Now I’m…

  • … working on my next 1,000 songs!
    – On my Songs By Andy YouTube page, I posted my 1,000 song. It was a compilation of many songs over the 5 years I’ve been posting them. Now I’m looking forward to the next 1,000!
  • … figuring out how to be a Controller
    – I was promoted at my day job! Yay, me! As happens there is that phase of “imposter syndrome.” I remind myself that any time you start something new, well, you are an imposter.
  • … liking our balcony.
    – I’m realizing I like two things, a water view, or a balcony view of the world below. Though our balcony isn’t a high floor, it affords the view of people not always knowing you are, hmm, observing them. That’s a good word – observing.
  • … liking the beginning of barrel-aged season.
    – One of my favorite breweries, Revolution Brewery, began the release of their Deep Wood series. I will say that Deth’s Tar is a fantastic run for 2021, as is Cafe Deth. I didn’t care that much for Deth by Raspberry. I thought is was a little too much raspberry, but to each their own. Can’t wait for December and Straight Jacket!.

This page is inspired by Derek Sivers. His “Now” project also harkens me back to the days of bulletin boards with footers of “I’m listening to:” and “I’m watching:, so …”

I’m listening to:

I’m watching:

I’m Andy Labis. The cute thing around my neck is our dog, Milo. I sing dorky songs to my wife each morning before I go to work, and then I post some of them on YouTube. I’m also a writer, photographer, and iPhone app developer. For good measure I also pretend I’m a Controller for a company that does interior construction.

As many a life has done, mine has taken many twists and turns, but thankfully I’ve found a wonderful woman to share my life with. I also have been blessed to have various outlets to share things I enjoy.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy exploring my universe!
