Over the holiday season, I packed in the fun while taking a break from my awesome day job at Knucklepuck. Family, friends, shopping for vinyl, seeing movies, and many meals out.
It is interesting to me how stepping away from the daily routine can inspire so much thought. This year, those thoughts focused largely on three things: awareness, momentum, and good brain chemistry.
I spent a lot of time working on the latest version No Treble. This was a major project, with a complete redesign and a complete rebuild of the site, from the ground up. This also checked off all three boxes…
While that might not seem like much of a vacation, it actually was: I don’t design or code at work, so this was really an exercise of play for me. And unlike much of what I’ve done in my career, I still love the outcome weeks after.
This is a momentum project. No Treble will celebrate its 10th anniversary in May, and I have big plans for it.
While this was exciting and fun, as soon as we launched, I felt a little sadness. I realized it was due to the fact that the project was done, and I wouldn’t be able to focus on anything like it. So I started thinking: what can I do next to fill that void? Silly me… I had a project on the “maybe one day” list for about 5 years now: Corey Spins.
So that’s what I’m working on now, and it is one of the most challenging yet. Each morning around 5 am or so (and some weekends), I’m tinkering with it – thinking about every single pixel of it, tweaking, learning, and coding it up. I’m not sure when it’ll be done yet, but the journey is more important right now.
I’m also gearing up for my 10th NAMM show. We have some huge things happening this year, including a live recording of our podcast Michael Anthony (of Van Halen and Chickenfoot).
