End of the tour, back to work…assignments…

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

Hi Guys,

Thank you so much to all of you who came out to the shows on this last tour (even if you didn’t but wanted to). It was a great trip with lots of old friends. Now I’m back in New Hampshire and getting into the studio again. Been doing lots of drawing and improvising some music. However…

I could use some assignments. I always work well with assignments and sort of miss college sometimes for that reason. As members of the Jeff Mitchell E-mail Announcement List, you are officially being asked for ideas for Things to Write Songs About. Evil webmaster Faust has already got the ball rolling with a couple fine ideas..

1. Write a decent hymn for Unitarians (there is a perceived lack)
2. Write a song about pizza (also lacking)

You’ve got the idea. Anyway, take care of yourselves. See you soon, Jeff
