He was hoping I would take their 8:45 AM Thursday morning opening but uh, no way. I am already sure I'll be scrambling until the last minute to get everything together for the show, plus my one current album in revisions.
(Heh. One current album. In November. When I am normally putting in late nights to get a glut of holiday deadline albums done. I think even if I hadn't decided to transition away from albums being my main thing, the market did it for me. Yay big companies with teams of designers in Peru & India who can charge 20% of what I do!)
