This "write post window" has been open for four hours. Seems I can't really come up with much to say. Hmmm. I guess I could tell you what Animal Club has been up to. Let's do that.
Animal Club went on a hiatus after the New York Sketchfest in June. We've been going at it for six years now, and some time off was desperately needed. We've been writing new stuff during that time, so it's not like we stopped working, we just stopped reaping the benefits of working. We've got a nice batch of new material that we'll be trying out when we wake up. We're taking out time with it because we think we have to at this point; after three years of touring and writing and performing and producing, we've kind of hit a point where we need to make a real impact with our next show. So that's that. In the meantime, we've been "hired" as "writers" for a project we're not really allowed to talk about. It's a nice affirmation, but we don't know what benefits it'll pay beyond that. As soon as we're allowed to talk about it, you'll know. Ruth is moving on to different pastures, having spent the past six months touring with McDonald's, and she's gotten more offers while on tour. Obviously we wish her the best.
Personally, I've taken up residence at iO as the director of media development and booking shows and shit like that. It keeps me very busy, but now I'm officially employed full time in showbiz, so there's that.
Tom keeps on trucking, Mike keeps on fucking, and Shane lives by himself. All in all, it's a good time to an AC member. But it's not a good time to be a blogger. Wonder why that is?
Anyway, I hope all of you are caught up now, and we'll let you know when we decide to start performing again.
