Ashton Cassady was made and is now here, as of Nov 29th at 10:39 AM. A hell of a year. I didn't realize it had been that long since I wrote a blog but there you go. The cd "Losing Form" is done, EXCEPT for the artwork and packaging accompanying the physical cd...That is also done in mind, I am just waiting on a person with the skills to actually do the computer graphics....I do not have those!
SO...you can expect a cd that is my best yet quite soon...i know I have said that before, but this time I MEAN IT!
Pregnancy was hard for me. I went off of all anti-depressants to begin with...and at first it was okay! I thought I was good. But it takes a while for them to truly leave your system and the shit hit the fan....I spent a large portion of the summer under siege. Unable to bear waking up. So I went to the doctor and got back on a low dose of a med that has been around forever...they know that it cause the fetus no harm. It took a minute but my head came around. My spirit was happy. It is hard to manage a day not to mention your life with a 5,000 lb rock on your spirit, with claws from below dragging you further down. I researched it and depression can harm the fetus more than any med if left untreated. I didn't want to set him up like that. So I got meds and he is here now and he is perfect. Then I was huge and working in both a dog grooming facility and an after-school music program for troubled kids. I am learning! Not an easy thing to do (either really, dogs do protest being groomed). Then we moved and I gave birth at the same time. So I couldn't quite get it together to do the graphics and packaging. But I am at home with this sweet soul in a diaper on my chest and i am gonna just pay someone to finish the graphics. Sometimes that is the best way to go.
Rasputina does plan on touring this year, and I plan on a Polly Panic tour to support my new album. Details for all tours to be announced....It will be summer and fall before much of anything besides my cd becoming available soon. (I swear)
I hope that your life is going well...as far as I know it is the only one we have...
