The Whirlwind That I Call Life

It’s been a while since I posted a blog. And for good reason.

I’ve been busier than I ever have been in my life. I told you guys I would write more when I had time and finally I’ve got some ambition to write. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to write in a while. It’s just that I haven’t had a ton of time. Over the past year, we’ve launched Devilcat Amplifiers, Developed our guitars, and managed to grow our Band and Orchestra Division at Pladd Dot beyond our expectations. Nonetheless, inspiration comes in different forms and my inspiration to blog again came with the website re-design. I felt like it was about time for a re-design of the site and when I found the right color palate and theme, I just went with it. As usual, I’ll be tweaking the design for a while but I’m pretty happy with where it is right now. I wasn’t really trying to go for a “flat” design and I’m certainly not against skeuomorphism. I just felt like with the new album on the way, it was time for a different look and feel. Speaking of which, the album is designed to look like something it’s not, while hiding another look. I’ll give you bonus points to the first person who can tell me what it is. : )

Anyway, I’ve been stupid busy. Last year we were struggling to have one amp ready for the NAMM show. This year we released FOUR new ones. The Mean Jean stole the show with her small footprint and big sound. Of course, the new Ashlee colors and “Stripey” series did well too.

Sebastian turned 13 and Packer just turned 2. We’ve finally got his allergies a little tamed down through drugs and weekly injections. It’s not perfect, but it beats watching the little fella scratch all the time. Ashlee’s allergies are doing much better and…

HOLY CRAP has it been raining in Statesboro…..

I will write more soon because there’s something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while - I’ve just been searching for the time and the correct words to say. Until then, see you soon!
