Work trip starts tomorrow.
Tomorrow morning I have to get up at stupid o’clock to catch a flight to South America. I’m away for two weeks, roughly following the route you see above. To explore the trip in more detail, you better go to the sosauce.com page.
I’ve been to all these locations before, but I plan to do new things in each. For example, I’ve not seen the King Penguin rookery on the Falklands Islands. Should be a fun place to take photos and a good location for a continuing video project I have on the go which should be finished by the end of the year.
On top of the destinations there are many sea days, which means I have a lot of time on my hands. To fill my time I plan to achieve:
Read three novels and record three episodes of the SFBRP. The novels are all on my iPod Touch, so this will be the first trip I do sans paper books. I hope it works out.
Do the forth edit on my “Edward” novel. I need to rearrange some chapters and rewrite a few pieces. I hope this only takes a few days. Then I’ll be able to email it out to my second round of readers to get masses of positive feedback to boost my ego.
Do the first major edit on my “Monster” novella. I don’t expect to get this finished, as there are huge amounts still to write, let alone rewrite.
Think up better working titles for the above two stories.
Video my new ring juggling routine, and maybe put an edited version up on youtube.
While I’m videoing my show, I may get a better version of my 3 Ball And Video routine than is currently available online.
I’m taking some silicones, so will work on my standard bounce juggling skills.
Also I hope to make a video of “air bouncing”, which means juggling patterns where I intentionally make balls hit each other in the air and bounce off in predictable ways. I’ve whole lists of these tricks, but have never performed them because they don’t look very good from any kind of distance. And they are really hard.
Make some new backing music for a club routine. I have some fun drum samples I want to include, but it will mostly follow the electronic video game vibe.
Oh yeah, I’ll probably perform four shows too!
That should do it! I’ll post all the results on the blog.
