1.13.08: Where am I?

Wow, where am I? I'm in one place, a place called "love-being-home-ville," la ciudad de paz, la zona de amor, c'est fantastique! Forgive me for checking out of bloggerville for about a month. Did you miss me? I needed a break, but I have been keeping a diary, which I will share some of it with you.

The public world of Mute Math, which is mostly all of that world, has cracked open again: one, with a call for people to be involved in the shooting our new video for "Control;" two, the new tour with Matchbox 20 and Alanis Morissette will soon get underway; and three, the many new ideas for songs and the process of compiling and editing all this ideas into one solid, cohesive collection has begun. I have some video of the session which I will soon share, but I need to edit it.

Thanks for your patience in all of this.

Now, concerning the bass lessons. I just didn't have enough time this season of home dwelling: let's see-new Mute Math album or bass lesson videos? I had to opt for the first. However, please do not give up hope! I'm positive that these things will sprout along the way of convenience.

Gracias@home.com . . . happy new year.com

Thanks for posting. I'm sure it's great to be home after being away for so long.

Thanks for posting and even blogging. I'm sure there are many other things you'd rather do with your time, but I certainly appreciate catching the more personal perspective from your side with the band (even if bass lessons aren't included).

Good luck to ya'll and I hope everything goes well with the new tour and that you're all rested up and healthy.

A new Mute Math album is, in a way, a bass lesson. ;) Your absence from the blog world made me realize that I had not posted on my own blog since September! lol!

Hey Roy,

I was wondering if you were going to blog again :) Hope you had a nice holiday. I can't wait for what the year has in store for Mute Math. If Voice and Clockwork are any indication of what the new album's going to sound like, I think you guys will be even bigger.

And deservedly so.

I have to say that I have always had mixed feelings about your blogging absence. Of course you are missed, but if it meant you were spending much needed time at home, I think that is the right priority. :) In the midst of all the touring, etc. that bands do, and the fact that I am alway's disappointed when my favorites don't stop here, I still always try to keep in mind those they have to leave to come out my way.

Anyway, glad things are good, and that you have had some good time and home. I will be one of the "ants" in the audience in Row 10, center, in Salt Lake City. Will I be able to say "hello" at all this tour?

O.K. I'm long-winded, as usual. LOL

I'm very much looking forward to the new music.

God's blessings, Melanie

It's nice to hear from you again. I hope the new album is going well. Let me know how I can get involved with the video. Jen and I have been to so many shows that it would be a shame to miss the opportunity. We are trying to get to one of the shows in the area. Maybe Turning Stone or Seneca Niagara. Later

You guys rule.

Glad to hear from you, Roy! Looks like things are coming together...

I'll be seeing you all play from afar at MSG next month. One of my dreams of you men have finally come true - Mute Math playing at MSG!

Huzzah! Roy has returned.

I heard "Control" was the next single. I thought ya'll were leaning toward "Noticed" so I am pleasantly surprised. I'm looking forward to the new video and album. And I'm also looking forward to your next headlining tour, though I'm not looking forward to trekking the streets of Boston for it. ;)

Welcome back.

Hey thanks for posting I hope the new album, tour and video turn out great. Also Roy check out this video and tell me what you think


its a Christmas Jam me and some friends put together, but in the middle we have a Mute Math inspired drum jam.

Hope to see some more bass lessons up soon also.

Chad and I really wanted to make it out to be "Extras" in the video! Today we found out we could still be part of it even though we weren't at the rehearsal. The thought of being able to make it was exciting but we decided it would be better to catch a MM show in Europe. That was a hard decision because being in our favorite band's music video is a life experience that doesn't come around very often! Hope the opportunity comes up again. We'd be there for sure :) Looking forward to the edited video you are working on. Enjoy being Home. We are excited that you are working on new material. Don't worry about blogging if it means you are spending time being creative.
