2010 was a hell of a year. Alas, a new year is upon us and not a moment too soon.
I spent the first day of 2011 preparing for my trip to South Africa, where I will be spending the month of January assisting in the treatment and care of children who are infected with HIV. There’s not much I can say about this trip at the moment but I look forward to sharing my experiences and reporting on my findings with everyone very soon.
I was initially hoping to do a comprehensive 2010 year-in-review for myself and Strange Famous Records. However, it’s looking like that will take much more work than I have time for at the moment. I’ll save the details for a lengthy chapter of the book I keep promising to write. We released a lot of great albums, filmed some incredible videos, and toured the world. Some of us became engaged while others had children. On the flip side, a of us lost some close friends and family throughout the course of the year.
I want to thank everyone who gave support and contributed to the positive experiences of 2010. I’d also like to give my heartfelt condolences to my friends and family who are dealing with the loss of some great people. Stay up and trudge through the muck for the sake of yourselves as well as those who are around you.
It looks like I will spend this year involving myself with world travel, charity work, song recording, video production, book writing, album releasing, punching myself in the face and hopefully losing the 150 pounds I’ve gained since high school. Here’s to having a positive, productive and healthy 2011!
