Biz Trips

So here I am in San Jose... staying at a nice hotel (the Fairmont), getting ready for several days at the Game Developer Conference. I remember, back when I was starting in this industry, I LOVED coming to conferences. You got to meet new people, stay in a nice hotel, schmooze like crazy... I loved it. Now, it's more of a necessary annoyance than something I'm really excited about. I'd really rather be home, playing with Zoë and feeding her breakfast. :) Maybe it's age, or the inevitable cynicism that seems to infect everyone who's been in this industry for a few years. Still, the gamer in me is pretty excited about seeing the next great thing. :) Ah, it's so fun to be a geek.

Still, I'm not completely jaded. Attended an MS meeting yesterday and met up with a large group of guys that I used to work with there. It was like nothing had changed, except now I was the client and they were buying the beers. :) You gotta love that.

Lots of meetings with composers and other audio guys on the horizon - most wanting me to get them some work. I can't blame them, the life of a freelancer is too scary for me, that's why I'm the corporate weenie that I am. :)

Amanda and Zoë will be joining me today. We will see friends tonight, and get ready for Consonance this weekend. I'm very nervous about playing music with Talis and Vaurien this weekend, but somehow I imagine we'll all have a very good time, no matter what. :)

  • Live and In Concert - Duckon 2010

    I don't know what they were thinking, but the kind folks at Duckon ( especially Jan DiMasi) have asked me to be the Filk Fund guest at Duckon in June…
