This site's sorta been up and down for the past little while. I think that may be its fate - I keep fucking with it, and it ends up going down for a while. Right now I'm convinced that it's going to be up for a long time uninterrupted, but that would be inconsistent, wouldn't it?
I got a friendly and presuasive email a few weeks back from someone who was pissed because I said so little about the Seattle show. I was going to write some stuff here to make up for it, but now I realize that I wrote a fair amount of crap in the tour journal section, so fuck it! I'll write something new.
You're all going to hate this, but it seems that at this point all we do is play private parties in Chicago. It's lunacy! But it's hard to be a 3-piece rock band with one piece living 2,000 miles away. I mean, it's not hard, it's just hard to do the things most rock bands do, like play shows and hang out at the cool clubs. We have no time for this sort of thing. But we're getting set up to tour in September, and we're going to try to get to just about everywhere between then and October - not straight through, but here and there, you know, sort of fit things in where we can.
What else? The new record looks & sounds swell. It's coming out in August. I've been telling you that for months now, I know. We're suing Captain Splendid and 12 other Silkworm fans who have our songs on Napster. Andy's doing it for a school project. Andy bough a Telecaster over ebay. He went to NYC to pick up the guitar & party with his big-city pals, and the guitar got stolen that night. That is tragic!
It's raining in Seattle but the temperature is just right. I am sick and hope to make it through to tomorrow. Thanks for sticking around.
Once again, practically a month long break. I can't imagine anyone is still out there paying any attention. Shit! Sorry! It's fucking absurd, one thing goes wrong, then another thing goes wrong. Bullshit. This fucking high-tech world is not worth it. If you all would've just given me your phone numbers or street addresses, I could've called you all up by now, swore alot, and told you what's going on with the band - instead I've been buying books and staying up late, trying to figure out what's wrong with my stupid computer. It's not worth it! Fuck it all! I'm moving to Mexico! They don't got computers in Mexico!
But we did play a show in Chicago, a fun party, and it ended up in a Cubs game and it was nice to see everyone etc., I won a game of pool, we got the artwork back for the record and it looks good, it looks great. I'm excited. It's called Lifestyle and it should be out in August, sometime in August.
I know it's been forever, but I'm gonna leave it at that. Please tell me if you see anything blatantly wrong with the site, I haven't looked around too much yet. Thanks for listening to me.
The show was a hoot! I'll have more to say about it later on. I'm in a hurry, I gotta go watch the Oscars®, but I wanted to say that Andy had me put his guitar on eBay, so if you wanna buy it, buy it there!
That's all, more later.
I know we're playing a show tonight and all, and we're all doing our exercises and getting psyched up and doing all that stuff we do the day of a show, but Andy got all excited and decided to sell a guitar! It's his old Les Paul. It's a very rockin' guitar, Andy likes it but he got an older one that he wants to keep and he can't justify having so damned many guitars.
