you may or may not have noticed, but on the front page of www.sleepingatlast.com we added a countdown clock… this mysterious clock is counting down ’til we announce our Sleeping At Last next project. i am so, so very excited about it and just can’t wait to pull the wraps off of the “secrets” we’ve been keeping for so long now!
lately, our days have been non-stop misc. preparation for it all, so it’ll be wonderful to fill this blog up with details, once the project is announced. cannot wait…
completely unrelated, i’ve become addicted to the bravo tv show, “work of art”… it follows the EXACT same formula as all of those reality, contest tv shows and i love it. there’s a reason that formula gets used over and over again. it works! and because the cast is always different, it never gets old. i’ve spent more hours than i’d like to admit watching project runway, top chef, top chef masters, etc. and “work of art” will be no different. for some reason it seems like an obvious fit for a show, so i’m not sure why it hasn’t been on the air sooner… with art, it’s so visual that it’s fun and easy for an audience to get wrapped up in all… (top chef is amazing, but you can’t taste the food, so you have no idea who should win outside of judging personalities!) not to mention, artists are usually very interested/bizarre people to watch! good tv all around! it’s fun…
anyway, enjoy your weekend! can’t wait ’til that coundown runs out, so that we can spill the beans! (what does that saying even really mean?? strange…)
Happy Summer, Pals! Hope it’s coming along beautifully for you so far!
A COUNTDOWN BEGINS…
Admittedly, we’ve been a bit quiet lately… But for good reason!! We’ve been working away on our many misc. secret projects! I hate to say that we’re still keeping ‘em a secret, but we promise to make an announcement very SOON. In fact, if you hop over to the front page of www.sleepingatlast.com right this moment, you’ll see EXACTLY how soon we’ll be making the announcement!!! (Sorry for being so cryptic, guys… but we are so very excited to share our big news with you soooon!)
In the meantime, we do however have a couple non-secret, but still exciting things to let you know about…
FOURTRACK iPHONE APP PROMOTION!
We’re super excited to announce that we are now appearing in the iPhone app, “FourTrack” from Sonoma Wire Works! They’ve added our song “Porcelain” to the “PromoTracks” section of the app, where folks can download “stems” of the song for free to re-mix and play along with! (What are “Stems,” you ask? – Individual components of a mix, separately saved for the purpose of use in a remix. ie: a mix featuring only Drums and Bass… or only Strings… make sense?) For those of you that already own the FourTrack app, just tap your way into the “PromoTracks” portion of the app to download our song for FREE! If you don’t already own the FourTrack recording app, you can purchase it from the App Store, right here.
We recently mentioned in our blog how much we love using FourTrack, so we’re very excited to have our music paired up with it! It’s a great tool for musicians to jot ideas down and it’s beautifully designed. We lovvvve it. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy hearing “Porcelain” in a new way…

Ryan & Dan – Sleeping At Last
P.S. Here’s a list of stuff we love right now…
iPhone 4 (it’s only the greatest gadget of all time…)
Double Rainbows (visit our blog to understand that one. ha. love that guy…)
Have you ever seen something so beautiful you almost couldn’t take it in? This guy has, and it’s quite an emotional roller coaster.
What Does It Mean!?! I’m sure with over two million views, a lot of you have seen this already. But it’s just too good to not share. You have to admire his enthusiasm and after watching some of his other videos you get a sense he’s just as excited about life itself. Of course with any internet sensation you’ve also got the auto tune version.
and then there’s this…
So let’s all take a lesson from Hungrybear and live every day like there’s a double rainbow all the way across the sky.
It’s amazing that even after spending three weeks in, what I woul call, some of the most amazing places in the country, it still feels good to come home. Even if home is a boring little burb in the midwest. My new wife and I just got home from our honeymoon in Alaska and Hawaii. It was absolutely amazing. We had never been to Alaska before and it is definitely one my new favorite places. You can hardly open your eyes without seeing something beautiful. We saw tons of animals and glaciers and mountains and lakes and bays. It’s astounding.
On top of an awesome honeymoon, we had an amazing wedding as well. If you’ve planned a wedding before you know it can be a lot of work and stress but it usually comes together in the end. We had an amazing time and we feel incredibly lucky to have had such an amazing day and such amazing friends and family. Ryan’s best man speech goes down in my book as the best ever. It was awesome. All in all this past month has been more fun than anyone deserves to have.
