lady danville’s 2011 new year’s resolutions

i’m not sure how much faith i have in new year’s resolutions… i used to always say “i’m gonna go to the gym and get buff this year!” and then i would go to the gym on january 1st, and so would everyone else. and we’d all feel good and proud of ourselves and our new fancy bodies (to come). but then january 15th would come around. and half of my gym buddies would no longer be at the gym. and by february 1st (or most likely sooner than this), i would join the quitters. i think i wouldnt ever make it because i didnt have anyone holding me accountable. i can always start next year…
this week, the guys and i sat down and thought about some things that were important to us, for lady danville in 2011. and we’re going to try our damnest to stick it out and make it happen. and not only are we holding each other accountable. but we want you to hold us accountable too.  so here’s to full transparency in the new year!

    Those are all really good! I’d LOVE to see a LD music video, or to be able to go to the mall and buy your album from the music store :D! I think ya’ll should come back to NY, but come to the upstate [Albany, NY xP]

    Maybe number 10 could be that you guys could perform at a childrens hospital or a hospital for the terminally ill ? I know it may be a little depressing, but I bet it would really brighten their day to hear ya’ll sing for them 🙂

  12. Sophi says:

    Perhaps while you are in France playing for Sophie Roux you
    can also make a Sophie Roux music video :] Maybe since you’re
    already trying for getting your songs on TV shows etc. why not add
    getting a song on the radio? Might I suggest Boston’s 88.9 WERS?
