Competing priorities

So this remix competition popped up and it's proving too hard to resist.  Not that I'm vying for a prize, but I want to check out the stems, and put my spin on things.  I own this album and the song could be good one to remix, as it's very sparse in instrumentation.  Similar to much of my Bon Iver Project in nature, the track has an approximate tempo with no "click".  I'll post up a link once I have something to submit.  Sadly, anyone reading this may be used to my delayed posting at this point, so it might not seem out of the ordinary at all.  ;)

So I spent some time cleaning up and streamlining the studio today.  I've been playing out lately a good bit with my band and I always seem to come back to a mess as I'm always borrowing equipment from one place or another.  If either project ever cash flows positive, I'm fairly certain that I would just buy a duplicate of everything I already own and nothing amazing and new, at least right away.  For me, a messy environment is a detriment to focus and productivity, period.
