I’d been trying to think of something to blog about, because I enjoy doing it and I haven’t posted anything in a while, but I spent some time yesterday afternoon wracking my brain and got nothin’. UNTIL yesterday evening!
Craig finally received a message from Hanson about the remix contest, and it said that he officially won! Whoo!!
It’s hard to believe that we just threw our (I use “we” and “our,” but really it’s “he” and “his”) hat in the ring for the fun of it, not thinking Craig’s would actually win the whole thing. And then he did! I’m so proud!
He did great work and his mix deserves to be heard. Thank you to everyone for voting, reposting, and reposting again. And for not getting annoyed with our incessant “keep voting!!” tweets and posts. It was really amazing to see people we knew (and didn’t know) rally together and support Craig!
Then we talked to Issac Hanson on the phone. Well, mostly Craig, but I got to talk to him for a few minutes.
Isn’t it weird how when I was 10 years old and I loved Hanson, I had no idea that one day I would be walking from Belmont to Vanderbilt with them barefoot or talking to Issac Hanson on the phone because my husband is having his remix featured on their UK single release? I think so. 10-year-old me, eat your heart out.
Anyway. I just wanted to take the time to brag on my super talented producer husband and say how excited we are that this is happening!
Oh, and for your amusement, via my friend Noelle, here is a lead paragraph from a real news story today in Florence, Alabama:
A naked man claiming to be Jesus Christ broke into a residence where a woman and her young children were home late Monday afternoon and took all of the photos off the walls before he was taken into custody.
…things we couldn’t make up if we tried.
