant to drink a little too much, so Saturday found me quite hungover, but by Sunday, I was back in proper health and took Catherine out for a bit of wine and a movie.
Obviously, my celebrating ways are a bit premature, since this might all lead to absolutely nothing, but still, to have even the teeniest bit of recognition just felt super, super good.
Of course, given that the US of A and the rest of the world are about to head into a global depression, I'm not convinced that my timing for trying to sell something is all that optimal. On the bright side, though, I'm pretty sure history shows that entertainment does well during tough times, since people are so desperate to escape the real world, so maybe I'm in a fabulous position, after all!
Regardless, THANK YOU SONICBIDS FOR YOUR SERVICE! You guys rawk and if I ever get even a little bit famous, you guys are getting a major shout out!
The icing on the cake to all this? The Man In Nashville has resurfaced and might just sing one of my tunes! Damn, for an atheist, I feel blessed.
