yeah, so, life can be quite a bitch, but there's no use dwelling on it and being miserable all the time.

i'm getting by, my dad's cancer is being dealt with as best it can at the moment, and my head doesn't hurt so much right now.

i really need to move outta here, get a new place, new perspective, a...

thanks man

I shot those with a the 20D and the 50 1.8 and believe it or not the 70-200 f4...I love that fucking lens...not the fastest but you can still manage some sweet concert shots with steady hands...someday I will upgrade, but for now it gets me by

14 songs in one night? damn...good luck with the album!

johnnythsaint:

No photos from me, unfortunately. I woulda loved to have snapped a few, but with my luck I just would've ended up in jail and mourning a smashed camera if I'd had one with me. I did see several people taking pictures of the stabbing and some other events that night. I'm wonderin' if any of those are gonna show up anywhere....

Any word on that recording? How'd it come out? Should I be expecting an update telling me where to buy a copy soon?

I like the song as much as the other two. I read your blog about it, so I won't call it a new song, but it's new to me. I really hope you guys can get a CD or record out sometime, I know I'd buy it.

johnnythsaint:

And yeah, I pimped you guys out to all on my list with a bulletin over there. I hope that's ok.

Cool, I'm glad you're still pluggin' away with the band and I really dig the songs. I checked out your myspace page and sent a request over there so I can keep up to datye on the band. I definitely hear you about the one step forward, two steps back routine. I've been workin' with some people here on startin' somethin' for months and we've written some songs, but still don't have a place to practice, so we can't even really tell how it's gonna sound. And that's not even mentioning the fact that I'm bustin' my ass just to try to keep us all on the same page about what type of music we're playin'. We all have a few styles we really like and so our first few songs were all over the place. I think we're gettin' there, but it's not gonna take off at all if we don't get ahold of some place to turn it up soon.

you know what sucks?
writing a song way out of your vocal range and not realizing it until you try to lay down the tracks in the studio. hell, at practice it always sounded close enough...for rocknroll, ah well.
so, yeah, still working on some songs, having a crisis of faith over my guitar tone, and generally trying not to let my life spiral...

Fuck man, don't you know that 80's flashbacks are like Vietnam flashbacks for our generation? How could you do that to me?

I definitely hear you on the outlook changing with the physical shape. I've lost over 30 pounds in the time that I've been up here and my perspective has gotten better and better.
