Hello Sweet Friends.
Just got back from an extra long practice. Getting ready to give you Holiday show 2007.
Cant wait to Champagne, High Five, and Christmas carol, with you all.
Did you know Polyphonic is personally baking cookies for the occasion.
Speaking of cookies.
If you're looking to shed a few pounds after the festivities are over, I personally suggest... by the way this is actually a video where you can see the whole choir practicing upstairs in the rehearsal triplex. The sound is the band downstairs. I'm not sure why you only see the tops of our heads.... I'm a bit analog. I will try to fix.

Also read a little tidbit from my dear friend Two Tone Turner on the making of The Polyphonic Spree version Carol Of The Bells.

That song was super fun to make! The girls, mostly Jennifer and Jessica, if I remember right, came up with the "original lyrics," based on Louis' direction for that part of the script, then I worked them into an SATB arrangement that worked for us from a copy of the sheet music Potsie found. We learned it around the piano one morning in Jess' awesome living room, and then rushed over to Mark's to record it. There were only about six or seven of us that day, so we all sang multiple parts in the multi-tracking. Mark even sang the bass part with me, I helped out on alto (a stretch, believe me), and Julie, Potsie, and I tripled up on the tenor since we were short on guys. Mark and I did the mix, with Mark engineering, of course (one of his many specialties). It took us the shorter part of long, busy morning.

Ah, the good old days.

"Complicated Heart of Mine"
Wow.... life has a way of throwing curve balls.... I guess thats because it is life. If you didn't feel the ups and downs, you would just be numb, going through the motions.
Just came back from some great food, wine, and conversation, with my sweet friend Julie D. Life... the present, future, and everything in between.

So where does that leave me with you tonight.

Light a candle. Dim the lights. Be present. Listen to number 11 on The Fragile Army.

heart u all
*jessica*

p s.... I really do.
